Quarries and mining sites are often situated in green belts, national parks, areas of national beauty, and near rural villages.
To meet regulatory requirements, minimise impact on the local environment, prevent complaints from local residents, and mitigate the risk of health and safety incidents, a wheel wash is often the best way to ensure aggregates, dirt and minerals from your quarry are not deposited onto local roads.
However, not all wheel wash systems are created equal. The wrong wheel wash system placed on your site results in poor performance, expensive repairs and breakdowns.
A very different wheel washing solution is required when you have 60 vehicles to clean versus 600. Clay sites require a different wheel wash to sand quarries or mineral mines.
Our team take the time to build a solution around you. We will assess the site and your needs to provide you with a wheel wash system that works. And as a UK manufacturer with 90% of our suppliers located within a 50-mile radius, we design an entirely bespoke solution around your needs. And if you only need a solution for a short period of time? Well, you can either rent the wheel wash on a weekly basis or we will buy it back from you.
“We were very impressed with the service that Wheelwash provided throughout which includes the professionalism of the installation engineers on the day, they were very polite, helpful & dedicated to solving any issues or problems caused whilst fitting the new wash system in place.
