The customer who commissioned this racking project is an electrician who uses his van not just for work, but for his hobby too. The requirements of installing and maintaining electrical systems are therefore complicated by those of his favourite sport: cycling. The Syncro team nevertheless found a way to combine both and completely satisfy the customer. The van is fitted with a custom-made underfloor storage system with a cut-away in the centre for carrying a bicycle and securing it with straps and hooks. This leaves the underfloor section almost fully available for storage, apart from the few centimetres taken up by the cut-away. The bicycle can be carried without touching the van’s roof, and the cut-away is custom-made to stop it moving when the van is on the road. The underfloor storage accessible from the rear doors and from the right side door consists of plain shelves for carrying long objects, while that accessible from the left side door houses a metal drawer with a non-slip mat and internal space dividers. Both the original floor and the raised floor are covered in marble-look plywood floor panels.
Given the special formation of the raised floor, with a central cut-away running for its full length, walkable access to the van’s interior is somewhat restricted. For this reason, the most frequently used drawers and shelves have been arranged face outwards and can be accessed easily without having to enter the van. The racking on the left side starts with a sideways-opening drawer cabinet with four drawers. Entering the van gives you access to three shelves and a top tray.
Opening the Combo’s left side door gives access to an underfloor drawer, four pull-out containers in transparent plastic for sundries and electrical spares, an open compartment for electrical equipment that can be plugged directly into a power socket on a small electrical system connected to the van’s battery and, finally, a small top shelf.
Behind the right side door are three drawers and two pull-out trays containing Galaxy clear plastic cases. The underfloor compartment at the right side door is ideal for storing all kinds of objects, tools and equipment.
In addition to the hook and strap system in the middle of the floor for securing the bicycle, this electrician’s Combo is also fitted with:
