Laundry equipment for independent schools

Boarding schools

We understand that the laundry has to work hard in boarding schools, with a wide range of requirements from bedding, towels, dining room and kitchen items through to pupils’ and staffs’ personal clothing and games kit.

At WASHCO we have a wide range of equipment to choose from including commercial washing machines, dryers and ironers.

Our team are on hand to help you find the right equipment for your needs, choosing from well-known brands such as Miele, Primus and Speed Queen. Or, if you want even more visibility of your laundry process, WASHCONNECT our range of smart washing machines and dryers prepares your laundry for the future.

For that complete end-to-service, we can also support with our range of laundry detergents and chemicals, WASHCHEMICALS, working in perfect harmony with your machines to deliver clean, infection-free laundry.




Non-residential & special schools

Whether day or boarding, special schools will share the requirements of mainstream schools but may have additional requirements for compliance.

Our range of washing machines has WRAS 5 accreditation and flexible programming allowing us to work with you to develop bespoke cycles which meet your needs.

Equipment range for schools

If you’re thinking about reviewing your laundry it can be daunting.

We recommend that your first step is to review the capacity of your laundry. Is it still at the right level for your school and are the machines the right size for your location? It might be that the capacity is correct, but it’s split between too few machines, leading to operational inefficiencies.

How much space do you have?

Is this an opportunity to change the layout and iron out some of the issues caused by the current floor plan? Is it for a boarding house or incidental loads? If yes, you might want to consider a small chassis option such as Miele Little Giants.

Would it help to have better visibility of the machines?

If the answer’s yes, you might want to consider machines which have IoT connectivity, such as WASHCONNECT, providing you with all the visibility you could need. This includes infection control tracking for both thermal disinfection and ozone.

Are you managing flatwork in-house?

The latest rotary ironers in our range are 20% smaller than previous models with no compromise on productivity. This gives you the opportunity to review your laundry’s layout and ensure it’s as efficient as possible.

We know that it be daunting which is why we’re on hand to help you through the process. We understand every school is different and will work with you to find the solution which works for you. If you’d like some specialist advice then please get in touch.
