The Iveco Daily is a large panel van that, thanks to its tough reinforced chassis, is particularly adapted to carrying heavy loads.
With a range of models touting an impressive maximum load volume, the Daily is one of the more popular vehicles for those who are looking to transform their van into fully functional mobile workshop.
Over the years, the Syncro group has transformed thousands of Iveco Dailys into mobile workshops for clients around the globe – each conversion carefully designed to meet the individual needs of our diverse clients.
On this page, we see an example of a 2014 Daily Iveco L3 H2 converted with shelving units, containers and drawers for a heating and plumbing company.
The first step in the conversion, was the installation of the floor panel. On this Daily, we utilized our 12 mm marine plywood floor panel with non-slip resin-coated upper surface and stainless steel reinforced borders at the van doors.
The plywood floor not only protects the original van floor, but creates a perfectly flat loading surface and a solid base for mounting the racking equipment.
The 2014 Daily, like all vans, comes with minimal interior protection against daily wear and tear. Because of this, the Syncro team, mounted the very robust 0,8 mm galvanized steel paneling to the side walls and doors. To provide extra protection to the bulkhead, we mounted another 12mm plywood panel.
The racking unit on the left-hand side consists of two storage compartments. The base frame placed over the wheel arch includes a front door panel with the exclusive Syncro sliding hinge design. Thanks to the Syncro strap and clasp system, the open bottom compartment is ideal for transporting tool and utility cases.
Above the closed wheel arch base frame, we mounted a drawer unit with four sliding trays that house the Syncro portable utility cases. The versatile modular system, complete with inner mix&match mini bins, not only makes it is easy to transport, retrieve and bring an enormous amount of small parts and fittings on site, but thanks to the telescoping glides, the cases can be opened and the contents retrieved while the cases remain conveniently locked in their trays.
The rest of the left-hand side conversion consists of 10 spacious storage shelves, all complete with non-slip rubber mats and aluminum dividers.
At the very top, we find the extra-long storage shelf with locking end flap, useful for transporting long materials such as tubes, rod and pipes.
The racking unit on the right-hand side of the Daily, consists of a wheel arch base frame with sliding hinged door panel. Above that, are five shelves with 39 removable polypropylene bins, each with the possibility of adding an aluminum divider.
At the top of the first part of the racking unit is a drawer unit with forward-tilting, clear plastic, automatic locking drawers. The clear plastic makes it easy to see the drawers’ contents without opening them.
This client chose to dedicate the space just inside the side door to extra storage space for equipment and material. Above the three large compartments, there is a final shelf with dividers.
Heating and plumbing contractors often need to cut, and work with tubes and other metal equipment. For this reason, we mounted a practical and robust folding worktop / vise mount, including automatic locking mechanism in both the open and closed positions, and telescoping leg support. To this, we mounted a 125 mm forged steel vise with rotating base and built-in pipe jaws.
Bright lighting is guaranteed, thanks to the three 10 W LED cold light ceiling lights.
All types and sizes of cargo can be blocked along the bulkhead thanks to the Syncro track and strap system consisting of an aluminum track and strap. A shorter steel track, to which a 4000 kg strap and clasp will be attached, can be seen on the end panel of the left-hand racking unit.
