Drying the outside and inside simultaneously

ProLine FC 20 uses a state-of-the-art air circulation system to ensure even and thorough drying from the outside and inside of the gear simultaneously. The drying process uses a dual drying system. One system distributes hot air through the six unique hangers into the suits, and another circulates hot air within the cabinet to dry the garments from the out- side, resulting in an efficient, energy-saving drying process.

Evacuating moisture and humidity

The drying process involves removing moisture and humidity from the protective gear, and the dual drying system inside the cabinet play a crucial role in this process. As the air circulates through the cabinet, it passes over heating elements that warm the air, increasing its ability to hold moisture. The warm, dry air then circulates around and inside the protective gear, absorbing any moisture present and carrying it out of the cabinet. The two systems work in tandem to ensure that the air inside the cabinet circulates evenly, reaching all areas of the protective equipment. This ensures that the drying process is thorough and effective, while also minimizing the risk of damage to the items being dried.


Drying without Mechanical Action

ProLine FC 20 dries without mechanical action which allows for gentle drying without friction. This increases the lifespan of the protective equipment while also reducing the energy consumption.

The Proline FC20 was designed to dry protective gear using heat and air, by relying on the principles of circulation and evaporation. This makes the cabinet a gentler option for protective gear, as there is no risk for the protective gear to get snagged or damaged in the drying process. By using heat and air circulation, it provides a more controlled and consistent drying environment, which can be especially beneficial for the costly specialists protective gear or large bulky gear that cannot be placed in a conventional dryer.

We have compared wear caused by washing and drying without mechanical action with wear caused by washing and drying with mechanical action for our own machines. Our test shows that the textiles that were dried with mechanical action had a 64% more wear and tear compared to the textiles that were dried without mechanical action.



The drying cabinet ProLine FC 20 is built for tackling heavy loads of protective gear. With its large capacity and durable construction, it has the stability required to handle high loads for an extended period. ProLine FC 20 has been rigorously tested to ensure a 20+ year life expectancy with continuous use and very little upkeep needed.


A User-friendly Construction

The FC 20 Drying Cabinet has a user-friendly display with clear symbols and a simple interface. This superior drying cabinet has three automated programs and one time-controlled drying program. Three automated programs are for drying protective gear, while the other is for garments such as station clothes.
