-- Vax Air Cordless is the Culmination of Two Years of Work to Create More Power Using Less Energy
BIRMINGHAM, England, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In light of the new EU energy rules, vacuum manufacturers have been challenged to use less power without compromising performance.
"With less energy you must be smarter in how you use it, so we have found the new EU rules have been a catalyst for category-breaking innovation. For Vax, the ultimate expression of energy innovation is Air Cordless, our first full-size cordless upright," says Paul Bagwell, VP of Global Product Development for Vax*, Britain's leading floor care brand.
Vax's 100+ UK based Engineers have spent the last 2 years making their products work better with less energy. This new thinking has driven numerous innovations in motors, brush bars and filters enabling them to deliver their first full-size cordless vacuum.
Powerful cleaning performance without a cord
Vax has created a full-size machine that's powerful enough to clean your whole home for 50 minutes without having to find a plug socket.
The power to deliver strong continuous suction and a powerful brush bar for a sustained period of time is significant. The Air Cordless is the culmination of two years of work to create more power using less energy. The combination of efficient and powerful motors, state of the art air path design, strong agitation and an optimized cyclonic separation system – all married with TTI expertise in battery technology – provide a category-breaking formula for success.
Innovating for the consumer
"The most searched for term on Google in floor care is cordless," says Simon Lawson, President of TTI Floor Care. "Vax consumers say that they want cordless technology across all floor care but especially in the products they use frequently. They want cleaning to fit in with their busy life schedule not have their life scheduled around their cleaning. Air Cordless meets this challenge"
New EU rules are not without controversy and pose some significant questions from consumers and challenges for the floor care industry. However, Vax believes improving cleaning performance whilst reducing energy can be a good thing for both the environment and for consumers –as embodied by the new Air Cordless.
