"This is a giant leap for affordable metal van racking. Quite simply put – this is a premium product at a non-premium price."
Chris Angel - National Sales Manager
Being constructed in the main from Aluminium of 1.5mm sheet material and the side extrusion also being constructed from this lightweight but strong material, we can keep the weight of units as low as possible. In fact, our 3 shelved 1000mm X 1000mm units are between 5 & 9 KG’s lighter than the industry (steel constructed) leaders. This helps aid with increased load capacity and lower fuel consumption. Lower fuel consumption is not just good news for you and your pocket, but it's also great for the environment meaning less CO2 is being emitted in comparison to the heavier racking available.
Safety is paramount. That’s why we have stringently tested our lightweight aluminium Trade Van Racking to ensure that it passes the industry standard ECE reg17. This means you can be confident that your goods whatever you are carrying are safely secured.The aluminium box construction is reinforced at the joins with the quality polypropylene copolymer plastic covered 2mm galvanised steel adding to the completed unit’s strength and durability.
Because our Trade Van Racking units are universal, manufactured in house and packaged ready to go, we can get them to you the very next day. No lengthy lead times like those from other manufacturers mean you can have your van sorted in the quickest time possible. The sooner it's racked and organised the quicker you can find the right tool for your job. Saving you time and earning you more money. Not only will your Trade Van Racking be with you the next day we’ve also invested in high quality packaging to ensure that your goods are received in good condition.
Keeping the design as simple as possible has not only helped to keep the costs down, but it has also ensured that the Trade Van Racking is incredibly easy to build and fit. It's construction method keeps the nuts and bolts to an absolute minimum. All our single 3 shelf units only have 12 nuts, 12 bolts & 12 washers to fix to get the unit up and running. 1 person should be able to build a single unit in way under 20 minutes! The sturdy universal fixing kit supplied has all that you will need to attach it to the desired location within your van. Minimal tools are required and no specialist equipment is needed meaning that you will have your van kitted out in no time at all.
We know our Trade Van Racking offering is the best priced crash tested aluminium system available to purchase in the UK. It's such good value it prices up against the heavier steel offerings very favourably but with all the benefits of a lighter construction material.
In this day and age how your business is presented and perceived is massively important. That’s why when we designed our Trade Van Racking we have ensured it not only performs superbly but also that it looks the part too. We have carefully considered all paint finishes to ensure both effortless use and style. Internally for example the lighter colours provide increased visibility where it is often needed most without being too light to cause the components to lose their robust nature and look easily weathered.
The plastic extrusion corner covers have been made from high quality polypropylene copolymer and the design picks up the same design striations as the aluminium extrusion, adding to it's no nonsense robust look.
We are ferociously proud to be a British manufacturer (we have been in excess of 40 years now) and as such have joined the prestigious Made in Britain marque in 2015. In 2015 we finished a project to re-shore our outsourced product components back here to the UK. This mark is reserved for British manufacturers and is also a sign of our own continued investment in British manufacturing.
During the design process we ensured that the finished Trade Van Racking would be Flexible and adaptable for years to come.
Shelves can be added in or taken out to suit your needs, with different height units and different length shelves available you can easily tailor the racking to your exact needs. The shelves can be fitted at various heights and add-ons are available so you can really personalize the racking to get it exactly as you want and need.
At present we offer; dividers, non-slip matting, unit height extensions, extra shelves and plastic bins to help keep your gear organised and make the most of your vehicle's load space. Units can easily be added to and enlarged when and if needed with parts available at component part level.
Due to how it is designed and constructed the racking can easily be transferred from one vehicle to another in the future if needed. It’s a great long-term investment. Shelves have been designed to take the most common of tool boxes on the market. So, you can be safe in the knowledge that your existing tools and their cases can be comfortably accommodated. The innovative angled shelf is designed to slope backwards so that tool cases can be simply slid in and out.

The Trade Van Racking was put through the stringent UNECE Reg 17 and ECE-R 17 crash test which is where the object is accelerated at 20g for 30ms, and is then dead stopped.
The deceleration must sit within a controlled state and stay within the controlled corridor to comply with the UNENCE Reg 17 parameters.
The condition of the racking after the test must meet and be compliant to the stringent guidelines of UNECE Reg 17 and ECE-R 17 which deemed the Van Guard Trade Van Racking as a compliant test.
