Bott GmbH & Co. KG, Germany
Workshop vehicles are the mobile successors of the craftsmen’s neatly organised tool box. Since on-site assembly work often has to be performed quickly, these vehicles must be well organised and clearly arranged, in order to support all work phases effectively. “bott vario” in-vehicle equipment reflects these requirements in its highly versatile and functional design. The in-vehicle equipment is based around the use of a material mix consisting of anodised aluminium, powder-coated steel and impact-resistant high-quality plastics: this material mix facilitates new characteristics, making bott vario highly stable and light. An essential advantage of this low weight is that it also helps reduce fuel expenses considerably. bott vario features clear design lines and this choice of materials lends it a very high quality appeal. For vehicle occupants it offers a high level of crash-tested and German TÜV-certified safety. All surfaces and edges feature an innovative finish that further enhances the safety of this in-built equipment storage system and makes it both more user-friendly and pleasing to the touch. All individual drawers are smooth and self-explanatory in operation and an ergonomically optimised arrangement makes finding and storing tools an easy task. Designed to closely meet the requirements of mobile workspaces, bott vario makes on-site work easy and possesses a high degree of aesthetics.
