Heat Shields


Because reducing vehicle noise is a major concern with heat shielding, Dana is constantly researching how materials and design can be paired together or developed in different ways to accomplish this goal.

Dana’s line of Victor Reinz® thermal acoustic protective shielding (TAPS) offers multiple solutions to meet various thermal and acoustic management needs within exhaust or powertrain systems. TAPS protects vehicle systems from engine exhaust heat, and also insulates exhaust components to increase efficiency, fuel economy, and performance of both traditional and hybrid vehicles. A low mass design with fully hemmed edges eliminates vibrations and sharp edges, increasing worker safety.

Quick Facts

  • Multiple-layer construction protects from extreme temperatures and suppresses noise 
  • All major CAD platforms supported in the design of TAPS 
  • Rapid response time for prototypes and production 
  • Offers the protection you need for tough under-the-hood environments
