Unlike other large vans, the Iveco Daily features a load-bearing chassis. This makes it ideal for carrying heavy loads and for the installation of Luton bodies, tipper bodies and other conversions.
The panel van body is therefore not structural but simply bolted on to the chassis. The Daily is also one of the few light commercials still available only with rear wheel drive. These important characteristics make the Daily extremely strong but mean that the threshold of the cargo compartment is about 10 cm higher than those of its competitors. Carrying capacity is slightly reduced too.
The Daily panel van is available in four lengths and three heights. The cargo compartment of all versions is generous in size and square in shape, meaning that the Daily makes an excellent choice for technical assistance, maintenance and construction companies.
The Syncro catalogue includes a wide range of shelves, drawers, work benches and tool cases for the Daily, as well as useful accessories like generator slides, interior lights, handwash kits and more, to help you configure your van exactly as you want.
Here we see a Daily fitted out by Syncro System for a company that services technical equipment and performs chemical analyses.
The first stage of this project consisted of installing a floor liner in 12 mm thick, marble-look plywood, protecting the bulkhead with the same material, and lining the doors and walls with painted steel panels.
The racking on the left of the van features three floor-level compartments, various configurable shelves, two plain shelves with doors, an open shelf supporting a compressor and a generator, four steel drawers on ball-bearing runners, a 25 mm thick plywood work bench with its own LED light and electrical power sockets, a pull-out vice bench with a steel vice, a locker with key and a full-length top shelf for long items like pipes, rods and cable channels.
The racking on the right of the van starts with two floor-level compartments, both with lift-and-rotate doors (a Syncro patent), a total of fourteen steel drawers, a case tray with a professional case in ABS and aluminium, another work bench and a sink with its own cabinet. Above this racking are cabinets of tilting transparent containers – a great way to carry small parts as you can see immediately what’s inside. Above the workbench but under the cabinets is another LED light.
This workshop is completed by useful roof accessories: an extractor fan, an aircon unit and four powerful LED ceiling lights.
The van also has a handwash kit consisting of a plastic water can, a soap dispenser and a paper roll holder, a first aid case and, on the bulkhead, two bars with cargo lashing straps and sliding fittings.
Having protected the bodywork and roof of this Daily with honeycomb plastic liners and reinforced the floor with a marble-look, birch plywood liner, the Syncro team went on to install racking on all three usable sides of the cargo compartment, making full use of all the space available. The complete racking system includes seven floor-level compartments, all with bottom profiles at the front, thirty shelves with metal space dividers and one shelf with a gas-spring door. The system also includes transparent containers, of the tilting type on the left and of the pull-out type on the right, a particularly practical storage solution as contents can be identified instantly and the containers themselves can be removed easily for access and refilling.
Four sections of milled aluminium rail have been fixed to the front of the racking to allow cargo to be lashed in place with hooks or straps. The whole interior of the van is extremely well lit thanks to four compact LED ceiling lights.
If you need to load machines or trolleys into your Daily, Syncro System’s folding ramps are exactly what you need.
Syncro’s folding ramps range from 300 kg to 1800 kg in load capacity. These strong but lightweight loading ramps are made from aluminium only or aluminium and steel in the case of higher capacity models.
The van seen here is a 2014 Daily L2 H2 with a plywood floor liner, painted steel bodywork liners and a ramp with a load capacity of 600 kg.
The Daily is not immune to the sort of bodywork damage caused by cargo sliding around when the van is moving or falling over during loading and unloading. To avoid you having to pay for expensive bodywork repairs, Syncro System offers a wide range of floor, bodywork and wheel arch liners, window grilles and other accessories.
Syncro System’s lightweight and robust liners all come ready for fitting and can be installed quickly and easily.
The Syncro System Group also produces a full range of roof racks and ladder racks for the Daily. And don’t forget! The Ultrasilent aluminium profile, developed and patented by Syncro’s R&D department, keeps wind noise, vibration and fuel consumption down to a minimum.
