Northern Insulation

Our Services

Thermal and Acoustical Insulation & Metal Fabrication
Mechanical insulation contracting has been the core service provided by Northern Industrial Insulation Contractors Inc. (Northern) since 1984. Installation of mechanical insulation often involves a variety of piping systems and sizes, all operating under differing conditions and in differing environments within the same facility.

Other insulated components often include: vessels, equipment, tanks, boilers, ductwork, precipitators, stacks, etc.
Northern utilizes an extensive selection of insulation products and cladding types designed to service thermal, cryogenic, acoustical and production purposes.

Our qualified insulation tradesmen install these materials to withstand the service demands of vibration, extreme temperatures and mechanical damage. Canadian weather and process design considerations are significant factors in the installation specifications for many projects.

Our qualified installation crews ensure that the finished product will endure fluctuating temperatures and variable seasonal conditions.

Our extensive project management and cost control systems are designed to provide accurate up-to-date reporting that is flexible enough to comply with virtually any client system.

Since 1984 Northern has performed thousands of mechanical insulation contracts which range in size from a few thousand dollars to multi-million dollar projects at petroleum or chemical plants.
