Girbau UK is offering a free healthcare laundry efficiency review to visitors to its stand (D33) at Health+Care taking place at ExCeL, London on 28-29 June. The company is also sponsoring the Care Home Live arena and will be creating a real-life laundry featuring washers, dryers and ironers recommended for care homes looking to operate an on premise laundry.
The laundry review is designed to ensure care home laundries are being run as efficiently and effectively as possible. This free service examines a comprehensive range of operational and hygiene factors. A specialist laundry consultant undertakes the audit to determine whether laundry running costs are too high, if the laundry could be run more efficiently and to check that the laundry is fully CQC compliant for infection control.
Products featuring in the Girbau laundry will include the ED Ecodryer range of energy efficient dryers, believed to be the most energy efficient commercial dryers on the market, and the Girbau HS 6 Series range of washers, which are Water Technology List approved. Care home businesses purchasing new Girbau HS 6 Series washers can benefit from 100% tax relief under the Government’s Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme.
ED Series dryers feature TRANSFLOW technology, which combines radial and axial airflow for maximum efficiency, reduced cycle times and lower energy costs. Cabinet insulation and a double-glazed door further optimise energy efficiency. The highly reliable and accurate built-in humidity control system automatically senses when clothes are dry and activates the cool down process maximising energy efficiency and quality care of all fabrics.
Girbau’s Smart Load technology on its latest HS Series washer extractors offers care and nursing home laundries even greater savings in energy, water and detergent use. Smart Load automatically adjusts water consumption and chemical dosing in accordance with load weight, fabric and chosen wash program to save energy, water and detergent without users needing to do anything.
Girbau is the only company in the UK to manufacture, install, service and maintain a full range of commercial laundry equipment as well as providing servicing for other makes of machine. The company has more than 55 years’ experience in helping care homes to design, set up and operate laundries.
