CoolKit secures patent for new temperature-controlled transport tech

CoolKit has secured a patent for a new Thermal Lining System that it says will revolutionise temperature-controlled transport solutions.

The new solution was developed for a leading pharmaceutical wholesaler to ensure the even distribution of hot and cold air throughout the complete load area of their fleet of vans

The new solution was developed for a leading pharmaceutical wholesaler to ensure the even distribution of hot and cold air throughout the complete load area of their fleet of vans.

Unlike the established, bulky, evaporating system, CoolKit’s Thermal Lining System has been designed to be more discreet, using ducts hidden in the insulated floor and ceiling and featuring a large number of vents to dispatch streams of hot air through the floor and cold air through the ceiling.

This ensures a uniform temperature around the whole interior without reducing the usable height of the interior.

The patent, which has been pending for some five years, has now been approved.

Rupert Gatty, CoolKit’s CEO, said: “We have successfully been using this solution with customers for some years now and we’re thrilled to finally get our long-awaited patent.

“Not only does it confirm our status as a leader in innovative solutions within the industry, it reaffirms our expert position with our customer base, who rely on us to provide the safe and compliant solutions they need.
