CarWash Safety 101 blog: Anti-collision equipment

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Mike Benmosche offers a closer look at the advantages of installing anti-collision equipment for tunnel carwashes.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — In a recent CarWash Safety 101 with Mike Benmosche blog post, McNeil & Co. National Carwash Program Specialist Mike Benmosche discusses how anti-collision equipment is designed to reduce the chance of collision at the exits of tunnel washes.

“As most of you may know, this equipment is designed to mitigate the chances of collisions at the exit of the tunnel. There are several types of machinery available to accomplish this,” says Benmosche in the blog post. “Ultimately, the goal is to have a system that will sense when a collision is imminent and automatically shut down the conveyor.”

In the blog post, Benmosche offers insight into four advantages of anti-collision equipment, which include:

  • Accident prevention
  • Meeting OSHA requirements
  • Reduced loss of income
  • Tunnel exit safety.

“Carwashes can contact the vendors they work with for their POS systems to talk about adding anti-collision equipment to their tunnels. Owners and operators should discuss some of the options for safety … and find out if this equipment is right for their operations,” explains Benmosche in the blog post. “Do it today, and start saving money by preventing property damage and potential personal injury.”

Navigating water conservation

Professional carwashes are facing increased pressure on water conservation from outside forces.

As the carwash industry experiences explosive growth, the nation’s focus on the scarcity of natural resources is intensifying. When it comes to water conservation, this favors the professional carwash industry, which benefits from innovative water-saving equipment and systems.

Perspective on water usage

For example, those who wash their cars at home with a typical garden hose use 40 gallons to 140 gallons of fresh water (based on water running at 10 gallons per minute (GPM) and depending on the use of a spray nozzle or not). In comparison, professional carwashes with sophisticated and well-maintained water treatment, reclamation and delivery systems will use on average 30 gallons of fresh water, as found in the 2018 ICA Water Use Report. Plus, with the use of a reclaim system, a professional carwash operation will recycle the majority of the water applied and will not release any chemical pollutants into the stormwater system, as seen in the graphic below.
