Conventional trailer walls are built using a foam in-place structure with an aluminium outer skin riveted to aluminium posts with wood inserts and a thermoplastic liner. The new moulded structural composite approach addresses equipment challenges that these refrigerated carriers have been facing for years: thermal efficiency, strength, weight and longevity.
> Lightweight properties reduce weight by up to 20%
> Structural strength eliminates the need for metal or wood
> 2X puncture resistance over traditional options
> Extended product life
> Boosts thermal performance by up to 28%
Structural strength eliminates the need for metal or wood
The moulded structural composite is made with a high-efficiency foam core, encapsulated in a shell of polymer-impregnated high-performance non-crimp fabrics and covered with a protective gelcoat. This unique chemistry offers a solution that can deliver new levels of efficiency and a higher return on investment.
