If you have an air heater, we consider the vehicles to be sufficiently insulated for outside temperatures of up to 2 degrees. Of course, with a suitable sleeping bag, you can also spend the night in the camper when the temperature is below zero. If you want to travel more often between October and March, we recommend that you completely isolate yourself.
Regardless of your base vehicle, all of our floor panels are already coated with 6 mm NMC Insul Roll as standard. In combination with your rubber/carpet or your standard plate, this is sufficient. If you have a van with a sheet metal floor, we can increase the insulation to 18mm to 30mm.
The glazing of your vehicle depends on the configuration. There are standard glazing and double glazing. Both variants are fine for the months of April to October. If you want to permanently convert your bus into a camper, you should either pay attention to insulating glazing or even consider doing without one or the other window. For example, you could insulate the entire driver's side and only install a rear window and a sliding door window. The less window area, the better the insulation.
With a pure transporter, you can easily insulate the entire vehicle. This is not so easy for vehicles in which headliners are installed. Here you have to differentiate between a normal and a climatic sky. With a normal sky one could add insulation.
Many swear by Armaflex. We install NMC Insul Roll because it smells less and there is a more pleasant room climate. We consider this to be more important than "theoretically" better insulation values.
Absolutely. Insulating is actually a simple job that you can easily do yourself and save money as a result.
A distinction is made between thermal insulation and noise insulation. Alubutyl is available as a self-adhesive material. It is used to deaden body parts. You can often see that this material is also glued over the entire surface. This is not necessary. The function of minimizing vibrations of the body panel is also achieved by sections. It is important to also glue the wheel housing.
For vehicles with existing side panels:
The existing side paneling is reinserted after the insulation process.
For vehicles without side panels:
For most vehicles, there are ready-made side panels made of wood or composite materials that can be ordered and attached to the original points. These panels can either remain in their raw state or be laminated with vehicle felt or vehicle upholstery fabrics.
In addition to the above design, there is the question of the body parts that cannot be covered by the panels. For example, the window bars and parapets. The only option here is to work with vehicle felt, as this can be glued directly to the sheet metal and, due to its rough texture, allows a visual transition to the edge of the window.
