Moulded structural composite refrigerated trailer

A moulded structural composite refrigerated trailer, offering 20% weight saving and 28% improved thermal performance, manufactured in serial production.

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.

Key Benefits:
> 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.
