Knaack LLC, a division of Emerson Professional Tools, and Weather Guard Van Solutions announced customized van storage equipment for the new Nissan NV Commercial Van. The equipment features driver-friendly bulkheads and a wide range of shelving, specialty storage and roof rack options designed to meet the needs of professional contractors and field service/repair professionals.
Weather Guard said it has developed customized Nissan NV bulkheads that not only keep drivers safe, but provide an extra 4 in. of room to stretch out the legs or recline the seat compared to other van bulkheads on the market. The company is offering the customized Nissan NV bulkhead in standard-roof and high-roof models, along with a complete lineup of bulkhead accessories, such as hardhat, fire extinguisher and extension cord brackets, literature holders, and First Aid Kit and Safety Reflector kit trays. And with the Dog Hatch Door, storing 10-ft. of pipe and lumber inside the van is possible, the company added.
Within the cargo area, there is up to 90-in. of Jumbo Steel Shelving in which to keep tools and equipment secure and organized, with long shelves designed for both the standard-roof and high-roof models. A 51-in. retainer lip is available for all shelving units, helping to keep tools and equipment from rolling around on the floor while the van is turning or stopping abruptly. The company also offers a variety of storage units such as locking shelf doors, locking parts cabinets, and locking file drawers to keep items more secure from theft or loss. All van storage equipment is manufactured using 18-gauge steel and comes in Armor Tuf powder coat in Brite White, designed to brighten up dark van spaces, and features an exclusive limited Llifetime warranty, according to the maker.
The company said it has designed four unique van storage packages recommended for
general contractors, plumbers, electricians and HVAC contractors. Each package provides customized solutions based upon the unique tools and equipment that contractor typically uses. It also can customize a van storage package for any other type of trade to ensure maximum productivity.
Outside of the van, Weather Guard offers the EZ-Glide System for loading and unloading ladders with the use of an ergonomic drive arm. A hydraulic cylinder provides a smooth and effortless descent and a zero-impact drop that reduces the load to the contractors’ shoulders, the company added.
