At the 2017 International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) Distribution Solutions Conference, which is running Oct 15-17 in National Harbor MD, Great Dane is showcasing several innovative products designed for temperature-sensitive deliveries.
Conference attendees can visit Booth #239 to view an Everest refrigerated trailer and an Alpine refrigerated truck body both featuring Great Dane’s exclusive ThermoGuard liner with Microban broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection that helps fight bacteria growth, stains and odors for the entire life of the trailer or truck body.
Among the items on display at Great Dane’s booth are:
•A 48-foot Everest Multi-Temp refrigerated trailer featuring several safety features, including ThermoGuard lining with Microban antimicrobial protection. It also has Great Dane’s ReverseAlert 4-in-1 backup alarm system featuring Grote’s integrated lamp that combines stop/tail/turn and backup functions into one industry-standard size lamp.
Another safety feature on this reefer is Great Dane’s new RIG30 rear impact guard, which received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) TOUGHGUARD award that recognizes rear underride guards designed to help prevent a range of deadly underride crashes. High-output LED strip lighting is featured in the cove molding of the Everest to provide more uniform lighting coverage, resulting in fewer shadows and greater freedom in the placement of bulkheads and remote evaporators. Finally, this reefer has a 1.32-inch heavy-duty concentrated reefer cargo flat aluminum floor with a Safety-Grip surface. This floor is rated at 20,000 pounds.
•A 24'-6" Alpine refrigerated truck body featuring Great Dane’s ThermoGuard liner enhanced with Microban antimicrobial protection. Great Dane also partnered with lightweight metals engineers from Arconic to develop a prototype lightweight, aluminum rear frame design for the Alpine. This frame provides a 45% weight savings over the former stainless steel design. The sheet-and-post truck body also features a side door with Great Dane’s blade lock design that exerts constant pressure along the full height of the door to prevent air loss around the total perimeter.
Other features on this Alpine include a 1.32-inch aluminum reefer cargo Safety-Grip floor, two rows of full-length horizontal logistics track and a Grote interior motion sensor dome light. It is mounted on a Hino 268 chassis.
