We choose light, strong and durable GRP sheet with woven roving reinforcement as our regular surface: this way we can avoid the use of weighty timber elements in the wall construction, whilst not compromising on strength and durability. Load bearing floor panels benefit from additional reinforcements and a choice of finishes to suit your particular operation.
We use extruded polystyrene insulating boards to provide the highest manufacturing standards. This material has an exceptionally low thermal conductivity figure together with other appealing characteristics including high tensile and shear strength, fire resistance and closed cell structure to prevent water absorption.
A refrigeration or heating unit to extract what unwelcome heat does penetrate the lining. We always assist our customers in specifying a suitable refrigeration unit so that the converted vehicle will always maintain the correct temperature in ambient environments of up to 30° celsius (Hubbard, GAH, Carrier, Thermo King, Webasto, Diavia Frigo, Zanetti)
Our fridge van conversions are completed with a neat sealed perimeter on the door skins, reassuring our customers that no water will penetrate the van load space. The original door fittings and releases are also retained, ensuring their reliability after the insulation is fitted.
Included in our conversions is a wet-laid resin floor pan with no joints at floor level, bonded to the vans own floor around the perimeter, confirming that no water will find its way behind the lining and extending the product’s integrity and quality.
Finishing touches such as neatly routed and sealed pipes and cable runs demonstrate the professional fitting standards we adhere to, ensuring optimum reliability of our fridge van conversions.
