Gist 44-pallet lifting-deck reefer trailer

Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, UK: Gist has taken on some of the first 44-pallet lifting-deck refrigerated 13.6m trailers in Britain. The Gray & Adams trailers, a new addition to the Gray & Adams range, offer a 10% increase in pallet-carrying capacity compared to a standard, 13.6m double-decker.

Gist has specified a combination of dual- and single-temperature Carrier refrigeration units while some of its new trailers are additionally fitted with retractable Dhollandia 1500kg tail-lifts: as well as the bottom decks, these can access the upper decks in their lowered positions. Each of the new trailers runs on six 445/45 R 19.5 tyres in place of the more conventional twelve 215/75 R 17.5s.

The trailers have wide-radius, leading-edge cappings to smooth the airflow and reduce fuel consumption.

Gist engineering director Sam de Beaux says: “We won’t always make full use of their increased carrying capacity, but there will certainly be times when the ability to carry an extra four pallets on our new trailers is going to be very useful indeed.”

As well as supplying the vast majority of Gist’s trailers, Gray & Adams also builds insulated bodies for the operator’s rigid trucks – this year’s orders include a number for mainly single-temperature 8.2m and 6m insulated boxes which are being fitted to a fleet of 18-tonne Daf chassis.
