Looking for reliable, energy efficient laundry equipment, Tawnylodge nursing homes in the East Midlands has installed a total of four Girbau HS-6013 washer-extractors. These have proved to be exceptionally low maintenance and a huge improvement over the ageing equipment they replaced.
Tawnylodge is a successful care organisation comprising two nursing homes in Burton-on-Trent and a third in Nottingham, which each cater for between 30 to 60 residents. With specialist needs ranging from dementia to cancer, cleaning and hygiene has a major part to play in maintaining the high standards of quality care that the company prides itself on. Each home’s in-house laundry processes residents’ clothes and large quantities of sheets and towels on a daily basis, so reliability, flexibility, efficiency and performance are all critical requirements of its laundry equipment.
In over 30 months since Tawnylodge installed its first Girbau machine reliability has never been an issue, leading to a lower total cost of ownership and operation. Tawynlodge’s in-house laundry staff also like the wide range of programming options and ease of use of the energy-efficient HS-6013 washers.
“We’ve been really impressed with the energy-efficient performance, reliability and low water consumption of Girbau’s washers,” said Hiten Shanghavi, director of Tawnylodge Ltd. “Our next move will be to install an additional Girbau washer in our Nottingham home.”
Strong and durable, all washers in the Girbau 6 Series range offer spin speeds of up to 1,000rpm and have been designed to provide excellent washing performance with reduced cycle times. Girbau’s patented GDRIVE system uses microprocessor control to optimise the high speed spin cycle to suit different types of fabric as well as saving energy and water, reducing noise and vibration and prolonging machine life.
