New coolers keep food cold for more than a week; official debut at 2015 MATS
Dometic Group’s Avalanche coolers have been designed specifically for the needs of professional truck drivers, with thick insulated walls, stainless-steel hardware, and rugged construction.
These coolers can keep food cold for 7 – 10 days, or keep hot food hot. MATS attendees can see the Avalanche models in booth #14252 at the show.
“On long-haul or short-haul trips, drivers want to keep plenty of drinks and food handy. The Avalanche cooler can be used with conventional ice or dry-ice to keep food cold up to 10 days. Or, a driver can also use the Avalanche to transport a hot meal and keep it hot,” said Jim Kerrigan, Vice President of OEM Sales, Dometic Commercial & Passenger Vehicle division.
“The Avalanche is a great way for truck drivers to have the comforts of home while on the road.”
The Avalanche feature a freezer-style seal to lock in heat or cold.
The lid of the cooler has molded cup holders to hold drinks while the molded handles make the cooler easy to transport.
Draining water out of the unit is simple with a two-inch drain plug, on a stainless steel chain so it never gets lost.
The Avalanche comes in three models, the 35, 55 and 65 with storage capacities of 31.3, 49.7, and 62.1 quarts, respectively.
The 35 and 55 models have four reversible skid/non-skid feet for use on any surface. The Avalanche 65 model has all-terrain wheels for easy maneuvering, as well as a stainless steel locking plate for maximum security.
All Avalanche coolers come with a limited 7-year warranty.
