Fast and Effortless Installation by Professional Crews

We install tank insulation systems with field crews who are factory-trained, direct employees. Our construction crews receive more than 120 hours of in-house safety training. This guarantees your project is completed safely and efficiently. Globaltherm has earned an impressive safety record—our EMR reflects a safety record substantially better than the industry average.

Vertical Sidewall System

Globaltherm manufactures a vertical sidewall system that consists of foil-faced polyisocyanurate foam insulation, in various thicknesses, laminated to a stucco-embossed, polyester-paint-finish, aluminum outer sheathing. Each standing seam is 24” wide, with lengths up to 53 feet. Our design allows us to accommodate any tank height. The insulation panels are secured to the tank by an internal cable-and-clip system that is secured within the standing seam of each panel.

Horizontal Sidewall System

Globaltherm manufactures a horizontal panel system that consists of foil-faced polyisocyanurate foam insulation in various thicknesses, laminated to a metal outer sheathing. Each panel is factory-curved to match the tank's radius. Panels are secured to the tank with 3"-wide aluminum or stainless steel external banding spaced on two-foot vertical centers. Unique tensioned “bandsion assemblies” are installed at calculated intervals in each band row. This allows for operational expansion and contraction of the insulation for climate fluctuations, such as extreme temperature changes. Additionally, individual horizontal panels are removable so that access can be gained to the tank sidewall for inspection or repair.
