The VW Transporter is Volkswagen’s offering in the mid-size van segment. This compact, versatile van is a popular choice with tradesmen of all kinds. On this page you can see two different Syncro racking solutions for the Transporter L1H1. The first van is owned by an insulation business while the second is used by a multi-utility company to service water mains. Two very different jobs and two very different racking systems, but the same result: far greater efficiency, less time-wasting, a tidier van and a more professional image.
Step 1: the liners
This VW Transporter’s floor is protected by a resin-coated plywood liner that forms a perfectly flat walkable surface and protects the original floor against damage and humidity. The bulkhead is thoroughly protected by plywood liners with a marble-look finish.
Step 2: the racking
Racking is installed along both side walls. The racking on the left consists of two floor-level compartments, one with a door and the other with a shuttle-type case retaining system. Further up are three metal drawers and four plain shelves. The racking on this side finishes with a full-length top tray with a fold-down door at the back, customised to follow the contours of the Transporter’s side walls.
The racking on the right is particularly compact (with two-hole side panels at the bottom and a one-hole panel at the top) and consists of a floor-level compartment with a door and a large number of tilting transparent containers (eight large and sixteen small).
Step 3: the accessories
The side of the racking near the rear doors is equipped with:
The only liner in this Transporter is the floor liner, again in resin-coated plywood, which protects the floor panels beneath and provides an easy-to-clean surface.
Let’s have a closer look at the racking.
