A new dimension in insulation
                             1       For the first time, with Kerstner’s
                                     new manufacturing technology, it
                                     is now possible to create complex,
                                     three-dimensional shapes from a
                                     single mould (picture 1); these are
                                     particularly compact and have
                                     excellent insulation characteristics.
                                     The use of unmixed materials
                                     permits easy segregation at a later
                                     stage in accordance with the
                                     directive on end-of-life vehicles.

The advantages for you:
• Outstanding insulation value of less than 0.4 W/m2K. (This
  corresponds to the insulation properties of masonry approx.
  4.5 metres thick.)
• Special double seals on the cargo compartment doors improve
  the insulation properties (picture 2)
• Extensive range of standard equipment and great flexibility with
  specific equipment requirements
• Designed for transporting refrigerated and frozen goods
• The insulation easily meets the requirements of ATP and
  HACCP guidelines and already meets DIN 1815 specifications for
  refrigerated vehicles
• To facilitate closure of the rear and sliding doors, the insulation
  around the doors has ducts for releasing the excess pressure out
  of the cargo area




                                                                   2
Fresh ideas, new technologies
  Through streets and alleyways. In pedestrian zones and
  inner-city areas. Fresh ideas for transporting perishable
  goods don‘t take long to catch on.
  The electrically operated, low-maintenance and powerful
  refrigeration unit is harmoniously integrated into the
  Sprinter design. Due to the low body height, the vehicle
  can pass through virtually all access areas and gates.



  Electrical refrigeration – quietly competent
  The aerodynamic Cool Jet 202 E refrigeration system from Kerstner is
  operated electrically and works completely independently of the
  vehicle engine.

  The advantages for you:
  • The electrical refrigeration unit does not impair the Sprinter’s
    proverbial agility in any way whatsoever
  • The refrigeration unit also operates without the engine running,
    which means there are no emissions when loading and unloading
    the vehicle
  • An additional battery increases the refrigeration period considerab-
    ly when the engine is switched off
  • Guaranteed start: an electronic circuit takes all the necessary
    precautions against a flat battery
  • Refrigeration when stationary:
    In order to ensure refrigeration even when the vehicle is parked, a
    230V auxiliary refrigerator is also available (picture 3)
  • Transportation of frozen goods:
    The electrical refrigeration system also has deep-freeze capability
    so there are no limitations on transporting frozen goods*
  • Air conditioning and refrigeration:
    In addition to the proper transportation of refrigerated goods,
    the optional air conditioning ensures that both the goods and the
    driver keep their cool
  • The Quick-Out system:
    If required, the refrigeration unit can be exchanged within minu-
    tes. Your goods remain in the vehicle and the temperature hardly
    changes at all (picture 4)
    *Available from spring 2003

Ingenious shelving concept
Now you see it, now you don’t: the telescopic
shelf is a particularly flexible transportation
element. Operated via a pneumatic spring, the
shelf is extended and then locks into position
at the required height.

The advantages for you:
• The need for additional storage space does not
  pose a problem because the telescopic shelf is
  never in the way and yet is always on board
  (see 5 and 6 above)
• When not in use, it disappears below the roof
  of the cargo space. The entire cargo space can
  again be used to transport bulky goods



Space whichever way you look
Pallets here. Shelves there. The use of special
vacuum insulation panels on the wheel arches
ensures there is sufficient space to load Euro
pallets. The shelf rails that are integrated as
standard easily create order on different levels.

The advantages for you:
• Simple loading of Euro pallets using a fork-lift
  truck (picture 3)
• Both the cargo space floor and a rub strip that
  goes all the way round the interior of the vehicle
  are made of robust aluminium
• The cargo area floor and the rub strip are also
  available in stainless steel as an option
• Quicker loading and unloading since shelves
  can be fitted and removed in no time at all
  (picture 4)

No more elbow grease
The insulation fittings are quick and easy to clean.
A drainage system is integrated into the floor of
the cargo area as standard. In combination with
the optional anti-stain coating and self-cleaning
system, this considerably reduces the downtime
when cleaning.

The advantages for you:
• The channel (drainage system) that runs around
  the interior removes dirt and cleaning water
  from the cargo space (picture 8)
• On request, the cargo space can be covered with
  a special coating that has a micro-fine structure.
  Particles of dirt cannot gain a hold and are
  rinsed from the interior walls with the cleaning
  water
• The optional self-cleaning system (rotating spray
  head) cleans every last corner of the cargo space
  (picture 7)



Everything under control
The user-friendly, digital control unit always keeps
the driver informed about the temperature in the
cargo area. The target temperature can be set and
then monitored and adjusted at will (picture 9).

The advantages for you:
• Memory system: an optional software package
  can be used to store the operating statuses of the
  refrigeration system for several days. The data is
  recalled via a notebook; a printer can be connec-
