The Fiat Scudo is the product of a joint venture between the Fiat Group and the PSA (Citroen-Peugeot) Group.
The van proved an immediate success when it was launched in 1996. The second series arrived in 2007, featuring a cargo compartment that, considering the vehicle’s size, was unusually spacious, square-shaped, and ideal for the installation of Syncro System van racking.
The Scudo panel van comes in 3 different sizes.
Let’s take a look at this first Scudo racking system. The Syncro team began by protecting the walls and doors of this cargo compartment with painted steel panels, and covering the floor with a 12 mm thick, marble-look, plywood floor liner.
The racking on the left includes drawers with telescopic, ball-bearing runners, pull-out case trays with metal component cases, a case transport compartment, shelves with non-slip mats and dividers and a top section formed by cabinets of containers made from PMMA – the same practical, tough and transparent material used to make aircraft windows – so you can see exactly what’s inside.
Moving over to the right of the van, the racking consists of more transparent containers with Syncro’s exclusive flush front design and automatic latch mechanism.
The interior of this Scudo is also protected by galvanised and painted steel bodywork liners and a floor panel in 12 mm thick, marble-look, resin-bonded, birch plywood.
The racking configuration on the left comprises two floor-level compartments (including one with a door), six shelves with aluminium dividers, and a full-length top tray with rear access door for long objects.
The configuration on the right consists of five high-strength steel drawers with telescopic ball-bearing runners, two pull-out trays with four metal components cases and a shelf at the top.
One of the priorities in planning any racking system for the Scudo, and for any other van for that matter, is to optimise the use of available space.
These photos show a Scudo racking system limited to the left of the van, with most of the floor left free for cargo.
The configuration comprises metal drawers, a vice bench, shelves, removable plastic containers, a full-length top shelf for long objects, a case transport compartment and a paper roll holder. The van’s right side wall is fitted with a cable holder, a silicone cartridge rack and a soap dispenser.
To protect your van’s interior against the dents and scratches caused by impacts with heavy cargo and to save you costly repair bills, Syncro System supplies floor and bodywork liners, wheel arch liners, window grilles and various other accessories.
If you don’t have enough room in the back of your Scudo and need to carry more equipment on its roof, check out Syncro’s vast range of roof racks and ladder racks for the Scudo. These robust but lightweight products are made from aluminium and steel and feature Syncro’s exclusive Ultrasilent profile that dramatically reduces noise and vibration when travelling at speed.
