Energy-efficient laundry a hit with staff and residents

Residents at Walsh Manor in East Sussex have found the recently installed HS‑6008 Logi Pro washers and Econ-O-Dry dryers from Girbau UK easy to use, never out of action and cleaning clothes brilliantly, while the busy estates management team is no longer tied up repairing machines.

Walsh Manor provides living accommodation and facilities for 350 residents who work at the Church of Scientology Religious Education College at Saint Hill in East Grinstead, together with their families. Residents are responsible for their own laundry, including their staff uniforms and bedding, and require access to the laundry room 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

The laundry expansion and refurbishment saw the installation of 17 Girbau HS‑6008 Logi Pro washers and 17 Econ-O-Dry gas dryers in a stackable space-saving combination. All washers come with Girbau’s ‘Just in Load’ feature which allows the user to adjust the consumption of water and detergent according to the weight of the load and wash programme, by simply selecting one of four buttons on the control panel for a full, three-quarter, half or quarter load. US body Energy Star has named the Girbau HS-6008 washer as the most energy-efficient in its class.

The rental package offered by Girbau UK was key to making the new laundry a reality, and enabled Walsh Manor to benefit from the latest energy-efficient machines without a large capital outlay. Girbau UK also gives the estates management team access to a service helpline which guarantees a same-day/next-day response, freeing up more of their time for other jobs.
