Why High Spin Technology is the Future of the Laundry Industry

When you begin searching for the right commercial laundry equipment for your business, you may come across the term “high spin”. But what does it mean, and why is it so important for the laundry industry?

Simply put, high spin refers to the speed achieved by your commercial washer during the wash cycle. The higher the spin, the more water is extracted from the load at the end of the wash, giving a head start to the drying cycle. This results in faster laundry times, lower energy costs, and a better customer experience, enabling laundry businesses to increase their profitability like never before. Let’s look at some of the ways upgrading to high spin commercial laundry equipment can help you grow your business!

Customer experience

The laundromat industry is very competitive, with more and more investors entering the business every year. A high spin laundromat enables your store to rise above the competition and win more loyal customers by offering an unbeatable laundry experience.

Incredible wash results

High spin washers remove more dirt and soap residue from the load resulting in cleaner clothes that look and feel new. Water-saving technology like Automatic Savings not only helps lower your running costs but also creates more friction in the drum, providing a deeper clean.

Faster laundry times

High spin washers and reversing dryers deliver faster laundry times, so customers can wash and dry in as little as 45 minutes!

Longer garment life

Because laundry begins to dry at the end of the wash cycle, clothes need less time in the dryer. This protects items from overheating, extending the life of customers’ favorite items.

Utility savings

If you run a laundromat or on-site laundry room as part of your business, your commercial dryers will contribute to a large percentage of your total operating costs. High spin washers help to minimize this expense by drying the load towards the end of the wash cycle, leading to shorter drying times and massive energy savings. Successfully targeting your gas and electricity consumption boosts your profitability and ensures your revenue goes back into growing your business.

Easy installation

High spin washers offer soft mount installation, which makes retooling your laundromat or laundry room quicker, easier, and less costly. Faster drying times mean the number of dryers to fulfill your laundry requirements is reduced, so you can replace fewer units to meet your needs. The flexibility of soft mount laundry equipment also enables a range of commercial spaces to be converted into a laundromat more easily and economically.

Benefits of soft mount equipment

  • Swift installation with less machine downtime or revenue loss
  • Lower installation cost (requires less labor)
  • Can be installed on any floor type or level
  • Fewer dryers are needed when paired with high spin washers

Q: How can high spin laundry equipment make my business more profitable?

A: High spin washers offer business owners greater revenue and lower utility costs. With a faster throughput, laundromat owners can serve more happy customers on their busiest days and on-premises laundry teams can maximize productivity. Quicker drying times also result in lower energy bills, enabling your business to boost its profitability to new levels.

Q: Can soft mount washers compete with traditional hard mount washers in terms of durability?

A: Absolutely! It’s a common misconception amongst laundry owners that heavily bolted-down equipment equals more strength and durability. Designed with robust yet lightweight riveted frames used widely in the aerospace industry, our high spin washers prove that this is incorrect.

With ultra-durable parts, water and energy-saving features, and unique balancing technology our high spin washers achieve longer equipment life and lower running costs than hard-mount models.
