PolyVan introduces new line of refrigerated truck bodies

June 5, 2019
PolyVan, a European Van Company brand, recently introduced a new line of FrigoBoxL reefer truck bodies.

PolyVan, a European Van Company brand that manufactures truck body kits for refrigerated and deepfreeze transport, recently introduced a new line of FrigoBoxL truck bodies it says are designed for professionals seeking an ultra-light aesthetic quality for transporting light insulated goods.

The company said the new bodies are intended for commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 3.9 tons to 8.3 tons.

FrigoBoxL bodies feature aerodynamic, anodized aluminum profiles for a “modern” look; pallet-type stainless steel rear frame with flush-mounted insulated rear doors; stainless steel hinges and plant-on locks; reliable insulation capacity and K-value (7Wm²K); high-quality, in-house-produced 40-millimeter FlexoLight sandwich panels; and solid 67-millimeter insulated floor, the company said.

The bodies also offer a rigid, self-supporting floor with transversal reinforcements; and “excellent” impact-resistance thanks to glass met reinforced laminates and wear plate-protected front end and side walls. FrigoBoxL bodies are designed for maximum payload, PolyVan said, making them ideal for light- and medium-duty commercial vehicles.

“With the brand-new, light-weight floor, a 4.2-meter FrigoBox Light weighs less than 550 kilograms (1,213 pounds),” the company said.
