Health, Safety and Welfare Benefits of Vacuum Plumbing

Return to Benefits

"The AcornVac System provided a healthy store environment for employees and guest during the construction process. The system eliminates the saw cutting of the concrete throughout the store floor which would have produced a great deal of dust and residue - no matter how carefully you tarp off the area. With the AcornVac System, we reduced the amount of construction waste, tile, concrete, carpeting, etc. while being environmentally friendly."
