Drawer cabinets are a smart way for van users to carry lots of different materials, tools, components and spares in an orderly manner, with everything held securely in place when the van is on the road yet easy to find when needed. Installing one or more drawer cabinets is the best way to store and transport tools and small items of equipment: drawers help you work more efficiently, protect tools and equipment against damage, and provide easy access to contents when needed. Syncro drawer cabinets are specially designed for installation in van racking systems, to keep your tools and equipment tidy and safe. Syncro System North America has a wide range of drawer cabinets to choose from. The cabinet and the drawer bodies are made from high-strength steel to limit weight and ensure the necessary strength. The unique features of Syncro drawers make them easy to use and long-lasting. The runners are ball-bearing mounted and telescopic in action, allowing the drawer to open all the way. A double latch in the front panel automatically holds the drawer closed, while a simple lever hidden in the recessed handle releases it for opening. All drawers come complete with non-slip mats and space dividers with special anti-vibration fittings.

Most drawer cabinets are designed for installation along your van’s side walls and are therefore not very deep. To open the drawers, you have to climb into the back of your van.

Side-opening drawer cabinets on the other hand are made to be accessed from outside the van. These cabinets have the same dimensions as standard front-opening ones. What changes is the direction of opening: the drawers can be opened from the van's or rear doors without climbing on board. Side-opening drawers are long and narrow but, thanks to strong telescopic runners they can still open all the way, so that neither capacity nor access are compromised.

Multibox cabinets with clear plastic containers

Syncro’s MULTIBOX cabinets with plastic containers are designed to carry large quantities of small parts and spares. The containers themselves are made from tough, clear plastic that is resistant to impacts, oils and other corrosive agents. They also feature a patented system for holding them shut and can be released and opened simply by tilting them upwards.
