Be an Informed Consumer

You get only one opportunity to insulate your vehicle prior to upholstery. As a consumer, you need to read the “fine print,” ask questions and evaluate what these products will do for your ride. The ultimate goal is to control passenger cabin “Noise, Vibration and Heat” (NVH).

Six answers to seek:

Noise: Will the product stop body panels from vibrating noise into the passenger cabin?

Vibration: Will the product stop the transfer of sound waves from bouncing off the walls of the passenger cabin?

Heat: Will the product stop radiated and reflected heat from entering the passenger cabin?

Installation: What is involved to install the insulation product in the vehicle?

Cost: How much material will be required and how much wasted material will be left?

Time: How much time (and skill) do you need to complete the installation process?
