Like any car wash facility, their key objectives were to provide the best quality wash, highest efficiency and while running a low maintenance facility. To assist with the key objectives for the facility, some of the areas which we could assist with were to reduce overspray, noise, dripping water and wind-tunneling which would blow the water away from the car being washed, onto neighboring buildings.

The Remax team were consulted to create a solution where the car wash facility could be contained, yet easily accessed by car wash customers. The solution needed to be water tight and be able to cope with windy weather and general harsh outdoor elements with little maintenance and downtime to provide a frictionless solution for the Car Wash owner. It was imperative that the solution offered not only enclosed the spray from the wash facility when a vehicle is being washed but also help to minimise the the noise of the car wash especially useful during very windy days to ensure that the area behind the car wash is not affected by noise or soap-suds.

The Remax team attended site for a free no-obligation consultation, had a look at the facility and discussed how the site currently operates, their challenges and the current issues and suggested a solution to contain the car wash with a Movidor Rapid Door. The Rapid Door solution provided some new innovations in the form of a car wash drip tray curtain design, stainless steel control cabinet installed in the car wash control room – a very smart and effective solution for Carwash doorway control.

The Fast Action Doors onsite where manufactured bespoke to the doorways on site and measured 2400H x 3800W to allow for easy access in and out of site 24/7.

The Movidor Rapid Door is an innovative, low maintenance solution which has been tested and run in a variety of industries around Australia for over 20 years with a comprehensive and hands-on project delivery and servicing team behind it.

The Movidor Rapid Door was installed at the exit to the LaserWash, Touch Free, car wash unit, minimising overspray with automated opening and closing, and reducing downtime and maintenance to the car wash facility, with seamless installation and servicing options.

Remax High Speed Doors automatically close when a vehicle enters the car wash and opens swiftly after the vehicle has passed through – which also helps to prevent unwanted pests / birds / dust and wind from entering the car wash while in use. As an exterior door, the Remax HS35 Movidor range provides flexibility for unplanned knocks by vehicles which in turn reduces call out fees to realign the curtain into the guides – see our video here on Remax Self-Repair functionality.
