The Expert is a medium size van from the French manufacturer Peugeot.
The Peugeot Expert proved highly successful after its launch in 1996. The second series was introduced in 2007 and saw a radical change in lines, with a squarer body more like that of alternative vehicles in the same segment.
The current version was launched in 2016 and boasts a large load compartment for the van’s size, with a regular shape that makes it ideal for the installation of Syncro System racking.
Lighter, stronger and more practical than ever, the 2016 Expert is based on Peugeot’s latest modular chassis concept.
The panel van comes in a choice of 3 sizes: a brand-new compact version of only 4.61 m, the standard version of 4.96 m and a long version of 5.31 m.
A low overall height of only 1.9 metres allows this van to enter even low headroom garages.
The Syncro team’s first step in fitting out this Expert was to protect the floor with a liner in 12 mm thick marble-look birch plywood. The walls and doors were then lined with laser-cut painted steel panels
The racking on the left of the van starts with two floor-level compartments, one with a lift-and-rotate door
and the other with a cargo retaining strap
. Above these are two steel drawers
with internal space dividers, self-locking mechanisms in the handles and telescopic ball-bearing runners, two shelves
with space dividers and three shelves of removable polypropylene containers. A full-length top tray for long items completes the configuration.
The racking in this Expert is complemented by a series of useful accessories: a paper roll holder
, a silicone cartridge rack, cargo bars and straps with sliding fittings
, adjustable metal hooks and a powerful LED
Let’s look more closely at the racking installed along the left and right side walls of this 2016 Peugeot Expert.
On the left, at floor level, we have two compartments, one of which is equipped with a shuttle system for securing tool cases
. Further up are four metal drawers with automatic locking mechanisms, then four shelves.
Moving over the right of the Expert, we find a narrower configuration with just one floor-level compartment, four metal drawers and two shelves.
The van’s equipment is completed by 10 steel hooks and a bar and strap lashing system with sliding fittings
The Syncro catalogue contains a wide range of floor
and bodywork liners
, wheel arch covers, window grilles and other accessories to protect your van’s bodywork against impacts by heavy cargo.
Liners are made from tough but lightweight materials: plywood, plastic or aluminium.
All liners come pre-cut and ready for quick and sure installation.
We all know that there is never enough room inside any van! Luckily, Syncro lets you make full use of your vehicle’s roof with a range of roof racks and ladder racks for the Expert.
Syncro roof bars and roof racks are made from tough but lightweight materials, are GS certified and are extremely silent even at speed thanks to Syncro’s unique ULTRASILENT noise-reducing profile.
