Paneltex, the Hull‐based bodybuilder, has launched three temperature‐controlled bodies for the latest Mercedes‐Benz Sprinter.
Previewed at the CV Show and unveiled in full at the Mercedes-Benz Van Experience Live event, the new solutions include a side‐loading refrigerated home delivery body with a very low access height that eliminates the need for a side step. This single body has three compartments, for ambient, chilled and frozen goods.
Paneltex has also developed its first rear‐loading home delivery vehicle on the Sprinter chassis‐cab.
Developed as an urban hub-and-spoke distribution vehicle, this includes a high payload,
Dual-temperature body with ambient and chilled sections and also incorporates aerodynamic skirts and cab air deflector.
Finally, Paneltex has developed its first ever temperature-controlled panel van conversion of the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, retaining the new styling with a Somers Direct Air Cover hiding the fridge condenser and optimising air flow to the heat exchanger.
This features dual-temperature frozen and chilled compartments, with a freezer‐grade sliding side door, maintaining ATP Class C standards in the front freezer compartment. A fixed internal bulkhead separated this from the rear chilled compartment, which was prepared with internal pallet protection and load restraint track.
