MAINTAINING GEAR INTEGRITY AND FIREFIGHTER SAFETY
A careful approach to cleaning gear is critical to proper decontamination and to maintaining the integrity of the protective fabric. Our Washer-Extractors are equipped with a plethora of features to ensure your gear is properly cleaned and back into service fast.
CUSTOM WASH CYCLES
Equipment Marketers, as leading experts in the commercial washer and dryer business, realizes that it’s important to clean protective gear properly to prevent contamination with life-threatening chemicals or particulate matter.That means water temperatures and levels, extract speeds, baths and cycle times must be properly configured on the washers according to the guidelines set up by the NFPA. Using these different programs, you can wash any items that you use on a daily basis. All cycles have a maximum of 100G spinout, warm water, and higher water levels than normal to specifically help clean FIRE FIGHTER GEAR.
Despite advanced technology, the controls couldn’t be easier to use. Once the programs are set, operators simply select a program number and push start. Our Washers are also equipped for automatic chemical injection—eliminating the hassle of manually dispensing detergents, which ensures a consistent clean and eliminates the risk of fabric damage by improper chemical overuse.
BECAUSE SPACE MATTERS
Finding the space to install laundry equipment can be a concern for many fire departments. All of our washers are engineered to maximize space. Our Soft Mount Washers are freestanding and allow for quick installation without bolts and thick reinforced concrete foundations. They slide easily into place—allowing installation in unconventional locations, including truck bays, utility rooms or areas with in-floor heat. Our hard-mount washers also address space concerns. While these machines must be bolted to a concrete foundation, their compact design occupies less space than other hard-mount washers with comparable basket capacities.
WATER CONSERVING FEATURES
Advanced technology on our washers allows for superior wash quality using considerably less water than many competitive washers. Less water used equates to less water heated and additional savings in utilities.
DURABILITY & LONGEVITY
Our washers feature inner and outer drums of durable stainless steel, oversized bearings and a quality sealing system. An oversized door allows for easy loading and unloading, and is equipped with heavy-duty, bolt-style hinges to withstand the rigors of constant use. No wonder our washers are backed by the longest parts warranty in the industry!
