Hey guys. I work for a produce delivery company and we have a fleet of Chevy cargo vans. We have a problem with the floors getting too hot in the back (mostly in the summer) and heating up our food before we can deliver it. Does anyone have an idea of a cheap yet effective solution? We've tried laying cardboard down but that doesn't seem to help much. Any help would be greatly appriciated. thanks!

You can try Dynomat for the floor. They make stuff for the motor bay that might work to keep the heat away..

I think LizardSkin has a spray-on heat insulator.

I would insulate under the floor, or heat shield the exhaust, because anything you put on the floors inside is going to get walked on, piled on, & get crushed down to where it's insulation properties will be gone. If you do go with the inside program, then maybe something similar to pallets that are strong & so there is an air space between the floor & the food.

for being industrial use imo i would suggest making a sub floor. this can consist of so much as 2 sheets of plywood. the plywood would most likely last longer than insulation but for sure wont look as nice.
