DECKED Van Storage System

DECKED in-vehicle storage and organization system is a weatherproof and ergonomic solution for full-size trucks and cargo vans. The 100% American-made DECKED system features two secure, full bed-length drawers with a 200-pound load rating per drawer that glide effortlessly on industrial-grade wheels beneath a 2,000-pound payload-rated deck. Constructed from rugged High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and American steel, owners get ergonomic access to tools and equipment while maintaining full use of their vehicle bed’s footprint.  

Storage is customizable and the system, once assembled, is easily installed and removed with little to no drilling or alteration of the vehicle body. Put critical gear right at the worker’s fingertips. Eliminating the need to step in and out of the vehicle saves time and money as well as reducing work-related injuries.

Ranger Design’s van shelving and storage bin systems are unique in the industry, combining the strength and rigidity of aluminum extrusions with a solid substrate shelf base, for a shelf tray that is strong and quiet.
Shelving and storage bins are available in hundreds of different configurations of height, length, and shelf depth.

Ranger Design’s exclusive shelf construction of extrusions and laminate carries the load time after time. And, extra durability doesn’t necessarily mean extra weight. Ranger Design’s popular #4048-3 shelf weighs only 44 pounds. The shelves are easily adjustable in order to accommodate any kind of cargo and shelf dividers drop into specially engineered slots that eliminate all rattles.

Adrian’s drop-down ladder rack can be adjusted quickly and without tools. The exclusive twist to adjust mechanism allows operators to get the perfect fit for a wide range of ladders in a matter of seconds. This keeps the ladder safely secured and eliminates rattling that can cause driver distractions.

In addition, Adrian Steel includes a guard rail to protect the ladder from hitting the outside of the van or damage vehicle graphic and the low roof racks feature an attached handle to quickly access the rack. Finally, the racks are designed with a wide base to accommodate 10- to 12-foot step ladders.
