Commercial Van Wall Liners

Throughout the workday, a van's durability often gets put to the test. Between rough roads, unexpected short stops and frequently putting equipment in and taking it out, the movement of tools can give your fleet of vans quite a beating. They can scuff the inside of a van and create extra noise, putting a frustrating kind of occupational stress on your drivers. Thankfully, there's a product that can fix these issues.

Commercial van liners are an excellent investment for any business or contractor that uses vans to get to and from jobs. Van wall liners can help protect your van from the dings and dents of your tools and help create a more comfortable environment for your drivers. This article explains how these durable van wall liners, including commercial van ceiling liners, van door liners and van wall liner packages, can help your fleet.

Why Invest in Van Wall Liners for Your Commercial Work Van?

2-why-invest-in-van-wall-liners-for-your-commercial-work-van.jpg

Investing in your vehicle or fleet offers several benefits to your vehicles, drivers and business as a whole. Wall liners are a long-term solution that can help in a wide variety of ways. These benefits include:

  • Protecting your equipment and vans: One of the most significant uses of van wall lining is that it helps keep your van safe from dents, scuffs and scrapes as your tools rattle around during the workday. You can keep your van in better condition for resale and prevent your tools from becoming damaged as well. Plus, you won't have to pay expensive repair costs if something happens to the vehicle.
  • Sound deadening: Limit your drivers' headaches by keeping the clatter of equipment to a minimum. Commercial van liners absorb the sound from these impacts and make the ride more comfortable for drivers. Happier employees can lead to better employee retention and higher profits. Revenues increased by an average of 22.2% for the companies on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2014. Reducing sound stress can help make the ride more enjoyable and improve the workday for your drivers.
  • Heat retention: Van wall, door and ceiling liners will also help with insulation in a van. It can help keep drivers warm during the cold months as well as cut down on fuel costs that would otherwise be spent heating the van. Make a move toward a more energy-efficient fleet with insulating van liners.
  • Professional appearance: A clean, neat van without any scrapes or dents makes you come off as much more professional. Your clients won't see a dingy, beat-up vehicle as you get your tools out. They can see that you run a business that prioritizes care and holds high standards of quality.
  • Neat, precision-cut to fit specific van models: A precise cut looks clean, fitting your van perfectly. It also makes installation smooth and painless. In most instances, you won't need to cut or modify the liner at all.

Investing in commercial van liners is an investment in the success of your business. It can affect the physical health and morale of your drivers, along with your revenue stream. Liners aren't just a short-term change, either. They last for years, providing long-term benefits to your bottom line.

What Commercial Van Liners Does Advantage Outfitters Offer?

While lining only some parts of a van still has a few benefits, you can fully line a vehicle with different types of liners — combining all three creates an R4 thermal barrier and offers energy efficiency for your van. Advantage Outfitters, LLC offers:

  • Van ceiling liners 
  • Van wall liners
  • Van door liners

Each kind of liner uses a heavy-duty gray plastic to protect your vehicles, equipment and drivers from problems related to damage, sound and heat. The plastic barrier blocks scuffs and dents while absorbing sound from the cargo bay. All options are easy to install, with self-drilling screws and pre-drilled holes. Commercial van door liners include rear door window panels and sliding door panels, depending on your vehicle.

In addition to quality van liners, we also offer accessories like shelving, drawer systems, safety partitions, bumper and grille protection and much more.

Van Model Wall Liner Options

At Advantage Outfitters, we have made a name for ourselves with our variety of van liners custom-built for different models. Whether you need wall liners for ProMaster, Transit or Sprinter vans or liners for another brand or part of a vehicle, Advantage Outfitters is there. Some of the most popular vans that we offer liners for include:

  • Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
  • Ram ProMaster and ProMaster City
  • Ford Transit and Transit Connect
  • Chevy Express and Savana
  • Mercedes Metris
  • Nissan NV

For most of these vehicles, we have two liner brands for you to choose from: vanLiner and Legend Fleet.

Complete with pre-drilled holes, vanLiner panels have 3/16-inch thicknesses and are available in plastic wall panels and door panels. They offer similar protection but without the insulation at a price that may be more affordable for some companies.

As for Legend Fleet, they provide thicker panels with the benefit of insulation. Our Legend Fleet wall liners include half-inch thick Duratherm insulation to keep the van at a more consistent, enjoyable temperature and to absorb sounds. If you need R4 insulation or sound deadening, Legend Fleet can get the job done. Remember that insulation is more effective if you cover the entire vehicle's interior, not just the walls, so be sure to grab door panels and ceiling liners if you want to insulate as well as protect. Our cargo van wall liner kits include multiple liners in one package.

