About EKV Commercial Vehicle Washing Centre
EKV is a commercial vehicle washing centre in Northern Denmark. EKV delivers an integrated daily service for the haulage sector, and provides exterior washing and internal cleaning services for trucks and commercial vans.
Transport managers need their vehicles to be clean so as to protect the brand image shown on the side of their trucks, while commercial drivers have a sense of pride for the vehicle they are driving and living in for most of the week.
EKV was in search of a cleaning solution that would ensure that the vehicles could be cleaned effectively and promptly, deliver high levels of internal hygiene, and maintain excellent working conditions for its employees. In particular, EKV was seeking a supplier of suitable durable products that would ensure effective exterior cleaning without damaging paintwork, livery, signage or other coatings.
EKV chose Vikan's transport range of cost-effective, durable and easy-to-store products, designed specifically for the heavy demands of the commercial sector and for use on vehicles of all sizes.
The solution includes solid polypropylene stocks with nylon filaments that have protective rubber edges that prevent any damage to paintwork, and water-fed wash brushes with telescopic handles and a choice of adjustable brush heads for hard to reach areas. Stubborn dirt from wheel rims is removed safely and effectively with the rim brush, while Vikan's stiff brushes and microfibre-based cloths remove interior dust and grime from around the controls and in the living area.
EKV also selected Vikan for its customer-oriented approach to product development. Working closely with EKV, Vikan has created a specifically angled high/low brush (Item no. 526852) that is designed to be in constant contact with surfaces during washing.
