FRP Storage Tanks Are Good for Fire Fighting Services

Water storage space for fire mitigation systems is one specific application where fire engineers across the country are struggling to find reliable, dependable storage tanks to hold large volumes of water. Historically, fibreglass storage tanks have been used in the petroleum sector, including the safe storage of engine gas in retail, government and commercial refuelling facilities, as well as other petroleum projects. Developers of fire protection systems can be confident in their choice of fibreglass tanks based on years of use in storing hazardous and combustible liquids.

Vertical Storage Tanks


Why is it excellent?


1,Fibreglass underground storage tanks are structurally durable, making them ideal for installation in parking areas and high site traffic areas.


2,The lightweight nature of fibreglass reduces installation movements and price, as expensive lifting equipment is not usually required. This is also an important factor to consider when the tank installation site is difficult to access.


3,The lightweight nature of glass fibre reduces installation movements and price as expensive lifting equipment is not usually required. This is also an important factor to consider when the tank installation site is difficult to access.


4,Large capacity storage tanks, up to 60,000 gallons. The size usually required in fire safety systems is a product manufactured in production facilities, and they offer a quality assurance process compared to tanks manufactured on site under different climatic conditions and production controls.


5,FRP storage tanks have a long history of leak-proof integrity applications, including extensive use as storage space for engine gases. When it comes to storage space for water for fire fighting, leak-free efficiency is essential.


6,Corrosion resistant, as a material, fibre reinforced thermoset composites (glass fibre or FRP) have actually been used for many years in highly corrosive environments, not only for storage tanks but also for piping and handling installations such as air ducts and ventilation ducts.


7,Fibreglass containers can be made for dual use, a common example being standby firefighting and potable water. Fibreglass containers can be ordered from the National Sanitation Foundation's checklist for potable water applications.
