Willard Textile Washing Tables are used typically as support and drainage platforms, with adjustable tilt, for washing and rinsing treatments for large format textiles such as wall hangings, banners, apparel etc. They may also be used for wallpaper and other large sheet materials.

The washing tables can be converted easily to washing tanks by mounting the detachable sides supplied with the unit. Either configuration, as washing table or washing tank, is exceedingly useful for containment and drainage when treating a number of smaller items in trays.
