EU Solvent Emissions Directive
The bodyshop was complete in October 2005 and is one of the most advanced repair centres in the UK, with state-of-the-art equipment at the core of the business, meeting the new European ‘Solvent Emissions Directive’ (SED) which were implemented in 2007.

Dalby Genesis Spray Booth & OvenTo comply with these new regulations, the repair centre is equipped with two new generation Dalby ‘Genesis’ Spray Booth/Oven units, which incorporate full down draught air movement utilising a fully filtered air input plenum. Air is extracted by large underfloor extraction pits incorporating FC Series centrifugal fans, which draw foreign air particles and impurities away from the vehicle.

To compliment the new spray booth, an advanced paint mixing system using paint by Sikkens has also been installed.

Excellence in collision
To ensure your vehicle receives the best of care in the event of a collision, we have installed high tech jigs with computerised measuring systems from Car-o-liner, the collision repair specialists.

car-o-liner-collisionThe Mark 6TM is a mobile bench system with the added convenience of drive-on mounting. It’s designed around the idea that the more flexible a collision repair system is, the more productive it will be.

Used in conjunction with the MK6 is the Car-O-Tronic Vision computerised measuring system. It’s the fastest, most accurate and easiest to use computerized measuring system on the market today! It guides the entire repair process and performs automatic centering, measuring and documentation. It is photobased, integrated with the world’s largest vehicle database and fully compatible with any alignment system.

In addition to the Mk6 and Car-O-Tronic Vision alignment equipment, we have also invested in the SPEED, a collision repair system which after diagnosis, allows cars with superficial damage to be transferred to the SPEED lift and the SPEED can literally reverse impacts in the same way they happened.
