Question 1:

Who was the installing contractor for this project?

Several skilled contractors with various scopes of work participated on this project. This article highlights the allocation for Brock Canada Industrial.

Question 2:

Which key products were used in this project?

Over 70000 LM of aluminum and stainless steel SafetyJacs® cut & roll was used by Brock alone for their portion of this project. While not specified by the owner, SafetyJacs® was the choice of product by the installer.

Question 3:

What solution did those projects provide, and how was the value realized by the specifer and/building owner?

“GOAL-ZERO” is NWR's standard for an incident and injury free environment. That being said, SafetyJacs® was a perfect fit for this project. SafetyJacs® not only provided a safe handling leading edge, reducing potential lacerations, it also provided a better seal on the longitudinal lap reducing potential water ingress points that can contribute to CUI (corrosion under insulation). All other sides of the cladding pieces were factory deburred which also makes SafetyJacs® a superior product to traditional cut & roll when handling. Because the cladding pieces come standard with a 1/2" fold on the leading edge, it also boosted the installer’s productivity by reducing the amount of time to go back and re-tighten the previous piece when “fish-mouthing” occurs, thus providing labor savings.

Question 4:

Had traditional methods or competitive products been used, how might the project have been affected?

SafetyJacs® is manufactured by ACR (fully automated) technology, therefore each piece is produced with precision tolerances of 0.001" whereby current ASTM standards specifies up to 0.25". This ensures each piece is made with precision and quality each time. High capacities of ACR technology also helps when facing compressed schedules and tight timelines. At 1/3 of the production time, Ideal Products ACR machines currently produces up to 3x the capacity of a traditional machine. This ensured that Ideal Products was able to supply all of the product on time when required.

Question 5:

If a specifier incorporated this product(s) into his specifications or design standards with a single paragraph, how should it appear?

Straight portions of insulated piping shall have the insulation covered with metal jacketing, with all joints lapped at least 2 inches (51 millimeters) and arranged on horizontal center line with the lap turned down in order to provide water shed. All longitudinal seams shall have a 1/2 inch (12.7 millimeters) hem on the overlapping edge. Elbows, transitions, and other fittings shall be installed in a water shed fashion and seams sealed with caulking where necessary. Minimum allowable thicknesses shall conform to ASTM C1729 for aluminum, and C1767 for stainless steel, unless otherwise specified by the purchaser.

Question 6:

Where can specifiers find the most current technical data sheet and/or safety data sheet for this product?
