¨ The FLEX5 Extended Height rollover is able to wash both standard and larger vehicles such as high-roof cargo vans and raised trucks, simplifying the wash process, saving time and costs.
¨ The Express On Rails increases the throughput of an in-bay automatic 1.5x combining the revenue enhancing features of a mini-tunnel with the reliability, efficiency, and wash performance of all ISTOBAL in-bay automatics.
¨ ISTOBAL USA had an excellent 1st quarter in 2022 with revenue surpassing quarter 1 of 2021 thanks in part to rising interest in these innovative car wash solutions.
April 26TH , 2022.- ISTOBAL USA will attend The Car Wash Show in Nashville (Tennessee) with the new FLEX5 Extended Height rollover and the Express On Rails, its state-of-the-art equipment that cost-effectively cleans a broad spectrum of vehicles without major investments to boost car wash profitability.
From May 9-11 ISTOBAL USA will present at booth 2415, the new FLEX5 Extended Height rollover. This machine was designed to maximize a facility’s wash range and to offer an automatic wash for vehicles too large for standard in-bay automatic equipment. The FLEX5 Extended Height rollover presents the same attributes as the standard FLEX5 in-bay automatic, - great versatility, flexibility, high washing speeds, chemical efficiency, and water savings.
With a wash height of 9 ½ feet, the FLEX5 Extended Height rollover can wash both standard height and taller vehicles including high-roof cargo vans, raised trucks and ambulances. The ability to provide an automatic wash to a wider range of vehicles drastically increases a car wash facilities’ potential market.
Just like the standard ISTOBAL FLEX5, the Extended Height machine can also transform from 3 or 5 brushes (or vice versa) and can be configured as a hybrid model (by adding high pressure to the machine), as a combo option (allowing customers to choose the wash they want: friction with 3 or 5 brushes, touch free or a combination of both) and as a touchless rollover.
ISTOBAL USA had an excellent 1st quarter in 2022 with revenue surpassing quarter 1 of 2021 thanks to rising interest in the Extended Height machine and other developments such as Express On Rails system. ISTOBAL's North American Director of Sales, Ian Burton, stated that “we have also experienced a dramatic increase in interest in the Extended Height machine after its premiere at The Car Wash Show in November 2021. People are beginning to see the benefit of having the ability to wash a larger range of vehicles”.
Express On Rails, an innovative car wash solution that can boost revenue with minimal investment
During The Car Wash Show, ISTOBAL USA will also present an innovative car wash solution that boosts revenue with minimal investment, the Express On Rails (EOR).
Aimed at car wash facilities, convenience stores, and other facilities looking to boost their sales with a smart investment, the ISTOBAL Express On Rails increases the throughput of an in-bay automatic 1.5x combining the revenue enhancing features of a mini-tunnel with the reliability, efficiency, and wash performance of all ISTOBAL in-bay automatics.
More economical to install than a mini-tunnel and operates without requiring on-site labor, the Express On Rails system can utilize any standard ISTOBAL rollover such as the FLEX5 or even the FLEX5 Extended Height.
ISTOBAL USA recommends to set-up the Express On Rails with the ISTOBAL FLEX5 rollover followed by free-standing ISTOBAL product arches that maximize traffic flow and enhance the wash experience, the ISTOBAL T’SHINER to add revenue and increase customer satisfaction, concluding with free standing dryers for unparalleled wash quality. A control panel is also recommended allowing operators to remotely monitor and manage their facilities’ operations.
