New Portage Release, a De-Mountable Vehicle Mounted Window Cleaning System
Published: September 8, 2017
Ionic Systems are happy to announce the release of a very new king of Vehicle Mounted Window Cleaning System.
Portage™ is available in a number of different specifications. For
those who have a static pure water system or operate in soft water
conditions Portage™ has a quick fill cap so it can be used as a simple
delivery system with 12v pumps and DI filtration.
For hard water areas Portage™ can be configured with full RO/DI
filtration with such features as Fast-fill bo ost pump, ROMS™, PDI™,
PFS™ and fully automatic RO flush.
Unlike other flat tank systems, the underside of the Portage™ tank
has been carefully designed to ensure that 100% of tank capacity
runs to the 12v delivery pumps. So unless you’re parked on a steep
incline you’ll be able to use every drop of the tanks water capacity
even when the water level is low.
Window Cleaner safety has always been our highest priority, the
Portage™ design was inspired after rewatching hours of crash test footage
from our 2003 Thatcham crash test program. The lifting forces generated
during a certain phase of a head on crash are considerable.
For that reason most of the clamping on our other FMVSS-208 tested
designs can be found at the rear of the framework. In a head on crash
with Portage™ fitted in a van the absence of clamps at the rear of
the tank allows the tank to lift and be arrested by the roof of the van
instead. In the event of a head on crash, the purposefully
hinged design allows the energy and momentum of the system to dissipate away
from the cabin minimizing the risk of fatal injury to the driver and passengers.
The dimensions of the tank and the FMVSS-208 brackets that fix the tank
securely to the chassis at the front combine to prevent the heavy water
filled tank from colliding with the driver and passenger seats to avoid
fatal crush injuries. The benefit of this design is that whilst security is
maintained the tank can be removed in minutes leaving the vehicle free for
