Safety, achieved through precision and control

Technology, intuition and precision in perfect balance: Benchmark models combine efficient washing and drying technologies, intuitive operation and adjustable disinfection programmes to deliver a professional system solution that guarantees maximum hygiene, smooth sequences and sustainable processes in the care sector.

The professional system solution for maximum hygiene

The highest level of protection against infection

Adjustable hygiene programmes with high temperatures, long holding times and special rinse cycles guarantee safe disinfection and thorough reprocessing of towels, home textiles, residents’ laundry and workwear. The patented honeycomb drum 2.0 ensures gentle care that retains the value of the items and delivers a perfect finish even if the load is heavily soiled and contains delicate materials – particularly with full loads and at high spin speeds.
