Fire Departments

NFPA 1851 standards for handling turnout gear are perhaps the most important factors to consider in setting up a laundry. Standards have been set to ensure this equipment is properly cleaned while not damaging the technical fibers that make up the shell or moisture barriers. Programmable wash cycles will help departments keep control of the wash process while maintaining a high degree of flexibility to launder station wear, truck towels and other items. Programmable controls enable operators to utilize lower-speed wash and extract cycles for turnout gear, while having the option of higher speeds to trim drying times for other items.
