It’s an essential part of upfitting your plumbing van. A bulkhead makes a separation between the cargo and driver, protecting the driver from shifting load. It keeps work tools in the back of the van, ensuring your safety while you drive from one job site to another. By setting up a van partition, you’re designating a cargo space in the van.
