Locker Performance

Penco Products has developed PowderCoatplusTM an environmentally sound, cost-effective way of improving the durability and rust resistance of steel lockers. Powder coat paint on cold rolled steel is more rust-resistant than painted electro-galvanized (EG) steel. PowderCoatplus TM has outperformed liquid painted EG steel in salt spray and impact tests. The first step of the PowderCoatplus system is a thorough pretreatment to remove lubricating oils from the steel surface to insure a lasting bond of the paint to the steel. Then the powder coat enamel is applied in a highly automated electrostatic spray booth and baked to an attractive, hard surface.

On-Site Sudser

The Pro-SeriesTM line of washer extractors from Continental is an on-premise laundry solution for optimum laundry-room performance and energy-saving strategies. Available in capacities ranging from 18 pounds to 255 pounds, these machines are freestanding units that require no bolt-down or conventional concrete foundations. They extract at speeds almost four times greater than a standard hard-mount washer, meaning that more of the moisture is removed from fabrics upon completion of the wash cycle and bottlenecks created at the dryer are reduced. The Pro-SeriesTM line is backed by Continental's five-year/three-year limited parts warranty and a nationwide distribution and parts network.
