Drying in the wash bay with Airffect
Most car washes require customers to either dry the car by hand or drive off with a wet vehicle. According to Airffect, an in-vehicle dryer can increase customer numbers and turnover. The hand dryer blows droplets out of the nooks and crannies of every vehicle at 450 km/h.
The Airffect high pressure dryer is suitable for all types of vehicles and can also be used on rims. The effect of drying with high air pressure ensures a dry result and is also simply fun to do. With the device, vehicle drying also becomes a source of income at the wash bay. The drying areas are occupied for a shorter period of time, since self-drying with high pressure is faster than drying manually with a drying cloth. As the Airffect self-service dryer only works with air pressure and there is no contact with the vehicle surface, it is paint friendly and scratch free. Customers notice this innovative solution quickly and Airffect locations benefit from good word-of-mouth advertising, says the supplier. In competition with other carwashes, the dryer can be a unique selling point.
As an Airffect self-service dryer is convenient, fast and easy to use, new customer groups are attracted to the wash bay. Motorcyclists in particular like to use this drying method as it takes a lot of effort to achieve a dry result after washing. Many bottlenecks and corners on a motorbike cannot be reached by customers using a conventional drying cloth.
The investment in drying for self-wash is low for the carwash operator. Andreas Pasching’s Austrian company offers the Airffect dryer with a purchase or lease option. Customers need about four minutes to dry a mid-range vehicle.
