(Combined house/platform shown)
Atlas O now offers the perfect companion structure for its wildly successful series of billboard reefers--the icing platform and adjoining ice house.
Before mechanical refrigeration, ice was the primary method of cooling perishables. Loading blocks of ice into the rooftop hatches of solid reefer trains would be a daunting task were it not for the construction of icing platforms that brought the ice up to car height for speedier icing and re-icing of the trains. Icing platforms on the major refrigerator routes were often quite extensive and some measured up to 50 car lengths. The ice house was usually attached to the platforms to provide an ice supply that could be accessed quickly.
Designed for modular construction--any length can be created by combining additional platform kits
Raised platform that will accommodate two 40' reefer cars
Lower level platform for side door loading
Overall Icing Platform dimensions are 37"L x 4"W x 6"H
Companion Ice House has dimensions of 14"L x 6"W x 9"H
