Infection control and sanitation is a primary concern for both public and private hospitals. Washing machines and dishwashers used within the medical industry must be highly effective in killing superbugs and infections to prevent unnecessary spreading of illness and disease.
Hospital laundry equipment applications vary from on-premises patient laundry facilities to ward use. With the essential need of thermal disinfection and sanitisation, we can advise on the most appropriate machines for your requirements. Options can vary from compact sluice machines with WRAS approval to large-capacity barrier machines for the ultimate in infection control.
The professional range of multi-programmable washing machines offer a number of features that make them ideal for use in the medical industry: To follow the recommendation of the NHS Executive Health Service Guideline HSG(95)18, all models fitted with dump valve drain systems are also equipped with efficient thermal disinfection wash programmes and sluice options. Our choice of laundry equipment for the NHS and private hospitals is guaranteed to meet the guidelines.
Because the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations of 1999 classify hospitals and nursing homes as high risk applications (Category 5), these models are also tested and approved by the WRAS scheme as able to be connected to mains water in any applications.
Public and Private hospital laundry equipment must reach consistently high standards of disinfection and sanitation in order to minimise the risk of cross-infection when processing contaminated hospital laundry.
