One of PDQ’s most recognizable innovations is the unparalleled Virtual Treadle. This electronic vehicle-sensing technology eliminates drive-on floor-mounted mechanisms, creating a wide open and inviting bay for your customers. Ultrasonic sensors accurately measure the vehicle’s width, and bridge sensors signal the driver to stop or back up by activating easy to understand audible LED signs. The wash system is then activated with an electronic safety envelope surrounding the entire vehicle, allowing the LaserWash 360 Plus to maintain an optimum cleaning distance whether the vehicle is parked to one side or angled in the wash bay.
Smart 360 Arch Control
The ultra-sophisticated LaserWash 360 Plus Arch Control System drives quicker throughput and amazes customers with its precise movements throughout the entire wash process. The Automatic Obstacle Guidance System uses advanced technology to locate obstacles such as trailer hitches, side mirrors and other obstacles that may restrict the wash arch from properly traveling around the perimeter of the vehicle. The arch will move away from the obstacle, record the position of the obstacle to avoid it on subsequent passes and continue washing the vehicle. If the wash arch cannot avoid an obstacle it will attempt to fully retract, rinse off any solution using the overhead rinse arch and prompt the customer to exit the bay. After the vehicle has exited and the bay is clear, the machine will automatically reset in preparation for the next vehicle. PDQ’s exclusively designed spray arch focus’ on addressing the body style changes of today’s more modern vehicles. A longer top manifold will clean wider vehicles, while a new side arch improves focus on harder to reach areas, such as under spoilers off the rear windows. In addition to the performance benefits, this new spray arch has a more modern appearance that your customers will love.
Redesigned Pump Station
The redesigned HP Pump Station offers added durability along with an increase in ease of serviceability. The all stainless steel frame houses a dedicated fluid manifold designed to reduce fitting connections and reduce leak points. The chemical injection manifold has also been positioned for easy service access as well as increased durability.
Triple Colour Foam System

Ultimate Cover Package
The LaserWash 360 Plus ultimate cover package is both attractive and functional. The standard ultimate cover package offers a complete state-of-the-art look that is sure to impress your customers. In addition to its looks, the cover package reduces machine exposure to the harsh wash bay environment. Underneath the covers, a separate enclosure for air valves has been added to the bridge, while all fluid valves have been removed, increasing overall reliability and serviceability.
Smart 360 Drying System
PDQ’s LaserWash360 Plus integrated dryer option can be coupled with the unique FlashDry High-Volume Spot Free Rinse service. FlashDry requires no additional time for a basic dry by completing the rinse and dry cycles in a single, simultaneous operation. Developed on the principal that it is easier to remove water that is already in motion, FlashDry technology simultaneously rinses and removes more than 80% of the water in a single 10-second pass. Additional dryer options
include a MaxAir Stand-Alone Dryer, or the ability to use the integrated dryer as a drive-through service as the customer exits the wash bay. These options allow greater package differentiation, giving operators the ability to up-sell customers for increased revenue and profitability.
SwingAir Synchronized Motion Drying System

The enhanced SwingAir oscillating feature improves dryer performance while still using less energy than most conventional dryers.

Non-Corrosive Materials Used
All stainless steel and aluminum is used for excellent resistance to water and chemical corrosion and for its durability and lightweight properties. The shape of the anodized extruded aluminum rails in the bridges and trolley allows for an enclosed roller design, resulting in extremely low roller resistance and reduced power requirements…LESS power consumed = MORE $$ saved!!!
The LaserWash 360 Plus mounting system provides the flexibility to fit into a wide variety of wash-bay configurations. The LaserWash 360 Plus can be installed as a Free-Standing Frame or a Wall-Mounted machine. The Wall-Mount System offers an open-bay feeling unlike any other machine in the industry, while the Free-Standing Frame can be used where the walls may not be structurally sufficient. The main support rails can be adjusted during installation to accommodate various wash bay lengths. In addition, the Precision Loading System allows longer vehicles to fit comfortably into shorter wash bays, essentially making your wash bay one foot longer.
Driver or passenger side-mounted factory preloaded energy chain for easy and low cost installation
Bridge and trolley movements are smooth and effortless using internally mounted dual-axis rollers. The hanging design allows self-centering and improves roller life by protecting the rollers from harsh wash environment
