Our Mark II Portable Wash Bays are a unique modular system that lets you expand your wash bay for whatever purpose or size. The modules come in two sizes; small, 3.25m wide x 2.4m deep and large, 6.5m wide x 2.4m deep. By connecting multiple decks, you can increase the depth of the wash bay to your requirements. Each module adds an extra 2.4 metres while maintaining its 3.25 m or 6.5 m width.
In some cases, the modules of portable wash bays can be adjusted to fit site constraints. By shifting the orientation, the long sides can become the depth and access to the bay is made from its 2.4m edge. With this flexibility, you can connect and orient your wash bays in whatever way best suits each specific situation.

As debris may accumulate over time, we've crafted our mobile wash bays with 45° angled pipes beneath the decks instead of 90°. This allows for easy clean-out and unclogging of any obstructions that arise.
The gutter channel has been specifically crafted to accommodate a standard channel spade, making removing any blockages that may form easy. All you have to do is lift off the gutter grate and clear out the clogged-up area.
Our portable wash bays have been utilised for a range of purposes across multiple clients, such as:
