Gray & Adams unveils its CV Show plans

Britain’s leading manufacturer of temperature-controlled transport solutions has revealed its line-up for next month’s (14-16 April) Commercial Vehicle Show.

Featuring on the Gray & Adams stand in the COOL sector at the NEC, will be a 13.6m lifting deck semi-trailer in Marks & Spencer’s new ‘Adventures in Imagination’ livery, and an 18-tonne rigid commissioned by Burnt Tree’s successful Refrigerental operation. Outside the show halls, meanwhile, Gray & Adams will be presenting another 18-tonner in the colours of Greggs, the UK’s number one bakery food-on-the-go retailer.

“These are three prestigious names so we’re delighted that they’ve agreed to support us,” says Gray & Adams Joint Managing Director Peter Gray. “The CV Show is a great event and we look forward to meeting as many established and prospective customers as possible.”

The Marks & Spencer trailer employs a series of cleverly engineered measures that allow it to carry 44 pallets, 10 per cent more than a standard 13.6m double-decker.

It has a Thermo King SLXe low noise, low emission refrigeration unit and two S3 evaporators, and is fitted with the manufacturer’s latest-generation panel cappings, which are more aerodynamically profiled than its previous, standard one-piece versions – the new cappings help to reduce diesel consumption as well as giving the trailer or rigid vehicle a more modern, streamlined appearance.

The Refrigerental vehicle will also wear a new livery. Gray & Adams’ insulated body is based on a DAF chassis and features a moving longitudinal lane for load-carrying flexibility. It is equipped with a 1500kg Dhollandia flat platform tail-lift, while cooling is via a multi-temperature Thermo King T-1000 Spectrum unit.

Completing the line-up in Birmingham, Greggs’ 18-tonne Scania is fitted with Gray & Adams’ well proven body design, which incorporates a compression buffer system developed to minimise damage while operating on loading docks, as well as a movable Variable Stow bulkhead for maximum cargo carrying flexibility and a 1500kg Dhollandia column tail-lift. Another Thermo King Spectrum multi-temp fridge – in this case a T-1000R – provides the refrigeration.
