Wall Inlets For Broan Central Vacuums
A vacuum wall inlet valve is a door or port that allows a 1.5" standard diameter hose to fit into its receptacle to connect to the piping of a central vacuum system.
Why do I need to use a central vacuum inlet?
To allow a place to insert your central vacuum hose. When the Central Vacuum Hose is inserted into the outlets, it will then activate the central vacuum unit to turn on. This will activate a circuit via a metal band located at the end of a typical central vacuum hose. This, in turn, sends a low-voltage signal telling the main central vacuum to turn on. There are some exceptions if you might have a VacuFlo or Budd, Sears central vacuum as these are unique to these specific brands.
What kind of central vacuum inlets are there?
Most Inlets consist of standard universal, low voltage inlets or electric (direct connect) inlets, aka super valves which require 120 volts as well as low-voltage wiring.
Will these wall inlets work with my Built-In Vacuum system?
Yes. Our Inlets are fully compatible with your Central Vacuum and keep in mind that Central Vacuum Inlets come in different sizes, colors, and dimensions to suit the decor of your home. Most inlet openings measure 1.5" in diameter (excluding some Vacuflo, Budd, and Sears wall inlets) to accommodate 99% of all central vacuum hoses on the market today including Central Vacuum Systems.
