Innovations in gantry car washes

Turning car washing into a spectacle: FoamSensation and StarTrack.

Augsburg, June 2016 – WashTec is set to present two real visual highlights at the UNITI expo 2016 in Stuttgart in the form of FoamSensation and StarTrack: the full-bodied foam curtain and the illuminated guide tracks promise a sensational car wash experience.

Foam curtain raised for FoamSensation.

The presentation of FoamSensation will be the eye-catcher at WashTec's stand. The inimitable principle: FoamSensation covers the vehicle with a closed, colour-illuminated foam curtain – turning the pre-wash into a colourful highlight.

The mode of action of FoamSensation is as simple as it is spectacular. The foam flows down on to the vehicle as closed curtain – in gantry car washes from the FlexStream roof dryer; in conveyor tunnel systems the unit is fastened to the entrance gantry or integrated in a separate arch. The foam curtain is lit up from behind in colour by LED lamps that enable numerous colour settings.

Apart from the visual experience, FoamSensation also offers an outstanding washing result: the foam is coated over the complete car during automatic washing in conveyor tunnel and gantry systems. FoamSensation generates perfect foam within a few seconds even after longer breaks.

For customers this means a car wash they have never seen before. With FoamSensation, the operators of car washes can raise the attractiveness of their businesses immensely and turn them into customer magnets. And that in turn justifies higher average prices.

StarTrack – the illuminated guide rails.

The illuminated StarTrack guide rails help car wash operators guide their customers into their car washes. Various illumination patterns and colours direct the customer safely and surely through the complete washing process. They are high-visibility aids to help safe entry and positioning. And thanks to high-quality stainless steel rails with inclined cross-section, they simultaneously serve as effective rim protection. At the same time, the LED lights attract attention and generate a sensational light ambience during the washing process.

StarTrack will help operators of car washes achieve a real competitive edge: they not only guide their customers, but also increase the attractiveness of their business. Combined with FoamSensation, this is bound to turn car washing into a spectacular experience.
