CoolKit showcases box body refrigerated vehicle at CV Show

Fridge van conversion specialist CoolKit has launched a brand-new solution for a refrigerated box body at this year’s CV Show.

The new box body solution brings rear door central locking for safety.

Showcased at the event, the first completed conversion is an insulated box body fitted onto a Mercedes Sprinter MWB chassis, offering a payload of 1191kg.

Design features included as standard covergloss interior, aluminium sections, stainless steel rear frames and door furniture, together with a high impact GRP interior surface said to be lighter and stronger than current industry solutions.

The new CoolKit box body solution also brings rear door central locking, with a two-stage lock for safety with no visible exterior fixings.

Other features include anti-slip GRP flooring, door aperture to allow a fully loaded pallet at 1340mm width, 360-degree camera system, under chassis refrigeration unit and light-weight rear step fitted to the full width of the door opening. It also utilises new ‘fit and forget’ LED cluster lights, said to result in less maintenance on the vehicles.

Rupert Gatty, managing director, said: “We have designed an insulated box body that will offer durability, quality, strength, flexibility and capabilities way above current industry standards.”
