Floor care hose solutions

Definition of the market

Floor care has changed tremendously over the last 100 years. For centuries, a broom was the only 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), vacuum hose, wand, and floor tool.

Plastiflex and floor care

Plastic vacuum hoses are an integral part of modern-day vacuum cleaners.

For more than 60 years, we have designed, developed and manufactured vacuum hoses for different type of vacuum cleaners. To this day, our goal is to fulfill and exceed our customers’ expectations.

We focus on designing and developing custom and innovative plastic vacuum hose system solutions including flexible plastic hoses, cuffs to connect the hose to the vacuum cleaner, and handles.

Canister vacuum cleaner

Canister vacuum cleaner hoses connect the dust collector unit and floor tool. To enable vacuuming under difficult-to-reach surfaces, different floor tools can be attached.
