In 2017, the Volkswagen Group decided to terminate its long-standing collaboration with Mercedes and produce its own large van. Volkswagen constructed a purpose-built factory in Poland to manufacture the new model. The resulting van is sold under two names: Volkswagen Crafter and MAN TGE.
The van is one of the largest on the market and is sold in two wheelbase variants, with a cargo capacity of up to 18.4 m³. Depending on version, length varies from 5,986 mm to 7,391 mm and height from 2,355 mm to a maximum of 2,835 mm.
The van’s generous cargo compartment permits large quantities of goods, equipment and tools to be carried.
As with all commercial vehicles, the TGE’s cargo compartment is inadequately protected. This means that heavy objects striking the walls can easily cause damage. Impacts of this type cause the dents we are all so familiar with and that, if not repaired quickly, lead to rust and, sooner or later, far higher repair costs.
Even the floor panels are not particularly strong and can be dented by unevenly distributed loads or heavy objects with protruding parts. Luckily, a Syncro floor liner, in plywood or aluminium, can easily prevent such damage and form a perfectly level surface, with no dips and ridges, for easy loading and unloading.
The Syncro System Group produces and supplies all the floor and interior liners you need to keep your TGE damage-free and preserve its value for many years to come.
and bulkhead liners for the TGE are made from 12 mm thick, marine-grade plywood with a marble-look resin or rubber surface, steel edging at the doors, and recessed cups for the anchor rings. Floor and bulkhead liners are also available in 2 + 1.8 mm thick aluminium tread plate.
Syncro wall and door liners
for the TGE are made from painted steel or from raw, anodised or chequer-plate aluminium, and come pre-shaped and pre-drilled, ready for fitting. Lightweight liners in honeycomb plastic are also available.
Syncro’s vast range of bodywork protection also includes liners for the bulkhead between the MAN TGE’s cargo compartment and cab, wheel arch liners in steel and plywood or steel and aluminium, rear window grilles and roof liners too.
Syncro floor and interior liners are a safe investment for you and your TGE: they cost far less than a visit to a bodywork repair shop and can be fitted quickly and easily. On top of this, they improve your professional image and preserve the value of your van for many years to come.
