BEAM Alliance System Wins Coveted Seal of Approval from Parent Organization

Parent Tested Parent Approved

Parent Tested, Parent Approved has awarded its coveted Winner’s Seal of Approval to the new BEAM Alliance Central Vacuum System by Electrolux. PTPA is North America’s largest volunteer parent testing community, representing 65,000 parents and its seal has been rated “most trusted” by more than 22,000 parents across North America.

The BEAM Alliance System was among many entries from across North America competing to earn the PTPA Seal. Independent parent volunteers in the U.S. and Canada evaluated the system in their own homes and rated the product on a variety of criteria including design, performance, user experience, value and more. The BEAM Alliance System earned 199 of a possible 200 points by the testing team.

“We are proud to play a role in certifying innovative products that families can trust,” says Sharon Vinderine, CEO and founder of PTPA Media Inc. “When consumers search for our Seal of Approval on product packaging and web sites, they are essentially searching for validation from their peers. Their peers will have objectively tested and approved these products based on their performance in a real life environment. That type of resource for families is priceless.”

“The BEAM Alliance System gives families the freedom to enjoy those messy moments with complete confidence they can clean the home quickly, thoroughly and more easily than ever before,” says Lars Hybel, general manager of Electrolux Central Vacuum Systems.

The BEAM Alliance System brings sophisticated communication, filtration and energy- saving technology that gives the user greater control, improved indoor air quality, superior cleaning power, quiet operation and unmatched cleaning convenience.

“Being honored with the Seal of Approval from PTPA is a huge achievement. We set a high bar in designing this new system and the BEAM Alliance System passed this test with flying colors,” Hybel adds.
