A fully automatic utility inlet for all central vacuum systems. For use in garages, workshop, basement and other areas where the tubing is exposed. The Vacuflo Automatic utility Inlet activates your central vacuum power unit when the valve door is opened and turns it off when the door is closed. Designed to fit standard 2" CVS vacuum tube and work with standard 1.5" CVS vacuum hoses including low-volt, no-volt, dual-volt and utility, car or garage cleaning kits. The Automatic utility Valve is an excellent example of quality engineering.
Mounted to a wall or strapped to a pole, the utility valve includes all you need to connect into your vacuum tube system. The automatic utility valve does not require a mounting bracket and is designed to be surface mounted. A unique hidden mount system uses only one screw (provided) and locks securely onto any flat wall. Slots on either side and a notched housing also allows the utility valve to be mounted securely onto a 2.5" or larger pole with a gear clamp like those sold in hardware stores (not included). A 5 foot section of 16/2 low-volt wire comes pre-installed on the valve for easy connection to your existing system.
The downward opening door has a lifetime silicone gasket and internal steel closure spring. When inserted into the valve the hose will hang from the valve at a 45° angle instead of a standard in-wall valves 90° angle for less stress on the hose, valve and mounting system. Valve design compresses debris before it is introduced to the tubing system as an anti-jam safety feature that will not let large objects past the valve.
Sold 1 valve each, includes mounting instructions, mounting screw and wallboard anchor. Tube and cleaning tools/hose not included.
