Since 2010, LG Commercial Laundry have provided thousands of businesses with commercial grade front load washers and dryers, which has improved the way laundry is processed in their facilities.
As customers look for an improved laundry experience & choose to use equipment that best supports a sustainable future, Richard Jay made the decision in 2019 to stop supplying Top-load washers to their customers.
Compared to Top-load washers, Front-load washers use 50% less water and extract more water in the final spin delivering shorter drying times, which saves massive amounts of water & energy over the products life. The superior cleaning experience & enhanced reliability, together with accelerometer managed imbalances, further protects your investment & the garments being laundered.
For businesses looking for exceptional cleaning performance & low maintenance costs, LG has proven to be the preferred choice made by many Australians.
Below is a table showing comparative data between Commercial Front-load & Top-load washers. This will hopefully provide enough information to help make a more informed decision & improve the way customers process laundry.
