What is the 8tech vacuum system ?

8tech's system is an innovative system for extracting dust and qualify the air we breathe in all the inhabited environments.
8tech's system consists of some vacuum sockets and pipes inserted in the walls, through which the user sucks up dust funnelling it to a central unit located in a separate room, away from the place being cleaned, so as to ensure total elimination of mites and fine dust improving the environmental air quality.

How does the dust suction system work ?

In a simple, practical and original way: the suction pipe is inserted into the appropriate vacuum sockets embedded in the walls in convenient, well distributed positions, near doors and in positions where furniture is unlikely to be positioned. The collected dust ends up in a central unit located in a separate room and or special compartment, then the filtered air is expelled outside. With this system you eliminate the traditional vacuum cleaner and so avoid lugging around heavy and noisy appliances. The full range of accessories makes the whole system suitable for all uses and all types of surface.

Is the central vacuum system only suitable for residential use ?

Is the central vacuum system suitable for allergy sufferers ?

The substantial difference between a traditional system and an 8tech system, consists in the total guarantee to eliminate the recirculation of dust, in fact, while the common household appliance puts them back into the environment, 8tech's system takes them away completely, transporting them with the pipes under the plaster, to the central unit where the filtered air is expelled outdoors.

Can 8tech’s central vacuum system be installed in an existing home ?

Normally no: this type of system is installed in the construction or renovation phase because it is composed of a 50 mm diameter pipe concealed in the walls or under the floors along with the plumbing and electrical systems.

Is 8tech's system noisy ?

No, it's not noisy, by installing the central unit in a separate room from the rest of the home or at least in a soundproofed compartment, the noise caused by the motor is practically zero so you can clean in complete silence.

Are sockets needed for each room ?

Depending on the shape of the house and the articulation of architectural spaces. It is generally preferable to place sockets near the doors, so a suction socket can serve an environment of a maximum of about 30-35 square meters. The positioning is also determined by the length of the supplied cleaning hose which is seven meters, with possibility of adding a further extension of three meters.

What can you vacuum?

With the centralized system you can vacuum the dust particles up to a maximum size of 30 mm, small debris and all dry material which is normally present in homes. Obviously, liquids can only be aspirated if you use the appropriate pre-separator cleaners.

Can the piping become clogged ?

Proper installation of the pipe makes possible clogging extremely difficult. All connections are made in such a way as to create a perfectly smooth internal surface so as to prevent any blockages of material. Furthermore, the suction pipe have a diameter of 32 mm, the socket connection is 90 °and 40 mm diameter, while the whole piping is 50 mm diameter, with all open curves, making sure that everything that goes into the holes of the brushes reach directly into the central collection container.

What kind of accessories are there available  to the centralized system ?

A wide range of accessories supports the system, suitable for all needs and for all surfaces (enter the item accessories), in addition there are various systems of vacuum sockets such as the baseboard for recessed installation in the skirting of the kitchens and suitable to replace the classic collection shovel, sucking everything that is swept near it (dust, bread crumbs, etc.).
