The van seen in this photo gallery is a large, L4H3 variant of the Volkswagen Crafter, a great choice of vehicle with plenty of space for a customised racking solution capable of satisfying all user needs. The customer in this case is a company that specialises in domestic and industrial plumbing and air conditioning. The racking solution seen here includes a work bench for minor repairs and an abundance of storage for everything that could possibly be needed on site.
As is always the case in Syncro racking centres, the first step here was to fit robust interior liners. Without adequate protection, thin bodywork panels are always liable to cuts, dents and eventually to rust. The various surfaces of this VW Crafter have been treated in different ways by Syncro System.
The left of this VW Crafter serves as storage for tools and as a work area for minor jobs. Syncro’s patented fold-away vice bench with exclusive opening and closing mechanism adds functionality to the van by providing a practical work surface. The rest of the wall is fully equipped, with two floor-level compartments with lift-up doors and an open compartment with a lashing strap for tool case transport, five shelves with top-pivot doors and the same number of open configurable shelves with space dividers and non-slip mats, and two rows of Multibox tilting and pull-out transparent containers, a patented product that stands out for its flush design and automatic latch mechanism. At the very top, the racking is completed by a full-length top tray for carrying particularly long objects.
The racking on the right of this plumber’s Crafter stands out for one of the characteristics most commonly requested in van racking systems:
Two types of container are found on this wall. First come Syncro’s patented removable containers in blue plastic, 58 of which are securely installed on shelves with dedicated frames. These containers are simple to remove and come with a holder at the front for labels to list their contents (downloadable free of charge here). Also on this side are 26 transparent containers, some tilting, some pull-out.
Ladders are among the items of equipment most frequently needed in the plumbing and air conditioning trade. Unfortunately, they tend to take up a lot of space in the back of a van. You can, of course, ask Syncro to install a ladder slide on your van’s roof, but if you prefer to keep your ladder out of the rain and away from prying eyes, Syncro System has another solution: an under-roof ladder rack that fixes to the ceiling of your van and leaves the floor completely free. This accessory consists of two brackets with lashing straps, one at the front and one at the rear of the cargo compartment, and a shuttle with an automatic travel stop and adjustable extension.
A well-equipped Crafter like this could not do without a selection of cargo carrying accessories – a super-functional category of products that are extremely popular with customers. This Crafter is fitted with:
