Wall Inlets
face plates
  • Standard wall valve. Wall inlet accommodates standard 1-1/4" hose; unit is turned on when cap is lifted and hose is inserted. Stock item, available in white and ivory colors.
  • Custom wall valve. Same as standard wall valve, except made of metal; available colors: shiny brass, antique bronze or chrome. Special order.
  • Low-voltage wall valve.   Insertion of hose turns unit on; once hose inserted, unit can be turned on and off via switch on attachment end of hose.    Available in white or ivory, this wall valve requires a low-voltage hose to control power unit via switch.
  • Direct-connect inlet.   Two component parts are installed for each inlet in a two-step process. First, a flange is installed, which is then wired for standard 110 electricity by a qualified electrician. Then the vacuum installer adds a direct-connect wall valve that fits into the flange and provides a plug inlet for an electric hose "pigtail". This inlet style enables use of electric hoses and power nozzles without the need for a separate electrical outlet nearby.
Vac pan in use
  • Vac Pan.  This inlet fits under a cabinet at the floorboard, and must be installed at the same time as the system piping is done. Foot-activated, you simply sweep debris up to the inlet and it is picked up by the vacuum suction. This has been our most popular installation feature, with many of our customers installing a vac pan in the kitchen as well as the garage workshop area. Suitable for new construction or remodel installations.
  • Vac Pan II.  This variation on the original Vac Pan can be used to retrofit existing built-in vacuum system installations. It replaces an existing inlet with a dual function unit that accepts a hose or that can be slid up to allow debris to be swept into the system inlet.
