Refrigerated Trailer Repair Done Right By Trailer Services Of West Texas

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017 Published By: Roy Williams

Keeping your refrigerated trailer maintained is imperative to transporting your freight safely. It is crucial that your trailer hold a specific temperature to ensure your sensitive loads are not put at risk. When it’s time for refrigerated trailer repair, you need to have it done by professionals.  Trailer Services of West Texas has a certified team of technicians trained to work on all your trailer needs. One of the most common failures points in refrigerated trailers is the foam insulation.  Two separate processes can repair refrigerated trailers with the use of foam. These two methods are both acceptable for fixing your trailer and will give you superior strength.

Refrigerated Trailer Repair Spray Foam Process

Trucking companies hire drivers and train them to be professional while on the roadways. Even though you are a professional and operate your truck within all highway and interstate regulations, accidents can happen. Structural repairs will be needed on your refrigerated trailer, and it may be necessary to re-foam at least a part of the sidewall. Spray foam is the most common method used in reefer trailer repairs. The structural support parts; side posts, side panels and bottom rails will all be repaired and then sprayed with foam. The excess amount of foam will be removed, so the remaining foam is the proper thickness. Once the foam is the correct thickness, the liner is glued to it. This process is an industry standard repair and will give you adequate results.

Refrigerated Trailer Repair Foam Injection Process

The foam injection process will cost more but will give you premium results. The foam injection method will also add to the life of your trailer. This process is not completed by all trailer service centers as it is labor intensive and will cost more than traditional repairs. With the foam injection, your trailer will have all cavities filled between the side panels and the interior liner. It will surround the side posts and will bond all the parts just as they were in the original production. With the injection method, there will be no glue or use of adhesives as the foam will provide all the strength and rigidity needed.

Which Refrigerated Trailer Repair Process to Use

It is your choice which process you want to be performed on your refrigerated trailer. Spray foam is accepted by many in the industry as many do not realize they have the choice of an injection method. Next time your trailer needs repairs, you should inquire if foam injection is an option for you.
