Designing and fitting van racking systems requires experience and skill. The aim is to adapt the space inside (and on top of) your vehicle to transport all the materials you need and to transform your van into an efficient mobile workshop. Before you decide on your ideal racking configuration with the help of Syncro System, the leaders in equipment for vans, you first need to consider the key characteristics of your van.
The size of the cargo compartment is of fundamental importance. Its height, width and length determine how racking can be arranged and how you can use the van in future. Another important factor is your van’s load capacity. Even though the racking supplied by Syncro System is made from tough, lightweight materials, all the tools and equipment stored inside can easily exceed 1000 kg in weight.
Let’s consider the example of a racking system for a small van. This could easily include three drawers
located under a robust floor liner in aluminium tread plate (or marine-grade plywood). In this type of system, the raised floor serves a dual purpose: it conceals the drawers underneath and it provides a robust supporting surface for whatever racking configuration suits your requirements. If you need to carry around lots of small parts and tools, the Syncro team will probably recommend a racking solution with shelves
, drawers, and a tool case compartment
, open or enclosed by doors.
If you own a large, high-roof van, you will want to move around easily and stand upright to carry out minor adjustments and repairs “on the spot”. In this case, the ideal racking system will include work surfaces installed on top of lockers or shelves and, perhaps, accessories like vice benches
, handwash kits, loading ramps
and even drawers for computers and printers.
Syncro System, the leading name in van equipment, has been developing superior racking systems for working vans since 1996 and offers a wide range of accessories for lighting, cargo security and easy loading too.
