Located in the Cool 2018 section of the exhibition, the Paneltex stand will display a Ford Transit designed specifically for the home delivery market. The Paneltex side loading refrigerated home delivery body features a very low access height that eliminates the need for a side step. This Paneltex triple compartment body covers ambient, chilled and frozen goods in a single body and features a lightweight Paneltex GRP-moulded door frame. The vehicle also has the Paneltex GRP-moulded air deflector for improved refrigeration performance and aerodynamics, whilst the driver-friendly central locking system for the body doors works on the original Ford Transit key fob.

The firm’s stand at the show will also play host to a Paneltex Somers van conversion on a medium wheelbase, high roof VW Crafter chassis cab. Specified with a GAH SRD351F refrigeration system, this dual temperature body has compartments for both frozen and chilled goods, featuring an insulated side door for the front chilled compartment. For the rear frozen compartment, the body has the Somers SuperFreeze modular rear doors.

The conversion is completed with the Somers Direct Air Cover, which improves refrigeration performance and lowers fuel consumption, whilst retaining the OEM roof safety structure.
