Whether it's commercial or recreational, these lightweight aluminum roof racks offer a safe way to transport roof top cargo. Included 4" side supports limit lateral movement and keep ladders and other material from sliding off the sides of the van rack. The 14 gauge steel side supports are galvanized and rubber dipped for extra protection. Side supports also have eye holes at the top ends for additional tie-down access. The H3 model uses a clamp-on system that attaches to existing drip rails, eliminating the need for drilling. Upright mounting bases are attached to the drip rails with the use of drip rail clamps. The 3" x 1-1/2" heavy duty cross bars feature channeling for additional accessories. All fullsize van racks from Vantech are vehicle specific to ensure that an absolute fit is made. Included rubber seats are inserted in between mounting bases and drip rails to prevent metal-on-metal contact. The 11" tall van rack system is available in sets of two and three bars to accommodate most cargo needs. For the safest results, cargo must be distributed evenly. Van rack systems are available in a choice of black or white finish.
