What to consider when choosing a machine

The secret to finding the best commercial washing machine is engaging with an expert laundry consultant who will be able to ask you the right questions to find the best washing machine that meets your unique needs and that will last you for years to come. Things that should be considered when selecting a commercial washing machine include, the size of the space, the daily and weekly throughput, any future plans of expanding, the types of linen that are being processed, number of employees, utility access, and of course, budget.

Washer types and sizes

Aqualogic has an extensive range of commercial washers to suit every need. The range can be broken up into three types of washing machines; small-commercial, commercial, and industrial.

Small-Commercial

Semi-commercial washing machines are perfect for businesses that typically only process small amounts of laundry, but frequently. Industries that this might apply to could be laundromats, caravan parks, motels, gyms, hairdressers, vets, and spas. Our range covers top load, front load, and stacked units. Top loaders are most suited to those with a minimal budget; front loaders are a little more expensive but are more efficient using less water and energy; stacked washer-dryers are great for saving on space.

Commercial

Commercial washing machines are very robust and are built to handle the demands of a laundry that is constantly active. They come in a range of sizes, from 6.5kg to 70kg. Industries that are most suited for these washing machines would include correctional facilities, healthcare, aged care, hotels, laundromats, and commercial laundries. Options for this range include softmount and hardmount. Softmount washers are designed to absorb the shock and are installed on a plinth which is securely attached to the floor. Softmount washers are popular because of their easy installation and can spin much faster. Hardmount washers send the shock into the ground, and therefore require a thick slab of concrete flooring to be attached to. Hardmount washers are known best for their lower price tag and their ability to stay balanced with underloading. Read more on their differences here. Barrier washers are also an option within this range. Barrier washers reduce the risk of contamination further by having two openings to the washing machine, separating the laundry into a soiled side and a clean side. Read more on barrier washers here.

Industrial

Industrial washing machines are extremely heavy duty and come in a range of shapes and sizes. They start at 18kg capacity and go all the way up to 180kg. They’re available in softmount, hardmount, barrier, and tunnel batch washers. They’re best suited to industries such as commercial laundries, large hotels, and any laundries that are processing high amounts of linen daily. They come with a higher price tag but you’re paying for premium products with top speed and durability.
