Exposure to soiled turnout & bunker gear is not safe.

Not only does it expose firefighters to chemicals, biological agents, and particulate matter, but it also affects the longevity of gear life. In order to properly clean and sanitize the turnout and bunker gear, experts agree that that a highly programmable turnout gear washer-extractor must be used. These turnout gear washers are simple to use and programmed to protect the warranties provided by the gear manufacturers, as well as meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) guidelines.



Laundry Chemical Systems for Turnout Gear Washers.

Rely solely on our chemical injection pumps to properly disseminate detergents into your washer in the exact quantity and at the correct times in the wash cycle. The pumps work with machines that have trigger signals as well as machines without them. With the V-Line Pump system, there is a consistent wash every time no matter who is doing the laundry.
