The Great Guardian LT


Highly customizable, offering maximum payload capacity and superior thermal efficiency, the newest offering from Johnson is the Guardian LT reach-in refrigerated truck body.

Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies provides innovative delivery solutions for store and home delivery of refrigerated and frozen products. The newest offering from Johnson, a Great Dane company, is the Guardian LT reach-in, a highly customizable refrigerated truck body.


To maximize payload capacity for customers without sacrificing durability, Johnson has redesigned the structure of the Guardian LT body to reduce weight. The lighter weight body also allows some operations to consider a less costly, lower GVW chassis, which also helps save fuel.


Aluminum dividers, shelving and refrigeration unit supports, and a newly designed stronger bed frame and bumper all help reduce mass. The low body height also contributes to weight savings by eliminating the need for side steps, while a low ground-to-floor height helps reduce injuries and insurance claims.


The Johnson Guardian LT is equipped with the industry's only polymer automotive style, automatic door lock system, which reduces weight and eliminates corrosion. With one click, the electronic key fob option locks all body doors and the cab. The patent pending security system also has a Body Lock-out Switch option that locks product compartments and cuts power to those locks only, a critical feature when maintenance or repairs are being performed on a loaded vehicle.


Refrigeration options for the Guardian LT include mechanical units from Thermo King and Carrier as well as Johnson's AE100 deep frozen cold plate refrigeration system that maintains a -5 to -20°F temperature range. An all-electric refrigeration requiring no fuel, the system is an emission-free alternative, and with few moving parts needs little maintenance. Multi-temp options are available.


Optimizing thermal efficiency on Guardian LT bodies are the same advanced insulating methods used by Great Dane on its line of Everest reefers, the industry's most thermally efficient refrigerated trailers. The foaming process delivers maximum thermal performance by achieving consistent insulation thickness, and the void-free application produces consistently flat, smooth interior lining surfaces.


The Guardian LT can be configured with three, four, five or six doors per side and a rear door is an available option. The enhanced door seals feature a four-chamber gasket seal for extra protection against the loss of cool air or the intrusion of ambient air.


Highly efficient, lightweight and built to last, Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies' Guardian LT offers everything a wide range of customers need in a premium refrigerated truck body.
