What Is A Clarks Bunk Van?

April 18, 2023

A Clarks Bunk Van is essentially a commercial campervan (sometimes referred to as a “sleeper van”) and is a convenient and effective way of providing necessary shelter, amenities, and services, in often hostile working environments, where permanent welfare facilities are difficult or impossible to provide.

A Clarks Bunk Van can be seen as a Clarks Welfare Vehicle with the addition of sleeping facilities, and like a Clarks Welfare Van, it is typically used as an onsite resource for personnel engaged in industries such as:

  • Construction
  • Utilities
  • Infrastructure projects
  • Building sites
  • Quarries
  • Rail maintenance

Multiple Configurations Available

Depending on site conditions, or workers requirements, Clarks Bunk Vans can be converted (or modified) to incorporate very basic or more complex features, from a simple resting space through to a full range of living facilities. The configuration of these vans depends on the clients requirements - and here at Clarks we are always more than happy to discuss your needs.

Employee Welfare In Focus

Welfare conversions, in general, essentially provide the safety and care that companies are legally obliged to deliver in today’s working environment. Vans with additional seating comply with Type Approval and can transport small teams of employees to sites for the working period and safely back when the shift ends. While on site, employees are able to make use of a variety of integral features for maximum comfort. Commercial Campervans include single/bunk beds and can also include:

  • Toilet facilities
  • Sinks with hot and cold running water
  • Microwave ovens
  • Fridges
  • Seating and dining areas
  • Changing areas

Exterior Safety Features

While it’s essential that employees’ welfare is catered for inside the vehicle, it is just as important to have safety covered on the outside. As our Bunk Vans can be used in many secluded locations, it’s paramount that all safety aspects of van use is covered: anti-slip flooring and stable access/steps are features that help to prevent trips and slips in wet or muddy conditions; with external features such as:

  • Exterior lighting
  • Audible reversing signal
  • Parking sensors
  • Rear camera
  • Chapter 8 livery

A Self-contained Solution

It’s reassuring to know that Clarks Bunk Vans are designed to be completely self-sustainable for off-grid use. Powerful battery packs and optional solar panels keep appliances running at peak performance to provide lighting, heating, and cooking facilities, and USB points keep mobile phones and other devices charged. 

Clarks Bunk Vans provide the welfare and comfort that the modern workforce deserves; with a range of configurations to consider and a great choice of facilities and bespoke options to keep your team safe and mobilised.
