Bott Smartvan Safety Features

Bott van racking products have been 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.

About Ford Transit

The Transit benefited from a range of updates in 2016 that included the adoption of EcoBlue TDCi engines which are Euro6 compliant. The latest Transit line-up also offers updated tech and safety kit, and the driving dynamics have been improved a little too.

The two key trim levels remain, so you can order a Transit Base or a Transit Trend and you can also specify your Transit van in three different load lengths (L2, L3 and L4) plus two roof heights (H2 and H3). The Ford Transit used to have the lowest payload of any 3.5t van, but the transition to the EcoBlue engine has resulted in a 1,445kg payload rating for the lightest FWD Transit variant.

Bott Smartvan FAQs

Van racking is an in-vehicle storage system which helps you organise your van, increasing efficiency and safety.

  • A tidy, well organised Ford Transit van will impress your customers.
  • Van racking saves time when searching for something that’s needed on your job.
  • Van racking promotes organised storage which minimises the amount you need to store, reducing your vehicle load, therefore saving fuel.
  • Organised storage helps protect valuable tools and parts.
  • You may even find that you won’t need such a big van, saving you more money - and you could also save up to 5%* on your van insurance!
  • Van racking helps protect against internal denting and damage to bodywork from unsecured loads. This helps keep the van in good condition which can result in a higher resale value.
  • Van racking gives convenient access to tools and parts preventing the minor injuries sustained when searching through disorganised equipment.
  • Loose cargo rolling around in your van can be dangerous - even fatal. Van racking improves load security, creating a safer environment for you on the road.

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.

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.

Smartvan currently offers racking solutions for small and medium vans. We do have 2 other ranges within Bott called Uno and Vario that could help. Please see the catalogues for these on the link: https://www.bottltd.co.uk/about-bott-downloads-1998.html&CategoryID=6667

Yes it may just be that you will need to trim it or drill a hole in it to gain access to the van's fixing point.

Our racks are compatible with all manufacturers' floors. If you want our floor you will need to remove any existing floor you may have.

Currently no but we are working on it at the moment. You are welcome to travel here to see the product.

482mm wide x 285mm deep.

Standard 3-5 working days. If frames we don’t hold in stock such as a Nissan NV200 then 10 days. (This can be checked on our configurator)

Smartvan is a self-fit range so no drilling involved. The racks secure by using the van's existing fixing points and we supply all the fixings and installation guides. If you want to get an idea of the fitting process we have the instructions available to view in the `How to install` section above.

The Heaviest module is 36kgs. The weights are now on show below the selected module on our custom build configurator.


1060mm load space available.

About 15 inches. If you are fitting accessories first - leave the bottom ones last and start from the top. The bottom accessories may not fit.

Unfortunately no, the reason for this is because the deck fixes to the racks. If there were no racks the deck would just sit in the middle of the van with a gap the whole way round.
