The Paneltex CV Show line-up will include a Somers ‘Flexitime’ Mercedes Sprinter van.

Developed following Ford’s recent accreditation of Paneltex to its Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) certification programme, the Transit chassis cab is designed specifically for urban food or pharma distribution work. Type approved to ATP Class C standard for international work, this vehicle will be fitted with a ThermoKing V300 over-cab refrigeration system integrated within a Paneltex Direct Air cover system to provide either a chilled or deep frozen environment. It also offers a high payload and cyclist/pedestrian side protection features.

Paneltex will also showcase a Somers ‘Flexitemp’ Mercedes Sprinter van, fitted with a GAH dual temperature reversible refrigeration system and ATP Class ‘C’ approved, at the CV Show, which takes place 25-27 April at the NEC in Birmingham.

The three-vehicle line-up will be completed by the latest 26-tonne GVW Iveco Stralis dual temperature rigid distribution chassis that will be specified with Paneltex dual temperature refrigerated body and a Carrier TRS refrigeration system.
