The Vacpan inlet features a toe operated kick switch, and when activated will suction away dirt, debris and dust. The Vacpan sweep inlet is fast and efficient which makes it great for high traffic areas like the kitchen, mud/utility room and entry areas that get dirty quick with mud, dirt or accidental dry spills like flour or breakfast cereal. The Vacpan Sweep Inlet is available in colors to match your rooms decor including White, Almond, Black or Black with a Stainless Steel cover plate to match other stainless steel appliances in a kitchen.
The Vacpan sweep inlet is simple to install into new homes or existing systems. A handy new flexible hose rough-in kit is available for installations in cabinets and walls which greatly speeds the process in new installs and retro-fits. The Vacpan Quick-Trim Plate is also very helpful in those installations where a Vacpan can only be installed from the front (like an existing cabinet).
A brushed stainless steel face plate can be added to any Vacpan sweep inlet to enhance it's appearance among other kitchen appliances, or a combo Vacpan with stainless faceplate VCPSS01 can be purchased as one item.
If you prefer central vacuum inlets that multitask then consider the Vacpan II series of baseboard and wall mount combination hose & sweep inlets. The Vacpan II inlets operates as a standard hose inlet with low-volt hookup. The combo inlet features a height adjustable channel that reaches to the floor and functions as a sweep inlet by simply sliding the door up. Two sizes are available in the Vacpan II inlet; baseboard mount which has a 4" height from floor to inlet, and the taller wall-mount which has a 16" height from floor to inlet. The Vacpan II inlets install just like standard hose inlets using a standard inlet mounting plate.
The Vacpan sweep inlet has become a standard part of most central vacuum installations, and for a few homeowners the Vacpan sweep inlets are the only type of inlet installed. The Vacpan sweep inlet is also very popular in some commercial applications including hair salons and veterinary offices. The heavy duty Automatic Dust Pan is also available for utility service, commercial cleaning and other high usage environments.
