On-Premise and Vended Laundries Find Success with Electrolux Professional

Richard Jay has its roots in the coin laundry business, we understand the importance of selecting the right products to drive return traffic and customer satisfaction. That’s why we’re proud to promote Electrolux Professional washers in the competitive vend store arena.

Electrolux Professional is a global leader in On-Premise Laundry solutions, dominating this space with their innovative and reliable products. These washers are designed to stand the test of time, boasting an impressive designed lifespan of 30,000 cycles in the right conditions. To put this into perspective, that’s equivalent to 8 cycles per day for 10 years, three times longer than commercial washers and ten times longer than most domestic washers.
Here are the top five features that set Electrolux washers apart from the competition:

  • Power Balance
    Our advanced vibration management system utilises an accelerometer mounted to the outer drum. This technology monitors and manages extraction, resulting in the lowest maintenance requirements in the industry and the highest dewatering efficiency. This means reduced dry times and lower operational costs.
  • Efficient Dosing
    Electrolux washers incorporate Efficient Dosing, a system that weighs the load and adjusts water, chemical, and energy consumption to minimise inputs while ensuring the best possible cleaning results. This not only reduces operating costs but also enhances rinsing and the overall customer experience. Efficient Dosing is standard on Clarus Vibe controllers and optional on Compass Pro controllers.
  • Water Operated Drain Valves
    Our washers feature water-operated drain valves that reduce dead water by a remarkable 97%. This eliminates common maintenance and replacement issues associated with motorised gearbox drain valves found in competitor products.
  • Fully Programmable Controllers
    Electrolux offers fully programmable Compass Pro and Clarus Vibe controllers, allowing technicians to customise the wash process to achieve the best possible results every cycle.
  • Longevity and Spare Parts
    Electrolux washers have maintained consistent mechanical components across four generations of washers. This means that spare parts remain affordable even after the warranty period, and we can continue to support multiple generations without complicating our van stock. This approach increases our first-time fix rate and ensures uninterrupted operation for our customers.

Electrolux Professional washers cater to a wide range of segments, with the most common being:

  • On-Premise Laundries (OPLs)
    OPLs trust Electrolux Professional for its outstanding performance, proven longevity, and low maintenance requirements. While the initial investment may be slightly higher, businesses understand that the premium brand is well worth it in the long term. Efficient Dosing and affordable spare parts enhance efficiency and lower the total cost of ownership.
  • Vended Laundry Stores
    Vended laundry stores are experiencing significant growth, driven by customers who appreciate the premium Electrolux experience. With eight dedicated washer models available in stock for this segment, we’ve witnessed a shift from rigid to soft mount washers. This not only reduces dryer energy costs and speeds up throughput but also allows for greater site selection flexibility. Power Balance in H models minimises vibration and enhances extraction, ensuring an excellent customer experience.
  • Multi-Housing
    The multi-housing segment is transitioning from commercial to industrial platforms, with route or management agencies favouring the longer replacement window and truly professional wash results. Customers opting for professional-grade machines often witness a shift from private to public shared laundry use, contributing to a more sustainable future by reducing landfill of white goods and improving the overall laundry experience.
  • Facility Management
    Many facilities choose to clean mops and microfiber cloths on-site, promoting hygiene and sustainability. Electrolux Professional washers support this approach by delivering exceptional cleaning results.
  • Wet Cleaning
    Wet cleaning has gained popularity due to its eco-friendly approach using biodegradable chemicals. Electrolux has been a pioneer in this technology, offering industry-leading solutions backed by market-leading experts.
