More about EcoFlexTM Semi-Permanent Wash Pads
Semi-Permanent Wash Pads are a sealed, watertight, wash bay bunds that replaces the need for traditional concrete wash pads and associated excavation works.
A traditional concrete wash pad is more expensive and not always possible to install – where the land is leasehold, for example. The EcoFlexTM can be fitted in less than an hour.
Water is captured using a 150mm kerbed bund which can be discharged to foul or pumped to a water reclaim system.
Typical installation periods are several months or even years of use.
Practical and easily relocated
The EcoFlexTM semi-permanent wash pad can easily be relocated and moved if required with no dilapidation works, backfilling of holes or writing off the asset
Often site work is not practical or possible, for example when working against a train line, a multi-storey car park or simply where civil works are not practical or in fact permitted. The EcoFlexTM is a solution to this problem and can be installed on an existing reasonably level concrete or tarmac site.
The EcoFlexTM water-tight floor has been further developed by Morclean alongside our surface mounted wash pad in response to market demand, and where an inflatable temporary solution is not the most effective method.
When car, van or HGV washing or a vehicle washing business, or a company which produces wastewater in one way or another; it has to be contained and possibly recycled or removed.
Building a permanent facility often requiring substantial investments and is not always an economical solution. The EcoFlexTM semi-permanent wash mat with fixed kerbs offers an economic alternative, being semi-portable and easy to install within hours of delivery.
In addition, the EcoFlexTM wash mat can be supplied to meet your specifications in terms of dimensions, design, etc.
Unlike a traditional concrete structure, which can take weeks to construct, the wash pad water capture system is installed quickly and with minimal disturbance to the ground.
The wash pad is supplied with a drain to one end of the pad as standard or can be supplied as a complete watertight retaining bund.
