How do you wash your clothes when you’re homeless?

In 2014, this simple question inspired two young men to begin a mobile washing service for people experiencing homelessness around the Brisbane city area. Today they provide regular laundry and shower services in 22 locations nationally and Tecpro Australia are very proud to support their work.

Orange Sky Case Study 1024x683 How do you wash your clothes when you’re homeless?

Orange Sky run their laundry and shower services out of vans. Each van requires 2 hose reels and that’s where Tecpro Australia helps.

We are supporting Orange Sky by providing cost price hose reels for their vans. Our hose reels make it easier and faster for the Orange Sky volunteers to set up and pack up the mobile service at each location. The vans have been fitted with 2 stainless steel hose reels designed to tolerate water temperatures up to 90°C and a maximum pressure of 200 bar.

Orange Sky co-founder Nic Marchesi said:

We have water tanks on board each of our vans, but we also have the option to plug into water at most of our shifts. This allows us provide more washing and showers for our friends on the street.

Tecpro’s hose reels help our volunteers operate more efficiently when setting up and packing down and we’re very grateful for their support.”
