Permanent Wash Bays
Fixed wash bays that comply with all regulations
Permanent wash bays are an important tool for businesses to remain in compliance with local water authorities. They go beyond the functionalities of interceptors and oil separators, and provide all-encompassing, permanent solutions for washing vehicles and equipment.
Our permanent wash bays collect and isolate wash water effectively. And when combined with our storm water diversion systems (for unroofed wash bays), they'll help ensure authority compliance.
We'll custom-design a wash bay to your exact requirements. Cleanawaters wash bay construction means your bay will accommodate the size and weight of your equipment. And it means you may be able to open up new revenue streams from quarantine/AQIS wash down.
