Reefervan premium insulation kits provide the highest quality and cooling performance available today. Insulation kits are available for every make and model of van that are easy to install
Reefervan insulated lining kits comprise of a composite laminated panel, with standard 3” thickness of high grade EPS/Polyiso panel insulation, machine bonded to a FRP Plastic incorporating a "woven" process to increase surface strength for durability.
Extremely lightweight, all walls, floor, bulkhead and roof are 100% insulated, and seamless. No spray foam or heavy wood is used in the panel construction.
CNC precision machine routing ensures a perfect fit to the van and panels are thermally balancedto the highest standards.
Reefervans insulation panel system ensures excellent cooling performance in high ambient temperatures of 100°F (38°C).
Insulation kits are available for every model of van to "do it yourself" install and we provide all training and online install instructions.

Spray Foam VS Panel Insulation
Reefervan do not use spray foam when insulating a van. Although spray foam is a good insulation material, there are two main disadvantages using spray foam.
There is no guarantee that the installer has applied the correct insulation thickness behind the wall skin, this can reduce the thermal efficiency and cooling performance dramatically!
Reefervan only use 3" compressed panel insulation which which guarantees a consistent thickness and thermal efficiency. No wood or framing is used that reduces the amount of insulation within the van, also adding a considerable weight increase reducing the payload of the van.
When spray foam is sprayed directly onto the external skin of the van, due to the expansion and adhesion application process of the foam to the vehicle's skin tends to "buckle and warp"the skin out of shape, leaving an uneven "hilly" panel surface (see above image).
Reefervan panel insulation is not applied or attached in any way to the exterior skin of the van so no skin distortion occurs with Reefervan insulation products.
Q.Is thermal efficiency greater with Reefervan insulation lining Systems ?
A. YES! Reefervan only use as standard, 3 inches of high grade panel insulation (EPS or Polyiso) with no wood framing used, meaning better thermal efficiency and ensuring best performance. For many years traditional spray foam insulation has been the industry standard. The thermal efficiency of spray foam reduces over time, due to chemical structure and the inconsistency of the foam thickness. With spray foam Insulation thickness can vary from 1 to 3 inches, affecting the cooling performance of the reefer dramatically.
Q.Does spray foam warp the side panels of vans ?
A. YES! The heat generated by spray foam causes the external panels to warp out of shape due to the heat and foam expansion pressure, spray foam basically warps 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 spray foam. Reefervan do not spray any foam to the sides of the van, therefore there is no warping with Reefervan modular lining insulation systems.
Q.How heavy is Reefervan insulation versus spray foam insulation and why is weight important ?
A. Reefervan insulation panel systems do not use any wood or wood framing in the construction, therefore panel light weight modular insulation lining is 35% lighter than the spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation uses heavy wood adding extra weight to the van reducing the payload of the van and amount of product you can carry, increasing fuel costs.
The weight of a typical Reefervan insulation kit averages at 500LB for a medium sized van.
Q.How durable are Reefervan modular lining systems?
A. Reefervan only use seamless welded aluminum wheel boxes & load guard aluminum protectionas standard where most of the wear & tear takes place. Reefervan lining systems arethree times more durable than other insulation systems on the market.
Spray foam linings normally have wooden walls & wheel boxes which are covered or painted in a thin plastic coating (FRP) for protection. As everyday wear and tear takes place, the skin wears away exposing the wood which can cause bacteria build up. When the cargo area is routinely washed, the wood gets wet and eventually rots. Reefervan do not use materials that can rot
Choosing Reefervan modular lining insulation, you will appreciate the durability, performance and quality of our product.
Q. Installers ... Why Order a Reefervan Insulation Panel Kit ?
Reefervan Insulation Kits are designed with quality and speed of install in mind. Insulation panel kits are flat packed for better storage and lower shipping costs. More that one kit can be transported at any one time.
Reefervan panel kits can be ordered to suit specific vans, however most kits can be adjusted to fit other similar models (high roof can be converted to a medium roof) thereby allowing installers flexibility stocking kits.
Other insulation kits available on the market today are usuallyspecific fit to a specific vehicle size, therefore the kit cannot be used on a different van size. This means inventory costs can be very high for installers if you want to have the right kit in stock, using Reefervan kits can avoid this costly downside.
Additional options like tread plate floor, polar walls shelving can be added at time of order.
