Wash your own high visibility garments

Aug 24, 2012
Users can now wash their own high-vis jackets with the Miele Professional washer and dryer.

This could save money for companies that have a high usage of high-vis garments.

Like any type of clothing, high-vis garments can fade, become soiled or torn; but with high-visibility apparel, these imperfections can reduce the effectiveness of the garment. These items usually need to be sent off site to a specialist cleaner for washing and reprocessing, however the Miele equipment can care for them with a specially designed programme.

Valuable protective garments are ready for re-use after only approximately 2.5 hours – washed, dried and with repellent properties fully reinstated.  This is guaranteed by thorough but gentle wash processes together with Miele’s patented honeycomb drum ensuring that expensive garments retain their value. The detergent used in washing these types of garments is paramount to maintain the quality of the reflective strips.   The temperature does not exceed 70 degrees to ensure reflective and sealing tapes and fabrics are not damaged in the drying process.

Les Marshall, Sales and Marketing Director, Miele Professional explained: “Contracting work out to a commercial laundry involves considerable effort, distances and waiting times and often results in the need for double the amount of inventory.”
