Skoolie Insulation

As school bus conversions (aka skoolies) become more popular for recreational and commercial purposes, LizardSkin has had a lot of new customers looking for a better way to keep their bus conversion cool and comfortable. Many metal school buses do not come with insulation, so the interiors can quickly become uncomfortable and filled with rattles and road noise.  For drivers looking to convert their school bus into a tiny home, LizardSkin Ceramic Insulation helps combat hot temperatures that cause uncomfortable sleeping quarters.

Heat Protection & Sound Damping for Skoolies

Lizard Skin Ceramic Insulation can help protect your skoolie from the elements. Lizardskin provides premium thermal insulation for skoolies in an easy, spray-on application. The coating reduces excessive heat transfer, making time in your school bus cooler and more comfortable, especially for long trips.

Noise can also be an issue with school bus conversions. The metal panels can cause loud rattling that makes it hard to talk to other passengers, take phone calls, or listen to music. If you’re traveling long distance in your skoolie, this can quickly become unbearable. With LizardSkin Sound Control, you can reduce noise so your trip becomes enjoyable once again.

School Bus Conversion FAQ

Q: Does LizardSkin-CI (Ceramic Insulation) replace the need for conventional insulation in my skoolie?

A: You will need to design your total insulation system based on your individual needs.  If you plan on dwelling in a wide range of climates, you will likely need additional types of insulation.  When combined with traditional insulation, LizardSkin Ceramic Insulation can reduce the likelihood of moisture forming on the surface.  This will prevent performance degradation due to moisture absorption and future mold and mildew issues.

Q: Do you offer discounts for people purchasing large quantities for their school bus conversion projects?

A: We do! Simply use code SKOOLIE when you purchase through LizardSkin’s online store to save 30%. Minimum order amount applies.

Easy Spray-On Applications for Heat Protection & Sound Damping for School Bus Conversions

Because LizardSkin is a spray-on coating, applying the products is quick and easy compared to typical mat insulation products. There is no cutting and pasting that is typically associated with mat insulation, and LizardSkin takes a fraction of the time to apply. If you’re looking to start a trip quickly and need heat protection or sound damping for your skoolie before you go, then LizardSkin is the bus insulation to choose. More importantly, our coatings will seal your school bus against rust and corrosion, resulting in a longer life for your converted school bus.
