How Does Speedliner Protect Your Van?

You may have noticed that more and more business owners and private individuals are lining the interior of their vans. They are finding it a useful and cost-effective vehicle modification.

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), there are more vans on UK roads than ever before. If you own one of the four million vans that make up business fleets in the UK, you may be interested in the benefits of getting the interior of your van lined.

Protecting a Van Interior

When you think of a van lining, you may picture the common plywood lining that is so good at protecting the inside of the van from scratches and dents. Heavy equipment and goods can cause a lot of damage to the interior of a van. Before you know it, corrosion has set in. The van looks bad, which is not good for the image of your business, and it costs hundreds of pounds to fix.

However, for some businesses, simple plywood is not an appropriate material for a lining. Some businesses need a liner that can be repeatedly washed down and that is not absorbent.

When you have a waterproof Speedliner fitted in your van from a supplier such as, it will help you to comply with the relevant hygiene regulations.

Waterproof Van Liner

In the past, most van owners turned to fibre glass as the best washable and waterproof interior coating for a van. The downside to fibreglass is that it can crack and take on a ‘crazed’ appearance caused by multiple hair-line splits in the material. It does not maintain its colour very well, so it can look shabby quite quickly and it is expensive to source and fit.

The material used in waterproof liners is durable and can be adapted to many different applications. It is possible to use a variety of additives which will make it repel bacterial or provide an anti-slip surface. It also comes in a range of colours.

For vans used in the cleaning industry, it provides an interior lining that will stand up to most cleaning chemicals and is tough enough to withstand knocks and bangs caused by heavy cleaning equipment. The anti-slip surface helps to prevents slips and falls as workers are getting in and out of the van.
