Because The Best Way to Clean Gear Is A Highly Programmable, Soft-mount Commercial Washer Extractor


Industry experts agree highly programmable commercial laundry equipment is key to washing fire department gear correctly in order to avoid damage to the gear itself. Fire departments should use washers offering programmable water temperatures and levels, extract speeds, multiple bath options, and automatic chemical (detergent) injection. They should also be able to program multiple wash actions, cylinder rotation options, and wash time. Continental Girbau's laundry equipment effectively removes contamination from protective apparel—keeping firefighters safe! The front-load washers can automatically inject the right type and quantities of detergents at the appropriate water temperature and level—preventing inconsistent and damaging results.

Continental internationally known for their quality washer extractors.   The manufacture both the traditional HARD MOUNT washer that is anchored to the floor and the more advanced SOFT MOUNT washer that does not require anchoring.
