S.A.F.E dryers are unique to JLA. You can trust our S.A.F.E technology to protect your people and your property from the risk of dryer fires. Our unique Sensor Activated Fire Extinguishing technology provides complete peace of mind by offering best-in-class industrial tumble dryer fire safety features.
It’s currently estimated that a tumble dryer fire will cost a business around £300,000. Plus, there are extra risks associated with loss of life and evacuation. As a result, having proper industrial laundry fire safety measures in place is vital.
The system used in our S.A.F.E industrial tumble dryers is the result of intense research and has been development in response to the growing number of fires in commercial dryers – estimated at around one a day by the Government.
How does the S.A.F.E system work?
Industrial tumble dryer fires can cause devastating damage to commercial settings. They can also put lives at risk; particularly if your premises has vulnerable people on-site.
Fires in industrial tumble dryers are usually caused by spontaneous combustion, where the heat of the laundry has gradually increased to the point of ignition. This is most commonly caused when loads have been left in the dryer after the cycle has finished.
Using two sensors to continuously monitor the temperature of the dryer drum for any significant changes, the S.A.F.E system activates an atomised water vapour mechanism that soaks the laundry in the drum of the machine, eliminating the chance of a fire occurring.
Our S.A.F.E system also removes the need to evacuate the property as the fire is contained and extinguished within the machine. Once the fire has been extinguished, the dryer can also start working again. However, after the S.A.F.E system has been activated, the control panel will inform your staff. You should then call us and one of our trained engineers will visit your premises to ensure that your industrial tumble dryer is back up and running properly.
As well as giving you complete peace of mind, our S.A.F.E dryers can also help with your fire risk assessments (as the risk of fire is significantly reduced). Plus, there’s no risk of flooding, damage to property and no need to evacuate.
