A pinnacle of strength, the Everest line of Great Dane reefers provide maximum benefits— with top-grade construction and the best new technology.

Summary


Designed for a variety of refrigerated trucking operations, the line of Great Dane Everest reefers incorporates design features aimed at providing exceptional cargo protection, reducing weight and lowering maintenance costs.

Designed for a variety of refrigerated trucking operations, the line of Great Dane Everest reefers incorporates design features aimed at providing exceptional cargo protection, reducing weight
and lowering maintenance costs.

Everest reefers are built from front to back with strength in mind. Extruded aluminum Z-post uprights support fully welded aluminum refrigeration unit bracing in the front wall, eliminating the use of dis- similar metals to significantly cut the chance of galvanic corrosion.

Wall panels for Everest reefers are constructed in a temperature regulated press using a computer-controlled urethane injection process that insulates components, producing flat linings and skin with void- free foam for maximum thermal efficiency.

An aluminum roof manufactured using a patented corrugation process is standard in Everest reefers, adding stiffness to the structure and controlling thermal expansion and minimizing the potential for delamination from the insulation.

Rear frames constructed of satin-finish stainless steel are used on Everest reefers for maximum strength and minimum maintenance. Resistance to corrosion and the overall enhanced appearance of stainless steel also increases resale value.

All aluminum doors on Everest models are completely sealed, inside and out, to eliminate moisture intrusion into the insulation. A unique gasket design uses a dual-lip outer seal and a separate inner compression seal to lock in refrigerated air. All rear door hardware is installed with stainless steel bolts. Lock rods are galvanized steel and incorporate anti-seize bushings between the lock rod tube and the bearing plates to ensure smooth operation.
Great Dane's reefer floor system combines the industry's highest floor rating with the strongest support features. The aluminum duct floor is robotically welded full length to seal out all moisture. The floor's insulation is further protected from external moisture by a one- piece thermoplastic sub pan that is extremely impact resistant. Employing Magnicoated fasteners to install the floor and full width composite floor sills, which are located over each crossmember for extra support, also enhances corrosion protection. Composite sills also lessen the chance of weld breaks caused when wood sills are crushed or deteriorate due to moisture.

Everest reefer models are equipped with Grote MicroNova DOT LED lamps, designed to improve visibility and service life. Also stan- dard is the industry's best wiring harness. The fully modular Great Dane Long Life Light System is a maintenance-free solution backed by a ten–year warranty. This sealed harness prevents moisture intrusion, is extremely durable, and combines the flexibility of a custom wiring system with the reliability and simplicity of a sealed harness.

Great Dane offers the latest advancements in all LED interior lighting in Everest reefers for better performance, greater illumination and ease of replacement.

Great Dane's complete package of comprehensive corrosion prevention solutions are available on Everest reefers. A key component of this package is Great Dane's exclusive corrosion protection, CorroGuard, a superior trailer undercoating that was developed specifically for trailer underbody protection from rock and stone impingement and chemical resistance to current de-icing chemicals and road hazards.

Everest reefers can be enhanced with special packages, including a Meat Railer Package that is designed for suspended load applications of up to 40,000 lbs, a tridem axle configuration and air-ride suspension package for operations where weight laws permit added payload through weight distribution, and a widespread tandem axle configuration with an air-ride suspension that allows for an increase in per axle weight providing flexibility of load placement.

Great Dane's reputation as the industry leader in reefer innovation is firmly in place in the line of Everest Reefers, including Everest TL, Everest SS and Everest CL models for long-haul truckload customers, specialized haulers and multi-temp carriers.
