A great many educational establishments whether residential or not, have some requirement for laundry. At Armstrong we have decades of experience in advising on exactly the right combination of equipment for any situation.

University and college launderettes

A launderette is a vital service on a university or college campus or in a hall of residence where there is a large community of students, generally living in single room units. The equipment in such units will often get even harder wear than an average high street launderette as they are generally unattended and can be in use many hours through the day and night.

  • Speed Queen Horizon washers and dryers specifically designed for the multi use market are an ideal choice
  • All payment systems available, including bank cards and Apple Pay
  • Finance packages include a tailor-made revenue sharing operation

Boarding schools

Obviously boarding schools have a range or requirements from bedding, towels, dining room and kitchen items through to pupils and staff’s personal clothing and games kit. At Armstrong we often supply schools that have two or three small laundries – one in each of the girls’ and boy’s changing rooms where muddy games kit can be washed as it is taken off and another laundry in the residential block for bedding and personal clothing.

Non-residential schools

Many day schools install a small laundry to handle games kit.

Special schools

Whether day or boarding, special schools will share the requirements of mainstream schools but may have additional requirements for compliance in handling soiled items.

Equipment and finance

  • Armstrong will carry out a feasibility study and then advise on the most effective and economic combination of equipment for the individual circumstances.
  • This will include washer extractors from Huebsch, Schulthess, Primus or the Amazon ranges, all of which are available in a range of sizes to suit any type of unit, combined with Huebsch or Speed Queen tumble dryers.
  • A range of finance packages are available including leasing or fixed price rental.



Armstrong re-equip the laundries at St Stephen’s House in Oxford which house post-graduate students.

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.”
