Insulation Systems

All van conversions start with choosing an appropriate insulation system. Here in the NE we know cold. There are many different approaches to insulation but we have focused on what has proven to work well in the extremes of hot summers and sub freezing winters. Starting with an application of sound deadening panels in critical areas, we then insulate with either Thinsulate or wool insulation batting depending on customer preferences. We pay attention to all critical thermal bridging areas, to ensure the best thermal barrier is generated. We are happy to report we enjoy van adventures even in the dead of winter.
