UNICAT bodies—distinguished by the sum of their details.
The very first UNICAT bodies were completely manufactured from sandwich panels featuring surface layers of fibreglass-reinforced polyester (GF-UP).
In those days even the floor plate got a GF-UP top layer, inside and out. The panels were connected by externally and internally bonded angle sections made of the same material so that corrosion problems and thermal stresses were ruled out by the design.
Even the oldest bodies are still in operation today, and many of them have seen the entire world.
The obvious advantages of sandwich panels in the meantime have made this material the accepted standard, but connecting the panels to make a sturdy body free of cold spots calls for more.
UNICAT floor plates are reinforced with a tubular steel frame which permits a strong and durable connection with the floor assembly.
Sandwich panels are assembled at UNICAT without using wooden interfaces, which would make themselves noticeable as cold spots in practical operation. Of course, this gives rise to much greater effort for assembly, but it pays off in daily use.
UNICAT doors and windows have reinforced corners, special hinges with theft-proof fittings, double seals, insulating toughened glass and multiple locking mechanisms.
Today, UNICAT not only produces simple bodies in standard and customer-specific designs; for many years the product range also has included side drawers, swing-outs, flip-outs, folding roofs and lifting roofs.
