The usual packing size format problem for vans has, until now, been that the 60cm wide trunks only allow 2 items side by side in a transporter and so not making use of any further free loading capacity. The new Sprinter-format flight case is narrower so that 3 trunks can be loaded side by side. Furthermore, the new trunks are lighter, so optimizing the limited weight-load capacity of the van.
The total depth of a Sprinter format flight case is 560mm, including the ball-corners. This means that three trunks, lying flat, need 1680mm of space, which is offered by every standard small transporter in the Sprinter class.
According to each manufacturer and the height capacity of each version, the loading space can, of course, vary from the illustration shown. In our experience, however, three 1200mm tall trunks, lying flat, will fit in any space (information given here correct at the time of publication).
Sprinter format trunks are manufactured from “Solidplex” plywood. They are therefore lighter than the ProfilPlus Vario Flex range, but nevertheless robust. Steel channels strengthen the longer sidewalls, making the loaded trunks stable and thus the partition walls are safely fixed inside.
The new inlay trays for this series are also lighter compared with the ProfilPlus version.
The Vario Flex transport trunks in the Sprinter format class are ideally suited to combine the ProCase rack modules and other ProCase system solutions such as the 19” standard racks.
Laid flat, the height of the 120 Vario Flex model is exactly the same as the ProfiPlus version. Even the height when standing on rollers is the same. This makes them absolutely flexible in use in combination with the van load sizes for the Sprinter format flight cases.
The basis of the Sprinter trunk is a universal type trunk using variable plug in partition walls and an open-adjustable lid. This is available in widths 600mm, 800mm and 1200mm. The 1200mm rack version offers the possibility of a removable lid.
This version has practical, plastic storage containers. The containers are held tightly against the partition walls, thus ensuring no parts can spill.
