Dometic Group, a global provider of cooling and convenience products, announced the release of a commercial-grade rooftop air-conditioner for trucks. The Commercial Grade A/C is designed to overcome harsh and unusual road and weather conditions for heavy-duty cooling in tough environments.

“Many standard air-conditioning units break down after just four hours of extreme vibration testing, while the Dometic Commercial Grade is still going strong at 30 hours and more,” said Charlie Barefoot, engineering director for Dometic Americas. “Dometic is committed to delivering the trucking industry innovative solutions to provide drivers with comfort and durability, regardless of road conditions.”

The Commercial Grade A/C unit is rugged and strong, yet lightweight at just 91 pounds. It features a top plate made of .040 galvanized steel, and the powdercoated base pan is 15% thicker than other models.

This unit controls vibration with strong L brackets that tie the motor, compressor, and evaporator together. It also features long copper lines and dual rubber bushings at the top and bottom of the unit to control noise and vibration.
