If you own a commercial vehicle, you have probably seen van partitions for sale. And, if you’re like many people, you may have brushed them off as just an extra accessory that you don’t really need, especially if you’re trying to keep costs down.
However, these partitions are a lot more important than you might realize. They are designed to separate a vehicle’s cargo area from its driver and passenger area. And, in some cases, such as in a recent wreck, they can be vital to keeping people safe.
These Wreck Photos Speak for Themselves
Recently, we had a client tell us about a situation in which our work van partitions really saved the day.
Basically, the client had a gigantic box of roofing nails sitting on a pallet in the back of the van. Unfortunately, a driver ran the intersection without hitting the brakes, and a collision ensued.
Thankfully, a partition was in place that kept the nails from moving into the passenger area or beyond.
As you can tell from the photos below, this situation could have gotten really ugly and really dangerous if not for our partitions.
As was the case in this instance, our partitions for work vans can go a long way in keeping employees, team members, and innocent passersby safe.
In this situation, someone could have been hit by flying nails, which might have proved disastrous or even deadly.
And, even when you don’t have airborne nails to contend with, consider the fact that, without a partition in place, any object in the back of your van has the potential to hit drivers, passengers, the windshield, and potentially even others on the road. When you consider the many heavy and potentially lethal objects that are likely sitting in the back of your work van right now, it’s easy to see why partitions matter.
We know that you care deeply about your team and about other people, and a partition is the best way to protect their safety and wellbeing.
Our commercial partitions aren’t just great at keeping people safe. They’re also great at keeping your expensive equipment safe.
If someone were to break into your work van, a partition could keep them from getting into the back of the van, where all of your most important and costly items are likely to be stored. Thus, a partition could potentially save you thousands of dollars, if not more, in loss.
Improved Comfort and Organization
You’ll also be glad to know that our partitions are designed to make any van more comfortable and more organized.
When you seal off a vehicle’s cargo area, you can maintain a desirable temperature in the passenger area more easily and efficiently, which keeps your workers comfortable and able to work longer and harder, which also increases productivity.
Furthemore, partitions allow cargo to remain where it belongs: in the cargo area. That means no more cramped spaces, less time spent searching for items, and better organization and efficiency overall.
