Q.Is thermal efficiency greater with Reefervans modular lining System ?
A.YES. With Reefervan, standard 3 inches of high grade insulation means better thermal efficiency ensuring best performance. For many years traditional spray foam insulation has been the industry standard. The thermal efficiency of spray foam is lower, due to the inconsistency of the foam thickness. With spray foam Insulation thickness can vary from 1 to 3 inches, this affects the cooling performance of the reefer.
Q.Does spray foam warp the panels on vans ?
A.YES. The heat generated by spray foam causes panels to warp out of shape due to the heat and foam expansion pressure, the foam basically bends the steel skin of the van out of shape leaving an uneven visual warped look to the side of the van.
Today most vans on the market have large panels that can warp easy using sprayfoam. Reefervan do notspray any foam to the sides of the van, therefore there is no warping with Reefervan modular lining insulation systems.
Q.Why is the weight of insulation important ?
A. Reefervan insulation systems do not use wood framing, therefore, the light weight modular lining is
35% lighter than the spray foam method. With spray foam insulation, a lot ofheavy wood is used framing the van; the extra weight reduces the payload of product carried and increases fuel costs.
Reefervan modular lining systems do not use screws either in the construction thereby reducing the risk of damage to the van wiring or panels of the van when installing.
Q.How durable are Reefervan modular lining systems?
A.Reefervan only use seamless welded aluminum wheelboxes & load guard aluminum protection as standard where most of the wear & tear takes place. Reefervan lining systems are three times more durable than other insulation systems on the market.
Sprayfoam linings normally have wood walls & wheel boxes which are then covered in a thin plastic coating for protection. As everyday wear and tear takes place, the plastic skin wears away exposing the wood, while the cargo area is routinely washed, the wood gets wet and eventually rots.
Customers, who choose Reefervan modular lining insulation, appreciate the durability, performance and quality.

Q.Why Order Reefervan Insulation Panel Kits ?
Reefervan Insulation Kits were specifically designed with dealers & customers in mind. Kits are flat packed for better storage and lower shipping costs, and more can be transported at any one time. The Reefervan kits are fast and easy to install.
Reefervan panel kits can be ordered to suit specific vans & certain kits can fit several different vans thereby allowing dealers flexability with stock & they are able to accommodate more customers.
Insulation kits available on the market today are usually very specific to suit the customer's vehicle, therefore, not always in stock and more costly to both order and ship on an individual basis.
