Kidron Inc is introducing the Emperor, a new refrigerated distribution trailer designed to increase payload capacity. Lighter without sacrificing strength, Emperor models come in lengths from 28 to 53 feet. Tests show, for example, that the 36-foot model offers a weight savings of more than 500 pounds compared with previous models.

Air passage is eliminated with Kidron's Pressure-Pillow seal doors that seal in the cold and keep ambient air out. Up to 5" of foamed-in-place, non-CFC polyurethane foam insulation surrounds the cargo.

Other features include a smooth outer appearance suitable for signage; replaceable bolt-on bumpers; wiring and hoses designed for accessibility; LED harnesses; a new upper coupler; and landing gear built to reduce shock. Options include side and rear doors, floors, bumpers, ramps, liftgates, and Kidron's patented ACMT multi-temp compartmentalization system. For more information, contact Kidron, PO Box 17, Kidron OH 44636.
