Friction Car Wash Equipment

There are two different types of Friction Car Wash Equipment we can provide.


Both have their own unique advantages and combine the latest technology to ensure your equipment provides your valuable customers with the best possible wash function for their vehicle.


The ProTouch ICON - unlike any other soft-touch gantry.



The PDQ ProTouch Series just became a more formidable force in the friction in-bay automatic car wash industry. With the introduction of the ProTouch ICON, PDQ is now capable of offering another option to meet all of your soft-touch in-bay automatic needs. The ProTouch ICON is a new three-brush gantry-style system that offers superior aesthetics, a larger wash envelope, next generation brush control precision, amazing illumination packages and revenue generating features that are synonymous with all PDQ car wash equipment.

The ProTouch ICON was engineered to deliver incredible cleaning results using several “industry first” innovations that are unsurpassed by any other gantry-style rollover on the market today. ProTouch ICON – the next generation in vehicle cleaning systems – by PDQ Manufacturing, Inc.


The ProTouch Tandem - an innovative design that takes friction cleaning to a new level.



PDQ has pioneered a new industry defining vehicle cleaning method with the ProTouch® Tandem. This superior wash system incorporates both touch-free and friction, giving operators who prefer the "clean" produced by friction systems a new choice. The ProTouch Tandem's full-body detergent coverage and simplified two brush engineering provides consistent cleaning performance with minimal brush contact. On average, the ProTouch Tandemtouches the vehicle up to 70% less than five brush car wash systems on the market.

With the widest top brush coverage in the industry, the foam brushes are torque sensitive to monitor the contour of the vehicle and provide low-force cleaning power. The side-profiling, high-pressure wash arms effectively remove stubborn soil from the vehicle's surface. Plus, the three stage wheel cleaning system includes chemical application, rotating soft rim scrubbers and high pressure wheel blasters.
