This is normally the first stage in a conversion build and really does transform your van from a cold panel van to a warm and cosy place to spend a night under the stars.
If you don't plan on using your van as a camper and just want to enhance the look of your van then carpet trimming does make a difference and has the added bonus of suppressing the road noise so making it quieter to drive.
Need a cosy van in winter and cool van in the summer?
We use 13mm Armaflex closed cell foam insulation which has a Thermal conductivity (W/mk) of 0.036 which is the equivalent to 200mm of a wool type insulation.
- Self-adhesive and helps reduce panel drumming
- Absorbs external and internal sound
- Built-in anti-microbial protection reduces mould and bacteria growth
- Closed-cell insulation to provide a continuous barrier to water vapour
- Fibre-free to prevent potential air-quality problems
- Prevents condensation
Ply Lining and carpet trimming
Preparation is all important! Which is why we treat any holes left by ply lining kits with anti-corrosion paint and then fill with sealant. The metal work is then keyed and wiped down with a degreaser in preparation for the glue.
We use original VW panels where possible and use ply where extra strength is needed, this creates a factory look finish. All panels are held in place with invisible plastic fixings which means no screw holes and the panels can easily be removed should you need to get behind them again at a later date.
The carpet we use has a high stretch which means it can be worked around the complex contours of your van in one piece. There are a number of carpet colours to choose from to personalise your van these are some of the more popular colours.
We offer single colour or 2 tone finish which matches the existing plastic panels for that factory look which helps to keep the rear of the van from getting too dark in the back
We use industrial type flooring which is found in hospitals and factories which has aluminium trioxide throughout the thickness of the material and silicon carbide at the surface, which provides lifelong slip and abrasion resistance. Additional benefits include superior chemical and indentation resistance, which contribute to excellent product durability. We have an extensive range of colours and finishes from Gerflor, Altro, Tarkett and Polyflor.
If you want something a little softer on the feet then we can also fit a hardwearing carpet.
Are you getting a little tired of wall to wall carpet look? I know we are! So to combat the dreary dark carpet look we can offer side panels in a number of finishes be it laminate to match or complement your camper furniture from the Altofina range or colour perspex panels and aluminium composite panels in numerous colours and finishes.
