Interior Finishing is how manufacturers complete an enclosed space, like a vehicle cabin, to ensure the safety and comfort of users. Heat shielding and foam help protect passengers and operators from harsh external environments or excessive heat from the engine or battery compartments. Interior Finishing also includes durable components to prevent wear on frequently used surfaces, molded covers and paneling to protect internal components or create useful features, and adhesive backed fabrics that help absorb noise and improve aesthetics within the space.
Learn how Boyd uses its manufacturing expertise, supply chain management and assembly processes to create a safe and visually appealing space for your customers with Interior Finishing. View resources below or more specific ones within the category tabs at the top of this section.
Exterior Finishing solutions help join and/or seal external components together as well as cover up rough joints and finished edges. These joints can be static and rigid or they may require flexing if they need to protect a hinge or dynamic surface. In either case, External Finishing solutions are vital to the protection of interior components as they prevent environmental exposure to less durable components. These finishing solutions rely on material selection and proper design in order to withstand a wide range of weather conditions, UV exposure, and wear and friction to help ensure longer product lifetimes and reduce maintenance.

Solutions like system information labels and graphic overlays are used to convey instructions and safety warnings to anyone who encounters your products such as technicians, operators, and customers. As more products use LED and LCD indicators, graphic overlays help increase your ability to communicate with customers and improve comprehension of your product status.
