Morgan Improves Refrigerated Van Body Design

Morgan Corp has upgraded its refrigerated van bodies through redesign and optional modifications. Reefers have been redesigned to prevent damage to side door jamb angles during loading and unloading of pallets. This has been achieved by improving the interface between the scuff and E-track at the side door trim angle. The redesign uses two new aluminum trim angle extensions that are specific to 3" and 4" wall thickness rather than a "one size fits both" application.

Wiring on Morgan refrigerated van bodies also has been upgraded. Exterior lights now have a plugged-together sealed harness. Another new feature is a conduit system that allows lights and harness pieces to be repaired or replaced easily.

Two options are now available: new recessed E-tracks that do not require cutting through the liner, and rear mount evaporators with improved hose troughs, evaporator supports, and condensation drains. For full details, contact Morgan, PO Box 588, One Morgan Way, Morgantown PA 19543.
