Positioned as a high-end product, O-Wipe is a solution that implements in a single product the request to be able to wash, dry and vacuum a dirty surface.
Initially conceived only for glass surfaces, its technology also allows its application on other types of surfaces. Its features allows the nebulization of a detergent liquid, the washing of the surface with a roller and the drying with a suction system.

AN INNOVATIVE CLEANING TOOL
O-Wipe is a product able to cover the entire cleaning process of a surface in a small amount of time, just in one pass. It has am electronic nebulizer of cleaning liquid, activated with a button easily reachable by the finger while holding it; then, thanks to a counter-rotating cleaning roller in microfibre it will wash the surface removing the dirt by friction and mechanical force. Lastly, it will suck wet residues from the surface thanks to a suction system, placed at the top of the cleaning head, powered by a squeegee.

SUCTION SYSTEM
Consisting of a suction motor and relative suction pipe (in blue) and tank for the sucked liquids (light blue) that can be emptied thanks to a cap on the body.

ELECTRONICS
The system is powered with a single rechargeable battery, and a small controller for the two buttons, which are one for the nebulization and the other for the suction

NEBULIZER SYSTEM
The system starts from the liquid tank: from here, the button activates the electronic nebulization, which sucks the liquid and atomizes it through the nozzle on the product neck.

WATERTIGHT SYSTEM
The tightness of all liquids in the various tanks is guaranteed by a set of watertight valves that allow the liquid to enter from one direction only, preventing it from being dispersed in any inclination.

TECHNOLOGY AND ERGONOMICS
The team has designed the interiors of the product to ensure an optimal experience during use: the ergonomics are designed so as to arrange all the heavy components in the upper part of the product, so when in use unloading this weight completely on the surface, making it ergonomic and comfortable. Also, it is provided with an articulated neck that adapts to any condition and curvature of the surface.
