In 1962, FG Products’ pioneering spirit was born when we built the very first insulated bulkhead for the Refrigerated Transport Industry. FG patented the very first Insulated Bulkhead with a two temp fan kit in 1967, giving transporters a multi-temp solution at an affordable price. Generations later the Insulated Bulkhead has taken on new forms, evolving into the products used today.
FG’s next major innovation came in 1974 with the introduction of the Center Partition Concept.
Dividing the vehicle into two or three lanes with configuration flexibility was clearly an advantage to distributors. It wasn't until the late 1980’s, when multi-temp refrigeration systems began to enter the market, that the Center Partition Concept became popular.
Today the Center Partition System has the flexibility to accommodate all types of distribution needs. It is especially popular among Foodservice Distributors who have many smaller deliveries with increasing diversity.
To help refrigeration units operate more efficiently, FG Products developed the Return Air Bulkhead in 1981. By separating the warmer return air from the chilled air coming out of the refrigeration unit, better temperature control is achieved and more accurate temperatures readings are monitored. This Return Air Bulkhead was patented in 1983.
Our history has made us the company to watch as the Refrigerated Transportation Industry evolves.
