This page illustrates a racking system in a Volkswagen Caddy operated by a company that repairs and services water mains
. The van has been fitted with racking only on the left side, while the right is only equipped with a cargo retaining system. The bulkhead is completely free apart from one accessory. If you’d like to learn more about this system, read on.

Like all vans, the Caddy needs to be properly protected against the sort of damage that can lead to huge repair bills and dramatically reduce its re-sale value. Syncro liners are cut to exactly the right size and shape and are pre-drilled for quick and easy installation. The Caddy seen here page is fitted with a floor liner
made from birch plywood with a marble-look surface coating.

Whenever a van owner decides to install racking along one side wall only, leaving the rest of the floor free for large items of equipment or material, the side chosen is always that opposite the side door.
This van is no exception, so the racking has been secured to the left side wall
. The system consists of
an open floor-level compartment with a lashing strap at the front for securing equipment, boxes, and frequently needed tool cases
above this, two configurable shelves, both with non-slip mats in the bottom and both equipped with space dividers for creating separate compartments
at the top, another smaller shelf, along with two rows of pull-out transparent containers, two large and four small. Containers of this type are really practical for carrying fasteners and small parts. Because you can see immediately what’s inside, there’s no risk of running out of important items, and keeping everything tidy becomes so much easier.
All the accessories in the Syncro System catalogue are designed to make working on the move easier and safer. Each one, however, also serves a specific purpose of its own. This particular Caddy is fitted with:
-a paper roll holder
on the bulkhead, a simple but extremely useful accessory for cleaning and drying hands and tools at the work site
-a bar rack
in the space between the racking and the bulkhead, a great way to carry sharp tool bits safely
-a bar with a cargo lashing strap and sliding fittings
, supported at one end by another vertical bar to ensure rigidity
-an inverter with a battery protection device
, mounted on the side panel facing the van’s rear doors and connected to a set of power sockets to provide autonomous electrical power in all logistic situations.
