Aimed at a variety of sectors, including pharmaceutical and food logistics, the Melform portfolio of insulated containers ranges in size from 20 litres to 1,350 litres capacity. Comprising a heavy-duty polyethylene shell in conjunction with polyurethane insulation, the containers are manufactured using a rotational moulding process which results in strong, light construction without corners, joints and welds, and they are fully recyclable at the end of their operational life.

Temperature control is available either by electrically powered refrigeration, rechargeable batteries or rechargeable eutectic plates. Options include front and top loading formats, variants with or without air recirculation, as well as optional control by Bluetooth and App. Many of the products have been ATP Certified to prove their suitability for European cross-border transport of perishable loads.

CoolKit managing director Rupert Gatty said: “Melform has a fantastic reputation and already features prominently around numerous major fleet operators. Globally. Their products perfectly complement the range of temperature controlled vehicle conversions we manufacture ourselves, meaning we now offer an unrivalled range of solutions for companies transporting temperature controlled loads.”

CoolKit will display Melform products on its stand at this year’s CV Show.
