Van floor

Hi all, I'm after a bit of advice. The ply floor in my van is starting to get ripped up a bit, so now it is catching on bags & ripping them. Do I just over board it or I think somebody mentioned stable matting, is this an option? The van has been boarded out & I have also fixed in racking, so it would mean cutting around this whatever I do.  Cheers.

  • Posted on here previously we use rubber sheeting on a continuous roll, easy to cut and it's own weight keeps it from moving. Various Internet suppliers and thicknesses available.  We put it down on top of the ply from new and it lasts for as long as we keep the vehicles.  From memory to cover a lwb ducato is around £180 Inc vat, if you need our suppliers details  let me know. Some of the stuff is garbage be warned!

    We use aluminium chequer plate on the heaviest load areas of the vans and screw it into the ply lining.

  • Neil. Resent hope you get it this time!

  • I have the same issue. I would like to fit something over the remaining ply. Either the rubber or checkerplate. Do you cut the material yourselves? Any suggested suppliers would be appreciated, I'd like to do this now before the plywood deteriorates any further. Thanks.
