Enhancing Your Cargo Van With Liners

28 Mar

Owning a work vehicle is a big responsibility. It holds equipment, supplies and tools essential to your livelihood. Upfitting your van with equipment like drawers and shelving units can boost worker efficiency by cutting down turnaround times.

Liner kits are lightweight and easy to install. They also help your fleet get better gas mileage by insulating the interior.

Customization

When you’re evaluating van liners for your fleet, the quality of materials and functionality are important considerations. You’ll want to find a cargo van that looks clean and offers simple installation, so you don’t have to pay for labor costs or rely on staff members with specific skillsets. Additionally, liners are designed to help reduce liability risks for your crew as they work inside of the vehicles

Van floor liners keep the interior of your vehicle looking new, protecting it from scratches, stains, and general wear and tear. This helps retain resale value for the vehicle, and it prevents unnecessary damage to tools and equipment inside of the van.

A liner for the cargo area also offers heat retention and sound deadening options to keep the interior of your vehicle as comfortable as possible. This can be especially useful in hot weather, when the contents of the van can make the interior unbearably warm.

Van door panels are often uniquely shaped, so you’ll need to find a liner that matches their contours perfectly. Fortunately, there are plenty of options available, including plastic 3/16-inch door panels from Legend Fleet and vanLiner. They gel with your GMC Savana or Chevy Express van’s doors, shielding them from scrapes and dents. They’re also lightweight so they won’t raise your fuel consumption.

Insulation options for vans include fiberglass insulation, foam board insulation and rock wool. Fiberglass is a common choice for homes, but it’s not ideal for vans because it has low R-value per inch and tends to release harmful particles when compressed. Foam board insulation is more expensive, but it provides a much better R-value per inch and doesn’t release toxic particles. Rock wool is a semi-rigid batting material that provides excellent R-value, and it’s much easier to work with than fiberglass.

Insulation upgrades can be used alongside shelving packages that are often installed in cargo vans to store equipment, materials and tools. This allows them to be accessed and organized quickly while keeping the van insulated from the cold or hot air coming in through the doors.
