Enhanced durability, increased thermal
efficiency, and reduced weight
The improved Hyundai Translead HT ThermoTech
refrigerated trailers are among the most durable, thermally efficient, and lightweight trailers on the road, according
to the company. The company has focused on how to work
in compliance with new regulations to maintain temperature efficiency, and has taken steps to address longevity
by redesigning the components of the trailer most susceptible to damage. The deck now uses taller, stiffer structures to support the floor surface. Heavy duty aluminum
floor extrusions fit together with a mechanical lock to take
stress off the welded joints, and the new fully automated
welding fixture lays down a weld-bead of greater mass for
additional strength. All Hyundai Translead products use
the corrosion protection from hot-dipped galvanization of
steel assemblies.
