Insulators read blueprints and specifications to determine job requirements and select, install and secure a variety of insulation materials (calcium silicate, glass foam, mineral wool, Styrofoam, fiberglass) based on the size, surface characteristics and location of pipes, ductwork and other mechanical systems. Insulators possess the agility to work in confined spaces and are comfortable working at heights in both indoor and outdoor environments under potentially uncomfortable and hazardous conditions including the disposal of asbestos insulation. Insulators have an aptitude for precision work, demonstrate a high degree of manual dexterity and enjoy working with minimal supervision.
