New improved Huebsch and Speed Queen Horizon machines for smaller laundries now available from Armstrong

Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems is now supplying a number new washers and dryers from Huebsch and Horizon, for smaller on-premises laundries, which feature various product improvements.

The Huebsch 8kg YWN commercial topload washer has new, easy-to-use electronic touch pad controls which offer much greater cycle flexibility and up to a 29% saving on water consumption compared with the previous electro-mechanical model.  The machine retains all its best selling features including stainless steel wash tub, steel outer drum, automatic out-of-balance handling system and, most popular of all, cycle times as short as 16 minutes with clear cycle status indicators.  The new electronic touchpad controls on the matching YDE/YDG dryer combines temperature and cycle selection in one simple operation – no more rotary controls.

New electronic controls again feature on the upgraded Speed Queen Horizon range of washers, dryers, stack dryers and laundry centres (dryer above washer), with angled control panels that are easier to use than the previous vertical ones.  In addition, the washer has a new 97 litre (10kg) drum, 20% bigger than the previous model, but with no extra utility consumption.  This is because a 1200rpm spin on final extract produces 440G to remove more water which consequently shortens drying times and dryer energy inputs.

What our clients say...

  • “Our machines have come from several suppliers – there is a big difference in the standards of support we receive and Armstrong gets 10 out of 10 – their service has been consistently excellent over several years and when you’re as busy as we are, that’s very important.”

    Jacqui Butler

  • “It’s important to get the right equipment for the job, too small and it won’t do it properly, too big and you are wasting money, energy and space. It is also important to deal with a company you trust to supply reliable equipment and give you the support you need. As expected, the installation went smoothly, we have never had the slightest problem and I know Armstrong will deal with it if we do.”
