American Brush Company


Metal Grip Strip Brushes

Strip brushes are used for a variety of industrial applications. Grading, smoothing, flow control and dust barriers are a few examples of uses for strip brushes.

Our strip brushes are made with either steel or stainless steel backing, and can be filled with natural, synthetic and steel filaments that range from .003" up to .090". Currently, we are able to make our brushes with .5", .875", and 1" channel strip wide before brush formation to accommodate varying sizes of strips and filaments. We can manufacture overall trim lengths from .375" up to 24".

Also available is our extruded aluminum holder that fits our .875" (#7) channel, and comes in three varieties for correct positioning. Choose from inline ("h" style), perpendicular/right angle ("F" style), or double holder.

Metal Grip Strip Brushes We can run our brush trim to accomodate vehicles that need a guard against road debris, up to 30" in overall trim! They can be mounted using our aluminum extruded holder, and are custom made to your desired length and filament. Please call us or fill out our quote request form below for further information.