When ordering your van liners, you'll need to know a few things about the vehicle, such as the ceiling height, and whether it is low, medium or high. You'll also need to know the wheelbase of your van, with standard sizes that include 130 and 148 inches. If your vehicle has sliding doors, that will influence your purchase, too. Be sure to select the appropriate door style — swing or sliding — to get the right fit.

Whatever van your fleet uses, Advantage Outfitters provides liners specially made to fit that vehicle. Between van-specific options and cut-to-fit customization, you can be confident that your commercial van liners will provide a snug, clean fit. If for some reason, you have problems with your liners, you can contact us for help with our 100% satisfaction guarantee and 10-year product warranty. If you're not satisfied with the results of your van liner, we can process a refund or exchange within 30 days of purchase. 

How to Install Wall Liners in Commercial Work Vans

With these custom-built solutions, installing a door panel is pretty straightforward. You will need:

  • An impact driver
  • A Phillips tip
  • T40 star bit
  • A 5/16 drill bit
  • Self-drilling screws, plastic caps and push-in plugs or retainers included with your liner kit.

While specific instructions can vary based on design and cover type, the general process for installing cargo van wall liners is as follows.

  1. Use the T40 star bit to remove the factory tie-downs or D-rings on the wall.
  2. Align the panel to the contours of the vehicle.
  3. Line up the holes and remount the tie-downs. If the holes don't line up, use your 5/16 drill bit to enlarge them.
  4. Push the retainer plugs into the larger holes at the edges of the liner.
  5. Fasten the rest of the panel with the screws and screw caps, placing them in the smaller holes. Be careful not to overtighten the screws, which could damage the caps.
  6. Flip the covers over the screwheads and snap them into place.
  7. Repeat this process for all of your liners.

Each van type can have different quirks and unique pieces of installation advice, so be sure to check out our how-to videos and find the one that corresponds with your vehicle. That page will also lead you to written instructions for different vehicle configurations. Overall, we aim to make installation simple, with pre-drilled holes and push-in components that limit the need for specialized hardware and can save your company time and money. 

Complementary Products

Of course, it doesn't stop at wall liners. If you want to give your van a complete overhaul or add on some needed accessories, we can help with that too. We carry an array of products to make your van tougher and more organized.

You can help the workday run more smoothly with organized shelving systems where every tool has its place. Or, you can add a drop-down ladder rack to keep your ladder in easy reach. Here are a few of our additional products that can take your van upgrade to the next level.

  • Shelving packages: A shelving system is another way to keep your tools from rattling around in the cargo bay. It can help secure your tools with the help of galvanized steel end panels, extruded aluminum shelves and composite shelf bottoms. Each package is complete with mounting brackets and hardware. Typically, they'll take one to two hours to assemble and another one to two hours to install. Available in a wide variety of van types, these shelf systems come in packages designed specifically for certain trades. Plumbers, electricians, delivery drivers and HVAC workers can all benefit from shelving that meets the needs of the tools in their field.
  • Floors and rubber mats: Flooring and rubber mats offer many of the same benefits as wall liners, like insulation, protection from and for tools and noise deadening features. Add them to your van to enhance the effects of your liners. We offer a variety of flooring products like aluminum floors, rubber floor mats and composite wood floors. You can opt for rubber floor mats that are affordable and help increase traction while protecting your floors from scuffs, oils and chemicals. For more protection, aluminum floors are strong and durable, protecting against sharp cargo and other damaging items. Wood floors offer a combination of affordability and protection.
  • Ladder racks and access ladders: We have several different styles of ladder racks to hold that climbing tool as you drive and bring it to easy access when you're ready for it. They feature ergonomic designs and hydraulic assistance to prevent physical strain while accessing the ladder. Automatic restrains and padlock compatibility add safety and security to a ladder rack. Access ladders go on the back of your van and can help employees get to the roof more easily, preventing injury to staff and damage to your vehicles while making the workday a little less stressful for employees.
  • Roof rails and decks: Roof rails and roof decks help you store more tools atop the van and protect the roof of it from damage. They provide secure restraints to keep tools in place. You can even add a catwalk to a roof deck to give employees easier access to rooftop tools.
  • Accessories: Depending on the layout of your van and shelves, you may want to add certain accessories to improve access, safety or security. We offer accessories like light strips, handles, hooks, parts drawers, bottle holders, bins and more. Use these accessories as needed for a more organized, accessible cargo bay.

Every business can benefit from a custom-outfitted van. Between secured tools, durable linings and trade-specific storage options, you can make your employees' jobs safer and easier and protect your investments from damage.
