The economical, small to mid-size Nissan Vanette, in its various versions, was once one of the most popular light commercials on the road, despite its somewhat Spartan design. After it entered the orbit of Renault, however, Nissan abandoned its own van production for a number of years and limited itself to selling re-badged Renault vehicles. The company returned to the small-medium van market in 2009 with the NV200.
This modern little van boasts a good size cargo compartment for its compact overall dimensions.
The NV200, however, suffers from the same problem that afflicts all vans: the bodywork of the cargo compartment is inadequately protected, and shifting or falling cargo can easily strike the van’s delicate body panels. This results in the sort of dents we so often see on working vans, and eventually leads to cracks in the paint and rust in the metal underneath.
Damage of this kind is not just unsightly, but extremely costly to repair.
The floor of the NV200 is not particularly robust either, and without suitable protection can easily be scratched and dented by protruding parts and moving equipment.
Ever since the NV200 first appeared, the Syncro Group has offered 12 mm thick birch plywood floor liners with a marble-look resin or rubber-coated surface as well as floor liners in aluminium tread plate and bodywork liners in aluminium, galvanised and painted steel or honeycomb plastic.
The Syncro range also includes liners for the bulkhead behind the cab, the wheel arches and the doors, along with protective grilles for the rear windows.
Syncro floor liners for the NV200 are produced on sophisticated CNC machines using lightweight but tough and long-lasting materials.
They cost a whole lot less than a visit to a body repair shop and help maintain the resale value of your van for the future. So, in the long run, protecting your NV200 with Syncro liners can save you a lot of money!
