Pit Start Plus
Car Wash Start Systems

The best unit for activating self-service washing bays. Specifically designed for self-service washing bays, it manages up to 7 wash programs through a single payment unit. It is particularly suitable for modernising existing high-pressure systems which still employ electro-mechanical control systems. Solid and resistant, it guarantees excellent protection against dust, water jets and nebulised chemical products. Pit Start Plus is available in 2 different versions for easy installation on any type of system. The graphics label can be customised to increase the visibility of the company logo.
