Why is there a new van racking system?
Research and development of new technological and progressive solutions enables us to ensure that Sortimo products are always one step ahead of market requirements. This is the reason for developing SR5 as the new generation of van racking system.
For which vehicle makes does Sortimo offer van racking systems?
We have the right solutions for every vehicle make and offer perfectly coordinated van racking systems for every type of vehicle.
All Sortimo in-vehicle equipment is developed and produced in Germany, more precisely in Zusmarshausen, Bavaria. This is Sortimo's headquarters and only production site. Despite the global market orientation, we maintain highly qualified specialists and can also guarantee lean production processes and the highest quality due to the bundling of all competences. "Made in Germany" also stands for the innovations and system solutions developed here, which always correspond to the latest state of development.During production, we pay attention to qualitative material, competence of our employees and, of course, the requirements of our customers in order to be able to offer the best possible van racking. As our customers' requirements change over time, we continuously consult and adapt our van rackings to customer needs and market requirements through a close connection between product lifecycle management, development and quality management.
There are various kinds of dangers with self-built van rackings. Starting with the fastening of the racking: Here Sortimo works with crash tests, simulations and many years of development experience to realise the correct connection of the racking to the vehicle via the connection points. Here it is important to have a precise distribution of forces so that in the event of braking or an accident the racking itself does not become a deadly projectile.
In addition, load securing systems, integrated fixing rails and much more help to take precautions that in some cases save lives. Integrated securing elements simplify the handling and partly secure materials and tools from falling out. In the slightest case of damage, only materials or even the vehicle are damaged if tools fall out of the rack during braking or in curves. However, if the forces are stronger, they can also be flung through the driver's cab, causing injuries to the occupants. This is possible even with light objects and low speed.
Incorrect distribution of weights can also mean that the stability of the vehicle is no longer guaranteed in bends and other road users are put at risk. Many accidents have shown that professional in-vehicle equipment not only makes everyday work easier and more efficient, but can also save lives.
In order to make a wooden vehicle body strong enough to remain in one unit in the event of an impact, the material becomes extremely heavy. This means that the loading possibilities are reduced and the fuel consumption increases or reduces the range of electric vehicles enormously. Sortimo's in-vehicle equipment is made of metal, so it is light and strong at the same time. Crash tests show that in the event of a collision the Sortimo van racking remains in one unit and does not break apart. This protects the occupants and the contents of the van racking.
Its slimline design with side profiles requires less floor space than conventional van racking systems. The contour of the vehicle is also perfectly utilised by the flexible installation.
a. Installation of the components offset to the middle of the vehicle means that the SR5 shelving ideally adapts to the contour of the vehicle. The entire depth of the shelf is retained and the roof area in the vehicle is utilised to best advantage.
b. The reduction in component height at the top means that the components are still aligned in the direction of the middle of the vehicle. The advantage of this version is that the van racking system can still be used to store panel materials, among other things. ProSafe lashing rails provide support surfaces and lashing options.
How do I complain in the event of defects?
If you find defects in our products, immediately contact Sortimo on 0800-7678466 or your local contact, bearing in mind the special terms and conditions relating to orders for the installation of Sortimo International GmbH van racking systems. Have your customer and order number to hand.
mySortimo smart asisstant: The mySortimo smart assistant will support you in the selection of a van racking system and, based on your information, will automatically propose a suggestion for your sector and your vehicle in a few simple steps. Of course you can then make further individual adjustments yourself.
Individual configuration: Individual configuration lets you create your new SR5 van racking system tailored to your personal and individual requirements. You can freely design your loading space concept and place selected components directly in their designated position by drag and drop. When loading the configurator, the individual options for operating the configurator are displayed once again.
mySortimo labels also offer you the option of individually labelling your shelves, cases and BOXXes. Before completing your order, you have the opportunity to check once again the individual components of your configured van racking system.
Why can content only be placed in certain areas of the vehicle?
The SR5 side profiles are located at specified positions on the vehicle to ensure optimum utilisation of the vehicle’s loading space. Get in touch with your local contact if you would like to have the side profiles in a different position.
Can I fit the van racking system myself?
No. We rely on our trained skilled personnel to ensure an optimum result and comply with our warranty conditions. This ensures that we maintain a constant high standard of workmanship and installation of the van racking system.
Your logo or company name should be positioned prominently and ‘jump out’ immediately at any onlooker. It should also be immediately clear what products or services you are offering. Your internet address and company address with additional contact details, such as phone number or e-mail address, complete the design of the decal.
Use a maximum of two to three different fonts and colours. We recommend basing the decal on your other advertising material to ensure a high level of brand recognition. Make use of our vehicle-specific templates for a quick and easy introduction to the design process! Simply replace the content with your data and adapt it your needs accordingly.
You can obtain the complete package directly from the manufacturer in conjunction with a van racking system – your one-stop shop.

How do I reach Sortimo?
Our Customer Service department can be reached
On request and if the leasing conditions are met (value of the van racking over € 1,000.00 incl. assembly), your Sortimo contact will offer you leasing as a possible payment method in the offer.
When purchasing via the mySortimo platform, you will be offered leasing as an additional payment option if the leasing conditions are met (value of the van racking over € 1,000.00 incl. assembly and no other products in the shopping basket).
In the next step, the leasing request is forwarded to our partner PEAC Finance.
How can I print on the adhesive labels?
You can use mysortimo.co.uk/labels to print your adhesive labels. Please note that you will need a laser printer to print them. Alternatively, you have the option of using a waterproof felt-tip pen to write on the labels by hand.
Why should I equip my vehicle with a floor and/or wall?
A professional floor and wall protects the loading space of your vehicle from damage and also helps to preserve the value of your commercial vehicle. The floor and wall also act as a foundation for the stable screw-fixing of the van racking system.
SoboPro: SoboPro is the professional floor for your SR5 van racking system. Its integrated connection points enable the simple and fast installation of SR5 in the vehicle without the need for drill holes.
SoboPro restraint pole: The SoboPro restraint pole installation and load securing floor has additional universal lashing points in addition to the lashing points for the Sortimo SR5 van racking system.
What load securing options does Sortimo offer?
Sortimo offers its own ProSafe professional load securing system to securely transport freight in your vehicle. ProSafe is integrated in uprights, beams and lashing rails. The lashing straps and load safety nets can then be hooked in with ease and the load securely lashed in place. This helps to protect the material, at the same time as saving time, weight and money. A wide range of accessories, including load safety nets, single lashing points, cargo stops or restraint poles, complete the broad portfolio.
Can I order the WorkMo on mySortimo?
Yes, you can order different heights and widths of WorkMo modules, or order them as a preconfigured set at mySortimo.de. You can also buy a wide range of accessories at www.mySortimo.de.
What is the ideal working height if I want to use the WorkMo on site as my workplace?
The WorkMo is available in two different heights (506 mm and 744 mm), enabling it to be adapted flexibly to every working situation. If you wish to use the WorkMo as a workplace on site, then we would recommend a 750 /744 mm high WorkMo for heavier work and two WorkMo 500 modules (total height 1012 mm) stacked on top of one another for more precise work.
Why aren’t there coloured inset boxes anymore?
mySortimo labels let you label your inset boxes, cases, BOXXes as well as the shelves of the Sortimo SR5 van racking system individually, according to type and purpose as well as whether they belong to a specific vehicle or employee and to give them a colour code. The Sortimo colour code thereby provides effective visual labelling, which lets you see at a glance what content is located in which BOXX.
Can I also buy individual inset boxes?
Yes. You can buy the inset boxes in a set or individually at mySortimo.co.uk.
