3 Ways to Install an Automated Laundry System in Your House

Whether you are planning a new renovation or have already renovated, when you want to buy an automated laundry system, it is useful to have a better understanding of the installation process of the system and have knowledge about how it's connected to your power source. 


Our simplified guide with easy-to-understand description is perfect for those new to home renovations who find technical jargon overwhelming. We've broken down 3 installation methods and answered common questions about power source requirements to aid your understanding. 

Concrete Ceiling Installation 

The classic installation for an automated laundry system is always the safe bet! As these laundry systems are designed to only take up ceiling space, it makes an ideal space-saving solution for small homes. If you're living in a compact home, an automated laundry system with a classic layout can be a game-changer. For those with concrete ceilings, find the ideal location and we'll install it for you.

False Ceiling Installation 

False ceilings have numerous benefits, from hiding wires to enhancing the ambiance with concealed cove lights. However, mounting appliances on a false ceiling can be a cause of concern for some due to the potential additional cost. Despite this, the advantages of a false ceiling, such as a sleek appearance and improved lighting, can make it a worthwhile investment for your home.


However additional costs won’t be a worry with us, as we can install a CAPTAIN automated laundry system on your false ceiling without any extra cost! Our expert team can ensure the system is securely fastened by adding stainless steel rod reinforcements that connect to the concrete slab above. This reinforcement method guarantees the system will be safe to use and fully functional, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a space-saving and efficient automated laundry system without any added concerns.


But please take note of something before installation. If there is a concrete ceiling above your false ceiling, and there are no obstructions such as pipes blocking the mounting points, then we can install a CAPTAIN automated laundry system without any issues. The distance between the false ceiling and the concrete ceiling must be no more than 1.2 meters for the installation to work efficiently. With these conditions met, our expert team can easily mount the system, allowing you to enjoy a space-saving and hassle-free laundry experience.

Mounting on Walls

If your ceiling is too high up or not made of concrete, installing an automated laundry system against the walls can be a great alternative. This is particularly popular for those with trellis roofs, as L-bracket installations can be easily attached to the walls. The good news is that we have a retractable laundry system mounted on the wall for you to choose. Our expert team can install the system securely, giving you an efficient laundry solution that suits your home's unique needs. 

Power Source Requirements 

Don't worry about the power requirements for your CAPTAIN automated laundry system, as all models only require a minimum of 6 Ampere to function. During installation, we can easily tap power from an existing lighting point to ensure your system runs smoothly.

Moreover, it's worth noting that our system prices include installation, delivery, connection to your power source and basic warranty coverage. So you can enjoy the convenience of a new automated laundry system without any hidden costs or additional fees!


However, if you need further confirmation, we highly recommend booking our free on site measurement for such installations to ensure the system fits in your preferred space.
