Curved / bow windows


Recommended Posts

Just starting out by myself. Always done PFS but starting to do traditional. I'm slow but I enjoy it. I've potentially picked up a cafe bar with two huge curved windows and I can't find anything on YouTube on how to read clean them 🤔. Any tips are welcome. Cheers lads

Curved moulded glass is awkward but traditional methods with a larger than life 24" or greater squeegee and mop work well when used in straight horizontal pulls.

Obviously you can't go diagonally or vertically over a curve

Do you mean half moon shaped panes of glass, or actually curved?

If you mean half moon windows, or porthole windows, I just fan them. If it was a shop and I was using a pole, I would normally use a morman fliq, but it can be done with a standard squeegee, under zero would be better.

I have only cleaned curved windows on one job, which was an old listed building with a turret, and the glass was shaped to the curve or the turret. With these I straight pulled sideways.

Cheers lads pretty much what I thought. I've ordered a nice wide unger blade and handle that pivots. Have a few unger bits and am happy with them so far. Cheers for the replies. Really appreciate it 😅

The Unger swivel handle is pretty good. I had to modify mine so it wasn't so stiff
