Excellence inside: intelligent features and special programs for fire brigades

The Electrolux Professional Laundry Solution impregnates protective garments as part of the overall cleaning process

Restores full protection and comfort to fire garments after every wash

Saves water, energy and time – impregnation fluids and water can be used several times

Fire fighter garments are bulky. Therefore machines with a large drum volume and a big door opening are recommended.

High spin front load washers or barrier washers machines with a programmable control and special wash programs are most suitable for two reasons:

The uniforms might have a membrane layer which can create a “water pocket” giving extreme unbalance during extraction. An high spin washer is not that sensitive to heavy unbalance.

Low extraction will not damage the very expensive illumination stripes in the garment.

Garments need to be impregnated

After washing, the garments need to be impregnated to protect fire fighters. This process divides in two main steps: the chemical impregnant is properly dosed by the washing machine (the washer extractor) and then fixed in a specific dryer, expressly designed for Fire Brigades.
