Last year the Dhobi World Launderette in Uckfield replaced their three existing dryers with four Speed Queen 35lb capacity gas heated dryers.
According to owner Richard Balkham the new dryers have proved very popular with his customers – their large capacity means that people are less likely to have to wait for a dryer,
and “particularly at this time of year we get a lot of customers coming in just to use the dryers when they can’t dry laundry outdoors,” he told us. Richard said he had seen quite
a lot about Armstrong in the laundry press, and got several quotes when he was re-equipping, and Armstrong came out best.
The launderette is open from 9.00am – 7.00pm seven days a week, and is attended Monday to Friday. During this time the attendant offers a service wash service to private customers as well as local b&bs and a number of sports clubs for washing kit, plus a duvet service.
The Speed Queen dryers comprise a high quality, corrosion resistant drum with embossed easy-to-clean front and side panels and a large opening stainless steel door which can open to 180o making loading and unloading easy even with very large items. The dryers Dhobi World selected have a capacity of 17.4kg, but the dryers are available with capacities from 11-24.5kg (217-491 litre) with two twin door dryers offering a total of 30-42kg (602-842 litre)capacities.
Richard told us he was very happy with the new dryers which have been largely trouble free since he got them, and with the service offered by Armstrong.
