What is a Medium Freezer Van

Medium freezer vans are vehicles that have been installed with insulation and a freezer unit. This type of freezer vehicle isn’t too large, nor is it as compact as a small freezer van. This means that a medium freezer van will offer you much of the storage advantages of a large freezer van, as well as some of the mobility and manoeuvrability advantages of a smaller van. Medium freezer vans are popular in the UK for businesses in the food industry, where food safety is critical. Organisations that are in the distribution, transportation and logistics industry also commonly use medium freezer vans. If your business regularly transports food, flowers, pharmaceuticals, science supplies, medical materials, or other sensitive cargo at specific temperatures, you will benefit greatly from purchasing your own medium freezer van.

We can provide you with a medium freezer vehicle that best matches your business needs and budget. We guarantee that the vehicle will satisfy you in terms of fuel efficiency and comfort.

What Are Medium Freezer Vans Used For?

There are a number of ways a medium freezer van can contribute positively to your business, especially if you are in the transportation and logistics business, or if food safety is crucial to your operation. With a Glacier Vehicles medium freezer van, you will have greater control over the ability of your business to deliver fresh, perishable goods on time. This is important for businesses that frequently need to transport meat, fish, or other seafood across long distances. The freezer truck will keep the cargo frozen and in pristine condition until it reaches its destination. Companies in the pharmaceutical or medical industry can also benefit from owning a freezer truck to transport sensitive cargo that needs to be kept at specific temperatures at all times.

Our medium freezer vans are engineered to deliver optimal, consistent, and stable cooling. The cargo area of the vehicle can attain and maintain temperatures of between 0 and -25 degrees for long periods of time without incident. Alternatively, you can own a fleet of freezer vans and lease them out to businesses in your vicinity that can’t afford one of their own. To get a medium freezer vehicle of your own that preserves your cargo at the right temperature, and ensures you deliver according to your industry standards or to the preference of your clients, call us now on 0208 668 7579. We are always on hand to help you decide which of our medium freezer vans is the right one for you and your business.

Medium-Sized Temperature Controlled Vehicles for your Transportation & Logistics Needs

A temperature controlled van, with a cargo compartment that can hold cargo at below zero temperatures during short and long hauls, is beneficial for transportation and logistics needs in various industries. Such a truck will be of great help to your organisation, especially if you frequently need to transport perishables or other sensitive cargo. Glacier Vehicles can provide you with a medium freezer vehicle that meets your unique business needs, improves quality of your services, and minimises your transportation and fuel costs. Simply put, we help you better satisfy your clients with lower overhead costs.

This is possible because our vans are converted into freezer trucks with top of the line freezer systems and insulation. The van itself, be it new or used, is selected for our stock based on its roadworthiness, and capability to travel long distances while carrying cargo without complications. Regardless of whether you are part of the supply chain, cold chain, or distribution industry, we have the freezer trucks and the services to optimise your business performance. Contact Glacier Vehicles for a consultation on the most suitable freezer van for the terrain, distance, and type of cargo you typically work with. Check out our catalogue of medium freezer vans now to find one for you. Alternatively, you can visit our showroom in Surrey to see for yourself the medium freezer vans we have available.

How temperature controlled Van Refrigeration Units work

Transporting perishable products at specific temperatures can be tricky without the right facilities. We provide you with the best facilities to do so by supplying you with a refrigerated truck of your own. A medium refrigerated van, be it used or brand new, must possess certain features as standard. At Glacier Vehicles, all our refrigerated vehicles are modified to deliver optimal and stable cooling in various weather and driving conditions. To ensure our clients can perform long distance cargo transportation without hassle and unnecessary costs, the engines of all our medium refrigerated vehicles are fuel efficient.

Thermal insulation

Our medium freezer vans, such as our dry goods panel vans, have an insulated, airtight cargo area that’s optimised for efficient temperature control and ideal for food transportation. This insulation is an integral part of controlling the temperature, because it prevents the cool air within the cargo area from escaping, and stops heat seeping in from the outside. We deliver high performing refrigerated trucks by using not only high quality insulation material but also installing them in thicker layers of up to 75mm. This makes it possible to maintain temperatures between zero and -25 degrees celsius during long distance travel, regardless of cargo size.

