• TCS&D 2019 Dates: 25 & 26 June 2019. Location: East of England Arena, Peterborough


2018 is set to be another growth year for refrigerated vehicle specialist CoolKit, as they expand their product offerings with the introduction of a range of insulated and temperature controlled containers.

TCS&D spoke to Managing Director Rupert Gatty to learn more about this exciting adventure.

“We are thrilled to have secured sole distribution rights for the Melform product range in the UK and Ireland,” explains Rupert.

“Melform is a leader in the field of temperature controlled transport systems with solutions for a range of sectors including pharmaceuticals and food logistics, sample analysis and catering. The company has been designing and manufacturing insulated containers for over 50 years, gaining a fantastic reputation within the industry and already features prominently around numerous major fleet operators.”


The Koala product range is particularly suited for the storage and transportation of pharmaceutical products and perishable goods for which an accurate temperature control is required. ATP Certified for the transport of perishable goods by road, the Koala range starts at 21 litres capacity up to 1,350 litres, with top and front opening variants and a temperature range of –30°C to +40°C.

Comprising of a heavy-duty polyethylene shell in conjunction with polyurethane insulation, the containers are manufactured using a rotational moulding process which results in strong, light construction without corners, joints and welds, and they are fully recyclable at the end of their operating life.


The Koala insulated containers allow operators to carry different types of goods at different temperatures, whether they are operating a refrigerated vehicle or not.

Thanks to a range of USB data loggers, it is also possible to control and monitor the temperature range within the containers during transit.


The Melform containers allow for precision in temperature control, with a degree of accuracy in temperature adjustment of +/- 0.5°C.

The heating and cooling units within the containers work to guarantee the required temperature no matter what the weather. The heating unit is triggered when external temperature is lower than the temperature set with the programmable digital thermostat. Likewise, the cooling unit sets into action when external temperature is higher than the desired range. | | 0808 250 6377 | @CoolKitLtd
