Given the way this van is going to be used, it was particularly important to protect the interior against damp, dents and scratches.
The customer chose to fit a birch plywood floor liner
with a dark brown resin surface and painted steel panels
for the walls and doors. The right-side wheel arch is protected by a tailor-made plywood panel (front) and aluminium panelling (top).
Racking is installed only on the left of the van
, and does not cover the entire wall. This leaves plenty of free floor space and ensures easy access from the van’s rear and side doors.
The racking consists of:
a floor-level compartment with a lift-and-rotate door over the wheel arch; the wheel arch itself has not been covered since it is already enclosed by the racking
four large metal drawers and another two shallow ones; inside, all the drawers are fitted with non-slip mats and internal space dividers to keep tools and other small items tidy and instantly to hand when needed, saving time and money for the van’s owner
two shelves with top-pivot doors bottom profiles
a top tray
The racking side panel facing the van’s rear doors is fitted with a paper roll holder
. Thanks to the equally spaced holes in Syncro Ultra
side panels, this holder and any other accessories can be moved to another position at any time.
The floor and roof in the centre of the van are fitted with rails across the cargo compartment, for holding vertical cargo bars.
Syncro’s aluminium cargo bars
have an Airline profile milled into the face and are covered in rubber on the narrow sides to avoid scratching the material they support. Rails can also be fitted to the van’s walls. Used in conjunction with cargo bars, they provide a great way to divide up cargo space without installing permanent partitions, and help hold cargo securely in place.
Cargo rails and bars are an excellent solution for transporting large, fragile objects like glass doors and windows.
