Multi-Stop, Multi-Temp Refrigerated Distribution Performance
K2 truck bodies by Kidron continue a tradition that spans nearly a century – a longtime commitment over generations to create high value refrigerated distribution units that can handle the rigors of frequent stops and changing temperature requirements.
Kidron K2 bodies work the tough city streets, sustaining and recovering desirable temperatures in spite of frequent door openings.
Kidron K2 bodies also work the long haul, reliably performing in all kinds of adverse weather conditions to safely protect cargo in desert heat and frigid climates, including places where product service simply isn’t available.
For special multi-stop challenges, Kidron continues to be a step ahead with unique compartmentalization options to simultaneously transport and protect ice cream, milk, produce and other types of cargo.
Plus, Kidron has other options designed to accommodate specific cargo and delivery requirements as well as encourage driver safety while reducing fatigue – all the result of Kidron’s longtime knowledge and experience. Because nobody knows cold like Kidron.
Stainless steel rear frame is the strongest in the industry.
Pressure-Pillow Seal Doors (PPS™) with two seals at 90° angles virtually eliminate air passage. The cold stays in and the heat stays out.
A Kidron exclusive, all K2 refrigerated distribution bodies can do a better job maintaining desired temperatures and quick recoveries, thanks to our exclusive ColdShield™ Temperature Management System.
- Up to five inches of non-CFC polyurethane insulation poured between inner walls and aluminum panels to hold temperatures better.
- The state-of-the-art foaming process consistently measures and controls temperature, ratio and mix. Infrared testing verifies void-free, even foaming that eliminates migration.
- Pressure-Pillow Seal Doors (PPS™) with two seals at 90° angles virtually eliminate air passage. The cold stays in and the heat stays out.
- Impermeable, interior liners reduce foam out-gassing.
Extruded aluminum duct, dairy and cargo floors are fully welded to make sure they are water-tight, with strategically positioned drains to keep cargo dry. For extra strength and secure footing, steel or aluminum tread plate surfaces are available. Floor options also include a trailer-strength box floor that provides added strength for forklift entry and heavy palletized cargo.
Radiused, 5″ extruded aluminum front corner post for added strength. Roof rail and corner caps maximize aerodynamics while reducing drag and fuel costs.
Up to 5″ of foamed non-CFC insulation fills the entire cavity between aluminum outer skin and interior liner, completely surrounding the cargo.
Kidron’s exterior LED lighting over doors increases driver visibility during entrance and egress promoting safety and productivity. Distributors are now mounting LED lights underneath bodies and trailers to enhance visibility during pre-delivery inspection.
Include a level-entry rear threshold with anti-slip surface. A variety of walk ramps are available to enhance driver entrance and egress.
