Vacuum hoses for upright vacuum cleaners

Definition of the Application

An upright vacuum cleaner consists of a floor tool, wand, handle, hose and canister. The device is typically used indoors by consumers. 

Upright vacuum cleaners are easy to handle since you don’t need to carry the canister. The canister is dragged over the floor by the hose.

Plastiflex and floorcare

Floor care has changed tremendously over the last 100 years. For centuries, a broom was the preferred way to clean floors.

Once the dustpan was developed, a mechanical sweeper was introduced. After that, various types of vacuum cleaners were designed using different mechanisms to generate a vacuum, e.g. a hand pump, a gas driven vacuum cleaner, etc.

Finally, the electrical vacuum cleaner as we know it was developed. The main parts of a vacuum cleaner are the vacuum pump (motor), hose, wand, and floor tool.
