The cost of outsourcing laundry for businesses such as hotels and veterinary practices can often mean that an on-premise laundry (OPL) facility is a far more effective option. An OPL not only reduces the business’ overheads, but also has other key benefits, including faster turnaround of essential equipment, such as linen, uniform and clothing. It can also help improve infection control by reducing the amount of time soiled items spend in bags waiting to be laundered.
It’s important to choose the right machines when introducing OPL, to offer the business the maximum in life cycle costings. The key is to select equipment designed for business use rather than domestic use. Here are the main benefits commercial laundry equipment provides over domestic:
We understand the power of laundry equipment, which is why we offer a vast range of machines and appliances to suit all types of requirements. The OPL Group has been providing customers with bespoke, quality laundry equipment since 1970 and expanding ever since. Please visit our testimonials for examples of customers and what they have to say about their experience with The OPL Group.
Different companies have different needs, so the right appliance is essential. For example, traditional washing machines are great for handling large loads, while the likes of barrier washers can provide safe infection control services. If you’re not sure what you need, we can help you find the right tools for the job, choosing from our range of:
Similarly, you also need to consider the size and dimensions of your work space. We have plenty of experience helping companies large and small. If you have space limitations, we can advise you on stackable options to help maximise the productivity and efficiency.
If you haven’t invested in commercial laundry equipment yet, you may be wondering why it’s so beneficial. The fact is, if you’re cleaning a large amount of laundry, or even just small loads on a frequent basis, commercial grade appliances are cheaper in the long run.
Our commercial laundry equipment represents a one-time investment. Don’t rely on third party services to clean your fabrics and clothing articles. In time, this laundry equipment will essentially pay for itself through savings. Of course, it’s also much more practical to have this machinery on-site. It allows you to integrate it into your work processes.
The OPL Group offer both new and used industrial laundry equipment. We help you to meet all of your needs regardless of your budget. In everything we offer, we can provide after sales agreements. This is something many companies are unsure of, yet we have the ideal solution.
Not only do we provide high quality products every time, we can also agree on maintenance costs upfront. If this is something you are interested in, please get in touch.
Whether you’re a small firm or a large chain, the right laundry is vital. It keeps your supplies clean and staff uniforms looking at their best. Investing in commercial grade laundry equipment is an effective way to maintain quality across your entire business. Furthermore, it will save costs from relying on other companies and old equipment. If you’re looking to improve your laundry and washing operations, The OPL Group has the appliances for you taking into consideration:
Commercial washing machines are designed to withstand constant use over many years. The components of commercial machines are designed to withstand constant use, with items such as hinges, handles and door locks on commercial washing machines tested to perform for years ahead. This rigorous testing results in a machine that is less likely to break down due to frequent use.
Whilst commercial washing machines are more expensive as an initial capital outlay, the cost over the life of the machines makes it a more cost-effective option. Constant use of domestic machines result in faster wear and tear and more regular upgrades. Commercial equipment requires less maintenance work, resulting in a cheaper long-term cost.
Commercial machines have shorter cycle times than domestic. The benefit of this time saving can be crucial in many businesses. For example, in hotels this means turning around rooms quickly and being prepared for new customers due to arrive.
Water Regulatory Advisory Scheme (WRAS) compliance:
WRAS is a regulation which means that washing machines cannot allow soiled or contaminated water from the washer to enter the mains supply. It’s a legal requirement for healthcare organisations to be compliant with this. Certain commercial laundry equipment suppliers are approved by WRAS to the highest level (category 5), which no domestic machines can offer.
New equipment means new technology that doesn’t require as much water and electricity. Therefore, utility costs will decrease once you’ve upgraded your laundry setup.
Costs savings are not only from cutting consumption / utilities, you can also benefit by needing less maintenance with new reliable efficient equipment. Maintenance can be that x-factor that increases operation costs if running problematic equipment which in time will exceed the capital outlay for replacements.
