Pet Grooming Vans
Our conversions are like nothing else in the industry.
The revolutionary thermal capabilities combined with super strength light weight properties are the result of over 29yrs of design and thousands of pounds invested into product research to create a lining like no other. With Competitors continually trying to imitate our products, often promoting a "Wet Lay Fibre glass" lining with similar merits to our conversions, there are no similarites. A Wet Pets Conversion stands in a class of it's own.
The History of our lining:
The most important factor in any mobile grooming van, parlour and trailer is the insulated, waterproof lining of the structure. In 1986 Wet Pets current Managing Director identified the constant problems arising from the outdated Wet Lay Fibre Glass tehniques used by our competitors. Using an Engineering background and investing heavily into research, he succeeded in designing a revolutionary structually insulated panel, which we use today in our Wet Pets conversions.
So what is the Wet lay Fibreglass Technique some of our competitors use?
With Wet Lay fibreglass techniques, heavy timber frames are built into the vehicle where plywood is attached, and then Rock Wool or foam is then added for insulation. Often this falls to the base during construction due to gravity, leaving areas un-insulated. Fibreglass matting is then added and painted on over the top.This method is the quickest, but also the cheapest way of insulating a vehicle using fibreglass. Not only are these linings extremely heavy due to the wood and liquids utilised costing you money in fuel, but also the insulation is often unequal and a texture is left by the fibre glass strands where bacteria can collect. Tiny "Pin Holes" frequently form where water and bacteria get through the lining into the cavity behind. The Timber frame and plywood behind the fibreglass also starts to rot and degrade over time especially with any moisture allowed in through Pin Holes.
Why our Insulated Panels are different, and their Advantages.
Our Panels are the only one of their kind where 100% equal insulation can be guaranteed in a completely water proof interior. They have undergone numerous independant tests by authorities where it has outshone it's rivals. Our Conversion was recently tested in a Cambridge test centre where it was placed in a sealed chamber down to minus 25 Degrees, where it passed effortlessly. The conversion is also the only VCA Government Type Approved Grooming Lining in the UK and is fully iso9001 Quality Certified. This is why our linings have earnt their title as Industry Leaders.
The panels structural integrity allow them to be self supportive, so no internal wooden frames are needed - in fact they are so structurally stable we also make multi storey buildings out of them! They are 100% waterproof and have a bright white gloss finish with zero texture for easy cleaning. They are incredibly light weight, which translates directly into £££ of savings on fuel, and unlike wet lay fibreglass, they can be fully removed at the end of the vehicles life (with no damage to the existing van) and re-fitted into your new van. So basically - you can take your Lining with you!
The strengh is produced by our rigid build continuously bonded, fully inter-locking joints providing high impact strength with no seams or fixings and each panel can be made up to 10m. All panels are made onsite allowing us optimum quality control from start to finish. Each conversion is so waterproof you could fill the whole loadspace up with water like a bath and there would be zero possibility that moisture can ever get behind the lining.
Benefits of mobile pet grooming vans over traditional salon style grooming.
- With our mobile grooming vans, you go to your client's location. This avoids all the hassle of them having to transport their pet into the car, bring it across to the salon and then repeat on the way home. Their car stays clean, their pets stay less stressed and it minimises your client’s to-do list.
- Clients love knowing their pet is just out the front of their house being pampered, their dog has lessened anxiety as it knows its home and this increases the overall quality of the groom.
- Because you pay your sole attention to one dog at a time, it reduces the noise, smell and overall levels of discomfort that salon grooming brings.
- Kennels are a thing of the past, there are no kennel styled holding areas that are associated with salon grooming. This decreases pet anxiety and increases the quality of the groom.
- By having the same groomer each time your pet will take comfort in the familiarity of the groomer and bemore relaxed, again this increases the quality and consistency of the grooms.
- One of the biggest benefits of mobile grooming is how fast it is. Averagely (depending on dog breed) grooms take between 1-2 hours. This is ideal for rescue pets, anxious pets or senior pets.
- By having the state of the art equipment in pet grooming, the high velocity dryer gets drying jobs done quickly. This can also help de-shed a dog, increasing health benefits.
- Having access to our spray-head hydro shower gives you the capability to stimulate skin by soft spray massaging water release. This not only gives you the most effective wash but it also provides a therapeutic water massage for the dog. Increasing blood circulation, relieving tired muscles and has been found to benefit senior dogs where arthritis is present. The soft but powerful spray head uses new technology to penetrate short, long and thick coats making sure that dry dead skin cells, embedded flea eggs and other nuisances are removed.
- By giving your entire attention to each individual dog groom, you can really focus on specific niches of grooming. The troubles and stress of skin conditions, flea prevention and specialist cuts are a thing of the past. Ensuring for an effective long lasting wash in terms of odour and cleanliness, grooming has never been so easy.
