ISTOBAL USA will present the new FLEX5 Extended Height rollover in booth 2250W at the NADA SHOW in Las Vegas March 11-13. With a wash height of 9.5 feet, the equipment was built to maximize a facility’s wash range and to offer an automatic wash for vehicles too large for standard in-bay automatic and tunnel wash equipment.
ISTOBAL’s North America director of sales, Ian Burton, stated that most dealers are forced to wash these vehicles by hand, resulting in increased time and expense. In addition to standard cars, SUVs, and trucks, the equipment will also wash high-roof cargo vans, raised trucks, and other extended height vehicles, Burton pointed out.
With a wash height of 9.5 feet, soft-touch and touchless all-in-one combination units offer a complete car wash, lava, tire shine, and premium waxes. Other optional features include multiple dryer styles, multiple high-pressure options, tricolor foam, positioning by voice, lighted guide rails, and more.
Just like the standard ISTOBAL FLEX5, the Extended Height machine can transform from three to five 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 three or five brushes, touch free, or a combination of both), and as a touchless rollover.
