Lining material

Postby RYAINS » Wed Dec 08, 2010 9:27 am

G'day all,

I just made a aluminium box for my camp trailer with a friend (it came up magic!) and I'd like to line it. I can't think of the name of the stuff, but I see it used on heaps of surfaces etc and see it used for lining boxes.

I went to Bunnings and Clarke Rubber yesterday they had some but boy was it expensive! So just wondering if someone could tell me the name of the product and perhaps where I could buy it at a good price too.

Thanks
Geoff

We lined both our toolbox & the inside of our CT with marine carpet.

Is the stuff you are talking about the stuff they use to line ute trays?

We have all our work utes lined with the matting that has holes in it like in this link from Clark Rubber under the heading of Ute Matting. And YES it is not cheap....

Thanks for the replies... I was really hoping I could find something just as good or more than anything have it look the same at a cheaper price.

Thanks Ryains......That is very similar to a marine carpet and it is quite expensive. There is as you say a similar product in Bunnings....so why did you not want that one??

Have you tried your local carpet supplies place for an indoor/outdoor carpet, maybe an off cut or similar??

Marine carpet is $30 a metre at a carpet place and $40 a metre at BCF or a boating place. The rolls are 2metres wide, so you get a 1metre x 2metre peice for that price.
