Package minimizes reefer unit damage
Jul 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Thermo King's new Intermodal Protection Package is intended to protect refrigeration units from damage during intermodal shipment by truck and rail.
Constructed from heavy-duty steel, this product has been engineered and analyzed for maximum strength and durability. “Testing shows that less than 0.25" deformation will occur when a 68,000-lb force is applied to the frame,” said Jason Forman, accessories product manager. “Our protection package also offers 180-degree protection, minimizing damage from both frontal and side impacts.“
The Intermodal Protection Package also is engineered for convenience. It fits all new-look SB Thermo King units and mounts directly to the SB unit — not the front trailer wall — to maintain trailer integrity on impact. It is available as an easy-to-install kit with many preassembled sections, and can be installed without removing reefer unit from the trailer. The design allows all doors to be opened without removing the cage, and the package is easily transferable from one unit to another.
