Sunbelt Rentals and Lucid Drone Technologies Partner to Offer New Exterior Cleaning Option for Rent

The Lucid C1 spraying drone provides a safe, fast and smart means for labor-intensive jobs

FORT MILL, S.C. (October 10, 2022) – Sunbelt Rentals, North America’s premier equipment rental company, and Lucid Drone Technologies, North America’s leader in purpose-built spray drones, have partnered to bring Lucid C1 spraying drones to rental customers nationwide. The drone technology is designed for cleaning the durable surfaces and windows of building exteriors, while being operated safely from the ground.

“Partnerships like the one with Lucid Drone Technologies are what has enabled us to bring innovative solutions to our customers,” said Adam Camhi, vice president of flooring solutions, Sunbelt Rentals. “With the Lucid C1 spraying drone, our customers will have safer operations, reduce their environmental impact and increase overall operator efficiency, while still completing tough exterior cleaning jobs.”

Andrew Ashur, CEO/founder of Lucid Drone Technologies added, “The Lucid C1 can help facility managers and owners maximize their maintenance staff’s time, which saves time and money.”

The Lucid C1 spraying drones require a Part 107 license from the FAA, along with aviation insurance, both of which Sunbelt Rentals can help coordinate. The drones use low pressure — less than 300 pounds per square inch (PSI) — and operate by tethering to an on-ground, soft wash pump system on a trailer or in a truck bed. Rental customers can choose their cleaning solution or refer to an approved solution program provided by Sunbelt Rentals and Lucid Drone Technologies.

The drones operate using GPS and feature urban flight capabilities, allowing operators to use them safely in urban environments where the signal may be weak. They also feature intelligent batteries that have an LED indicator that displays the current charge state, along with an avoid distance quick-select switch. This switch allows operators to choose options to keep the drone at a set distance from the building for safe use.

The Lucid C1 spraying drones are backed by Sunbelt Rentals support and service to maintain the equipment for optimal use.
