When the equipment in a small laundry in a block of flats managed by Olympia Estates in London needed replacing, Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems were once again selected to supply the new machines. So at the end of 2012 a Speed Queen Horizon 8kg front loading washer and a matching dryer, both coin operated, were installed at the site in Linden Gardens.
The block comprises 22 rented flats and the laundry area is accessible to all the tenants and is checked three times a week by the management. The cleaning and maintenance team look after it and make sure it is kept clean and tidy.
The Horizon washer is designed to operate with minimum water consumption. It has a large door opening and high spin speed of 1000rpm to help dry the laundry before it is moved to the dryer. Wash programmes are easily adjustable and a digital display provides the user with information, including the remaining wash time. The dryer features a large door for fast loading and unloading, a quiet, efficient blower system with superior airflow and four temperature/fabric selections. It is easy to clean and maintain, and again features a digital information panel.
Michal Dusek, assistant director of Olympia Estates told us he was very pleased with both the equipment and the service provided by Armstrong.
