Free Range From Batteries

30 June 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

Truvox International launched a number of new products at the Facilities Show including battery operated vacuums that can increase user comfort or help in daytime cleaning operations.

Batteries power two new Valet vacuums – an Upright and a BackPack model, which also has a conventionally powered electric twin. Meanwhile, Truvox has also widened its Orbis rotary line-up with the new Orbis Eco range. All four machines were showcased at the Facilities Show and will be available later in 2016 and early 2017.

The Valet Comfort Pro and its main electric version are light to carry, and have a Deuter Aircomfort harness, which adjusts for a snug fit. Cleaning tools are stored on a belt. The battery has a 55-minute run-time.

The new Valet Battery Upright will run for over 60 minutes and is said to be quiet enough to be a bonus for those employing daytime cleaning regimes.
