You looking to insulate your camper but first, let’s try to understand why car manufacturers do not make complete noise isolation right at the factory? Pretty strange, right, because it’s absolutely possible to do it on the factory floor. Let’s try to have car insulation explained in this article.

Well, many car owners are thinking about this: was it really impossible to make a good “noise” at the factory? Nevertheless, the cars of the initial, and today even the middle class are often deprived of soundproofing material or “glued” to them to a minimum.

The main reason that automakers do not make special insulating elements on the body is saving. Each noisy element cost a lot of money, and given the volume of production, it becomes even a lot more money.

The second reason, which is important as well, is time. Actions on the conveyor are scheduled in minutes, and high-quality soundproofing of the entire cabin requires a lot of time.

The third is overweight, a car with full insulation set will become several tens of kilograms heavier. However, already at the stage of developing a new model, automakers are seriously considering the issue of noise at the constructive level - they calculate the optimal fastening points for the exhaust system, select engine mountings, bearings, etc. The more expensive the car, the more serious the fight with noise external irritants would be.

There are two approaches to sound insulation. The first is doing everything by yourself. We less recommend it because lots can go wrong.

The second option is based on the use of ready-made full sound and thermal insulation kit. It includes a set of materials and a diagram of the car, which shows in what places and in what sequence to glue them. Although today the share of such kits on the market is negligible, they grow really fast because they provide a great opportunity to have an isolated car with minimum effort with the great price-for-value product.

Also, professional soundproofing kits are using special materials combined in several layers can reduce the sound load inside the car by up to 50%. Doing it with specialists is more expensive than doing it yourself. However, taking into account time wastage and possible errors during self-installation (improper application, irrational consumption of material), the difference in price between gluing in the studio and your own will not be large.

The quality of sound insulation kits depends on two key factors - the right choice of material and their competent application on the surface of the body. It is important to understand that there is no single universal option that absorbs the noise of any frequency and range. That is why experts use a kind of sandwich from several layers of materials with different characteristics and different underbody insulation kit. Their combined application allows for achieving the desired result.
