The R-VEX fits all standard universal mounting brackets including those from Vaculine, Hayden and the Plastiflex VEX universal mounting bracket.

Rectangular in shape the R-VEX measures 3-1/8" wide and 5-1/8" tall and features a full cover door that hides both the inlet opening and the mounting screw heads. The VEX series has a clean designer style with a subtle convex shape that matches most switch plates and outlet covers including deco and high style covers.

From the fully braced ABS base plate to the high strength hidden spring door with flexible silicone gasket, the VEX central vacuum inlet is the highest quality valve door on the market. VEX inlets also offer standard features and specifications for interchangeable use with other universal inlets including a spigot connector that fits all standard mounting plates, two pin low voltage wire hook-up, keyed hose alignment design and standard two screw mounting.
