Shelving Units with Rear Tapered Corner

Shelves with chamfered side plates are a great way of exploiting the full height of your van, whatever the model. These shelves fit at the top of the van’s side walls, right under the roof and turn an otherwise unused space into practical storage.

Offset shelving: how Syncro System maximises available space

One of the features that make Syncro van storage systems stand out from the competition is their ability to offset modules one with respect to another.

What exactly does offset installation mean? Most van side walls are curved rather than perfectly vertical. To follow the profile of the side walls while maintaining a continuous vertical surface towards the inside of the van, columns of storage cabinets can be assembled from modules of different depth.

The same technique can be used to install storage systems around components like spare wheels and wheel arches.

The modular design of Syncro storage

Offset configurations are made possible by the clever, modular design of Syncro storage. The shelves, drawers and lockers in the Syncro catalogue are designed and made in modules of different height, width and depth. They can therefore be assembled in many combinations and with offsets in all directions. Thanks to this unique, modular design, an almost infinite number of configurations can be created from just a few basic components.

The shape of Syncro shelves

Viewed from the side, the trays of Syncro System shelves are trapezoid in shape: the front is lower than the rear to give easy access to contents. Dividers for organising shelf space share the same shape.

Shelves with chamfered side plates: a clever solution to a common problem

While most Syncro shelves are supported by rectangular side plates, some modules have side plates that are chamfered at the top rear corner. These can be installed right at the top of the van’s side wall, where the roof starts to bend inwards.

This special type of shelving module is easily identified by the design of its side plates:

Instead of being rectangular, both side plates are chamfered or cut away at the top rear corners.

This simple modification often permits an extra shelf unit to be installed on top of other storage units, leading to a significant increase in usable storage space.

Special features of the top tray access door

To remove an item from the top tray, you can either reach over the raised edge and lift the item out over the top, of you can release the catch and fold down the rear access door.

The rear access door comes with clear marks for cutting. If you need to install the top tray in a position that makes it impossible to open the door fully, it can be shaped with a hacksaw or grinder to create a partial opening and gain easy access to contents.

Other Syncro solutions for carrying long objects: roof racks and transport tubes

As you might expect from Syncro, the full length top tray is not the only solution for transporting pipes, cable channels and other long items, even though it is the ideal way of doing so inside the van.

Syncro also supplies:

  • Roof racks for use with straps and similar cargo lashing systems: the ideal way of making full use of the vehicle’s roof
  • Transport tubes: roof-mounted containers specially designed for carrying long objects, made in stainless steel and fitted with a lockable access door
  • Strap and hook lashing systems for installation inside the van, for use with all kinds of cargo
  • Can be mounted directly on your van’s side wall using the SUP-GRA adjustable support.

Dimensions of shelf units with chamfered side plates

Syncro shelf units with chamfered side plates are available in various sizes, and in open and closable versions:

253/507/761/1014/1268/1521 x 241 x 310/353/410 mm open
507/761/1014/1268/1521 x 241 x 310/353/410 mm with door

What makes Syncro shelves better than other shelves

If you compare a Syncro shelf unit with one made by our competitors, you will quickly see the advantages of the Syncro design. Syncro shelves are modular, easy to combine, and adaptable to all storage requirements and all makes and model of van lightweight and strong thanks to advanced materials and a clever cut-away design that minimises weight without affecting strength designed to give your van interior a clean, elegant and professional appearance extremely functional in terms of capacity, access and security thanks to a combination on non-slip mats and metal shelf dividers.

Syncro, the only van fit out specialist who can satisfy your needs – always!

Shelves with chamfered side plates are a typical Syncro solution to a very particular need. And Syncro has plenty of other bright ideas too! For example, we even produce a special shelf to suit the unique design of the Fiat Doblò 2000, which has an unusually shaped left wheel arch. This particular shelf requires a special side plate, deeper than the shelf body it supports.

These guys here are worth more than 5 stars. The quality of workmanship from when we walked through the door to enquire to when we collected our completed van.Flooring, racking, window mesh and mesh behind front seats. Absolutely spot on. The quality of everything they have installed and the way they have fixed it to the van is definitely going to outlast the van. They had everything in stock and kept us informed of the progress throughout.I'll add pictures too.Thanks

John was brilliant. Great customer service and assistance with the knowledge of all the products available (which is literally thousands). He went the sale on what was most practical for my needs due to the small nature of my vehicle over the greater priced sale which I originally planned. Was the perfect solution and at a very reasonable price for storage solutions.
