Refrigerated Vehicles Northern does its first New Transit conversion

Bradford, UK: Refrigerated Vehicles (Northern) has completed its first temperature-controlled conversions of the new Ford Transit Custom LWB standard roof vans.

The work was carried out at the Bradford workshop for a customer in Bradford on behalf of Polar Ford Huddersfield.

The conversion consists of 50mm insulated sandwich panel bonded and pressed on RVL Northern’s own equipment to ensure the quality and achieve the best fit.

The panels are light weight to maintain payload and hand finished with a laminate to provide a hygienic and fully washable joint-free surface.

Refrigeration is from a GAH AC20S chiller unit designed to operate down to zero degrees.  The side load door was left in use for increased access to loads.
