Everything you need to know about cargo liner

While some of the cargo floor coverings we offer are referred to as “freight mats,” the majority are referred to as “cargo liners.” A cargo liner, regardless of the material it is composed of, covers the whole floor and has a raised lip on some or all of its sides. This elevated lip might rise up onto the cargo walls by one inch or many inches. Mats may not completely cover the floor surface and may have minimal or no lipping at the edges. Both cargo liners and mats can have smooth, flat surfaces or grooved ridges, cups, or other compartments to catch spilled solids and liquids.

You’ll come across numerous words used to describe the materials utilized in their construction, the majority of which are formed of carpets or polymers. Examples include “rubberized plastic,” “vinyl,” “thermoplastic,” and “synthetic rubber.” All forms of polymer fabrication will be referred to as vinyl for the duration of this text.

Some have no back lip or a flexible rear lip that folds down during loading and unloading, whilst other cargo liners have a raised rear lip. While making your decision, take into account the precise layout of your cargo room as well as how you want to use it. For instance, if your cargo compartment lacks a rear threshold, an upstanding back lip can be in the way. Moreover, a liner without a rear lip might not be able to effectively contain dirt.

Rubber and Vinyl Cargo Liners

Since they possess characteristics that are entirely different from those of the mats provided by the majority of vehicle manufacturers, aftermarket vinyl and rubber cargo liners are preferable. As they are totally impermeable to liquids, spills (or anything else) stay on top of their surface rather than being absorbed and leached onto the vehicle flooring below. And on the top surface, grooved grooves or raised borders around the sides safely contain liquids and debris without spilling over. With just a quick wipe to remove any lingering debris, vinyl and rubber liners may be thoroughly cleaned without even a trace of mold. These liners prevent getting sticky, maintain their odor-free properties even in below-freezing conditions thanks to new chemicals.
