No matter the industry, every contractor knows the value of an organized van. However, the moment your equipment, tools and supplies get mixed up, getting even the easiest job done can quickly become delayed with an unnecessary scavenger hunt. One great way to keep your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van organized if by installing handy partitions.
At Advantage Outfitters, LLC, we believe that exceptional service in your role begins with exceptional organization and order in your van. For those who rely on Mercedes-Benz vans, we're pleased to provide several excellent Sprinter partitions that will help you organize your van while protecting you, your passengers and your equipment.
Why Buy Van Partitions for Your Sprinter Work Van?
If you are a business owner or contractor, every investment you make in your Sprinter work van must be a reliable and affordable solution. The benefits of any Sprinter cargo van partitions you purchase must provide short-term and long-term advantages that help you work more efficiently, safely and responsibly. Here are some of the top reasons to install a partition in your work van:
- Increased protection: Your number one priority on the road should be keeping yourself, your passengers and others on the road safe. Unfortunately, traffic accidents are a common problem. If you're involved in an accident, you want your cab to be as safe as possible. A Sprinter safety partition can protect drivers and passengers from flying tools in an accident. It can also prevent these tools from becoming projectiles, which could launch through your windshield and harm others.
- Enhanced containment: Although it's important that you and your passengers are safe in a car crash, anyone who has driven a work van knows that tools and supplies can easily slide around during a normal, safe commute. Sprinter safety partitions can help keep your items contained. By preventing them from shifting into the cab, you can rest assured that everything in the rear of your van doesn't interfere with the driver or passenger.
- Lower fuel costs: One benefit of Sprinter partitions that many van owners don't immediately consider is that these solutions can also lower your overall fuel costs. Whenever you're using your air conditioner or heater, you're effectively trying to heat or cool the entire van. With a partition in place, you can keep your A/C and heat in the cabin, so both you and your fuel economy are kept comfortable.
- Visibility: You might think a partition would block your visibility out the back window, but a Sprinter partition with a window allows you to have the containment and safety you desire with the clear visibility you need.
- A quieter ride: Does anyone love the sound of tools clanking around when they drive? Neither do we. Thankfully, you can outfit your van with a Sprinter van partition to lessen the noise that makes it to the cab. A quieter ride is peaceful, lets you listen to the radio at comfortable volumes and makes on-the-go phone calls crystal clear.
With so many benefits, a Sprinter partition is a fantastic investment that will provide an immediate, positive impact.
What to Look for When Purchasing Partitions for Your Sprinter
How do you choose a Sprinter partition for your van? Although they offer a range of benefits, some may be more practical for your uses than others. When considering different types of partitions, for instance, a Sprinter sliding door partition versus a Sprinter swing door partition, we suggest that you consider these important features:
- Ease of installation: If you're like most Sprinter van owners, you'll want a partition option that you can install yourself. Whether you're installing a Sprinter steel partition or a Sprinter aluminum partition, it should be user-friendly from installation and beyond. Look for Sprinter partitions that you can install with the tools you already have and one extra set of hands if need be.
- Safety: Your number one priority in everything you do should be safety. You should only invest in Sprinter van partitions that are highly-rated for durability. Depending on the equipment you haul, you'll want to consider the advantages that Sprinter aluminum partitions, Sprinter composite partitions and Sprinter steel partitions each deliver.
- Fuel economy: With safety in mind, many Sprinter van owners also want to buy the safest option that still cares for their budget. Search for a lightweight Sprinter partition that can help you reduce your fuel economy. Many partitions can already help you cut down on your A/C and heating usage. Making sure the partition you choose is lightweight will only increase your savings.
- Visibility: One feature we like to point out is how invaluable visibility is for many Sprinter van owners. If you normally drive a van with rear door windows, you might find it difficult to get used to a Sprinter solid partition that obstructs your view. We usually recommend that van owners seek out a Sprinter van partition with a window to maximize the other benefits without reducing visibility.
- Brands and materials available: Finally, your Sprinter van partitions are only as good as the companies that manufacture them and the quality of the materials used. Look for Sprinter van partitions constructed from durable materials and manufactured by reliable companies, such as Ranger Design.
Sprinter Partitions Options
When it comes to Sprinter cargo van partitions, you've got several options available. Now that you know what features and benefits to look out for, you should discover the different variations of Sprinter safety partitions and determine which will meet your needs. The Sprinter bulkhead partition options include:
- Solid aluminum, with or without a window: Solid partitions form a straight wall from the ceiling of your van to the floor. The aluminum construction makes it lightweight, and they are available as a continuous wall or with a window built-in.
- Contoured aluminum, with or without a window: These partitions are contoured to provide more room for seat movement in the cabin without restricting floor space in the cargo area. As with solid partitions, contoured aluminum partitions are lightweight and available with or without a window.
- Contoured composite: Contoured composite partitions offer exceptional benefits, including increased impact resistance, thermal stability in all weather conditions, noise dampening and temperature regulation.
- Aluminum sliding door: These partitions feature a sliding door for easy access from the front of the van. The door will not intrude into the cargo space, making it a convenient feature for those who desire two access points to their cargo hold.
- Steel partitions: These partitions are made from galvanized steel and are among the most popular choices for Sprinter van owners.
- Steel swing door partitions: These partitions also consist of galvanized steel and feature a convenient latching door.
Choosing the Right Partitions for Your Sprinter
We proudly carry ten Sprinter van partitions, each with different styles and functions designed to meet your needs. Let's take a look at the major benefits of each type so that you can better identify which is right for your work:
- Contoured aluminum partition: Lightweight and durable, this Sprinter contoured aluminum partition fits around headliner foam and provides maximum seat travel without sacrificing floor space.
- Solid crew van partition: This aluminum partition is only for high roof vans. The lightweight material is cut to provide a custom fit, completely separating the cabin area from the cargo area. Like the Sprinter contoured solid partition, the design of the crew van partition allows it to fit around headliner foam blocks.
- Contoured partition with a window: Fitting both Sprinter vans with high and low roofs, the Sprinter contoured partition with a window is made from aluminum and tempered glass, so it's lightweight yet durable. Its contoured design allows for seatback travel as well as maximum floor space, and it fits around headliner foam.
- Solid crew van partition with a window: Made for high roof models, this solid crew van partition with a window features a tempered glass window and a custom cut to install behind a sliding door. It is made from lightweight aluminum and fits around headliner foam blocks.

It features a tempered glass window and fits around headliner foam. The lockable sliding door does not intrude into the cargo area.
- Contoured composite partition: Sprinter contoured composite partitions fit Sprinter vans with low and high roofs. Their composite makeup is designed for noise dampening, maximum impact resistance, and thermal stability. Their tight fit regulates heating and cooling within the cab.
- Contoured composite partition with a window: The Sprinter contoured composite partitions with a window are made from impact-resistant composite materials that dampen sound and regulate temperatures. Its contoured shape allows maximum floor space in the cargo area and seatback travel in the cab.
- Steel straight partition: Sprinter steel straight partitions are designed for Sprinter vans of both high and low heights. Made from galvanized steel, these partitions allow a 5-inch setback for seat movement and fit around headliner foam blocks. They feature a mesh section for visibility into the cargo section and are one of our most popular models.
- Steel pass-through partition: Made from galvanized steel, Sprinter pass-through partitions provide economical protection. Since they come in two parts, they're also easy to install. They fit around headliner foam and have a 5-inch setback to allow for seat travel.
- Steel swing door partition: Designed for high and low roof Sprinter vans, the Sprinter steel swing door partitions are versatile and economical. Made from galvanized steel, they feature a mesh section for visibility into the back and a convenient latching door.
