Not only does installing racking or shelving ensure that your van is well organised and looks professional on the job, it also keeps your load secure while on the move. We can advise on which internal storage solution is right for you and your business and help you manage the cost by spreading it over the term of the van lease.
In order to secure items such as hardware supplies and tools so that they aren’t loose in your van, we suggest that you invest in vehicle shelving or racking. There are many types of storage systems available that will suit those who need heavy duty storage or organisation for smaller components. We’re happy to advise if you aren’t certain which form of vehicle racking or shelving is the most suitable option for your van. Below we’ve listed and explained different forms of shelving and racking.
Linbins are one of the most useful forms of storage ever invented. They are plastic storage containers which are mounted on a rack in your van. They come in rows and are very effective at holding small items in place during transit. It’s possible to stack them without them distorting and even attach them to louvre panels where they’ll stay in place even if they’re fully loaded.
Louvre panels make it possible to add Linbin storage anywhere. They provide support for Linbins no matter how heavily you load them. Double sided version of louvre panels double your storage for the same amount of floor space while single sided panels are perfectly placed near to a wall.
Modular racking is very flexible and has many aspects which can be altered. Drawers can be rearranged or replaced and some modules can be rotated. This is very useful when mounting storage that can be easily accessible from the side door. Integrated T-Racks are also available.
Plywood van racking is useful for securing accessories and light tools for transit. If your business vehicle does not carry heavy tools or machinery then plywood racking could be the option for you.
This is made up from a combination of plywood shelving and steel framework. It’s used to secure goods and tools in transit. The plywood and steel combination is better for heavy duty use.
Manufactured from galvanised sheet steel, van racking of this kind is a storage option which is suitable for heavy duty use. This form of steel is corrosion resistant so is ideal for damp environments or storing paints and other liquids.
