Advantages Of Using Australian Made Commercial Vacuum Cleaners

Commercial vacuum cleaners distinguish themselves from other vacuum cleaners, through their reliability, robustness, and performance. Quality standards vary by country around the globe, and their design is influenced by local cleaning practices, labour, service, and materials. The standards of one country cannot be imposed upon another without making some compromise. When buying an Australian made vacuum cleaner our designs are customized to suit Australian cleaning standards, OH & S regulations, and electrical safety standards. Our customers can be assured of purchasing products based on Australian quality levels, at competitive pricing, and be confident of continued part supply.

The advantage of using Commercial Vacuum Cleaners:

To fulfil the needs of cleaners, we supply the best commercial vacuum cleaner in Australia, minimizing the likelihood of equipment downtime, through superior product reliability.

The cost of labour in Australia is high. Australian made vacuum cleaners are designed to provide high productivity, to reduce labour costs. Using select floor tools e.g., the 30% wider Mega Gulper Floor Tool, productivity can be further enhanced through better coverage.

Our commercial vacuum cleaners go one step further. Built for endurance our Impress vacuum cleaner has a longer life, the Excite vacuum cleaner with bypass motor provides greater application diversity, the D’lite vacuum cleaner provides encapsulated filtration for those working in the health industry and people with allergies, and the bagless Advantage Turbo vacuum provides deep carpet cleaning, and is frugal to run.

Our Australian made commercial vacuum cleaners embrace much more in their design. We consider health issues when it comes to filtration, OH & S for our users, and environmental responsibility when it comes to product life, recycling, and power consumption.

Why Rugged Industries?

As the No. 1 backpack country per capita in the world, Australians are deserving of having bespoke commercial vacuum cleaners, designed, engineered, and manufactured by Australians, for Australians. With over 32 years of experience in the commercial cleaning industry, we have a thorough understanding of the industry’s cleaning standards, its employees, and equipment requirements. We are the oldest established backpack vacuum cleaner manufacturer in Australia even though the company has had many owners and name changes. Manufacturers from foreign countries do not have an understanding of our work habits, so omit important features from their design. Australian cleaners, using foreign-made vacuum cleaners, are often compromised when fulfilling their cleaning duties and face difficulty obtaining spare parts longer term.

Our manufactured products, are genuinely Australian made vacuum cleaners and we are licensed by Australian Made Campaign, authenticating us as a local manufacturer. Our vacuum cleaners should be your first choice.

To further assist our customers, we provide on our website a product selection guide, so you can make informed decisions when you make a purchase. This ensures that our products meet your needs. For the Advantage vacuum cleaner, we provide video instructions on how to use and maintain it, by attaching a QR code sticker that the user can scan. We are proactive and creative when it comes to assisting our customers.

Our commercial vacuum cleaners use cutting-edge technology. Advantage is the first commercial bagless backpack vacuum cleaner in the world. We are the first to market with antimicrobial filters. Since Covid 19, HEPA filtration and antimicrobial odour control additives in the vacuum hose became standard across our product range. Antimicrobial cloth filter bags became standard on the bagged vacuum range. When you buy from us you buy the best commercial vacuum cleaner in Australia.