Thermal engineering

Our engineers approach the thermal engineering of our medium freezer vans through a four part process that converts a normal medium van into a refrigerated van. The process involves:

Styrofoam: Styrofoam with a density of up to 75mm thickness will be installed in the walls of your freezer van. This density of foam PCF (or pounds per cubic foot) helps minimise heat penetrating the cargo space, and maintains freezing temperatures within the van.

Wood boarding: The wood used in this process is treated to prevent rot caused by moisture seeping into the wood. The wood is used for the walls and floor, and is treated with food safe, anti-bacterial fungicide.

Fibreglass: Fibreglass is installed as interior sheeting for insulation purposes. This material is used for insulation because of its ability to minimise heat/cold transfer. The fiberglass also acts as a keying agent for the GRP resin which is applied next.

GRP resin interior: The interior of the medium refrigerated van will be finished with GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) resin with a wet lay roller. We use the wet lay method because it is hygienic, effective, and easy to clean.

Our medium freezer vans also feature a direct drive mechanism. This is the mechanism responsible for providing the power needed to run the cooling system of the van. It operates by making use of the van’s engine to directly power the freezer system’s refrigeration, condenser, compressor, and evaporator.

Temperature control

Temperature control is another crucial aspect of the design of our medium freezer vans. Part of the temperature control is accomplished by pulling in air from the outside and circulating it around any heated parts to keep them cool. The cooling compartment of the freezer van also comes with a thermostat that allows you to effectively regulate the freezing temperature of the system. The medium freezer van also features static and movable partition walls in different parts. The partition wall that separates the cargo area from the driver cabin is engineered in such a way that it ensures the freezing temperature of the cargo area doesn’t extend to the driver or passenger cabin.

What Components are used in a Medium Refrigerator Vans/Conversions?

Our medium freezer vans are capable of optimal, consistent cooling and freezing for long periods because of the state of the art freezer systems we install. Most of our medium freezer vans feature the New Hubbard refrigeration system or the GAH refrigeration system, with new GRP wet line insulation.

The freezer van’s system consists of a 2-temperature fan kit, and a dual compartment insulated coolbox/cargo compartment, that allows for simultaneous heating and cooling. Any of our freezer vans can attain and maintain temperatures of between 0 to -25 degrees. Within the cargo hold, light GRP sheeting is used to securely line the interior surface of insulated panels. This delivers long term durability and safety in any medium freezer van you select from us. The cargo interior also features load bearing floor panels that can be customised by our specialists to suit your business needs. After installation of the freezer system, all our vehicles go through multipoint checks, and comprehensive MOT testing, to guarantee the freezer vehicle is fully prepared for your rigorous transportation or logistics needs.

Medium Freezer Van Cargo Options

Depending on what you intend on transporting with your medium freezer van, we can provide you with a cooling vehicle that has the following cargo options:

  • Extra Shelving or Racking
  • Meat Rails: These will greatly serve butchers, restaurateurs, farmers and others who supply meat for a variety of events
  • Slide Drawers
  • Standby capability
  • Strip Curtains: For hygiene purposes
  • Wet Load or ‘Slip Resistant’ floors: To minimise the risk of accidental slips while loading or unloading the truck.

Types of Medium Freezer Vans

Our catalogue of medium freezer vehicles, both brand new and used, cover a wide variety of manufacturers, models, and designs. You can contact us for a MWB (Medium Wheel Base) or SWB (Short Wheel Base) medium freezer van. Wheelbase is the distance between the centre of the rear wheels and the centre of the front wheels. A Medium Wheel Based vehicle has a base length that’s not as large as that of a large van nor as short as that of a small van.

Vans with a medium wheelbase are compact enough to make for easy manoeuvrability, but are still large enough to hold impressive amounts of cargo. They are also fuel efficient because of their size, as they are not as heavy as large vans. Simply put, with a medium van with a MWB, you get the best of both worlds of small and large freezer vans. Bear in mind that the length of a MWB will vary from model to model. For a medium refrigerated vehicle with a wheelbase that best satisfies your specifications and unique needs, please contact us on 0208 668 7579 for a free consultation.

Recommended Vehicles

Medium freezer vans are about 2.5m in internal length, and are typically 2 pallet vans. They are capable of transporting cargo with a weight of up to about 800 kg. The specific amount of weight a freezer van can carry will depend on the exact type and model of the van.

  • Ford Custom
