The most common type of reefer unit, front fixed refrigerated trailers take their name from a single temperature control unit placed at the front of the trailer. Typically these types of refrigerated trailers will have their own power supply separate from the vehicle itself.
Multiple Temperature Zone
Multiple temperature zone refrigerated units are named due to their unique ability to set separate and different temperature zones within the same refrigerated reefer unit. This makes these units a great option for multiple daily deliveries of frozen and fresh food or various flowers that need to be kept at different temperatures.
Wood flooring provides greater air circulation and shock absorption than the metallic-floored option in refrigerated trailers. However, the moisture retention over time can also cause them to spoil and need to be replaced. Additionally, because they are less rigid, the wooden floors typically provide a more gentle and cushioned ride for their cargo than metallic floors do.
Metallic floors in reefers provide less air circulation than wooden floors, but they also provide cost savings due to their ability to remain at the same temperature with less energy used once cooled. Great for frozen or cooled products that don’t need air circulation, the metallic floor reefers are also more durable than wooden floors.
