The foam berm is 4" high and the mat contains water while you are washing the vehicle. You can easily drive over the berm to go onto and to get off of the mat. The EPA is becoming stricter regarding car wash water runoff. Detail King has made it easy and affordable for mobile operators to contain their car wash water. Besides offering 100% biodegradable and environmentally products our car wash mats will help assure that you are being EPA compliant.
Approximately 75% of the wash water ends up in the mat from the vehicle that is being washed, the remainder evaporates while you are drying vehicle. You must remove the water from the mat before folding it up and going to your next detail job or car wash. You can remove the water with either a pump or vacuum system and contain it in a holding tank until you can properly dispose of it. Detail King offers several options for water reclamation. Be sure you take a look at our Vacu Berm, Big Dog Water Reclamation System and our Mr. Green Waste Water Tank System within this department. Being EPA compliant is very important especially if you plan to operate your mobile detailing business close to large bodies of water.
This unit costs considerably more than the above bracket style unit but saves set-up and break down time. Don't be fooled less expensive vinyl models that may not hold-up even under normal usage.
