Heat & Sound Insulation

It wasn’t until the 1980s that cars really started to become the cool, calm, cosseting cabins of tranquility one expects of a luxury saloon produced today. Fortunately, with the advance of technology and expectations, we are able to retro-fit these refinements to any classic Aston Martin. To compare the occupant experience of a standard DB4 as it was when it left the factory in 1959 with that of a car we have prepared leaves little doubt of the benefit of investing in the benefits of these enhancements.

Hot air is often free to find its way from the engine compartment to the cabin which is most unwelcome in the summer months. A massive amount of heat radiates up from the exhaust system and is conducted through the floor, usually on the passenger side, making for uncomfortable trips on warm days. We offer the very latest in heat barrier to put a stop to heat transfer to the passenger cabin. Furthermore, engine and gearbox heat and sound are easily transferred through the fibreglass transmission tunnel causing discomfort and fatigue on long-distance journeys.

We have all the answers to all but prevent these issues often associated with older cars and enhance your car to make ownership much more of a pleasure. Our completely tailorable packages and options are completely hidden from view and will be present only in the absence of heat and noise. We also offer a very subtle window film capable of blocking UV light from entering the cabin resulting in a 40% decrease in heat via sunlight through your glass. Additionally, our thin heat barrier can be fitted to the headlining of your car, boosting the heat-blocking benefits.

The sound a car’s door makes when closing is often cited as the measure of the quality and refinement of that car. We have tirelessly sought-out the most solid, quiet and rattle-free door closure quality we can muster. The result is a real pleasure. You are invited to our workshops to experience this for yourselves! Investment in these areas will distinguish your car from others no end.
