If so from what manufacture and do they work well ?

Tom Hoffman has around 30 washes in Eastern and Central New York State. He has a lot of AVW equipment and always made some custom components for his washes, but recently started a company that also manufactures various components and they are now available for other operators.
The company is.


you can probably find this component or something like it on this site.

Great guy to talk to and is very knowledgeable.

Disclaimer: I do not own any of his equipment or work in any capacity for him or his companies, but only know him through visiting washes, as we are located in the same state.

Is it safe to have the high-rpm rotational potion without a guard on it?

I dide a simple, but effective, one on my auto. Just added a small manifold to the gantry pointing forward.. No moving parts and cost less than $150.

I see what you are saying. Although this is not a friction component, it exists in a friction tunnel and friction tunnels tend to have a lot of moving parts that are potentially dangerous. Not saying that hazards should not be mitigated, they certainly should.

I don’t own this particular piece of equipment, but top brushes and counterweights when lowered, wrap arounds swinging closed, wheel brushes at floor level retracting and extending. It is all dangerous for a person to be around. That is where safety and training and lockout procedures are so important in the environment.

Good point though waxman. I’m sure a custom cover/guard could be retrofitted onto it.
