GRP Water Storage Tanks
One piece water tanks are the preferred type of cold water storage unit in the absence of constraints which would make them unfeasible. One piece Grp water tanks are simpler to manufacture and install than sectional tanks, and the absence of joints and seams means there are no weak points which need reinforcing, or areas which are difficult to clean thoroughly.
In the production of water storage tanks Uk manufacturers must observe the specifications laid down in BS EN 13280 : 2001. This is the standard for all Grp one piece cold water storage tanks as well as other similar types, and all our tanks are made to meet these specifications.
These Grp cold water storage tanks from Precolor are lightweight, and easy to transport and handle. Pre-formed cutouts to accommodate tank connections and fittings are provided, and the GRP material we use can be easily cut and drilled using standard plumber’s tools.
This means that even large water storage tanks can quickly and easily be positioned and installed in new buildings under construction, or in old buildings in cases where access is not limited. We can also manufacture bespoke tanks to specific shapes and dimensions – contact us to learn more.
Keeping the temperature of stored water below 20°c is crucial to restricting microbiological growth. For outdoor storage, pre-insulated water tanks protect the water supply from extremes of temperature.
Various thicknesses of expanded polyurethane foam insulation are available, covering both the body and lid of the tank.
Precolor's GRP One Piece Cold Water Storage Tanks have been specifically designed to meet the stringent requirements of BS EN 13280 : 2001.
They are fully tested and approved for current water regulations, these water tanks have been specified throughout the UK by County and District Councils, Consulting Engineers and Architects.
They are light in weight, easily handled and resistant to corrosion and attack from bacteria which may normally be expected in cold water systems.
GRP is easily cut and drilled with ordinary plumbers tools. We can also manufacture standard specialist tanks for storing a wide range of chemicals.
Our Water Tanks can be manufactured in our standard grey colour or to a specfic RAL colour as per the customers requirements, popular options are British Racing Green and Blue.
Pre-Insulated GRP One Piece Water Tanks
Pre-insulated Water tanks protect contents from extremes of heat and cold, thereby reducing excessive tempurature fluctuations which increase the risk of bacteria growth.
To restrict microbiological growth the temperature in the water tank should be kept as low as possible and below 20 °C.
Insulation is available in either 25mm, 50mm, 75mm or 100mm expanded CFC free polyurethane foam encapsulated in both the lid and tank sides. Water Tanks supported on a flat base do not normally require insulation underneath.
Standard positioned pre-formed cutouts to accomodate tank connections and fittings are provided on all special and standard tanks. If required, we can position the cutouts to the customers specification.
These insulated water tanks can be situated inside or externally without the need for additional enclosures.
Precolor''s standard Rigid One Piece water tanks can be supplied in Metric and Imperial sizes from 10 - 11,250 Gallons or 45 - 90,000 Litres.
Special sizes and shapes including irregular shapes such as ''L'' shaped or tapered tanks and cisterns can also be manufactured to customers own requirements and specification.
Precolor''s one piece water tanks are easily transportable to anywhere in mainland UK.
