    What’s a trad pole, you ask? “Trad” is short for “traditional.” So it’s any pole used for traditional window cleaning with a scrubber and a squeegee.

    Our trad poles are carbonfiber or a mixture of carbonfiber to make them lighter and more rigid than aluminum extension poles. This means you can use a longer pole and still be able to control it and lift it all day long. Check out the Gardiner poles, they’re our best-selling brand of waterpoles and trad poles! We offer pole connector tips as well in order for you to use Gardiner poles with other brands of hand tools, more on this later. Check out our selection of trad poles and connecting tips!

    TRAD POLES

    Gardiner Red CLX TRAD Pole


    The Gardiner Red CLX TRAD Pole is a telescoping waterpole made of a 50/50 blend of carbonfiber and fiberglass. It features Gardiner’s patented Smart Clamps that are super easy to use and the hold sections in place without spinning. The insulated outer handle section is made of non-conductive fiberglass, suitable for resisting up to 15,000V.

    The Gardiner Red CLX TRAD Pole is the same pole as the Gardiner CLX Waterpole, but without the Pure Water accessories. This is a barebones pole with no brush, gooseneck, hose, or fittings. Instead, it comes with a TRAD pole adapter and an Unger ErgoTec Locking Cone pole tip to attach traditional tools easily.

    The TRAD pole sizes listed are the fully extended physical length. Working height can be estimated by adding another 5 feet.

    • The CLX 4 foot is 2-section and about 0.59 pounds.
    • The CLX 8 foot is 3-section and about 1.12 pounds.
    • The CLX 10 foot is 3-section and about 1.37 pounds.
    • The CLX 18 foot is 4-section and about 2.38 pounds.
    • The CLX 22 foot is 5-section and about 3.13 pounds.
