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.
Once you have purchased your Bott Smartvan racking system, you may want some extras to give it those finishing touches. Whether it’s bigger items that go into the modules or smaller accessories that go in the shelves, The Smartvan accessory shop has everything.

The Volkswagen Crafter was named 2018 Van of the Year, and with 69 body/drive derivatives available there’s sure to be something for everyone. A 2.0-litre EA 288 Nutz diesel engine, which VW developed especially for the Crafter, powers the line-up with outputs of 102hp, 122hp and 140hp, plus there’s a bi-turbo TDI with 177hp.
VW also now offers an eight-speed automatic gearbox in the Crafter to complement the six-speed manual transmission. The Volkswagen Crafter panel van range is available with load volumes of 9.9m3, 11.3m3, 14.3m3, 16.0m3, 16.3m3 and 18.3m3 while payloads go from 801kg to 2,279kg.
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.
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.
