Peugeot Boxer van fitted with external side and roof racks for transporting glass panels and windows

When it comes to transporting glass safely, glass racks and glass frails for vans are essential tools for businesses looking to protect their valuable materials and streamline their transportation processes. Their combination of safety, convenience, and versatility offers a practical solution for businesses involved in the glass and glazing industry.

Internal glass frails for maximising storage capacity

Internal glass frails are specifically designed to transport glass materials inside commercial vans. Not only do they allow for carrying glass safely and efficiently, but also maximise the vehicle's carrying capacity.

Glass frails for vans are constructed using heavy duty yet lightweight aluminum materials.  Additionally, the parts of the frail that come in contact with the glass panels are covered with rubber. This rubber acts as a protective layer, preventing scratches and marks on the glass that could occur during transportation. Furthermore, the load area is fully ply-lined, and the floor has a non-slip overlay for added safety. Tool-storing shelves can also be added.

External side frails and roof racks for glass transport

External racks are specifically designed to ensure the safe transportation of glass on the exterior of commercial vans and trucks. These systems consist of lightweight frames and structures made from durable materials such as aluminum or steel, which are securely installed onto the vehicle's body.

Typically, the external glass racks include a glass frail fitted to the side of the van, along with roof rack systems for additional storage options. Furthermore, the installation of gutter clamping mounting systems is also available to provide enhanced versatility. These racks offer a versatile solution that caters to different types of panel vans, providing secure external storage for glazing professionals. By utilising an external frail, businesses can make the most of their vehicle's internal space.

Carry glass safely in your van

Van glass racks offer various benefits when it comes to carrying glass units. With the proper installation and utilisation of glass frails, you will not only minimise the risk of breakage or accidents but also reduce the number of trips needed to deliver the materials.

Ensuring safety and security

Glass racks are designed to securely hold glass panels in place during transportation, preventing them from shifting or bumping into one another. This not only ensures the safety of the glass but also reduces the likelihood of breakage, saving businesses time and money on costly replacements.

Maximising space and efficiency

In addition to safety, glass racks for vans also offer convenience and efficiency. By organising and securing glass panels on the racks, businesses can maximise the space in their vans. Consequently, it allows them to transport more materials in a single trip. This not only streamlines the transportation process but also helps businesses increase their productivity and overall efficiency.

Versatility and customisation

Van glass racks and frails are versatile and can be customised to fit various types and sizes of glass materials. Whether transporting large mirrors, delicate glass panels, or heavy-duty glazing, there are racks available to meet the specific needs of different businesses and industries.
