Cline Cellars now has insulated wine tanks and a solar-powered roof. That’s vintage Barrier.
Roof/Solar System & Wine Tank Insulation
Cline Cellars is located in one of the windiest regions of California and needed its roof and wine tanks insulated, the roof replaced and a solar energy system installed. To apply coatings in the wind, Barrier innovated a stand-alone “spray booth” on site in which 3 wine tanks at a time could be insulated while shielded from the wind. In addition to insulating the wine tanks, Barrier needed to waterproof and insulate the roof, a task complicated by the 300 mounting brackets required for the solar energy system. Barrier teamed up with SolarCraft on this installation.
- Tank — 4” polyfoam
- 45 mils polyurea basecoat
- 22 mils urethane top coat
Barrier applied 4” of polyurethane foam insulation to each wine tank with no impact from the wind, installed and sealed hundreds of mounting brackets and applied insulation to the facility’s roof as well. Finally, the photovoltaic solar energy panels were installed on the roof for maximum efficiency.
