The Redwood® Floor Machine Pad


ETC's Redwood® floor pad is designed to recondition the surface of a wood floor (gymnasiums, parquet areas, etc...). With its fine abrasive action, it will smooth the surface of raised wood fibers that are created when using water-based sealers and finishes. It will deburr, smooth and clean wood floor surfaces between coats to give you adhesion and the resulting level surface needed for the next coat. Redwood® is a 3/8-inch pad and should be used with our 1-inch ETC Red pad to drive it.




The ACS Turbostrip Segmented Rotary Strip Pad features polygonal segments with overlapped angular edges that bite into floor wax aggressively.

Independent lab tests show that it achieves up to 5 times wax removal than standard black strip pads depending upon the number of coats need to be removed.

This pad dramatically reduces excess floor wax on strip pads. The pad life increases while the floor stripping work is completed faster. 



Ruff® Brush Pads


  • Thousands of brushes laminated to a floor pad
  • Aggressive but not abrasive
  • Seged to secure the edges
  • The porous materials allow liquids to pass through to the surfaces for use with autoscrubbers
  • Ruff® is lightweight, flexible, easily switched between regular floor pads and is much less expensive than a wooden brush blocK
  • Circular and rectangular pads in all standard sizes



Superscreen Discs


Superscreen discs are used primarily on hardwood floors. The discs sand down the old finish so that new finish can be applied. This is known as the "scour method" of refinishing a floor and is most often used on gym floors. Superscreen discs come in grits ranging from very coarse to super fine.

All our discs are manufactured with waterproof resins and silicon carbide abrasive, assuring you of the finest quality discs you can buy. All grits available in rectangular sizes for orbital machines.

Carpet Bonnets

Whether you call it bonnet cleaning, absorbent pad cleaning, carbonated shampooing cleaning or spin pad, this method of adapting hard floor spray buffing to carpets is a viable part of any carpet maintenance program when done correctly.

Cleaning with ETC's Tiger® carpet bonnet produces several key benefits, including efficient cleaning and rapid drying. THis method also evens out the appearance of a carpet between low-traffic and high-traffic areas and pulls out additional soil left behind after extraction.

When done correctly, bonnet cleaning can improve the appearance of a carpet, even after extraction, because the carpet bonnets can pick up soils left behind during the initial cleaning process. As carpets dry, soil, soil rises up to the surface and can be picked up by carpet bonnets.

ETC's Tiger® carpet bonnet cleaning also gives custodial staff greater control over how they clean. Solution may be applied in two different ways: either by immersing the bonnet in water, wringing it out and using it on a low-speed rotary floor machine before pre-spraying the carpet with cleaning solution and running the machine over it; or by applying the cleaning solution directly to the carpet bonnet before attaching it to the machine. 

Not all carpet bonnet are created equal, and ETC is proud to offer the most durable and reliable carpet bonnet in the industry today. ETC's Tiger® carpet bonnet features a looped-end synthetic yarn with non-abrasive pile lifting and cleaning stripes. The double-sided, washable carpet bonnet delivers long wear and tear and minimal linting.
