SEBO have been instrumental in the development of the modern vacuum cleaner. They have introduced new technology to make machines which are more user friendly, more reliable, and give better performance. SEBO also work hard to manufacture in a way that is better for the environment.
Hoses on upright vacuum cleaners are now commonplace, but it was SEBO who originated the concept. SEBO's first upright model (the SEBO 350), on sale in 1978, featured the first built-on hose and the first use of electrostatic filters. It also was the first upright to incorporate a clutch protected, timing belt driven, brush. The SEBO 350 also had the ability to lay completely flat and was light and easy to use. This machine was to become the worlds' biggest selling commercial upright vacuum cleaner, a position SEBO machines still enjoy.
In 1982, SEBO introduced duo-P carpet cleaning powder. In 1986 SEBO was the first company to make upright vacuum cleaners with electronic brush control and safety shut off. The built-on hose with the integrated wand was introduced in 1991.
Today you can see the development of these technologies in the SEBO automatic X range. S-Class electrostatic microfiltration, a telescopic hose system, computer-controlled height adjustment with auto safety shut-down, cassette-style brush roller removal, permanent timing belts, and three-layer bags for totally hygienic dust disposal.
SEBO are at the forefront of production technology and we test every single vacuum cleaner to ensure that every customer gets the best quality machine.
Electrostatic filtration uses statically charged micro-fibres that attract dust particles from the air stream, these then bond onto the fibres. This enables the filter material to have a relatively open texture which allows very good airflow for better suction performance, yet it also gives highly effective filtration.
All SEBO domestic vacuum cleaners either come with S-CLASS filtration or can be easily upgraded to S-CLASS. To meet the S-CLASS standard the filtration system has to remove a minimum of 99.97% of particles of 0.3 microns. The SEBO S-CLASS system will remove 100% of particles of 1 micron and above. Dust mite faeces are approx. 10 microns.
