Thanks all for your prompt responses.
Have taken on board about fixing to the floor. It will be against a furniture board partition with the main area of the van so I might fix against it and the ceiling and leave the floor untouched.
Payload was a consideration, although I have an unladen mass of 2920, a MRO of 3141 and a MTPM of 3850, and we don't carry anything like a scooter so I am reasonably happy on the weight front. I was looking at reducing weight by using 3mm ply and bracing with 12mmx12mm batons, but decided that 6mm should do in the end as I can screw straight into the shelves.
My plan to stop anything falling out is that it will be against the inside wall of the van so will only fall out on acceleration, not braking and also I was thinking about maybe having a mesh luggage net stretched across the front. I looked at the Fiamm shelves, but not sure they are bespoke enough for what I want. I am a bit of a tidy freak and want a place for everything and everything in it's place and also to make use of every scrap of space.
