Selecting the right ducted vacuum hose to use with your ducted vacuum system will make vacuuming much easier - maybe even enjoyable!

A ducted vacuum switch hose allows you to start and stop the vacuum from the handle. There's no need to remove the hose if you want to momentarily stop vacuuming (to move some furniture or answer the phone, for example); simply flick the switch to stop the motor, and flick it again to resume vacuuming when you are ready. A switch hose will work with all but the very oldest ducted vacuum systems. Many newly installed systems will be supplied with a switch hose, and they are a very popular upgrade accessory, being a universal style suitable for all makes and models.
If your current vacuum hose has a metal ring around the end (as shown above in the standard switch hose) and your wall or floor plates have two contact pins as in the picture opposite (right) - you can upgrade from a standard hose to a switch hose with no changes to your existing system. In order for a switch hose to work correctly, it must be inserted into the wall/floor plate correctly.
This is easily done by ensuring the plastic tab on the hose cuff slots into the locating tabs on the wall/floor plate as shown opposite. If the hose is not plugged in correctly, the vacuum motor will run as it would with a standard hose. No damage will occur to the hose or motor - but the switch will not work until the hose is plugged in correctly.
Ducted Vacuum Switch Hoses are available in 9mtr, 10.5mtr and 12mtr lengths. Due to the manufacturing processes involved with switch hoses, it is no possible to supply a custom length option.
In terms of functionality, the Hi-Vis hose is exactly the same as a standard ducted vacuum hose. The motor starts as soon as you plug in the hose, and stops when you remove it. The handle and cuff can be replaced as needed, which is an important benefit, as this can be more often than usual in a commercial application.
Available off the shelf in various lengths, it is possible to join two Hi-Vis hoses together with a 32mm hose joiner to make a longer hose for great accessibility around larger commercial areas.ducted vacuum extension hose comes in handy. The special 'slip cuff' fitting on one end of the extension hose fits onto the wall end of your regular vacuum hose, and the other end of the extension hose plugs into the wall/floor plate as normal.
A 4 metre extension hose makes your standard 9 metre hose 13 metres long, for example - just for the time that you need a longer hose. Simply disconnect the extension hose, and you are back to your normal 9 metre length. Perfect for houses which have an extension or outdoor living room which is just out of reach of your ducted vacuum.
