Emory continuing education is located on the Briarcliff campus extension of Emory University.
The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System was installed on a ground storage tank for Emory University Library in Atlanta, GA. The tank is utilized to store water for Fire Protection.
The tank is a 28.6’ diameter x 34’ high welded tank. The project was completed on 10/28/2015. The customer was very satisfied with the crew, the product, and the result stating that our crew did “a great job” and that the “product looks Great!”
The RIDGLOK® Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing in grey laminated to 1.5” polyisocyanurate insulation board with an R-value of 9.6 using a cone roof system.
RIDGLOK® Insulated Panel Systems are utilized for freeze protection on fire water supply for wet sprinkler systems. Fire protection water storage tanks that are in colder regions are required to have tank heaters and permitted to be insulated to CONSERVE energy per NFPA 22 codes section 16.1-16.5. 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.
