Bulkhead door is located just behind the driver and passenger seating area in a van. It acts as a separator between the seating area and the cargo area in a van. It is very useful for keeping the cargo in one place so that it does not move too much or interfere with the passengers or driver.It is fitted tightly towards the sides, bottom and top of the van to keep it secure. It is made of solid steel panel with perforations on the wings for clear view or visibility outside the van. Some vans also have are movable panel for allowing access to cargo area.
One of the primary functions is to keep the passenger and driver safe. Transportation of large and heavy cargo in a vehicle can be dangerous if the cargo is not properly secured and safeguarded. A lot of times, it results in distraction and inconvenience to the driver. To prevent the cargo from shifting load, bulkhead door is very useful. So even if the driver suddenly breaks, there is nothing to worry about the safety of the driver or damage to the cargo!
Another reason why it is very useful is because it helps to organize cargo in the van. It keeps the cargo secured at one place and avoids the mess. It also prevents the cargo from damage and avoids losses.
