Beam Serenity SC398 Central Vacuum System

Beam vacuums were being manufactured by Beam Manufacturing Company since the 1950s. In 1957, Beam Manufacturing Company was sold and Beam Industries was formed led by R.L. Sampson. With the emergence of Beam Industries, the primary focus was diverted to central vacuum systems. John Coghlan after his career with Beam Industries for 18 years as the President retired in March 2006. During his time, he ensured that Beam Industries reach the pinnacle of success in the central vacuum industry using advanced technology.

In June 2006, Russell S. Minick took over the Beam Industries as the President and since then the company has created higher standards for central vacuum systems in the US. Their primary goal is to capture 75 percent of new U.S. homes by 2016 and to grow consistently in Canada as well as internationally. Beam Industries reached a milestone on January 1, 2007, as they became known as Electrolux Central Vacuum Systems. Now Beam industries are marketing central vacuum systems of Beam, Electrolux, and Eureka.

BEAM Central Vacuum Systems use specifically designed tubing installed in the walls of your home to carry 100% of the contacted dirt, dust and allergens away from your living area to the central power unit commonly located in the garage, utility room or basement.

To activate the system, simply insert the lightweight hose into a central vacuum wall inlet valve. Most homes will typically have one central vacuum inlet valve per floor averaging three per house. The flexible lightweight hose and inlet system allow you to easily move from room to room without having to push a heavy upright vacuum or pull canister vacuum behind commonly bumping into walls or valuable furniture.

BEAM Central Vacuum Systems are much quieter than most portable vacuums as the power unit of a central vacuum is located outside of the living, where the motor of a portable vacuum is in the same room you clean.

1. Tubing installed through interior walls, attic, basement and crawlspaces connects vacuum inlets to the power unit.

2. Each strategically located inlet valve lets you vacuum approximately 700-800 square feet.

3. The power unit is located away from the living area, usually in a basement, garage or ventilated utility room.

4. Innovative accessories like the VacPan can be incorporated into the system for additional cleaning ease.

5. A variety of cleaning attachments such as a crevice tool, a dusting tool and the fabric tool allows you to vacuum any type of surface.

6. Exhausted to the outside or through a HEPA filter system to leave you nothing but clean indoor air.
