CoolKit adds 3.5t box van to its inventory

A forward-thinking manufacturing business has seen a rise in enquires after bringing a new product to market.

Award-winning CoolKit is busy converting vehicles for new and existing customers after adding the 3.5t box van to its inventory.

The demo of the refrigerated box van was displayed as part of the CV show earlier in the year, and shortly after the Lancashire-based company celebrated being selected as manufacturer of choice for Renault Trucks as part of their ‘Ready for Business’ range.

The Renault Master refrigerated box van has been manufactured utilizing a high-impact ultra-light GRP interior with aluminum kick strip fitted to the wall and floor joints, together with a high-density RTM Styrofoam insulation under vacuum pressure to create the vehicle body panels. An under-body refrigeration unit was specified, suitable for a temperature range of 0°C to + 3°C.

The rear of the vehicle features double rear doors, complete with retainers and lockable handles as well as internal release. A grab handle was also included within the design of the box body, to allow easier entry and exiting of the vehicle, finished with a lightweight rear safety step and parking distance sensors.

The finished product boosts internal dimensions of 3.1m length, 1.9m wide and 1.8m height, with a payload of 1,156Kg inclusive of 90% fuel and a driver at 75Kg.

Cameron Javed, Sales Director of CoolKit, said: “The lightweight refrigerated box van was designed and manufactured with our customers in mind. We knew there was a need for a quality box body vehicle and we invested heavily in research and development to create a new and advanced design solution for this type of refrigerated vehicle.

“We are delighted to see a spike in the number of enquiries and orders we are receiving.”

Speaking earlier in the year, Grahame Neagus, Head of LCV for UK & Eire for Renault Trucks, explained why he selected CoolKit as a partner.

He said: “We at Renault Trucks have three main values in everything we do in robustness, customer intimacy and commitment and CoolKit are able to support us in the delivery of such values.

“With partners like CoolKit we are confident that our new Ready for Business packages in the chilled and frozen sector will set us apart and allow our customers to be even more effective, efficient and profitable.”

The new Ready for Business range allows Renault Trucks customers to have quick delivery of a premium refrigerated vehicle. As one van is sold, another is provided by CoolKit. Detailed specifications can also be catered for depending on the company’s needs.

CoolKit are also the official provider for Renault Trucks panel van conversions, with a fridge van, and a freezer van option based on the latest Euro 6 powered Renault Master.
