Carpet lining , insulation and sound proofing VW Transporter

Bespoke van lining service

At Professional Retrofits Limited we also offer a  bespoke lining and insulating service.  We have a choice of quite a few lining carpets and also SUEDE effect lining. Our prices are fixed. So you can clearly see what would it cost. All available extras will also be listed. Let me explain how we do it and what materials we use, enjoy reading 🙂  

Materials we use

Silent Coat 2mm Damping Mat

Silent Coat 2mm Damping Mat uses mass loading to lower panel resonance and absorb structural vibrations, converting them into low level heat. Stop those nasty rattles, eliminate road and outside noise, insulate your vehicle and dramatically improve the sound of your car interior.

For best results we aim to cover approx %70 of all panels. Obviously before we even start, we clean your vehicle throughout and treat all  holes left from previous ply lining or bulkhead with a  primer to prevent any rusting in the future.

 

 
 

Dodo Thermo Liner

Professional 7mm sound and heat insulation material for a quieter warmer, van or camper.  
Dodo Thermo Liner is a high grade foil lined closed cell foam and is ideal for use on the van sides, floor, roof etc. 
Available with our 3 stage insulation package. 

Dodo Thermo Fleece

Thermo Fleece offers a safe, sustainable and cost effective way to insulate your van. It contains 100% recycled polyester and is made almost entirely from recycled plastic bottles.  It is suitable for all vehicle applications, is non-irritant and requires no protective clothing when installing. It will not absorb moisture and does not support mould growth.

Trust me, we do not save on this, we will use 2,5 roll in LWB and 2 rolls for SWB Van. Thermo Fleece is absolutely enough to soundproof your bus and to keep  the cold out and also to keep the heat in. 

 

Carpet Lining 

Well, the nest step is to cover all visible metal and panels with carpet of your choice. We have very nice SOFT Touch carpet available in three colors, and Easyliner ( still soft but not as much as soft touch one ) available in six colors. Please see photos below for reference. 

 

 

Lining Carpet Colors

Roof lining- ceiling

From our point of view the headline is very important for the final look of the interior. For that why we have a range of Suede Fabric available. 

Also, headline is where your lights will be fixed too, If you decide to keep existing OEM VW interior lights, we can leave OEM VW ply lining  and fit extra two or more lights if required. 

If You wish to get rid of the VW lights and get spot lights instead, we will get you a complete new ply lining and fit new lights in it. Please see PRICE TABLE for pricing 

 

 

SUEDE effect lining

 

Clips- rivets, hidden or screws? 

Rivets, hidden or screws?... Decisions is yours, however I like the rivers the most, why? Because they are super strong and , in my personal opinion they do look good... Hidden  clips can not be seen but they are not as strong as rivers, and if you have a fair amount of insulation behind the panel... you need them to hold it well. Also they are not ideal for sliding doors.

Screws, we would only use them if we can not leave OEM VW ply lining. The rule is simple, we use only one type of fixing on the van.
