Fire Protection Tanks
A Spray Foam Insulation system is used for freeze protection in fire protection tanks. This system may be applied to all types of tanks, including flat bolted, chimed bolted, glass lined, fiberglass, welded, stainless steel and concrete. Insulation provides energy savings by reducing the amount of electricity needed to heat the tank.
