Samsung Professional Laundry](http://www.samsung.com/uk/#latest-home) has launched a range of commercial, large-drummed washers fitted with life-extending anti-vibration technology that cost up to 60% less than comparable models.
Anti-vibration technology is the only effective way of counteracting unbalanced loads, which cause noisy vibrations that can damage the equipment and shorten its life span, but it is normally only found on more expensive machines.
Because the VRT-equipped machines are quieter, they can be located in noise-sensitive areas or run overnight without disturbing guests.
The WF431 washers also carry a new washing cycle - Bedding - which works in tandem with VRT to cope with large bulky items such as blankets and duvets. They can handle up to 28 bath towels at a time in the generous, 100-litre capacity drums.
The washing machines also allow operators to cut energy costs and wash at lower temperatures by incorporating Samsung's Eco Bubble technology. This dissolves the detergent in air and water before the wash cycle begins, allowing it to penetrate the fabric more quickly, evenly and deeply.
The washers all connect to a normal 13 amp power supply.
