One Peice GRP Tank
All tanks must be fully supported over the whole base area, with a support system designed to accept the tank and lid together with the weight of contents and pipe work. Please note: clients are responsible for base support. Marine ply bases can be supplied bonded into the laminate of a tank or as a separate loose item, cut to specific requirements.
Our tanks are of rigid construction and care must be
taken that the overall size will pass through all obstructions and fit into the space chosen for the installation. Please check before ordering.
When access restrictions prevent a one piece tank being
used, any standard tank can be supplied divided into
horizontal sections. Alternative solutions can also be
All tanks holding wholesome water must be fitted with a
screened vent and screened warning/overflow pipe. Tanks holding over 1000 litres actual capacity will require a separate warning and overflow pipe, sized according to the incoming mains supply.
Our was the first tank manufacturer to offer preinsulation, a system incorporating polyurethane foam
encapsulated within the laminate, thereby preventing
moisture being absorbed into the insulation and
consequent reduction in insulation value.
Normal practice is to pre-insulate the sides and lid whilst
making provision for fittings. This prevents the need to
penetrate the outer skin on-site. (Please note that, if
possible, the size and location of fittings required should be stated when ordering tanks). The base of our tanks can also be pre-insulated. Insulation is zero ozone depletion polyurethane.
25mm thick insulation = ‘U’ value of 0.83 w/m2
50mm thick insulation = ‘U’ value of 0.45 w/m2
100mm thick insulation = ‘U’ value of 0.23 w/m2
Alternative Insulation Options
We offer foil faced foam or 60mm thick glass insulation
material encapsulated within a plastic sleeve (jacket).
