Under the Bodywork Manufacturer category of the Transport Solution Innovation Award 2017, Lecapitaine was awarded bronze for its EasyAcc'Air sectional door, an innovation designed to greatly facilitate loading and unloading for refrigerated HGVs delivering in urban settings.
Specifically developped for vehicules distributing goods in controlled temperatures, EasyAcc'Air is the perfect illustration of the expression "Open Sesame!", combining both ease of use and technical performance. Doubly patented, this innovative design is the result of particularly accomplished consideration in terms of kinematics, with the opening system in no way impacting the overall height of the vehicle, and enabling a 100% open loading area. Additionally, to ensure the cold cell remains perfectly insulated, this new, class-C certified door type boasts an automated inflatable / deflatable joint for a perfect seal, enabling customers to significantly optimise the cold chain while at the same time securing the transportation of products.
This innovation is part of Lecapitaine's modernisation of its workshops and constitutes the crowning achievement of CoolLabs, a laboratory of ideas and experiments launched by Petit Forestier.
Discover the EasyAcc'Air door at the Lecapitaine stand, Hall 4, stand J173, as well as at the Petit Forestier stand, Hall 4, stand P 205, which is exhibiting an Iveco 16T EURO 6 truck equipped with an EasyAcc'Air door and a Carrier Supra 100% compressed natural gas refrigeration unit, which also received an award.
