InterVac Design to Have Patent Issued Jan. 19 for Its VacPort Sweeper System With LED Lighting

PALM CITY, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2016) - InterVac Design (, a leading manufacturer of built-in vacuum cleaner systems for boats, RVs and small homes, is excited to announce that its patent for its VacPort sweeper pan, the only such system that comes with LED lighting, will issue on Jan. 19.

"The VacPort is a great way to make sweeping easier, acting as an automatic dust pan that connects into your central vacuum system," says Susan Schlapkohl, co-founder with her husband, Peter, of InterVac Design.

"All you have to do is grab a broom, sweep dirt toward the illuminated opening and your central vacuum system takes care of the rest."

One of the features that makes VacPort stand out from its competitors is the LED lighting that puts a shine on the area near the pan, helping ensure you won't miss anything.

The VacPort is easily activated with a slight touch of a toe and can be used with any remote vacuum system in the kitchen, utility room, bathroom, workshop, hair salon or any other area that can be swept, Schlapkohl says.

The VacPort connects straight from the back of the unit into the existing central vacuum piping, making installation a snap.

Another of VacPort's features is that it's made of polycarbonate and comes with a lifetime unbreakable guarantee.

"Our company prides itself on innovation and the VacPort with LED lighting is another example of how we are always trying to provide a high-quality product at the best price for our customers," Schlapkohl says.

VacPort is now distributed through BEAM Electrolux, Desco and HP Vacuflo and, like all InterVac Design products, is made in the USA.
