STOUGHTON REFRIGERATED TRAILERS
Stoughton’s PureBlue refrigerated trailer is an innovative, conventionally designed trailer that is more thermally efficient, lighter weight & safer than other competitive trailers on the road today. The use of bonded side posts reduces the number of holes in the sidewalls to aid in preventing moisture intrusion into the trailer. Composite framing used in the front wall & rear doors optimizes thermal efficiency & reduces overall weight, letting you haul more product. Minimizing air loss with a triple wiper seal on the rear doors helps protect your cargo from the elements.
REFRIGERATION UNIT MOUNTING FRAME
PureBlue is equipped with a lightweight, high-strength, low conductivity refrigeration unit mounting frame, which accepts all refrigeration unit types and manufactures. The composite material inhibits the heat generated by the refrigeration unit from transferring into the trailer.
PLATEN FOAMING PROCESS
The Soughton platen foaming insulation process ensures thermal efficiency in the trailers sidewalls, ceiling, front wall doors, and floor. Each subassembly is insulated and then the trailer is assembled. Once assembled, all connections are separately foamed to ensure a tight airtight seal. This method provides a more consistent insulation process, leading to flat and smooth surfaces, which are less susceptable to damage.
FULLY ENCLOSED FLOOR DESIGN
The extruded aluminum heavy-duty duct floor provides optimum support for your loads even in high-use area. The fully enclosed design has a knurled edge top surface for skid resistance. There’s no wood in the entire surface which increases the life of the trailer.
DUAL SIDEWALL SCUFF GUARDS
The rivet-free 6-inch aluminum scuff band and 12-inch integral scuff liner protects the sidewall from damage during loading and unloading.
Stoughton Z-PLATE® COMPOSITE TRAILERS
Stoughton’s revolutionary Z-Plate® vans are built from composite laminate panels. These unique, patented poly-laminate panels are manufactured using epoxy coated inner and outer galvanized steel skin for superior durability even in the most demanding applications. If repairs are required, Stoughton’s Z-Plate® panel design allows easy panel replacement without requiring the removal of adjoining panels common with other plate trailer designs. This means less time in the shop and more time on the road. Stoughton’s Z-Plate® dry vans feature include solid, full-width oak floors and extra wide extruded aluminum scuff rails and the unique recessed splice plate with “A” slots for better cargo control using any standard cargo restraint system.

ALUMINUM SCUFF & SCUFF LINER
The new Z-Plate Lower Rail design is 3-½” taller, allowing rivets to be placed 3-½” higher. By moving the rivets away from the scrape zone, we have improved durability. Our new Aluminum Side Rail & Scuff combination has been increased to a full 12” height. The scuff prevents damage to the trailer interior from forklift and cargo damage while loading and unloading. This allows conspicuity tape to lay flat on the lower rail.
STANDARD REAR UNDERRIDE GUARD
The new rear underride guard comes standard with no additional cost and weight. It resists compartmental intrusion of an automobile when the location of impact is at 30% to 100% overlap of the width of the car to the guard. It complies with all applicable U.S. and Canadian regulations. The bolt-on design allows for easy repair-ability.
