Commercial vacuum system for valet and service bays
Prestigious car brand Porsche were moving to new custom-built premises in the Titanic Quarter Belfast, building a new centre capable of showcasing up to 16 cars as well as 7 state-of-the-art workshop bays for servicing and valeting cars.
The Porsche Centre is the only one of its kind in Northern Ireland, supplying new and approved used cars, a full workshop and Parts Aftersales Department. The centre was designed and built with high specification facilities and equipment to match the exacting standards of the cars.
Porsche were keen to eradicate the problems and inconvenience they experienced from using a series of portable vacuums at their old showrooms, including:
- Risk of damage to cars from portable vacuums hitting them
- Potential trip hazard from trailing cables
- Inconvenience of maintaining several portable vacuums
BEAM were asked to provide a high specification vacuuming solution to meet the needs of the cleaning and valeting requirements within the showroom workshop. We supplied and fitted 2 x Revoblock 1800 Central Vacuum units, each with 7 separate vacuum inlets. The units serviced a total of 7 bays which provides industrial strength vacuuming for bespoke valeting and incorporates 2-stage cyclonic filtration system with a 60-litre dust collection bin.
The solution provides all the convenience of a central vacuum system, including:
- No dragging of portable vacuums
- Minimal maintenance and servicing costs
- Easy waste disposal
- Clean and tidy method of vacuuming customer and showroom cars
- Industrial strength power
- No loss of suction when all vacuum inlets are in use
Mr. Paul McConaghy, the Aftersales Manager commented on how well the Beam Central Vacuum has benefitted their business:
“We choose Beam as the most recognised commercial cleaning solution for longevity and performance. This helps reflect the standards we require working with the most aspirational German sports car brand. Appearance and the ability to keep a strong presence of housekeeping with easy storage was also a critical point in our decision-making process. Beam allows us to have the most tidy and effective method to do this.”
