Traditional Wet-lay Fibreglass

Traditional fibreglass insulation has been a main stay in Ballinlough since the day we opened.  it has proven to be an effective solution in the transport refrigeration industry due to its durability & cost effectiveness. The gel coat finish provides a hygienic environment, ideal for food and perishable goods. This can be done to any panel van, big or small. With an array of options, we can fully customise our insulation to meet our customer’s needs.

How it’s Done?

  1. The van is lined with 50mm or 75mm of insulation depending on the required temperature
  2. The insulation is then covered with sheets of marine grade ply wood for added strength and protection
  3. Finally, it is finished with incredibly strong gel-coating

  • Durable – This insulation can stand up to hard work, as it has proved over the years.
  • Price – Even today this proves to be the most cost-effective way of insulating a van
