Iceland orders 106 refrigerated van conversions

ICELAND Frozen Foods has commissioned Refrigerated Vehicles to provide RVL temperature-controlled van conversions for 106 Vauxhall Combos and Mercedes Sprinters which form part of its new 800-strong home delivery fleet. The vans have been converted so that they can be used for frozen, chilled or ambient operation.

Refrigerated Vehicles' insulated panel kits have been used on the Combos and Sprinters. These use three-element panels which fit around the interior of the load space to create a lightweight conversion which can increase payload potential. The kits create a box within a box to produce a temperature-efficient insulator which achieved a K-factor value of 0.3 when tested to ATP class C certification.

A strong laminate floor has been used with insulated wheel boxes to stop heat getting in and insulated glass fibre panels have been used on the original factory-fitted doors, eliminating the need to custom build new doors. Temperature control is provided by Hubbard 360L direct drive refrigeration systems for the Combos and Thermoking V250/10 Max systems for the Sprinters.
