|Home PlastiFlex VacPan CVS Sweep Inlet Stainless Steel VCPSS01|
The Vacpan central vacuum sweep inlet revolutionized the central cleaning industry when it was developed and quickly became the most popular installation accessories for homeowners. Use your favorite broom to sweep debris from high traffic areas like the kitchen or mudroom then kick the Vacpan switch and dirt & dust will be carried away to the vacuum. Fast to operate, simple to connect and reliable to own. The Vacpan was originally called "the automatic dust pan" because it easily did away with the dirty and time consuming task of using a dust pan to collect the debris for disposal into the garbage can. A sweep inlet is often mounted in the base of cabinet or can be mounted into a regular stud wall. Connected with tubing to the main central vacuum the Vacpan activates the suction and opens an airflow valve by user operated toe switch. The Vacpan requires just a couple seconds to suction away debris and dust that is swept into the inlet.
Push the switch closed again and the vacuum system is turned off and the inlet valve is sealed. The Vacpan can be installed in new systems or added to existing central vacuum systems. Vacdepot also offers a self-contained Vacpan inlet system for homes without a central vacuum system. The Vacpan is available in four colors: VCPA01 Almond, VCPB01 Black, VCPW01 White & VCPSS01 Stainless Steel Finish. An optional flexible hose installation kit is also available.
The Vacpan became available for DIY'ers and homeowners to install and retrofit into existing systems in the very early 90's. It is now the most popular install accessories in all residential cleaning systems worldwide. The sweep inlet is nearing two decades of installations and is thought to be part of 9 in 10 of new domestic central vacuum installations. Thanks to it's prolificy the Vacpan has become refined and also lower in cost than the first models. Vacpan installation has also been streamlined and the availability of the new Vacpan rough-in has allowed a sweep inlet to be added in many homes where the central vacuum had already been installed.
Cleaner & Healthier
Easy To Install
Standard installation of the Vacpan with Stainless Steel finish plate requires a minimum 2.75" height in the toe-kick area for cabinet installations (2.25" for Vacpans without the Stainless Steel finish plate). A 6.75" long and 1.75" tall slot is notched in the cabinet base against the floor. For in-wall installations a small section of bottom plate must be removed to allow installation directly against the floor as well as removal of the baseboard. Along with the suction connection the low-voltage control wire from the power unit is attached to two screws on top of the Vacpan. Sweep inlets are dry-fit using a friction connection and do not use glue. The Vacpan Install Guide is available for download. Note: VCPSS01 with Stainless Steel Finish Plate can not be used with the VCPQTP Vacpan Quick-Trim Plate. VCPSS01 must be installed into the cabinet or wall before the flex rough-in or PVC plumbing is connected.
The Vacpan sweep inlet increases your cleaning productivity by providing more access to your central cleaning system. Keep high traffic floors like your kitchen, mudroom or entry clean without the need to get your hose and cleaning tools. The Vacpan will conveniently carry away swept dirt and debris along with dust and submicron sized particles for a cleaner home without the back bending work require by regular dustpans. Install a Vacpan sweep inlet in every application for a happier homeowner and a healthier home.
