D. A. WERBER of Harrow, Middlesex, has introduced a range of demountable refrigerated bodies designed to fit Honda Acty, Daihatsu 850 and Suzuki ST90 micro pick-up models.
The insulated fridge boxes consist of two external and two internal glass reinforced plastic panels with a 76mm (3in) thick high-expansion urethane foam filling.
The bodies have an internal length of 1,981mm (78in) and an interior width of 1,372mm (64in). A single top-hinged tailgate is fitted equipped with thermal gaskets and lock.
Refrigeration is by a eutectic tube system with an integrated mains-driven condenser which provides holdover temperatures down to —5 degrees centigrade on the RVA chiller body, and —23 degrees centigrade on the RVB freezer model. An insulated body without refrigeration equipment is also available.
Payloads of up to 330kg (6.5cwt) can be carried in the RVA and RVB bodies, while the insulated-only body can carry up to 410kg (8cwt).
Werber quotes a price of £4,851 plus vat for a Honda Acty pickup fitted with an RVA chiller body and £5,060 for an Acty with the RVB freezer unit.
