H-P Products’ Central Vacuum business unit is dedicated to the manufacturing and marketing of residential Built-in Central Vacuum Systems and Accessories. H-P's innovations began in 1955 with the introduction of a central vacuum system that required no bags or filters and exhausted to the outside – VACUFLO® True Cyclonic®. Since then, H-P has continually focused on product innovations designed to make central vacs more affordable, more convenient, and easier to install. Some of these insightful and popular product enhancements include lightweight in-wall plastic tubing, automatic inlet valves, lightweight flexible plastic hoses, turbine powerheads that require no electricity and quick-clean hose management products.
Built-in Central Vacuum Systems
H-P Products manufactures, markets and distributes many popular brands of central vacuum systems including VACUFLO®, Dirt Devil® and Element. All brands are sold through diverse dealer networks and distribution channels that support the homebuilder industry and homeowners. H-P has also designed central vacuums for the RV industry since 1972.
To meet the needs of a growing customer base, H-P has expanded beyond the True Cyclonic line of central vacuums to create lines with various filtration methods. These include Filtered Cyclonic, Inverted Filter Cyclonic and Disposable Bag units.
Hose Management and Quick-Clean Products
H-P is the leader in hose management and quick-clean products for central vacuum systems. Chameleon® provides retractable hose convenience for whole-house cleaning. Vroom Retract Vac® is the first hose management system designed specifically for garages. Vroom® and Spot™ provide quick retractable hose access to clean up life’s daily messes. Together, these products provide the most convenient vacuum experience for the consumer.
In 1980, H-P Products, in partnership with Black & Decker, designed and introduced the first turbine-driven powerhead to the central vac industry – the TurboCat® Plus. Due to its consumer and industry popularity, H-P has continually redesigned and improved this innovative powerhead over the years, and even created a smaller handheld version of it in 1982 called the RugRat®. Today, H-P's turbine products are sold worldwide through dealer channels and to Original Equipment Manufacturers in the central vacuum industry.
