Oshkosh, Wis.— Sports Laundry Systems® recently added the new 70-pound capacity G-Flex Washer to its most advanced line of hard-mount flexible-speed washers. The G-Flex line now includes 40-, 55-, and 70-pound capacity models. Superior programmability, including G-force, brings premium program and process flexibility to athletic laundries at an affordable price point, according to Steve Leib, national sales manager.
Sports Laundry Systems team high-performance washer-extractors and drying tumblers with an ozone injection system. Unlike other laundry offerings on the market, Sports Laundry Systems clean and disinfect athletic laundry by eliminating 99.9 percent of bacteria, viruses and superbugs, including MRSA, in the wash.
“G-Flex Washers deliver the flexibility of six programmable extract speeds, including 100, 140 and 200 G-force, at an affordable value,” said Leib. “There are other washers on the market that offer flexible G-force, but they are typically more expensive, high-end machines. Now, thanks to G-Flex Washers, athletic laundries can benefit from superior program flexibility, durability and performance at a value price.”
Thanks to programmable G-force, G-Flex Washers can also operate on lesser foundations. Now, with the introduction of the 70-pound capacity model, athletic laundries will enjoy more productivity using less labor and energy, according to Leib. It offers 21 percent more capacity than the 55-pound model and fits through a standard 34.5-inch door opening.
G-Flex Washers generate extract speeds reaching 200 G-force, while most other hard-mount washers only reach speeds of 75-100 G-force. In turn, G-Flex laundry loads take less time to dry, which improves athletic laundry productivity and cuts natural gas usage and labor time.
Additionally, superior programmability means athletic laundries can properly clean a variety of items, including towels, loops, uniforms and practice gear. Operators simply select a program number and press start. The highly flexible Logi Pro Control offers 25 individually modifiable programs — each with up to 11 baths, including multiple pre-wash, wash and rinse cycles. Variables within each bath — including wash temperature, water levels, cycle times, rotation and G-force extract speeds — can be individually programmed for maximum efficiency given the load type.
G-Flex Washers feature durable AISI-304 stainless steel inner and outer drums. The front, side and top panels are constructed of steel and coated with a Titan Steel Finish™ for superior appearance and corrosion resistance. An oversized door, which allows for easy loading and unloading, is equipped with a heavy-duty, bolt-style hinge to withstand the rigors of constant use.
The new 70-pound G-Flex Washer has the option to operate on single-phase power — simplifying installation. It also features a sump-less design, which saves up to three gallons of water with each fill. Its exclusive AquaFall® system further conserves water. AquaFall releases water into each load through holes in the drum lifters for better saturation and rinsing. In turn, athletic laundries save water and water heating costs. The G-Flex AquaMixer® system mixes hot and cold water to achieve precise bath temperatures — minimizing hot water consumption.
Sports Laundry Systems — engineered for durability and years of continued use – are backed by industry-leading factory warranties. Engineered for efficiency, the System also qualifies for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits, which can contribute to LEED certification.
