Van racking is an in-vehicle storage system which helps you organise your van, increasing efficiency and safety.
The racking fixes to existing fixing points in your van so no drilling is required, it has been designed so it can be installed using common tools such as allen keys, spanners and a socket set.
We also recommend that a Torque Wrench is used to secure fixings to the instructed level of tightness, typically 8Nm.
The system uses a unique floor, made of a hard-wearing 12mm water-resistant ply, complete with a durable non-slip grey surface. Our van floors include a vehicle-specific fitting kit. The solution is designed to make the most of all available space in the van, covering the exposed sides of the van, so side linings are not needed.
Bott van racking products were crash tested at the Motor Industry Research Association (MIRA) in Warwickshire. A vehicle body shell fitted with fully ballasted van racking was mounted on MIRA’s HyGe sled. The sled was accelerated by a pneumatic piston to simulate the forces experienced in a frontal impact. The van racking storage system successfully passed the test first time with no modifications. The test was performed to EU ECE / R17 standards using a half sine wave 24g ECE17 acceleration pulse, simulating a 30mph frontal impact.

No! Once you’ve chosen the units to meet your requirements, that’s it. As soon as you’ve fitted the system and stored your tools and equipment, you’ll be up and running - and working much more efficiently than ever before.
The System has been designed to be quick and easy to fit, frames utilise existing fixing points in your specific van meaning no drilling is required. Fitting time will vary depending on which configuration you choose, but the more simple configurations including a floor can be fitted in a few hours (see our fitting guide video to learn more). Timings assume a clear van cargo area without manufacturer or 3rd party accessories installed.
