Team SpaceVac are celebrating this morning after setting a new world record during this years CMS Exhibition in Berlin, Germany.

The team were approached by the organisers of the event (which takes place at the Messe venue in Berlin) a number of months back, with a view to attempting to set a new world record for high-level vacuum cleaning whilst exhibiting at the show.

The opportunity was one we were never going to shy away from and so our partner in Finland Jussi, has spent the previous couple of weeks preparing for the attempt cleaning at ever increasing heights with our new Internal Ultra poles.

SpaceVac Technical Manager Andy Collar explains the difference that working with the internal poles makes: “The new Ultra poles are our highest specification cleaning pole yet. When we created these poles, we were able to take advantage of new developments in the area of carbon engineering to create a pole that is not only lighter and more durable, but can also stack to increased heights by being significantly more rigid. This extra stability means the Ultra poles can clean much higher than our standard internal cleaning tools”.

As it was then –  just after Midday yesterday, Jussi lifted 11 and a half cleaning poles into position from the floor and vacuumed from a total height of 17m and 60cm – a height independently verified as a new world record for high-level vacuum cleaning.


SpaceVac International CEO Tommie Nisula said “We are of course very proud to be the official world record holders in this area – it feels like a record we’ve been training for for over a decade! But while this record attempt here is very exciting and a bit of fun for the whole team, the serious unspoken message, is that every year we work very hard to push the boundaries of what is possible with high-level cleaning”.

New record holder Jussi added “I’m looking forward to working with the team at SpaceVac to see how we can look at breaking this record again in the future. We have a very important exhibition happening in Amsterdam in 2020, I think maybe we could reach 20m 20cm at that time!”
