VACUUMS & SWEEPERS FUTURE New technology and design refinements are making

the daily routine of vacuuming easier and more efficient, says Gordon McVean, International Sales and Marketing Director of Truvox International, introducing two new machines to its Valet line-up.


In most buildings, and especially those with large areas of carpet, the daily vacuum is the core component of the routine cleaning regime. But while the task may be ticked off without question, the equipment used for the job still merits consideration.

As in other perhaps more challenging aspects of cleaning, advances are being made in the technology used by vacuums. These can help cleaning teams complete their daily work more efficiently and reliably.

Our new addition to the Truvox International range of Valet Tub Vacs is the VTVe. This machine is built around the need of contractors –

and facilities managers – for more efficient cleaning.

Launched at the Cleaning Show in March, the VTVe delivers great performance with an A energy rating.

Light and highly manoeuvrable, this compact tub vacuum has a small footprint and weighs just 6kg. So transporting the machine between cleaning jobs or parts of a building is easy.

It comes with 32mm-diameter toolset – so is compatible with standard consumables.

A cable wrap at the top of the machine, with the added protection

of a hinged cover that clips in place, prevents tangling and keeps the cable out of harm’s way.

But any eventual replacement of a worn or damaged cord is straightforward, thanks to the VTVe’s easy-change cord system. The process – which is tool-less – is designed to obviate the need for any service engineer call-out charge. All that’s required is a coin to release the retaining screws, before pulling out and then replacing the cord.

The machine is powered by an 800W motor, and has an 11.5 litre capacity for high productivity of some 230m² per hour.
