Using the right laundry equipment can actually help save lives

Look after your Nomex® fire garments and other coatings with an In-house Laundry.

The washing programs used in Electrolux Professional systems ensure that cleaning has no negative impact on the fire-retardant qualities of Nomex® and other coatings – without compromising on cleaning performance.

As part of the cleaning process, your garments can also be impregnated.
Rely on the experience of a global player
and leading partner:

  • 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.
