The garage is (hopefully) the filthiest place in or around your house. Now, H-P Products wants to help keep things tidy, by putting Vroom into that room.
The new Vroom Garage System is a central vacuum solution that’s strictly designed for the garage. The stand-alone product features two components: a wall-mounted power unit and an overhead retractable hose system.
Despite the compact, overhead storage, this system can actually pack two feet of hose into a 3-inch compartment. It’s retractable, which makes it easy to mount on the garage ceiling, out of harm’s (and extra storage’s) way. If you need a little extra reach, the system has an on-board valve, which can accommodate an optional 30-inch hose extension.
Grab that hose and the Vroom automatically kicks on. Return it back, and the system will shut down and retract back into place.
The Vroom Garage system uses tubing and low-voltage wiring for a clean, easy installation. It comes with the power unit, the retractable hose management system, cleaning tools, and mesh bag tool caddy. Optional accessories are also available. Contact H-P for installation info, as well as pricing.
