Syncro has installed a large number of racking systems in the VW Crafter. On this page we present a good example of a van transformation completed by Syncro System for a customer who works in central heating and plumbing. The van is a large capacity L3H2 model. The Syncro team began by installing an almost complete set of custom-made interior liners before going on to fit racking along both side walls while leaving as much space as possible in the middle of the floor. This last objective was achieved thanks to the use of shallower racking on the right side. The transformation was completed by adding a selection of cargo retaining accessories to allow the customer to carry everything he needs in a safe and orderly manner.
The first step in nearly all racking projects is to protect the interior of the van using lightweight but tough liners.
In this Crafter, the floor is protected by a plywood liner with a marble-look surface. The same material, in the form of panels cut and shaped to follow the contours of the bodywork, also covers the bulkhead behind the cab. The doors and side walls are lined with steel panels that brighten up the interior of the van and are easy to clean and extremely tough too.
The racking on the left of the van is designed to hold an assortment of tools, materials and consumables along with cases of all shapes and sizes. In particular, the configuration consists of:
The racking on the right side consists entirely of transparent containers. Syncro System’s patented design gives these containers an extremely shallow footprint. This means they take up very little floor space in the van – little more than the wheel arch in fact – despite providing impressive storage capacity.
The various cabinets contain a total of thirty containers of different sizes, all of which tilt outwards to open and can be removed completely if needed. The largest containers are fitted with internal space dividers and can be used to carry hardware or spare parts of various sizes. The great advantage of this form of storage is that it is completely transparent, so there is no need to open anything to see what is inside. This means less time wasted searching for what you need and virtually no risk of running out of essential parts!
The VW Crafter on this page is equipped with a number of accessories to make it more practical as a working van.
