Nothing finishes off the look of a rig like the bold look of chrome. Carrier Transicold now offers several ways to add bling to refrigeration and auxiliary power units (APUs) with the mirror finish that only chrome can bring. Carrier is a business unit of United Technologies Corp.

For the ComfortPro™ APU, Carrier dealers now offer two aftermarket chrome kits – a smooth chrome finish and a diamond-plate finish. The ComfortPro APU provides climate control – both heating and air conditioning – as well as AC power supply, truck battery charging, engine warming and optional shore-power connectivity.

Available either dealer-installed or do-it-yourself, the ComfortPro Chrome customization kits include a set of adhesive-backed exterior panels, and both take only minutes to install. Kit CP100 has flat panels made of chrome-plated 430 stainless steel, and Kit CP200 has chrome-plated aluminum panels with a tread pattern that perfectly matches the ComfortPro APU’s access panels.

When it comes to refrigeration units, Carrier’s standard single-temperature units in the new X2-Series are white with a black grille, trim and latches, however an optional package includes chrome latches for the access panels and a bright chrome grille that nicely contrasts with the unit’s black trim. The chrome package is an option available when ordering any unit in the X2-Series, Carrier’s new role models in single-temperature trailer refrigeration, featuring a modern appearance, reduced sound output and exceptional serviceability access.
