The Berlingo from the French automotive house Citroen
is historically the first multi-space van to arrive on the market. It was conceptualized to both transport goods and passengers – with the front stylized more like a sedan, while the rear part extended for loading materials or carrying people. While the dimensions were kept contained, it offered a good balance of size, carrying capacity, driving comfort, practicality, and also aesthetic appeal. It's not surprising that plumbing / heating and cooling companies often choose the Berlingo as their service vehicle.
This Berlingo conversion was carried out by the Syncro technical team for a company that installs and services gas units, burners, heating and cooling, and generally everything related to the heating/cooling and plumbing systems. The first step in this conversion was mounting the interior protective paneling on the floor and walls. The extremely durable wooden floor panel
ensures a perfectly level loading floor, protection of the original metal floor and creates a strong, solid surface on which to mount the racking components. To protect the walls and doors against everyday wear and tear, we mounted laser-cut, galvanized steel wall and door paneling
, guaranteeing a fast and perfect fit.
The racking components on the left-hand side consist of a wheel arch base
with door panel, creating valuable storage space around the wheel arch . Above the base frame, we fixed two drawer units
with five metal drawers – each one mounted on telescoping ball-bearing guides, and complete with rubber mats, aluminum dividers and individual automatic locking mechanisms. At the very top of the racking unit, we mounted two rows, making a total of 13 removable polypropylene bins
The right-hand side racking solution consists of a wheel arch base with rotating hinge door panel for wide-open access to the storage compartment. Above that, we placed three water tank with spout and a 230 mm paper towel roll
holder. Mounted to the left-hand side racking unit, is a vertical drawer unit with six forward-tilting drawers and our exclusive aluminum spray can holder. Along the bulkhead, we mounted our safe transport system with aluminum track
, strap and clasp for tying down even heavy and/or bulky cargo.
On the right-hand side, we installed our universal fire-extinguisher bracket, which quickly adapts to any type of extinguisher. Last but certainly not least, is the bright lighting in the cargo area, ensured by a powerful LED ceiling light
, mounted above the rear doors.
The Syncro team completed another conversion knowing that the solution perfectly fits the needs of their client in the plumbing and heating and cooling business.
