Refrigerated Trailer Flooring Sills
Apitong Refrigerated Trailer Flooring Made to Your Design Specifications
Refrigeration trailers carry cargo in a climate controlled environment. The insulation for these trailers must meet the necessary R-value (Thermal Resistance) to protect frozen, cold or chilled cargo. To provide the space necessary for foam insulation, a refrigerated trailer has voids below the aluminum flooring and behind the walls.
These voids in the floor function as:
- An area for foam to be installed
- Structural support for cargo and for loading equipment such as fork lifts
Soft woods and domestic woods like Oak are typically used for refrigerated trailer flooring. However, these woods are a short-term “solution” that cost more in the long run. Using a hardwood like Apitong for flooring sills offers you a low-maintenance and long-lasting solution. Why?
Durable Apitong sills are exceptionally strong and exceed the necessary R-value thermal resistance. Their ability to handle more weight and abuse over a longer period of time means they require less repair and replacement.
