Krone’s new Cool Liner GRP for hot climates

Hannover, Germany, Krone is showing at the IAA Hanover truck show its re-designed Cool Liner GRP series tailored to meet the requirements of southern European operators.

A new feature is the 60mm front wall, constructed from a single piece of PUR foam. This improves the K-value and increases the stability of the front wall. As standard, the side-wall panels are 65 mm thick and have an integrated kick strip.

Krone's designed Cool Liner GRP seriesAs an option, Krone also offers 49mm thick side wall panels with an integrated kick strip. Special inserts in the side walls also have a stabilising effect on the whole box. The roof panels are 95mm thick as standard and those above the double rear doors, 90 mm.

Another feature that has been revised is the panel connection system which provides higher strength and improved insulation. Continuous cross-section aluminium profiles have been fitted externally to the longitudinal side of the box as well. On the side, perpendicular to the front wall, newly designed continuous aluminium profiles are also used. These stabilise the front corners of the box along with the new version of the chassis.

The interior of the new generation of Cool Liner GRP has also new designs features: The cable routing for the interior lighting, as well as the temperature sensor have been integrated into the roof. Lights and sensors can therefore be individually positioned or supplemented if needed. Four LED lights provide good illumination and these are operated via a door contact switch. As with the previous generation, the kick strips are welded to the aluminium floor, thus creating a liquid-tight floor pan.

Also new: the floor in the rear section is additionally reinforced for heavy forklift loads. The modified Cool Liner is also HACCP certified.  Based on ramp traffic experience, and for protection during docking, substantial compression buffers are fitted. If the vehicle hits the ramp roughly, the forces are transferred via corner reinforcements into the chassis side rails thus protecting the trailer’s superstructure.

An evaporator guard is fitted to the front wall and secured from the inside which makes it easy to remove for servicing. It protects the fridge evaporator from damage during loading and unloading operations. Additionally, multi-lip doors seals protect against temperature loss.
