Softwash equipment: Softwashing van – Part 3 – waterproofing (video)

January 19, 2021

Benz Softwash van build ep3 - waterproofing

In this third video in our "Building a Softwashing Van" series, Ben waterproofs the van floor.

To do this he has to complete some preparatory tasks that must be done first to ensure there are no leaks further down the line.

To achieve a completely waterproof van floor he seals it with epoxy resin, glassfibre cloth and Protectakote rubberised non-slip paint.

"Just watched the van floor waterproofing. Super work done by Ben with every detail covered down to sealing the bolt holes underneath the van. Well done, and great service." Chris Cremin

In the next video the van begins to come together as he begins the nitty gritty work of installing the soft wash equipment.

Huge thanks to all our customers for your loyalty in making Benz your softwash product supplier of choice. We appreciate the fact that so many of our trade customers come back to us week after week, month after month, year after year. 

And by way of practical appreciation, we've decided to no longer pro-actively seek domestic customers for our products and will not knowingly sell products to the customers of our trade customers, i.e. those who want to play around with d.i.y.

The good news is that there are ZERO customs duties to pay on Benz products.

Brexit has brought about many changes and challenges to business supply chains. And there's a lot of fear floating about regarding the excess taxes being levied on customers when ordering from EU-based companies.

So we want to reassure all our customers that we are able to continue supplying both our Irish and UK customers - with no additional duty, customs costs, or delays.
