As a fabricator of removable insulation covers for industrial and commercial insulation systems, Fit Tight Covers joins CSIA as a “distributor/fabricator” and MICA as an “associate member,” along with other manufacturers and distributors. Membership in these two trade associations will help raise awareness of the benefits of removable covers as a simple, cost-effective alternative for traditional mechanical insulation.

Fit Tight design specialist Calvin Brasel explains, “CSIA and MICA offer unique networking opportunities with many leaders within the mechanical insulation industry, and we look forward to sharing with them the Fit Tight commitment to quality and innovation.”

CSIA and MICA serve to facilitate communication, leadership, and educational opportunities among commercial and industrial insulation and abatement contractors within their respective regions, as well as manufacturers, distributors, and material supply firms from across the country and beyond. Both are regional affiliates of the National Insulation Association and offer various educational and networking opportunities throughout the year. CSIA serves 48 union contractors in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and West Virginia.

Established in 1956, MICA is the proud creator of the National Commercial and Industrial Insulation Standards Manual. Its 70 contractor members are located throughout 12 Midwestern states, including North Dakota, Arkansas, Nebraska and Illinois.

Largest Insulation Project in the US

January 24th, 2011 by mknoll

Fit Tight Covers is proud to be the supplier of removable insulation covers for Duke Energy’s new power plant in Edwardsport, Indiana. This project is one of the largest construction projects in the United States at this time. Such a large project is a great opportunity for Fit Tight Covers to prove that we have the resources and experience to meet high demand for all types of custom insulation covers.
Since April of last year, we have fabricated and installed about 750 Fit Tight Covers for Duke. Over the next 86 weeks, we expect to fabricate and install about 9500 more covers for the Duke IGCC project. The project requires every type of cover manufactured for a variety of temperatures and environments. We appreciate that Duke chose a Hoosier-owned, -managed and -staffed company to provide its covers for this huge Indiana project.

A removable, reusable Fit Tight Cover allows easy access to equipment while providing the benefits of insulation – energy savings, workplace safety, and more.

Fit Tight Cover Benefits:

1.  Manufacture your custom insulation cover one time – remove and reuse over and over again. Unlike traditional  insulation, removable insulation covers are designed for easy access to your equipment, without the wasted time and money of installing new insulation.

2.  Insulate everything, and save money. A Fit Tight Cover can be designed to solve the energy needs of all types of equipment, including equipment located in tight areas, environments with moisture issues, equipment with irregular surfaces, and even for equipment that requires frequent maintenance.

3.  Keep your employees safe. Workplace safety should never be compromised, even for equipment that needs to be accessed often and quickly.  A Fit Tight Cover reduces safety risks while allowing work to continue without interruption.

4.  Fit Tight, Fits Right. Your custom cover will be designed to fit your equipment precisely, with the most appropriate and effective materials for the environment.

Our covers can be used in many types of commercial and industrial applications, including:

  • Exchangers
  • Flanges
  • Flow Meters
  • Level Gauges
