Van storage – modular racking

Van storage – modular racking

Rhino Products has introduced a new internal van accessory, MR4. PHPI caught up with Steve Egerton, CEO, Rhino Products Group to find out more. 

Q. Why has Rhino Products decided to introduce an Internal Racking solution for vans?

Here at Rhino, we’re all about innovation, and after building a reputation as a leading manufacturer of products such as roof racks, roof bars, and pipe tubes, in many ways this was the next logical step. The launch of MR4, our first ever internal van accessory, coincides with our 20th anniversary – over the span of two decades, we have expanded into seven companies, two factories, and multiple distribution centres. Despite our growth, we have always stayed true to our roots with the tradesman in mind – you keep the world moving.

Q. How does the MR4 system help to maximise storage space in the back of a van?

Our dedicated team of designers have mapped out every vehicle to ensure that all configurations are made to measure, to maximise the potential storage space of every van. People who have bought Rhino roof racks or bars in the past will be familiar with our bespoke fitting kits which help tailor the products to the specific mounting points of each vehicle. The same goes for our MR4 range, we supply unique fitting kits with easy-to-follow instructions that tell you how to assemble and fit the racking. 

Q. What kinds of storage options and accessories are available?

Our standard shelving range is already available to purchase online, with sleek aluminium fronted drawers being added to the range soon. Also in development are drop fronts, kickplates, lockers, and assortment box systems. 

Several optional accessories are currently available for the MR4 range, with many more additions on the way. We now offer ‘lin bin’ storage tubs that easily slot into your shelving, with the option of purchasing dividers to section off areas within the bins. If bins aren’t your style, we also offer steel shelf dividers that can be placed anywhere along the shelf to suit your needs. To hold your tools and equipment in place without moving around in transit, we also offer rubber matting to line your shelves with an extra bit of grip. Our lin bins and shelf dividers are designed to slot in at any point along the shelving, meaning you can customise your MR4 system however you need.

Q. Can a professional tradesperson fit the system or does it need to be done by a specialist?

No specialist needed. MR4 is designed with tradespeople in mind – we know that time is one of the most important resources you have, so we made sure that fitting is quick and simple. Each kit comes with an easy-to-follow set of instructions, showing assembly and fitting, telling you exactly where to drill. The bespoke fitting kits with innovative blind-bolts and self-fixing tek screws have been cleverly designed to make fitting an MR4 system as quick and easy a process as possible. With our system, anyone can fit it with speed and ease, meaning you can get moving again quickly. 

MR4 is available to buy online now, but if you would rather have someone fit it for you, the range will soon be available through our nationwide network of fitters.
