M.KI Thermo truck box body
Truck Tipper with thermal insulation


September 2020 – Schmitz Cargobull now also offers the M.KI tipper truck body with thermal insulation, expanding its portfolio with a further thermal variant. The thermally insulated body has a capacity of 18 m3 and is ideally designed to transport smaller quantities of tarmac.

M.KI Thermo truck box body

Road construction companies have seen a rise in the requirements for tarmac transport over recent years. The body has to be thermally insulated (in Germany) and must include a heat-resistant cover to prevent heat loss from the top. Before tipping, the quality of the tarmac must be able to be checked with a valid temperature measurement. 

That is why Schmitz Cargobull now also offers both the S.KI tipper semi-trailer and the M.KI tipper truck body with thermal insulation. The thermal insulation has only added around 195 kg in weight to the trailer. The smaller volumes, improved agility and manoeuvrability are particularly handy in confined traffic conditions, as is often the case on construction sites. 



The M.KI tipper truck body with full thermal insulation incorporates Schmitz Cargobull’s extensive experience in the field of temperature-controlled goods transport. The body shape design ensures a low centre of gravity along with the necessary driving and tipping stability. The premium, temperature-resistant body cover has an electric sliding tarpaulin, which can be opened and closed safely and conveniently from ground level via remote control. The model range includes bodies with different floor thicknesses and a side wall height of 1,460 mm. Various rear wall designs round out the range.
