Central Vacuum Pipe Manufacturing

Central Vacuum Pipe - Vip Rubber and PlasticQuality American Supplier of Central Vacuum Pipe

Central vacuum pipe is used with all residential central vacuum systems, and is an important part of creating a long-lasting product that works well for your customers. Central vac pipe differs from plumbing grade tubing and typically is manufactured with a 2” outside diameter (OD). Central vacuum pipe is produced with a completely smooth interior which allows dirt and other small particles to flow freely, and prohibits clogging in the pipe.

The ASTM F2158 standard is the industrial guideline for central vacuum pipe and is a best choice. Local inspectors often look for the ASTM designation as assurance the central vac system is of higher quality.


Vip Rubber and Plastic can manufacture custom central vacuum pipe and tube to meet the ASTM specifications. We can also create custom lengths, colors, and print alignment marks, numbers, or personalized text on any of our pipes.

Since 1961, we have been a family owned and operated manufacturer, working with leading companies in all industries.

As a custom manufacturer, we do set up each job and run parts individually. Therefore, we are a best fit for customers who need larger quantities of central vacuum pipe, typically 5000’ or more.
