The VacPan is a new central vacuum outlet that is easily installed using standard fittings and pipe, in both new and existing systems. Vac Pan is a must in the kitchen kick plate! Simply sweep dirt over to the VacPan inlet and it's gone - as easy as sweeping dirt under the rug! And the On/Off kick switch eliminates any bending over. Homeowners will love it! VacPan solves your quick clean up dilemmas while providing you a fantastic new and revolutionary tool!

Installation Tips

  • Plan the location of your ORIGINAL VACPAN to be conveniently located for sweeping clean-ups. Also consider ease of access of vacuum tube piping connections during installation.
  • The leading edge of the ORIGINAL VACPAN must sit flush with the finished floor.
  • For maximum clearance, use Short 9O degree Elbow for connection to VACPAN.
  • Do not glue the connection between ORIGINAL VACPAN and elbow, to allow for future removal.
  • Prior to final installation, check for an airtight seal between ORIGINAL VACPAN and elbow. Teflon tape may be used if required.
  • Allow for 1/2" vertical play in vacuum tube piping at ORIGINAL VACPAN location, so that final piping connections can be made.

Under Cabinet Installation

  • ORIGINAL VACPAN requires a minimum 2-1/4" toe kick height.
  • Once the ORIGINAL VACPAN location is determined, cut a 6-3/4" long x 1-3/4" high slot in the cabinet toe kick to accept the ORIGINAL VACPAN.
  • Run vacuum tube piping and low voltage wire from the main piping line to the ORIGINAL VACPAN location.
  • Access for final piping connections must be made.

Access From Below
If access is available from below, cut an access hole through the subfloor underneath the cabinet, positioned so that final piping connections can be made by reaching through the access hole.
Access Through Cabinet Floor
Access can be made through the finished cabinet floor. Cut a 2-3/4" x 3-1/2" access hole, positioned so that final piping connections can be made by reaching through the access hole. VACPAN Trim Plate can be used to cover the hole after installation.
Through Cabinet Toe Kick
Access can be made through the cabinet toe kick by cutting up to a 10-1/2" x 4" slot and using the VACPAN Trim Plate. If required, score back of VACPAN Trim Plate with a knife and snap along grooves for height adjustment.

  • Attach low voltage wires to ORIGINAL VACPAN terminal connections marked "low voltage only".
  • Slide ORIGINAL VACPAN into mounting slot and secure to toe kick using two #6 screws provided.
  • Reach through access hole and make final piping connections.
