Van Racking

Racking is available in a variety of materials, from simple ply wood to composites and plastic. The most important aspects of van racking are strength, durability and weight we have engineered our racking ranges to find the perfect balance between weight saving and longevity. For this reason, we use a high-strength, lightweight steel which minimizes weight increases of conversion while offering durability which ensures that racking will last for the lifetime of the vehicle.

 

Many sole traders or smaller fleets choose wooden racking as it’s a cheaper option. However, depending on the use of the vehicle, wooden racking is often easily damaged and not as durable as metal alternatives. Meaning that often times, the racking needs to be replaced or repaired throughout the lifespan of the vehicle, whereas metal racking will last much longer.

 

All of our racking undergoes stringent safety testing including crash testing. In addition, all of our van storage products are subject to the following tests:

  • Bulkhead Load and Impact Assessment
  • Fastener Load CapacityRacking Durability Testing
  • Body Shell Load Capacity
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
  • External Storage Testing

Yes. Our Van Racking is designed to be extremely durable and is often re-used by customers when fleet vehicles are replaced. We offer this service as part of our De-Fleet service

 

Vehicle De-Fleet is the reverse process of converting the vehicle where all racking, roof equipment, electrics and livery are removed. The vehicle is taken back to the standard condition in which it left the manufacturers factory. This process usually occurs once the vehicle has finished its fleet service, before going on to auction.

 

Gas in transit covers any potentially harmful substance that is to be transported by a vehicle. Gas in transit conversions require a specific conversion which comply with strict regulations such as ‘Dangerous Goods Directive’, ‘Confined Spaces Regulations’, ‘Carriage of Dangerous Goods’

 

Bri-Stor Systems offer commercial livery service through our internal graphics department HEX Signs & Graphics.

Many people carry fuel generators or use engine idling to power their tools or lighting when working off site. This can be expensive, noisy and have a negative impact on the environment. The EasiPower Lithium Power system offers an effective alternative. Find out more about the EasiPower System.
