Kögel has introduced an advanced version of the Kögel Cool–PurFerro quality at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016—a premium refrigerated box trailer that has not only been adapted to the market requirements for transporting fresh and frozen food as well as pharmaceutical products, but is also suitable for general use.
With a broad range of special equipment options, the trailer offers a high degree of customization to specific customer requirements. Brand new, country-specific equipment options are now also available for the French and Spanish markets.
There is an axle lift for the first and third axles, a self-steering axle, a fifth-wheel load of up to 15 tonnes, a Spanish spare wheel storage compartment, and for the French market, a central ladder and a reinforced roller protective bumper.
The low-noise aluminum floor construction reduces noise generation when loading and unloading. This reduction in noise emission makes deliveries outside regulated opening hours easier.
There is a welded aluminum floor pan, improving hygiene and making it easier to clean the floor area. This prevents moisture from penetrating the load-bearing structures, which significantly increases the service life and cost-effectiveness of the refrigerated box trailer. It goes without saying that the trailer also fulfils the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) requirements for safeguarding consumer health with regard to temperature-controlled food transports in international goods traffic. In addition, the new Kögel Cool–PurFerro quality complies with the ATP/FRC requirements.
The maintenance and repair-friendly stainless steel portal is equipped with an easily replaceable, optimized four-fold door lip seal and easily replaceable aluminum hinges on the doors.
Optional tier and anchoring rails, directly molded into the walls, render a complicated retro-fit structure superfluous and help the driver to secure the load quickly and reliably. For example, the 12-stage rails per side wall and their accompanying pallet carriers can be loaded with up to 33 Euro pallets. In addition, the trailer comes with the load-securing certificate DIN EN 12642 Code XL as standard. This shows that it is particularly suitable for form-locked transport of general cargo and palletized goods.
