Great Dane Trailers debuts its newest refrigerated trailer today at the Great American Trucking Show -- the Classic Truckload reefer (CTL).
It features ThermoGuard and CorroGuard, which help extend the useful life of refrigerated trailers and combat equipment deterioration and corrosion. Both products are featured at Booth #15105 on a 53-foot CTL reefer and a 48-foot FREEDOM platform trailer.
Showcased on the CTL is CorroGuard with Technology by GatorHyde, Great Dane's exclusive spray-in-place thermoplastic elastomer coating applied to suspensions and support gear that provides superior long-term protection from road abrasion and corrosion.
In addition to CorroGuard, the CTL features Great Dane's exclusive ThermoGuard interior lining. This exclusive revolutionary thermoplastic liner helps maximize the useful life of the trailer by significantly reducing the thermal degradation that occurs with conventional reefer linings.
ThermoGuard's innovative construction helps allow the insulation to perform effectively year after year, extending productivity and the useful lifecycle. Plus, operational costs are reduced as the cooling unit will run less, consume less fuel, and require less maintenance, making it the only reefer lining to offer an all-around return on investment.
By helping to maintain insulation performance over the life of the trailer, the cooling unit will not have to work as hard each year to make up for degrading insulation performance. This advantage helps maintain excess capacity, while lowering cooling unit run-time hours and saving cooling unit fuel.
