The client required insulation on a Fire Protection Water Storage Tank at its Hopkinsville, KY plant.
The tank measured 53.56’ in diameter x 34.48’ in height. The RIDGLOK® Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing in white laminated to 2.0” of polyisocyanurate insulation board with an R-value of 13.1.
