Girbau’s new generation GENIUS Series of smart washers are designed to lower water, detergent and energy consumption while boosting productivity. These improvements support the sustainability of care home laundries that need to operate day in day out.

The innovative high spin washers can achieve up to 450G extract force for astounding levels of water extraction, faster drying and lower energy use. Tests on the Genius GS7018 found that it used 2.5 kWh for a full 18kg load cycle, compared to 3.5kWh for a comparable washer from a leading competitor. For a typical machine completing eight cycles per day, that’s a saving of over £900 a year, based on an electricity price of 31p per kWh.

An optional integral weighing system measures every load and automatically adjusts programs to further optimise cycle time, lower water and chemical usage and improve productivity. The new unique Care Plus Drum extends linen life and decreases tangling. The drum perforations also provide faster dispersion of water.

Genius washers offer unmatched durability and a high degree of programmability with high-speed spinning and automatic chemical dosing. The impact-resistant, full colour 10.5-inch waterproof screen is the industry’s largest. It features user-friendly icons that can be used while wearing gloves.

Sapphire remote-control software gives easy, flexible and versatile control. You can manage the laundry, compile production reports and analyse data remotely in real time from any device. Sapphire can also be used to configure washers to operate and record the use of thermal disinfection programs, essential in every care home.

For energy efficient drying, Girbau’s premium ED series dryers ensure all items are dried safely, uniformly, efficiently and cost-effectively. Their unique Transflow technology combines radial and axial airflow for maximum efficiency, reduced cycle times and lower energy costs. Cabinet insulation and a double-glazed door also prevent heat escaping.

Girbau also now offers professional grade under counter washers and dryers that fit underneath standard height counters. Both machines combine energy efficiency, ease of use and compact size with high quality, durable construction. The dryer can be stacked on top to save floor space. Its Sensi Dry system automatically determines the right drying time, saving energy and assuring fabric care.

Maintenance and servicing remain key considerations for care home laundries. With a team of company-trained engineers and direct access to the factory for spare parts, Girbau can respond quickly to any urgent customer calls with high levels of first-time fixes.
