Fire Protection Tank Insulation

G Tank 3.2.10

What is a Fire Protection Tank Insulation System?

A lot of commercial, industrial, and municipal properties choose to install fire protection storage tanks as an added layer of protection in the event that a fire occurs. These tanks provide an immediate supply of water, eliminating the risk of water shortages should an emergency arise. Often, these tanks are situated above ground, and while this ensures easy access, it also means that the tank – and the water that it contains – is subjected to the effects of the environment; namely, fluctuating temperatures. This means that if temperatures drop below freezing for an extended period of time, the water within the tank could freeze, rendering it inaccessible and useless should a fire break out.


To alleviate this problem, the National Fire Protection Association has implemented a Standard for Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection (NFPA22). According to this standard, tanks that are subjected to freezing conditions must be heated. Controlling the temperature of the liquids that are stored in your tanks can be a complicated and costly endeavor. A fire protection tank insulation system is an efficient, economical solution that can prevent the tank – and the contents within it – from freezing. The insulation system is designed of special materials that have been proven to effectively regulate the temperature of fire protection tanks.

Types of Fire Protection Tank Insulation Systems

At Thermacon, a leading tank insulation product supplier, we offer several different fire protection tank insulation systems. All of our systems are custom-designed and can be made from a variety of materials. The following is a brief overview of some of the different options that we can provide:


  •         Fiberglass insulation. Fiberglass is one of the most widely-used insulation materials. Given that it’s a lightweight, low-density, and cost-effective material, it’s easy to see why.
  •         Mineral wool. Mineral wool has become a very popular material in the tank insulation industry. Not only it is a highly effective insulator, but it is very durable and has a longer lifespan. While it is more expensive than fiberglass, because it lasts longer, it offers a good return on investment. It’s better for the environment, too.
  • Polyisocyanurate foam. One of the most efficient insulation materials, this foam is used for tank jackets. To ensure maximum protection, the foam is lined with other materials, such as fiberglass or mineral wool.
