Foamlite®-lining sheets for RVs, caravans and camper vans
Camping is a lifestyle: Going on holiday without leaving your own four walls, spending evenings by the caravan enjoying the sunset or taking a flexible day trip – more and more people want to experience this. For optimum relaxation, manufacturers are constantly working to improve comfort, safety and efficiency. We support them in developing efficient, durable RVs, caravans and camper vans with lining/wall panels made from our lightweight material Foamlite®.
Wall panels, interior wall material/lining, door cladding, flooring and partitions
Foamlite® lining sheets
Foamlite® is a closed-pore foamed plastic that combines low weight with high mechanical stability. Foamlite® lightweight sheets:
Reduce the weight and increase the efficiency of motor homes, caravans and camper vans
Are robust and durable
Have a high-quality appearance
Foamlite® lining sheets - Application areas
Manufacturers of motor homes, caravans and camper vans use Foamlite® lining panels to produce very light, robust and visually high-quality:
Front floor panels
Gas cylinder box floor panels
Floor panels in the storage compartment
Product range – Foamlite®
Foamlite® sheets are available for cladding transport vehicles in many different formats, thicknesses, colours:
Sheet thicknesses: 6 – 21 mm
Widths: up to 2000 mm
Lengths: According to customer needs, theoretically unlimited, no waste
Surface: Surface grained on both sides with high scratch resistance possible
Foamlite® lining sheets – Properties
As a closed-pore foamed material, Foamlite® has a low density of just 0.65 g/cm³. Foamlite® is almost 30 percent lighter than comparable compact sheets. With their low weight, light construction elements made of Foamlite® help with weight reduction, thereby making a contribution towards fuel efficiency for your caravans, motor homes and camper vans.
Foamlite® lining sheets are available as a slip-resistant option with a "cubic grain" surface – tested in accordance with DIN 51130-R10. The slip-resistant surface offers a high level of safety, preventing objects from slipping in caravans and motor homes. Fixed shelving systems for secure storage of small objects can also be made from sheets of slip-resistant Foamlite®.
Easy to work with
Foamlite® lining sheets can be worked on using conventional tools for wood and metal. The material is also easy to screw and rivet. We have extensive experience in the reliable mounting of our boards using various fastening elements. Contact us. Foamlite® is also very easy to weld.
Foamlite® is available with a smooth or double-sided grained surface with high scratch resistance. Surfaces made of Foamlite® make a contribution towards the long-lasting high-quality appearance of caravans, motor homes and camper vans.
Good insulation properties
Air pockets in the foam core offer good thermal insulation and soundproofing. Lightweight construction elements made of Foamlite® therefore help to regulate the temperature in caravans, motor homes and camper vans.
High resistance to UV radiation, weather and moisture
Foamlite® vehicle construction sheets include high UV and weather resistance and are also very resistant to moisture, which makes them suitable for long-term outdoor use.
Foamlite® includes high mechanical stability and shock resistance, and therefore has a very long service life
Low-maintenance – easy to clean
Foamlite® lining sheets can be cleaned quickly and easily with commercially available cleaning agents and are very low-maintenance. Foamlite's® closed-pore foam core does not allow any material to penetrate into the pores. Compared to conventional materials used in the market, such as wood or multiplex boards, Foamlite® offers many advantages when it comes to cleanliness and hygiene. Commercially available coated plywood sheets and textured, coated board can quickly become scratched and absorb moisture and dirt. This in turn can lead to swelling and rotting. In commercially available honeycomb panels, dirt and moisture can remain in the honeycombs and form a culture medium for mould and bacteria.
Very high abrasion resistance
Surfaces in commercial vehicles must withstand high mechanical wear and tear in many areas over the long term. Tests in our in-house materials laboratory show that Foamlite® vehicle construction sheets have significantly higher abrasion resistance in comparison with tested conventional plywood (textured coated board) vehicle construction sheets.
Foamlite® has a "built-in" hinge. All that is required is a 90 degree milled V-notch. This means it is very easy to make doors with V-grooves, for example. This saves time in the manufacturing process and eliminates additional material costs for hinges, screws and rivets.
