What Do Vacuum Cleaners and Football Players Have in Common? 

They’re mighty. They’re dedicated. They’re eager to tackle anything in their path.

But does the connection between vacuum cleaners and football players run deeper than this? Actually, at least when it comes to Simplicity Vacuums, the answer is yes. This is all in part to what is referred to as Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastic.

ABS plastic is a lightweight yet durable material that is contained in many different products across many different industries including football helmets. ABS plastic is ideal for helmets because it provides tough protection without slowing players down. That means maximum protection with minimal weight.

Some of our machines, the S20EZM Allergy Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner, and the S65 Cordless Multi-Use Vacuum Cleaner, were designed with an ABS bottom plate. This equates to tough protection without weighing the machines down.

In other words, just as football players rely on their helmets for lightweight, durable protection, you can rely on Simplicity vacuum cleaners to be tough without being heavy.
