The Fire Protection Water Tanks are manufactured by applying the latest techniques in structural engineering design and analysis. This means that when you invest in a fire protection system you can be sure that our tanks are designed according to the latest recognised code of practice so that it will be effective in any fire situation.
Our Fire Tanks are perfect for fire protection in the industrial, commercial and agricultural industry. Installation of your Fire Tank is carried out by one of our trusted fire tank installers in South Africa and abroad. Protect your assets with a Fire Tank.
The Fire Tank is available in capacities ranging from 15 m3 to more than 2 762 m3 and with a diameter ranging from 2,35 m to 19,66 m. Consequently, we offer a product for a wide range of specifications and requirements. Zincalume steel bolted tanks are suited for tough environments where dependability is vital. They can withstand extreme environments in any urban, rural, or remote location. The modular design principle of the tank kits offers ease of transport and assembly on site.
We uses a durable PVC (polyvinyl chloride) liner with woven base fabric polyester yarn 1100/1440 d/tex that will outlast any fire. These non-tear liners are manufactured as a heat-welded homogenous unit with welded seams of 50 mm wide. The liners is checked thoroughly for pinholes, damages and proper weld seams before shipping.

The Fire Tank wall is constructed from 1,0 mm to 6,0 mm zincalume steel panels, a metal that will last seven times longer than galvanised steel, with a life expectancy of more than 20 years. The zinc in the coating protects the exposed steel against heat and wear & tear. Panels can also be colour coated as an optional to blend in with existing buildings. By adding cathodic protection that will corrode at a far lower rate than galvanized steel, corrosion of the zincalume panels is slowed down or even stopped.
The Fire Tank roof is constructed using .55mm full hard zincalume corrugated sheeting. The roof is traffic-able across roof trusses, complete with a heavy-duty lockable access hatch. Furthermore, it is light and weatherproof, and designed to withstand wind speeds of up to 100 km/h. The Dome Roof can be fitted with a ventilator to prevent condensation on the inside and an internal or external ladder for easy access ins and out of the tank. The roof can be sealed with a felt seal to make it bird, rodent and dust proof.
The Fire Tank foundations can vary depending on the size, the application and the design requirements of the tank. A reinforced concrete ring beam is required to anchor the tank, especially for larger tanks and for installations in extreme windy conditions. We can give you a detailed drawing and site instruction if you would like to construct the ring beam yourself.
The bolted nature of the tanks makes building very quick when compared to welded steel tanks or concrete structures. It also allows the existing tanks to be unbolted and moved on to new locations when needed, significantly increasing asset value. Engineered designs will accommodate secure tank storage for local environmental conditions, such as high wind speeds, snow or seismic loads. The bolted tank and silo system allows for structural designs to be used in various configurations, including water storage reservoirs, water standpipes and elevated water distribution tanks.
We guarantee that the Fire Tank will not leak for 20 years, with a pro-rata warranty available on request.
