YEARS SPECIALISED IN
We’ve been working with metal fabrication and production since 1947, and we began developing and producing workshop equipment in 1960. Since 1994, We’ve focused entirely on van racking.
We’ve got the know-how.
We are the only manufacturer in Denmark that has the coveted certificate as proof that Finnerup’s product construction complies with the TÜV ECE-R 17 procedure for effective protection of the driver, passengers and goods.
The test was performed in Denmark, while calculations and evaluation of the test took place in Germany. The stress test was carried out in practise by driving a van with Finnerup’s shelving systems including standard goods at 50 km/h into a wall so that the van would come to an immediate stop.
During the collision, everything that happened to the van was measured and photographed with special focus on the cargo space. The violent forces unleashed were equal to a counterforce of 20 G. The test, which was carried out without a partition (typically recommended by Finnerup), showed that Finnerup’s shelving - during the collision - was displaced by no more than 4 mm on one side and 9 mm on the other side while no further damage occurred. No materials on the shelves were broken.
The conclusion of the test was unequivocal that the racks were not the cause of any damage to the driver or any passengers. This leads us to the conclusion that we can safely recommend our customers to choose Finnerup racks even when the highest safety standards are required.
We’ve standardised our products using aluminum wherever possible. And that’s approximately 95% of our production! After profiling, our aluminum products are virtually indestructible, lightweight and don’t require any treatment to prevent corrosion. That means less CO2 emissions and more savings for our customers.
By combining the use of aluminum along with our intelligent construction methods, a Finnerup racking solution weighs approximately 50% less than a steel racking equivalent.
Reduced weight benefits:
The van racking we produce today is possible because of the decades we invested in perfecting Finnerup cabinets and workstations.
Even though we’ve modernised our processes and set the standard for van racking, that promise of hand-crafted quality lives on in our workshop.
