LIGHTWEIGHT + DURABLE
The components for Syncro System vans are dominated by two main characteristics:
allows you to load more
cargo without exceeding
your van’s maximum weight
Lighter weight components
also provide significant
savings in terms of fuel
consumption and vehicle
The more durable each
component is means that
you will incur less damage
and they will last longer.
Shelving, drawer units
and all Syncro racking

(wood, high strength
steel, plastic, aluminum)

How does lighter translate into savings?

MORE DURABLE = DIMINISHED COSTS OVER
Don’t worry about any possible defects: the warranty covers everything!
GUARANTEED OVER TIME
The modest amount needed to invest in converting your van will
be made back over a very short period of time from the
guaranteed savings from all these factors. And even more, Syncro
offers a 3-YEAR WARRANTY starting from the installation,
replacing any components that have any signs of being faulty.
The real costs of a Syncro conversion: not only can you finance your investment, but it pays you back fast.
The minimal expenses necessary to convert your van:

Reusabillity factor of Syncro components
The Syncro System van components are designed to be REUSABLE:
They are durable, and therefore last for years →
without breaking or ruining.01
Their LONG-LASTING DURABILTY goes far beyond
the life of commercial vehicle → so when you
change vans, you can install the old components
on your new van.
We make sure the external measurements remain
the same. This means that older pieces are
compatible with newer ones → So as you change
and make improvements and upgrades, you can
integrate and combine NEW elements to suit your
evolving needs. Or painlessly modify your system
to fit a new van.
All components are mounted with a SIMPLE
installation system that allows for both easy
mounting and dismounting of the pieces. → And if
you’re thinking about selling your old van, you
don’t have to worry about any damage done by
taking out the racking components.
