There’s always a first time. After nearly thirty years of experience in van racking, Syncro System recently accepted and neatly overcame a new challenge: to design and install a system of racking and accessories in an all-electric van.
The vehicle in question was an ID Buzz Cargo from Volkswagen, a model that was only launched in 2023. This particular van came straight to our workshops to be upgraded into a mobile workshop. The ID Buzz Cargo is characterised by a powerful but ecological all-electric drive system. It also represents a good compromise when it comes to long-distance capabilities and a cargo compartment large enough to serve as a mobile workshop for on-site operations. So let’s take a closer look at how Syncro went about transforming this VW ID Buzz Cargo.
As always, the first thing the Syncro team did with this ID Buzz was to line its interior. The bodywork of all vans needs to be properly protected against dents and scratches to extend their working life and avoid costly repair bills! One of the features of the ID Buzz is a plywood cargo floor that does not need the addition of a floor liner. Racking can be fixed directly to the original floor. Nevertheless, should users wish to reinforce the original surface, Syncro System offers a wide range of marble-look resin and rubber coated plywood floor liners, and aluminium models too.
The van’s rear doors were lined with steel panels to provide a robust base for the accessories and to protect the original door panels during loading and unloading operations.
Despite the compact dimensions of this van, the amazing flexibility of Syncro racking made it easy to find a great custom solution for the needs of its owner. The left side of this service engineer’s VW ID Buzz Cargo is fitted with:
The solution on the right of this service engineer’s ID Buzz is a great example of how to save floor space. The only racking as such is a pair of compact cabinets of Multibox pull-out transparent containers. This patented product takes up very little room in the back of the van and leaves the floor beneath free for cargo.
Cargo carrying accessories: the rear-facing side panel on the left of the van is fitted with a fire extinguisher bracket and a rack for silicone cartridges and nozzles; the right wall is fitted with a milled rail with Airline holes for use with lashing straps, rings or cargo bars; the bulkhead is fitted with two sections of Syncroblock slider bar, which is compatible with many different accessories, including the cable holder seen here.
Cleaning accessories: our technicians installed a handwash kit consisting of a water tank with tap and a paper roll holder on the left rear door.
Other accessories: a first aid kit occupies very little space on the right wall of the ID Buzz.
Security accessories: the van’s rear doors are fitted with a high-security lock, an excellent deterrent against potential thieves.
A roof rack can greatly increase your van’s carrying capacity, especially if you drive a small model.
Syncro’s technicians fitted this VW ID Buzz Cargo with a roof rack consisting of aluminium cross bars, side fences and a rear loading roller. The front cross bar is equipped with Syncro’s patented Ultrasilent profile, which breaks up the air flow and reduces noise and vibration inside the cab for a more comfortable driving experience.
