Fireproofing and scaffolding for insulation projects
To support our customers’ industrial insulation projects, we also supply fireproofing and scaffolding services, along with special products and prefabricated parts. Our prefabrication factories have proven valuable in turnkey projects, due to shorter installation times and cost-efficiency. Our in-house stock of scaffolding materials also enables delivery of larger scaffolding constructions, quickly and safely.
Modern machines and tools for sheet metal cutting and forming provide an opportunity to tailor products to the clients’ requirements. In this field, our offering includes prefabricated sheet-metal jacketing for insulation covers, such as straight pipes, elbows, reducers, tees, end caps, various boxes for valves and flange connections.
We also create custom sheet-metal products and light steel structures, as well as tested fire-safe boxes for valve actuators, targeting the oil and petrochemical industry in particular.
Insulation management and safety systems
The HL Insulation project model is based on certified ISO 9001 quality management standards, as well as SCC** and OHSAS 18001 health and safety management standards. The ISO 14001 standard for environmental management will also be in force by autumn 2012.
The fact that we follow standards systematically enables our customers to get a good overall picture of the project before installation begins. Thanks to well-structured procedures, project management and implementation can be handled smoothly and reliably in diverse cultures and locations.
Engineering, material deliveries and installation supervision
To support efficient planning and implementation of projects, we offer optional services related to engineering, material deliveries and installation supervision. In the project planning stage, we take care of insulation engineering and calculations based on the customer’s own drawings and other basic requirements.
We also handle the deliveries of insulation materials, including packing and transportation to seaports or other project destinations, while prefabrication can be included in the delivery. Should you need help in the installation stage, our team of specialists will take care of insulation supervision on site.
