But this is just how Frank, Head of Design at Sortimo, describes the new van racking system from the market leader. In the SR5’s design, not only has functionality been subjected to the most exacting of demands; but special attention was also paid to the look of the rack system.
The new van racking system is meant to make the day-to-day work of tradespeople as easy and efficient as possible, but during development the aim was simultaneously to raise the bar even higher than before.
The SR5 is above all synonymous with productivity, efficiency and progress. It is Sortimo’s response to the megatrends of digitalisation and smart solutions, which are now firmly established in the manual trades as well.
The design of this van racking system boils down to a combination of high tech and futurism, offering almost limitless options for customisation. The SR5 delivers solutions for all requirements whatever the sector.
The combination of a simplified design, light weight and clear arrangement gives the product a new feel: neat, streamlined and upmarket. Even when fully loaded, the racking system looks orderly and well structured – so making the cargo area of any van the best business card a tradesperson or service technician can have.
The SR5 completely redefines the loading space of a vehicle by consistently focusing the design on use by such workers, and highlighting occupational ergonomics as far as possible. This ensures the space available is utilised to optimum effect, however small the van, without making compromises. Use of the racking system components, such as drawers and flaps, is also completely intuitive, making this almost automatic.
The SR5 was awarded the internationally renowned Plus X Award, with the title ‘Best Product of Year 2019’ in the ‘Automotive Accessories’ product range! This award confirms that the van racking system is a future-proof, innovative and ground-breaking product for the automotive sector.
