Commercial Laundry Equipment

On-premise commercial laundries include a wide range of machines like washers and dryers that are made to withstand the heavy, relentless usage and the tough conditions of a multi-dwelling building. The quality of commercial laundry equipment can play a key role in its longevity, performance, and reliability. Equally important is how well you maintain the machines. 

At Automatic Industries, Inc., we make it easier for you by installing laundry equipment, maintaining it, and processing all collections. You even get extra revenue through the rent that we pay to use the space. While we will manage the entire process, it helps to have a solid understanding of different types of commercial laundry equipment.

Types of Commercial Laundry Equipment


Commercial washers come in front-loading or top-loading styles. They range from smaller sizes that are used to wash everyday loads of laundry to larger sizes that are used to tackle laundry loads that are three times to four times the size of everyday loads; we install these commercial, industrial grade machinery right on-premise of your apartment building. Some washers also have smart features that offer remote monitoring and control using real-time data. Automatic Industries, Inc., can install Speed Queen and Wascomat /LaundryLux machines as they are reliable, durable, and energy efficient with proven performance. 


Commercial dryers also come in various sizes. Most of these machines use a rotating drum to evenly dry clothes and linens. In some facilities, stack dryers are commonly used as they offer space optimization. There are also options for gas or electric dryers — this is dependent on the building’s utility setup. If you need a quick turnaround allow Automatic Industries Inc to install machinery that offers express drying features.

Speed Queen, Wascomat, and LaundryLux Washers, commonly found in laundromats, are built to endure usage. Residents give these products favorable consumer ratings, and they are preferred by managers. The Speed Queen Horizon is Energy Star-rated, resulting in water and energy conservation and utility savings for the property. The product offers additional options for extra-soiled clothing. For an additional fee, residents can add features such as an extra rinse cycle or a longer soak cycle.

Speed Queen Dryers combined heat and axel airflow. They are engineered to detect moisture in clothing. This energy-efficient process saves energy for the building and reduces dry time for the consumer. Residents can add incremental top-off time to the dryers for an additional fee. 

Choosing the Best Commercial Laundry Equipment For Your Needs 

For your laundry room, you want equipment that will deliver performance and efficiency and last a long time. We understand that it can get overwhelming to pick the right equipment, so we suggest you choose Automatic Industries, Inc. as your laundry service provider. Our team will evaluate the property’s space and give a suggestion based on the property’s needs and spatial availability. Here are some of the factors we consider when making our recommendations. 

Capacity and Size

The capacity and size of commercial laundry equipment that you need depends on your requirements. Some laundry facilities have limited space, so we focus on space optimization. The capacity and size you need can also depend on the demographic of your building, as certain commercial buildings may require machines that can handle heavy loads.

Efficiency and Energy Consumption

One of the biggest challenges for building owners and management is the rising costs of energy. Ideally, you want to upgrade your laundry equipment to newer and more advanced machines that offer better energy efficiency compared to older units. You can save on water and electricity costs with energy-efficient commercial laundry equipment. 

Even small savings in energy can accumulate substantial amounts of money in the long run. Improvements in technology happen quickly, so older machines may not deliver the same efficiency as the latest models. At Automatic Industries, Inc., we carry energy-efficient models that have been tried and tested to deliver energy savings for our customers, reducing utilities in the process. 

Durability and Maintenance

Commercial laundry machines get used a lot more than regular home laundry equipment. This makes durability a key factor when choosing a service provider. The durability and the overall build quality depend on how well the washer or dryer is constructed, the materials used, and other elements. With commercial laundry equipment, you want the materials to be resistant to harsh conditions so you don’t have to worry about frequent maintenance and repairs. 

Customization Options

The top commercial laundry facilities come with a variety of customization options, which can help you tailor the machines according to your needs. For example, you can use programmable controls to choose rinse options and wash cycles. 

Some equipment also offers customization tools for you to control temperature, water levels, and detergent dispensing. The technology in the commercial laundry industry has taken rapid strides in the last few years, and every year it keeps getting more advanced. However, not all businesses need customization options, so we will factor in your requirements in our recommendations for the equipment your building needs.
