We are often asked the question. Can you build me a fridge van that will operate at both deep freeze and chill temperatures at the same time.
The answer is a big yes.
for a -18° Celsius deep freeze and 3° Chill dual temperature fridge van we would insulate the vehicle to a minimum thickness of 75mm throughout. A Hubbard or GAH Freezer unit will be fitted, we will then fit a fixed bulkhead or supply and fit a removable/moveable bulkhead depending on the customers preference. Both bulkheads will have a fan system fitted to them that draws the frozen air from the front freezer section into the rear chilled section, the fan system is run off a thermostat, so the temperature in the chill section can be regulated.

Here at CoolVan, we can fabricate all manner of different shelving systems. Popular shelves are our foldaway shelves, which give you an extra layer of storage where needed but can still be folded out of the way on the occasions you are pallet loading or stacking your product in your fridge van.
We have recently supplied a Renault Trafic fridge van to a customer which was chilled in the front section and ambient in the rear, the rear was then fitted with 3 display shelves and room for scales so the customer could serve the fish from the fridge van itself.
If you order the fridge system for your refrigerated van or freezer van with single phase standby, it will be supplied with a 10 metre power cable at no extra charge.
Temperature Recorders are very popular with Courier companies, particularly those that transport Pharmaceuticals, we also are often asked to supply them to fridge vans that we supply to customers who deliver into supermarkets or school and hospitals.
The Transcan Sentinel comes with 1 probe as standard, this is usually situated under the evaporator in the refrigerated vehicle, customers can add a second sensor, which is normally situated at the rear of the van.
The temperature recorder can print off a report at the touch of a button, showing recorded temperatures in the fridge van from intervals of every 5 minutes to 30 minutes depending on your preference.
You can even add your company name and registration number of the fridge van to the printed receipt.

Every Refrigerated van, that is either supplied or converted by Coolvan, comes fitted with LED lighting in the fridge section of the van, these lights use the latest LED technology, with a high brightness light output and a long operational life.
2 LED lights are used if the vehicle is going to operate as a dual temperature fridge/ freezer van or if the vehicle is an extra long model.
Rather than have a seperate switch for the LED lights, which can be left on by accident, CoolVan will connect the LED lights to the original lights wiring. Which means the lights will come on when the doors of the fridge van are opened and go out when the doors are closed.
If you are regularly pallet loading in your fridge or freezer van, we recommend that you choose the optional pallet protection system, this consists of 3 chequer plate alloy strips fitted to the floor, chequer plate fitted around the wheel boxes and also fitted to the lower section of the bulkhead. Fitting this will add to the natural strength of the Coolvan conversion. It also looks great.
This is a 14 hook meatrail system, the hooks are made from stainless steel, fitted to a 50mm chill temperature fridge van conversion. The vehicle model in the photos is a Renault Master LM35 Dci 125. This system has to be incorporated into the build process as the roof of the vehicle needs to be reinforced in order to take the weight of the carcasses that would be hung.
Chequer plate is fitted to the lower half of the van, including the side and rear doors in order to protect from swinging hooves.
Please call us on 0845 33 11 484 for a quote to supply a vehicle to this specification, or complete an enquiry form here.
