Aerodynamic Optimization

The optimized aerodynamics  of our CoolerBox2.0 Maxi is a standard feature which saves on fuel consumption and reduces CO2 emissions coming from your vehicle.

Integrated marker lights on the front

A standard feature of our refrigerated truck bodies having a total width of 2.10 m: Our recessed marker lights which are integrated on the front side offer additional protection from damage caused by branches or similar. Furthermore, its design offers distinct aerodynamic advantages and adds its own modern flare to our eCoolerBox2.0 . The lights are built using  long life-low energy LED technology.

Base impact protection, also at the rear doors and quarz sand reinforced synthetic floor

The loading surface is made using a very durable and abrasion resistant epoxy resin synthetic material. This material is also reinforced by adding in fine quarz sand. This combination of strong and stable synthetic material and "rock hard" quarz sand makes the loading surface incredibly resistant to abrasion. In addition, this surface also has the advantage of being extremely lightweight, in comparison with an aluminium floor, for example.

By adding quarz sand the friction coefficient of the surface is increased which means the floor is less slippery- an important feature which reduces accidents on the job- especially when the floor is wet. Furthermore, the non-slip surface also contributes considerably to improved loading securement. This feature was confirmed  and certified by  TÜV in independent tests.

Two drains- standard equipment

As a standard feature of our refrigerated truck bodies, there are two drains placed in each front corner of the body. Having two drains means any excess water will drain out even if the vehicle is parked at an angle. This feature makes cleaning a whole lot easier since the vehicle does not have to be placed in any particular way. r

The drains are fitted with a valve allowing for any liquid to drain away securely while at the same time assuring that no dirt or pests can get into the loading area.

LED-loading room lighting

Energy-saving and long-lasting loading room lighting in the form of LongLife-LowEnergy LED technology, recessed, fully integrated in the ceiling.

Aluminium hinges at the rear portal

The KRESS rear door hinges which have been specially developed by us allow for greatly improved  advertising lettering on the rear part of the refrigerated truck body due to the discrete size of the hinges. Thanks to the material we use in constructing our hinges, we have managed to achieve a lightweight yet very robust hinge in comparison with standard ones used today.

Reinforced impact protection at the rear

The rear portal of vehicles from 7.5 tons are equipped with a very sturdy impact protection bumper (not possible with a very few hydraulic platforms). The bumper is attached to the auxiliary frame and not to the truck body. This means that any impact to the vehicle will be absorbed by the auxiliary frame, thus avoiding damage to the truck body. Owing to its diagonal supports, the auxiliary frame is resistant to torsion.

Integrated door handles at rear portal

At KRESS the door handles are integrated in the door leaf of the rear doors. No locking rods can be seen. This has many advantages for you:

  • Rear doors can be decorated with advertising lettering in a much more aesthetic way.
  • The integrated locking rods cannot be tampered with, offering greater protection against theft.
  • Owing to their integrated construction, the rods are protected from dirt and are subject to less wear and tear and lock in smoothly for longer.
  • Cleaning the rear end of the truck body is made easier.

All metal components are made of stainless steel.

DUOFLEX door sealant system

The trademark feature of our DUOFLEX door sealant is the skillful combination of two different rubber compounds. This makes our doors particularly easy to handle. Especially in distribution services is this feature of great advantage to the driver who has to open and close the door particularly often in a short span of time. At the same time the sealant is highly effective owing to the soft sealing rim.

Safety Lock with emergency unlocking

Placing an emergency opening device in the loading area means the doors can be opened from within thus avoiding that anyone be accidentally  locked inside.

The accident prevention regulations of the trade association for cooling equipment  (VBG 20) prescribes in §14, para..2: "... bei ortsbeweglichen begehbaren Kühlräumen müssen die Türen oder Deckel im nicht abgeschlossenen oder nicht verriegelten Zustand von innen zu öffnen sein." (Refrigerated areas which move from place to place and can be entered must be opened from within) In this way, we adhere to this regulation.

  • Fourfold welded stainless steel rear portal frame
