Whether you own a large van or a small one, Syncro System racking can satisfy your needs and help you work more efficiently. This page illustrates two very different vans, both fitted with Syncro Ultra
racking, personalised for heating engineers
. The first vehicle we shall see, a Ford Custom
, is the larger of the two. The second is a compact Fiat Fiorino
If you are looking for racking solutions for heating engineers, take a look too at this Ford Courier
, this Nissan NV300

or the Fiat Fiorino
, go to the pages dedicated to these models, where you can see customised liners, racking systems, accessories and roof racks.
Whatever model of van you drive, and whatever job you do, one this is certain: you need to fit tough, impact-resistant liners in the cargo compartment to safeguard your van’s re-sale vale and avoid the costly consequences of dents and rust.
Both the vans seen on this page are fitted with simple but effective protection in the form of a plywood floor liner
with a marble-look surface. On request, Syncro installers can also fit custom-made door, wall and roof panels, bulkhead and wheel arch liners and even window grilles.
racking lets you fit horizontal elements wherever you want between the system’s characteristic perforated side panels. The side panel holes can be used to secure not just racking elements but many kinds of accessories too, to make your van even more functional.
The racking solution in this Ford Custom covers both side walls and the bulkhead. The van is also equipped with a roof rack
with an Ultrasilent profile under the front-most cross-bar.
The side walls
Both of the van’s walls feature exactly the same racking configuration, consisting of an open floor-level compartment with a horizontal profile over the wheel arch, three shelves
with raised back panels and non-slip mats and a row of tilting transparent containers
at the top.
This solution’s characteristics:
Reduced depth means more free space in the middle of the van.
Super-tough transparent containers are ideal for carrying spares and other small parts.
The racking on the bulkhead is deeper than that along the sides. The column starts with an open compartment at floor level, complete with a cargo lashing strap
. This is a great way to transport tool cases and other materials safely. Above are four large drawers and a top shelf.
On the side of the racking nearest the side door is a bar rack and two bars with plastic hooks for holding all sorts of small and medium size tools.
This small but superbly equipped Fiorino has everything the heating engineer needs to work efficiently.
The left side racking provides plenty of storage capacity and consists of:
a floor-level compartment with a door
an open floor-level compartment with a retaining strap
two metal drawers
a top tray
two useful accessories on the side of the racking: a spray can rack and a silicone cartridge rack complete with holes for the nozzles
The racking on this side of the van is not so deep and comprises an open floor-level compartment and a total of eight pull-out transparent containers
arranged in four rows. Each of these containers can be partitioned into separate internal compartments by means of space dividers. A top shelf and a steel hook on the side panel complete this racking column.
The bulkhead is fitted with a cargo retaining system consisting of a bar and strap with sliding fittings. This simple system can be used to secure loads of different sizes.
The van’s cab
This Fiat Fiorino racking solution is distinguished by the presence of a cab “Organizer”
on the passenger seat. This extremely useful accessory is designed to hold invoice pads, rubber stamps, note pads, mobiles, stationary and all the other small items that otherwise slide around on the dashboard or seat. The perfect way to eliminate clutter and keep everything tidy in the cab!
