How to get the best out of a self-service laundry?

Following the boom in the establishment of self-service laundries in Spain, a little more than a year ago we told you how to set up a self-service laundry. We described the most suitable premises, what sort of machines to use and the staff required in an establishment of this nature. One year later, the boom continues. As experts in the manufacture and marketing of equipment for this type of laundry, we would like to offer further information on this subject. Our aim is to provide you with information about the most appropriate type of machinery for the type of establishment you wish to purchase.


Which is the most suitable self-service kit?

It is necessary to determine what type of washer extractor is required to offer potential users maximum satisfaction. However, we must also remember that requirements vary according to the market in question.
High spin speed washer extractors are most popular in Europe thanks to their efficiency and low installation costs, as they do not need securing to the ground, and the installation process is practically a plug & play process. The cost of these washer extractors is somewhat higher than medium and standard spin speed machines, but we should also remember that European self-service laundries tend to be smaller than American ones.
In the American market, self-service laundries tend to be larger with more washer extractors and dryers, therefore the initial investment is of more significance. This is why standard spin speed machines are the best choice, given their lower cost. However, ways of thinking are now changing in this market and there is a move towards high and fast spin speed machines. This type of machinery is highly energy efficient, enabling long-term reductions in costs.

The washer extractors in the LA series have a spin speed of between 700 and 1000 rpm. The residual humidity after the final spin is between 45% and 55% in this type of machine

The washer extractors in the LR series have a spin speed of between 700 and 820 rpm. The residual humidity after the final spin is between 60% and 70% in this type of machine.
