The three AIRBELT E models are powerful, ultra-quiet, lightweight, canister vacuum cleaners that offer innovative design, attractive contours, superb hospital- grade filtration, and an optimized internal airflow pathway that provides powerful suction performance. They feature a 37-foot cleaning radius, a large-capacity filter bag, three on-board attachments, rubber-coated wheels to protect floor surfaces, and a durable telescopic tube with quick-release connections. They also have a full bag or clog indicator, control-switch cord rewinder, and a soft-foam bumper that protects the vacuum, furniture, and walls from scuffs and scratches.
There are two straight-suction models that offer a choice of cleaning heads for use on hard floors and rugs. The E1 Kombi includes a combination nozzle with retractable bristles, and the E2 Turbo offers both an air-driven turbo head and a parquet brush. However, the E3 Premium offers the commercial-quality ET-1 power head that cleans both carpets and hard floors, has excellent pet hair removal, provides manual brush roller shut off, and the extension side of its L-shaped contour makes cleaning under counters easy. A parquet brush for cleaning hard floors with straight suction is also included. The E3’s ergonomically designed handle includes the suction adjustment switch, and it provides user comfort and effortless control of the power head’s 180° steering ability and super-low, 3.5-inch horizontal cleaning profile.
Sebo Onyx Collection
Designed and Manufactured in Germany – Legendary quality, reliability and performance make SEBO vacuums the choice of cleaning professionals throughout the world.
The World’s Best Pet Vacuums – Because of superior power-head technology, SEBO vacuums are the world’s best for pet hair removal! Excellent for Users With Allergies or Asthma – The British Allergy Foundation recommends SEBO filters.
Tightly Sealed Hospital-grade Filtration – Dirty air, which flows through a vacuum, can only be filtered completely if it does not escape into the room through seams or seals in the machine. This is why all SEBO vacuums have tight seals throughout.
Many vacuum companies with high-filtration claims are actually quoting specifications made by the manufacturer of the filter material, as measured in the laboratory, not the filtration effectiveness of the vacuum itself while operating. Whether or not dirty air can escape through leaks in the body of the machine is not considered. The filtration effectiveness of SEBO vacuums is tested while they operate.
Reliable, Commercial-grade Components – All SEBO vacuums are constructed with thick, reinforced ABS plastic, aluminum and metal parts, steel axles and bearings and high-end, quality motors. Therefore, SEBO users own reliable, long-lasting vacuum cleaners. Competing vacuums are made with thin, flimsy, inexpensive plastic materials, none of which are reinforced, and typically have a useful lifespan of one or two years (i.e., disposable vacuums).
Rubber Wheels and Bumpers Protect Homes – Smooth-gliding rubber wheels protect hard floors and provide exceptional maneuverability. In addition, the bumpers that surround the power heads and the soft AIRBELT bumpers that surround SEBO’s canisters protect furniture, walls and vacuum housings from incurring scuffs and scratches during use.
High-tech Brush Roller Technology – SEBO’s brush rollers are uniquely designed to funnel hair and debris into the power heads’ airflow channel, which improves vacuum cleaning performance on all flooring surfaces.
Changing Bags is Easy and Clean – SEBO filter bags can be changed in just a few seconds, and a cap keeps dust sealed inside during removal and disposal. Save Money! SEBO Vacuums Last for Years! – If properly maintained, SEBO vacuums save ordinary residential users hundreds of dollars by providing excellent performance for ten to fifteen years or more, and their deep-cleaning power-brush technology extends the life of carpets. Typical vacuums perform poorly, even when new, and usually do not last beyond two years. So six or seven “disposable vacuums” must be purchased during the average life expectancy of just one SEBO machine.
The air is clean.
Not only do our vacuum cleaners clean the floor but they also enhance the air. Dust seems to be more prevalent nowadays and a lot more people are starting to suffer from allergic reactions. SEBO vacuums possess a 3-step filtration system consisting of a multi layer filter bag (A), a micro-hygiene filter (B) and an exhaust filter (C). They achieve demonstrable excellent filter results.
This is why, with a few exceptions, all SEBO machines carry the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval making a SEBO the perfect choice for people who suffer from allergies.
Only high-quality filter material is used in combination with an excellent sealed vacuum cleaner casing achieve the requirements of SEBO S-class filtration. 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.
This method ensures that the fine dust particles stay in the closed vacuum cleaner system. All SEBO domestic vacuums have S-class filtration.
Every SEBO bag has a convenient hygiene lid to seal the bag after it is full - no dust will escape.
For increased asthma and allergy protection your SEBO will not operate unless the filter and bag are in place.
Electret filter material.
Other than usual filtration systems, the SEBO filtration takes place by using the principle of electrostatics.
Several charged micro fibres block the opposite charged particles. This allows a relative open structure that favours the air stream and at the same time lowers the chance of plugging. The result is a much smoother and long-lasting filtration.
A vacuum cleaner is designed to keep your home clean. It does this by removing the unpleasant and unsightly “debris” that builds up over time. A good vacuum cleaner will remove more of this debris than others and a very good one will ensure that this debris will not get back into the home either by being blown out through the filters or released when it is emptied. The SEBO filter bag system not only enhances filtration, but it also allows you to hygienically dispose of collected debris.
Think of your kitchen bin: undoubtedly you use a bin liner. This is for the very good reason that without the convenience of a bin bag, emptying it would be very messy. You would have to frequently clean it - which would be an unpleasant and time consuming task.
Dust becomes airborne very easily and will almost certainly contain hazardous material such as dust mite faeces and bacteria. With a SEBO sealable high filtration bag, dust isn’t a problem: It is safely retained within the filter bag and can cleanly and easily be disposed of in the bin, inside or outside. The filter bag housing of a SEBO remains free of dust and does not require cleaning. For allergy sufferers the filter bag protects you from the risk of exposure to dust.
Contrast this with a bagless vacuum cleaner: The dust container and its internals can rapidly build up with dust and require cleaning. The filters can require monthly cleaning. Because of the high probability of dust becoming airborne many people empty them outside, or empty them into a bag first. With SEBO you have a purpose designed bag which the vacuum cleaner fills for you.
Bagged vs. Bagless . . . Bags are Better! - Top-fill, three and four-layer Ultra
Bags are an integral part of SEBO’s filtration system because they hold virtually
all the dirt captured by the vacuum, which improves the effectiveness and useful
life of the microfilters. They also ensure continuously strong suction because dirt
enters from the top, deposits at the bottom, accumulates upward, and air exits
through the sides, which allows unimpeded airflow as they fill to capacity. And
they can be tightly sealed with a hygiene cap when full, so no dust can escape
into the air during bag removal and disposal.
In contrast, without bags to hold nearly all the captured dirt, the microfilters on bagless vacuums
quickly clog from excessive dirt build-up and must be replaced often, or a loss of suction and clean-
ing effectiveness will occur. In addition, dust and other allergens become airborne when emptying
bagless dirt containers. Lastly, bagless vacuum microfilters are expensive, usually costing more
than a multi-year supply of SEBO filter bags.
Changing Bags is Easy and Clean – SEBO filter bags can be changed in just a
few seconds, and a hygiene cap keeps dust sealed inside during removal and disposal.
In 1978, two engineers, with a vision of a cleaning system unlike anything ever produced, founded SEBO in Velbert, Germany.
