Bruce Rock Engineering partners with Wabash National to launch new range of refrigerated trailers

Published: May 6, 2019

Leading road transport equipment manufacturer Bruce Rock Engineering has partnered with the largest trailer manufacturer in North America, Wabash National to launch Cold Core MSC, a new range of cutting-edge refrigerated trailers.

The Cold Core MSC range combines Wabash National’s Moulded Structural Composite (MSC) technology with BRE’s Australian chassis and build expertise to deliver trailers that are aesthetically pleasing, stronger and lighter, and provide the best thermal efficiency available to the Australian market.

The new range will be unveiled at the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show, taking place between 16 and 19 May.

BRE is the sole Australian distributor for Wabash National trailer products.

Built in Australia, the Cold Core MSC range includes full-length chassis road train trailers or roll-back A-sections ranging in length from 10 pallet to 26 pallet.

Temperature ratings can be as low and minus 30°c.

Less Weight = More Freight

The new trailers offer the best thermal conductivity and tare weights, while minimising maintenance and down time.

“Many Australian freight operators are familiar with the Wabash name and the benefits that weight reductions in its products can have in increasing their load capacity,” said Bruce Rock Engineering managing director, Damion Verhoogt.

“We are able to bring the same reliability, temperature control and weight performance to this new refrigerated trailer, with the build quality, option list and smooth gloss sides that Australian operators demand.

“The Cold Core MSC will be a game-changer with 25 per cent better thermal efficiency than the Wabash conventional Arctic Lite reefer. This gain is increased to 50 per cent better than some rivals, which is based on field test data, not just theory”. 

Packed with features

The Cold Core MSC range includes a number of features that come as standard, including:

  • Full range of axle and suspension options
  • STRENX™ ultra high tensile auto fabricated chassis
  • EBS braking system
  • Double loader options
  • Multi temp zone options
  • Hella lights and DG wiring
  • Gloss gel coat finished, one piece moulded structural floor, roof, sides and front wall, fully bonded construction – no rivets
  • 100mm roof and floor insulation and 40mm side insulation
  • Stainless steel rear frame and docking bumper
  • Barn doors with stainless hardware or overhead roller door

All Cold Core MSC trailers will be available with different combinations of equipment and accessories such as tool boxes, water tanks, long range fuel, and Alcoa aluminium wheels.

Bruce Rock combines premium materials and components with stringent quality controls to ensure high-quality products that deliver sustained profitability for our clients,” said Mr Verhoogt.

“The Cold Core MSC range continues this philosophy combining global technology, research and development with Australian knowledge and expertise to bring to market a refrigerated trailer that has superior thermal efficiency, uses less fuel and reduces operating costs”.
