High-speed Extract Improves Customer Turnover
G-Flex Washers generate extract speeds of 200 G-force, while most other hard-mount washers only reach speeds of 75-150 G-force. As extract speeds increase, so does the amount of moisture removed from every load during extract. In turn, G-Flex laundry loads take less time to dry, which cuts natural gas usage and improves customer turnover – boosting store profit potential.
Programmable Extract Speeds
G-Flex Washers deliver the flexibility of six programmable extract speeds, including 100, 140 and 200 G-force. G-force extract speeds on the G-Flex Washer can also be adjusted to meet most coin laundries' specific foundation requirements. Not all vended laundries have the 8-inch concrete foundation required to operate a 200 G-force hard-mount washer. The G-Flex can operate on a lesser foundation by adjusting G-force extract accordingly. Programmable G-force is critical when installation variables are not ideal.
G-Flex Washers operate on single-phase power – simplifying installation.
ProfitPlus™ Offers Customer-craved 'Extras' & Simple Owner Programmability
The ProfitPlus Control – which works seamlessly with card technology or coins – brings more washing options and cycle features to the customer. It offers four primary cycle options: SUPERWASH, an extra-long cycle for heavy soil; HOT, for whites; WARM for colorfast and permanent press items; and COLD for colors. It also allows the customer to add an EXTRA WASH, EXTRA RINSE and/or DELICATE CYCLE.
SUPERWASH, HOT, WARM, and COLD are individually modifiable, by the storeowner, and allow programmability of G-force extract, mechanical action, wash temperature (by degree), water levels and wash/rinse/extract time in each phase. The control's flexibility allows multi-level vend pricing on the same machine depending on the wash program selected, time of day, or day of the week. Additionally, owners can program variables within the EXTRA WASH, EXTRA RINSE and DELICATE CYCLE options, including the extra wash or rinse time in minutes, the addition of another bath, vend price and G-force extract speed.
G-Flex Washers feature an optional serial communication feature that gives card-operated laundry owners control over many of their store's functions remotely via the Internet. Washer and payment system features, including vend pricing, cycle time, water levels, bath temperatures, and diagnostics, can be reviewed and modified by the storeowners in a few minutes! This dramatically expands income and efficiency potential!
Packed with green-engrained features, G-Flex Washers feature a sump-less design, which saves up to three gallons of water with each fill. The exclusive AquaFall™ system further conserves water. AquaFall releases water into each load through holes in the drum lifters for better saturation and rinsing. In turn, vended laundries conserve water and save in water heating costs.
Optimum Dosing and Temperature Management
The Washer offers four dosing compartments (two for powder and two for liquid products). Cleaning products are always diluted in a collector before being introduced into the washer drum, avoiding direct contact with laundry. The AquaMixer™ system, a hot- and cold-water mixer, obtains very precise bath temperatures – providing optimum temperature management and minimizing hot water consumption.
Simple to Maintain and Durably Constructed
G-Flex Washers feature durable AISI-304 stainless steel inner and outer drums. The front, side and top panels are constructed of steel and coated with Continental's unique Titan Steel Finish™ for superior appearance and corrosion resistance. An oversized door, which allows for easy loading and unloading, is equipped with a heavy-duty, bolt-style hinge to withstand the rigors of a busy coin laundry. No wonder G-Flex is backed by a leading 10/4/3-year ContinentalCare™ warranty.
