We Care About Your Business
Thain Commercial are Approved Partners with industry leaders Miele Professional and Electrolux Professional and have supported the care sector now, for over 25 years. As a result of working closely with the care sector and partnering with world renowned brands like Miele and Electrolux, we are able to marry our product knowledge up with the needs of our clients in the sector to ensure that all guidelines as laid down by the government are adhered to.
WRAS Approved Machines
When installing a product which will carry or receive water from the public mains water supply in the UK, it is a criminal offence if it does not comply with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations or Scottish Byelaws. These require that a water fitting should not cause waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of the water supply and must be ‘of an appropriate quality and standard’.
WRAS Approval is the best way to demonstrate compliance, as it is granted directly by representatives of the water suppliers and is therefore accepted by every water supplier in the UK. There are different categories of WRAS approval depending on the business type. For Care Homes all machines have to comply with WRAS category 5, due to the nature of the materials being washed.
Achieve Hygienically Clean Crockery & Cutlery
To reduce the potential of infections spreading in your high-risk environment we can offer our clients dishwashers that ensure hygienically clean dishes by utilising fresh water at every wash phase as well as high temperatures to keep infections at bay.
New Department of Health Guidelines (CfPP 01-04)
Working with our clients in the care sector, we understand how important hygiene is. When it comes to hygienic linen, it's important to be up-to-date with the latest Department of Health guidelines called 'Choice Framework for local Policy and Procedures (CFPP) 01-04’.
The guidelines cover all aspects of linen processing from equipment validation to management and procurement. All the washing machines and tumble dryers that we sell to our clients in the care sector comply with the new guidelines and we help ensure the service-users remain safe and in no threat from infection or contamination. More importantly, they enable processes to be streamlined, so that staff can spend less time doing laundry and more time providing first-class care to those who need it most.
I was quite nervous about replacing our laundry equipment, having felt the charity had been trapped into paying too much in the last contract with a large-scale national supplier. Thain Commercial was recommended to us and we are delighted that we found them. Dealing with Scott has been a breath of fresh air. We appreciate the honesty and quality of advice and service received from him. Our new washing machines and tumble dryers are fantastic and the after-sales service has also been to a very high standard. I am happy to recommend Thain Commercial to anyone looking to purchase laundry equipment.
