In April 1997, Giant
Factories Inc. took a giant technological leap forward to help
preserve our precious environment when we became the world’s
first major water heater manufacturer to insulate its water
heaters with eco-friendly foam insulation.
Up until then, we had been
using fiberglass exclusively to insulate our water heaters.
While we continue to insulate some of our water heaters with
fiberglass as it is also eco-friendly, it does have its
limitations when used as an insulating material.
After searching all over the
world, we found a way around these limitations. This foam insulation has great insulating qualities and
is environmentally safe (contains no HCFC's, CFC’s, nor VOC's) .
Giant has always been and
will continue to be a responsible corporate citizen. The
introduction of foam insulation is another example of Giant Factories on-going commitment to
bring to the water heater market products that are
environmentally safe as well as giving excellent quality, best
value, and top energy efficiency.
