Beam: Easily installed in all types of house construction
Whether your home is block, timberframe etc, new or existing, our professional team of Beam engineers will be happy to install the central vacuum system for you.
Installation Schedule for a New House:
When stud walls are in place and before your plaster board goes on.
- If no stud walls being constructed, before plastering and before the ceilings go up.
- When your plastering is nearing completion and before the floors are screeded;
- If installing underfloor heating, before polystyrene / insulation is laid;
- When plumbing & heating pipes are being laid in floors;
- If power unit is being located in a detached garage, a 4" trench duct to carry our vacuum pipe must be prepared at this stage.
A 13 amp electrical socket, positioned at a high level, is required beside the location of the power unit.
It is important that your Beam Central Vacuum System is completed and air tested before floor tiling and decorating to ensure that no wires or ducting have been accidentally damaged under the floor during house completion.
About 95% of existing homes — regardless of age — can be retrofitted with a BEAM Central Vacuum System. The key to success is planning a pipe system so that the vacuum duct can be concealed with the least amount of disruption, with the correct number of vacuum inlets, while still giving you the vacuum cleaning flexibility only a central vacuum system offers.
Our experienced team of engineers can install your Beam system with minimum mess or fuss!
