New Paneltex Mercedes-Benz Sprinters set for VE Live launch

Mercedes-Benz Van Experience Live

June 2018, Millbrook Proving Ground

The first ever temperature-controlled new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter was exhibited by Paneltex at the Commercial Vehicle Show in April this year. This vehicle is a side-loading, 3-compartment, multi-temperature home delivery vehicle and will be on show again at the Mercedes-Benz Van Experience Live at Millbrook over the last two weeks in June. Read on for announcements of two related new product innovations.

We are also delighted to announce the first display of two further Paneltex innovations on the new 2018 Sprinter, both to be launched at the Van Experience alongside the first vehicle.
To perfectly complement the side-loader, we will be showing the first ever rear-loading home delivery vehicle on the new Sprinter chassis-cab, also built by Paneltex in Hull. With a high payload, a dual-temperature chilled/ambient body and aerodynamic skirts and cab air deflector, this is the perfect urban hub-and-spoke distribution vehicle.

Along with these two chassis-cab based vehicles, we will also be showing another world first – the first ever temperature-controlled new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter panel van conversion. This vehicle retains the new Sprinter styling, through our patented Somers Direct Air Cover, hiding the refrigeration condenser from view, while also optimising the air flow onto the heat exchanger. This is a dual-temperature frozen/chilled conversion, with a freezer-grade sliding side door, maintaining ATP Class C standard in the front freezer compartment. A fixed internal bulkhead separates this from the rear chilled compartment, which is prepared with internal pallet protection and load restraint track.

We are excited to show our vehicle bodies and conversion at the Mercedes-Benz Van Experience Live 2018 over the coming weeks. These three vehicles will be available to look around at the event, being held at Millbrook Proving Ground.
