Energy efficiency and garment care were Girbau’s core priorities when developing the new Genius series of commercial washing machines, which feature state-of-the-art technological innovations to offer solutions tailored to the needs of each and every new client, said the company as it launched the range

More control and connectivity
According to Girbau, as a pioneer in the application of intelligent systems, the new range of washing machines offers the most advanced connectivity and intelligence in all equipment with no need for additional devices. All the washing machines are equipped with BLE and Wi-Fi as well as a touch panel so they can be operated, adjusted and updated using Sapphire, the technological platform developed by Girbau.

Energy savings
In terms of the environment, the Genius series goes the extra mile to offer significant energy savings. According to Girbau's own calculations, the range’s high spin speed (450 G) – higher than previous product ranges and those of other manufacturers – reduces drying time by 10% and power consumption by 30%.

Significant water savings are also achieved through improved drum surface, a modular weighing system and precise control of water and chemicals, which ensures optimal care of your garments, prolongs their life and increases the effectiveness of washing in combatting pathogens.

Ease of use
The new generation of machines features the largest touchscreen on the market, 10.1", as well as the best interface, said Girbau. The touchscreen is designed for industrial environments. It’s shockproof and scratch-proof, suitable for use with gloves and in humid environments, and very user friendly. Another important feature is the 360 Vision concept, an LED indicator in the corner of each machine that allows the machine’s status to be seen from anywhere in the laundry. This helps to increase productivity by preventing interruptions and downtime between washes.

Mercè Girbau, chair and CEO of Girbau emphasises that, “We’re proud to show the world that the Girbau community is working diligently to make a positive impact on the planet and people in a sustainable manner. Girbau's new Genius series is the result of uniting commitment and innovation, a clear example of the efforts of the entire Girbau community to make a positive impact on the planet. We want this new generation of machines to mark a before and after on the road to a better and more sustainable world.”
