Laundries for Equine, Animal Sector and Veterinary Practices


Sites where horses or smaller animals are cared for often have a need for a laundry facility that can be as busy and important as any involved in human care.


Among the types of site that Armstrong supply are livery stables, racing stables and horse rehabilitation and rescue centres.

Blankets, rugs and coolers are big and bulky, and often very dirty. Choosing the right machine to wash them is very important. Armstrong’s invaluable experience will help you to prevent costly mistakes. Other stable items such as rubbers and staff overalls are also better washed on the premises.

The best washers are the industrial grade front loading Primus floor secured RX models with capacities from 7-52kg.

Small animal units

These include rescue centres and boarding kennels and catteries where there may be bedding and other small items in addition to staff overalls.

Veterinary surgeries

Again these may have bedding for small animals kept overnight and may have additional requirements relating to infection control.

Small washer/dryer combinations such as the stacking units in the Amazon, Schulthess and Horizon ranges will often be suitable for small sites where space is in short supply – but Armstrong will advise on the best equipment for the circumstances, and also on the most suitable finance package.

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.”
