How do our vehicle accident cameras work?

vans a la mode in manchester likes to offer a range of safety and security solutions to our customers, os they can protect their vans and their drivers as much as possible.

one of our newer products is the vehicle accident camera. these little cameras can be installed into a van for under £200 and will record and incidents that may happen during the vans daily drive.

the technical bit

our vehicle accident cameras work by constantly recording the view from the windscreen of the van. once memory card in the cameras is full it will start to overwrite what was previously recorded.

the clever part

inside the vehicle accident camera is a sensor that monitors g force, if it notices strong and sudden G forces (like that what are experienced during a accident) it will stop overwriting it memory and save a section of video to show a few minutes before the accident and a few minutes after the accident.

so a vehicle accident cameras from vans a la mode can help to keep a visual copy of what happened before, during and after an accident, should your commercial vehicle get into one. provided valuable evidence to provide to insurers, police, etc.

our vehicle accident cameras are now becoming a must have feature for most van fleets as it helps to protect the companies interests and provide information that goes beyond relying on statements from drivers.

we have installed dozens of accident cameras to single vans and van fleets across the north west, we have customers from several housing associations spread across greater manchester and cheshire (salford, wilmslow, warrington, altrincham) and can provide the same service to you.

What is the best way to secure a ladder to my van roof?

Well there are multiple options in the Vans A La Mode range the will allow you to safely store and transport your ladders on the roof of your van.

The Rhino Racking range we offer at Vans A La Mode Manchester has 2 main ladder storage solutions. the first is called the Rhino Ladderstow, it helps to secure a single ladder the roof of your van. the second ladder storage solution we offer at Vans A La Mode in Manchester is the Rhino Safestow3, the Rhino Safestow 3 not only allows store of your ladder on your van roof but also assists with the loading and unloading of that ladder via its innovative system.

Both the Rhino Ladderstow and the Rhino Safestow 3 require installation or either Rhino Delta bars or Rhino Roof racks. this is due to the Rhino products working together to offer a complete van racking solution.

Rhino Ladderstow

The Rhino Ladderstow system creates a dedicated area on your roof rack for ladder storage.

The Rhino Ladderstow is made of robust metal that allows you to easily slide your ladders into your van roof without causing any damage. once loaded onto the Rhino Ladderstow system your ladder can then be strapped down using the Ladderstow’s straps and buckles. once strapped in your ladders will be safely secured to the roof of your van, ready for transportation.

The smooth loading of the Ladderstow means there is no longer a need to climb in to the van or van roof to store ladders, you simply need a bit of physical effort to tilt the ladders and and push up.

For an even easier way of loading the ladders on to the roof of your van you can opt for the Rhino Safestow 3 system.

Rhino Safestow 3

The Rhino Safestow 3 ladder storage system allows very easy loading and unloading of ladders on to commercial vehicles.

The Rhino Safestow 3 can also be specced to store 2 ladders at once for added convenience.

The Rhino Safestow 3 system has been designed to make loading and unloading of ladders very easy. it uses gas powered struts to assist with the lifting of the ladders into position, so the user can simply slide the ladder forward on to the roof. and when it comes time to remove the ladder from the roof of the van, the Rhino Safestow 3 will lower the ladder down for you, so very minimal effort is required to load and unload your ladders.

The Rhino Ladderstow, Rhino Safestow 3 and Rhino Safeclamp are all available from Vans A La Mode in Manchester. all of our Rhino Racking products are available with installation however we can also supply them for a DIY installation.

What is the difference between Roof Bars and Roof Racks?

In terms of aesthetics the Rhino Roof Bars we sell at Vans A La Mode look very similar to the Rhino Roof Racks we sell from our manchester warehouse. that is because they are both very well made Rhino Racking products that offer very similar performance. the rhino delta bar roof bar systems are available in 2 bar, 3 bar and 4 bar varieties. the Rhino Delta roof bars are horizontal bars that go across the roof of a van. they offer the ability to store and transport items on top of the roof of your van with ease.

At Vans A La Mode we have sold and installed dozens of the Rhino delta roof bar systems to a wide range of commercial vehicles , from Transit vans to Renault Traffics. the great hing about the Delta bar systems is that they are made to fit each van and you only have to add an additional roof bar if you have a longer wheelbase van (LWB).

Vans A La Mode covers all of Manchester and Cheshire with our Rhino racking products, so we can install our Delta bar Roof Racking systems in a wide area and in town, village and cities across the north west. vans a la mode offers installation services at our warehouse but we can also offer mobile installation of your Rhino racking products. last week we were in Altrincham instilling a 3 bar Delta bar system, the week before we were in trafford park installing 5 aluminium roof racks to some brand new vans, our scope for supplying and installing the rhino racking rang his vast.

With regards to the Rhino roof racks the major difference between then and the Rhino delta bars systems is the inclusion of side rails. the rhino modular and Rhino aluminium roof racks have side rails build into the structure of the roof rack, so it is more robust and also offers the added security of having side rails to hold items in place easier.

Whether you are after a Rhino delta bar system or a full rhino roof rack we can help. Vans A La Mode is an official stockist of the rhino racking range, so we can supply the Rhino Delta Bars and Rhino Roof Racks for very competitive prices with installation in Manchester or just as supply only for a DIY install.

Why do you need a Van Pipe Tube?

Well if you are regularly transporting long and thin items that are cumbersome or susceptible to damage then a van pipe tube from Vans A La Mode in Manchester can help to reduce your worries. Our Rhino van pipe tubes are made from high grade aluminium and can withstand a lot of abuse.

the benefit of having a rhino pipe tube over an alternative brand is that it will work perfectly with our rhino delta bar roof bars and our rhino roof rack systems. the rhino pipe tube and rhino roof racks have been specifically designed to work as a pairing.

a rhino pipe tube is fitted to the roof of your van via a rhino roof bar or rhino roof rack system, from here you can load the pipe tube with copper pipes and other long an thin items that are likely to get damaged if left to roll about inside of your van.

the rhino pipe tube works in conjunction with the rhino racking systems, so that it can be installed to any van with a rhino roof rack. so all you have to do is select which length of rhino pipe tube you would require.

the rhino pipe tubes are supplied as a DIY install by Vans A La Mode but if required our installers in Manchester can carry out the fitment of the rhino pipe tube to your rhino rack.

Why do you need a Van Roof Rack?

Well if you are in the building trade a roof rack is a must have item. the versatility to store and transport items on to of your work van is a massive benefit.

At Vans A La Mode – Manchester we sell the full range of rhino racking products, so if you need extra space in your van and want to utilise the space on your van roof we can help. the rhino roof rack range consists of 3 main items.

the rhino delta roof bar system

this is the basic option, we have delta roof bars system in 2 bar, 3 bar, 4 bar and 5 bar versions. each is suited to fit different van makes and models as well as different wheelbases and van trim levels.

rhino modular roof rack

the rhino modular roof rack is a the rhino racking brands standard offering for a full roof rack. the difference between the van roof bars and van roof rack is that the rhino modular roof rack is a fun system, with both bars and rails, so it covers the whole of the van roof and its side rails help to store items better.

rhino aluminium roof rack

the rhino aluminium roof rack is the premium offering from rhino racking with regards to van roof racks. it is made mostly of aluminium so has a massive weight saving over the rhino modular roof rack. the aluminium is just as hard wearing as the steel in the rhino modular roof rack but its lower weight can make great savings on fuel economy. so although the rhino aluminium roof rack is more expensive than the rhino modular roof rack it is likely to save you money overall.
