Reefer Challenges and Solutions
Reefers with corrugated sides can present a challenge for fitting Airtabs. The best solution is to mount the Airtabs on the rear trailer door frame if it is wide enough to accomodate the product as shown in the picture below.
If the bulkhead is not wide enough, two Airtabs fit perfectly in the wide section of the trailer corrugations
To fit an Airtab into the narrow corrugation space, the side edges must be trimmed with hand shears. Be careful not to trim into the air-tight cavity of the Airtab as moisture could enter here. If this happens, the hole can be re sealed with white silicon.
