Description1000 x 8mm mini click chimney rod, for use in all flues up to 125mm (5″) where access is very restricted. These rods are the most flexible in our range and yet are very strong. They have a male brass anti-snag ferrule and are ideally suited to Gas and Oil flues. With the 300mm Duct cleaning brush attached, they will gain access through a 25mm opening and sweep a 5″ flue with ease. The 8mm and 10mm mini click rods are compatible with each other. We have two specifically designed heads to attach to the rods in the mini click lock range and adaptors to stick any third party brush head that uses either M10 or 1/2″ Whitworth threads.
Mini Click Range
These rods have been designed for maximum flexibility capable of going around a 45° or even 90° bend with bespoke miniature ferrules and sweeping heads that can fit into the most restricted access points.
Naval Grade Brass for Complete Corrosion Resistance
Rodtech only uses the highest quality material in the manufacturing of their Rods. This includes UK sourced Navel grade Brass; for hundreds of years, chimney sweeping equipment has been made from brass due to its nonferrous properties. Rodtech is proud to continue this tradition Rodtech Brass click ferrules are not susceptible to corrosion compared to Aluminium or stainless steel, giving unrivalled longevity.
Rodtech Brass Click Lock (single button advanced locking system)
This patented design allows the user a single button for connection and disconnection. The D shaped Ferrule does not rely on the button to keep the Rods connected; as the Rods Spin, they lock together, remaining secure, to disconnect the rods a simple flick of the wrist in the opposite direction that the rods were spinning while still connected to the drill the user will hear a “Click” place the connected ferrules in the palm of a hand to take the weight off and use the free hand to press the button. This advanced single button locking system allows for direction identification when using a camera.
This unique design has been added to all male ferrules to prevent catching on any shelves or lips within the flue. As the centrifugal force spins the Rod against the surface, the contours of this unique ferrule will lift itself off the obstruction and continue down with no damage sustained. A traditional rod can snag on the way down, get caught, and increase the risk of being cut or damaged, especially when at maximum flexibility.
Buttonless Drill Driver
Rodtech click technology can have no button on the drill driver to connect the rods while working from the fireplace/appliance. With the use of centrifugal force as the Rod spins, it will lock to the drill driver. To remove, stop the drill and slide the rod off, Saving time.
Temperature resistant Rods
The Rodtech Rods are made from a unique copolymer that allows for extreme weather conditions without worry of failure. They have been designed to be fully functional at -35° maintaining their flexibility; the Rods can even be sterilised in case they are ever used on a bee’s nest and need a clean.
Meter Length Rods
This is important for straightforward valuation as to the height of any obstruction within the flue.
Rodtech Ferrules are Branded to show the customer that they have purchased the Ultimate Quality of Brass Click Rods.
Each Size Rodtech Rod is machine crimped with the exact amount of pressure to secure the ferrule to the Rod without affecting the integrity of either material.
Crimping is the most efficient way of manufacturing a rod as it leaves no protruding parts that could damage or catch in a liner.
