When Buying Commercial Dryers


Nice-to-Have or a Must-Have?

Ironers can often be thought of as a “nice-to-have” when it comes to on-premise laundries. However, you may be surprised to learn that depending on the ironer and your laundry objectives, an ironer may just be a must-have in saving your laundry time and money. Not to mention the level of linen finish quality they can deliver. So, when exactly is it time to invest in an ironer?
Commercial ironers are used for flatwork only, this includes tablecloths, napkins, pillow cases, and bedsheets. If your laundry is processing around 25kg an hour of flatwork linen, then you could benefit from an ironer.

Reduce Drying Time & Manual Labour

Did you know that a commercial ironer will reduce or completely eliminate the drying phase of the laundry cycle? More powerful ironers require laundry be taken straight from the washer and processed through the ironer. Other ironers will require some time in the dryer to achieve a specified percentage of humidity before they can be processed through the ironer.
Another benefit of adding a commercial ironer to your laundry is the manual labour hours it can reduce, particularly if you’re currently ironing by hand. It’s important to note that manual labour will always be the most expensive operational cost in a laundry. You may find that the ironer will pay for itself in time [Read: QT Hotel Saves 20 Hours of Labour Per Day].

Add Value to Your Business

Adding a commercial ironer to your laundry will also lift your linen finish quality. This can add value to your business, elevating your reputation among customers, and even be a reason to increase prices.

There’s an Ironer to Suit Any Laundry

There are a whole variety of ironers to suit any industry and any laundry. Their capabilities can range from processing 25kg an hour to over 900kg an hour. The ironer that is right for your business will come down to a number of things: laundry objectives, the amount of laundry processed, upfront capital expenditure [Visit: Finance Options], the size and space of the laundry, and the number of operators you intend to employ.
