The Work Truck Show 2016 Innovation Award was presented to Ranger Design (Ontario, New York) for the company’s Max View safety partition.
The Work Truck Show Innovation Award goes to the product at the Show deemed “most innovative” by a panel of trade media editors and truck fleet managers. All products entered in The Work Truck Show 2016 New Product Spotlight or New Product Media Guide programs are eligible.
Max View is a safety partition with a top portion molded out of clear thermoformed ABS and polycarbonate to snugly fit Ford Transit Connect, Ram ProMaster City and Mercedes-Benz Metris cargo vans. The Max View partition’s see-through feature greatly enhances cargo space visibility, reduces blind spots, permits more light into the cab and creates the feeling of a more wide open, less claustrophobic cab space, according to the company. The product’s contoured design allows the seats to travel to the full back position, and its precision fit reduces drafts for improved cab climate control while reducing rattle noise.
“Innovation is a part of our business strategy, and continuous feedback from our distributor network helped guide us in our design of the Max View partition,” said Steve Milizia, regional sales manager for Ranger Design. “We are extremely proud to be recognized for developing a product that helps satisfy what the industry is seeking — more efficiency and comfort in the performance of their everyday tasks.”
