Why choose an insulated trailer?

Trailers for the construction sector are regularly equipped with an insulating layer to retain the temperature of a load. A tipper for the construction sector, which may be used for the transportation of asphalt, for example, will invariably be equipped with a heat-insulating tipper body. After all, the asphalt must remain at the correct temperature during transportation to ensure successful processing. If the load cools down too much, it will no longer be usable.

A layer of mineral rockwool solves that problem.

The walls of the trailer are lined with Rockwool sheets. These consist of rock wool fibres that are bound together into water-repellent panels, after treatment with a thermosetting binder. The panels are then finished with an extra layer of aluminium, which gives insulated trailers a characteristic appearance. The certified plates are 70 mm thick and easily deliver the required thermal resistance (R < 1.65 m2 K/W).

When you’re driving short distances, covering only the floor and sidewalls with an insulating layer may well suffice. But when transporting asphalt over longer distances, it’s advisable to have the entire trailer covered in rockwool.
