This RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System was installed on a ground storage tank for Academy Sports’ new location in Cookeville, TN. The welded tank was utilized to store water for fire protection. The tank was a 40.6’ diameter x 34’ in height, welded tank.
The project was started in the fall of 2015 when the weather in Tennessee can be anything from sunny and 65°F to snow and 25°F. Despite problems with gusty winds the project was completed on schedule.
The RIDGLOK® Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing in white laminated to 1.5” polyisocyanurate insulation board with an R-value of 9.6 using a straight design roof system.
The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation system is used for freeze protection in fire protection tanks. The panels can be applied to all types of tanks, including flat bolted, chimed bolted, glass-lined, fiberglass, welded, stainless steel, and concrete. The tank does not need to be taken out of service to install the system. Insulating fire protection tanks with RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulation provides energy savings by reducing the amount of electricity needed to heat the tank.
