Wilcomatic is introducing a wider-passage vehicle washing machine to accommodate commercial vans and larger 4x4s.

The industry standard passage measures 2.4m but, with an additional 0.3m and heights up to 3.1m, the new Christ Centus can cater for commercial vehicles, such as the VW Transporter and Mercedes Sprinter, as well as larger 4x4s, such as the BMW X5 and Audi Q7.

Marc Ford, senior business development manager at Wilcomatic, said: "This wider passage version has about a 10% price premium over the standard unit, while maintaining the quality of wash associated with all Christ products. "This has been endorsed through an audit from VDA last year to confirm that vehicles cannot be damaged by the wash systems we supply. This wider passage gives further comfort to the customer knowing there is plenty of room in the wash facility." The wider wash will fit in most existing bays and the original Christ Centus is still available for standard cars.
