Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems recently supplied a new Amazon W6 6kg washer extractor replacing an older model in Heffernan House operated by West Berkshire MENCAP in Newbury. The laundry also includes a Schulthess washer and a Huebsch LEZ dryer, also supplied by Armstrong.
Heffernan House offers good quality long term accommodation for six young adults with learning difficulties and also has one training suite where a resident with milder learning difficulties can come for up to two years to gain life skills experience which will enable him or her eventually to move into independent accommodation. Each accommodation unit comprises a single bedroom with en suite bathroom, a living room with some kitchen facilities. There are additional common areas where the residents can socialise if they wish. The laundry is used by the staff, and residents with support, and handles all the residents’ personal laundry as well as bedding towels and kitchen linen.
The Amazon W6 is a tough, durable, fully commercial machine designed to fit into the same space as a normal domestic washing machine, featuring rapid cycles and low energy consumption – making it the perfect, economical machine for small business units.
Lorraine Sadler from Heffernan House told us that the machine is easy for the residents to use, and is generally pleased with Armstrong’s products and services.
