Flagged (left), Unflagged (right)

There are many options when looking at the bristles in your brooms material, stiffness, color, etc. One option is a flagged or unflagged bristle.

The ends of flagged bristles look like split hairs these bristles are ideal for sweeping up fine powders or debris in dry areas. When used in wet applications it is common for these bristles to become matted-up and dirty.

Unflagged bristles are commonly used in wet applications, and are ideal for larger debris. They will not, however, sweep up the fine debris as effectively as a flagged bristle will.

Both flagged and unflagged brooms have their applications within many facilities. Choosing the correct one can make your clean-up job easier.
