The firm that owns this van installs and services heating and cooling systems for small, medium and large workplaces. The special water cooling and radiant heating systems they provide absorb very little energy and offer significant savings. Because the parts and equipment concerned are so bulky, the van had to be fitted out in a way that leaves plenty of free space for carrying cargo safely.
The work carried out on the Ducato seen here was completed in the following stages:
As with all vans, the first thing Syncro did with this Ducato was to protect its bodywork. The floor was covered with a beech plywood liner with a marble-look surface, while the walls and doors were lined from top to bottom with painted steel panels. Thanks to this protection, the van’s cargo compartment is now far better able to withstand impact, dust and humidity, and the van will enjoy a far longer life.
To satisfy the need for space to transport large equipment, the two walls were left almost completely free. The only items installed were:
While the van’s walls were dedicated to transporting heavy objects, the bulkhead was equipped with a storage system for tools, spares and sundries.
Proceeding from the bottom up, this extremely functional section of racking includes a case compartment with bar, strap and ratchet tensioner for securing tool and component cases; three shelves of large, removable plastic containers and another two shelves of smaller containers. Each of these bin-type containers can be fitted with internal space dividers to keep materials in separate compartments.
In addition to the cargo retaining systems on the side walls, essential for the safe transport of heavy items without them sliding around or falling, this heating and cooling firm’s Ducato was also fitted with:
On this Ducato, the roof provides valuable extra cargo capacity. Given the need to carry systems and components, often in bulky packaging, the van’s roof was fitted with a Syncro roof rack, complete with rear roller for easy loading and unloading, side fences to stop material falling off, and Syncro’s unique Ultrasilent profile for minimum noise and maximum comfort on the road.
Finally, to stop thieves breaking into the van and stealing valuable materials, the Syncro team fitted the doors with a pair of UFO security locks. These locks are made from hardened and tempered steel and offer a high level of security for cargo.
