GRP Products | Chemical Storage Tanks
specialists in manufacturing GRP (Fibreglass) water and
chemical storage tanks.
Precolor water and chemical storage tanks can be
supplied as one piece tanks, two piece tanks (semi
sectional) or full sectional tanks. Bespoke sized water
storage tanks and chemical storage tanks can also be
manufactured to special requirements.
Tanks are free standing and only require a flat fully
supporting base either internal or external. They are
supplied with a standard bolted lid to suit as part of
the main structure but can also be made open top with
extra reinforcement or support straps across the tank.
They are suitable for holding water – hot or cold,
potable or not and for a variety of chemicals such as
glycol for chiller tanks. They can be utilised for
various operations, from feeding hotels to being
installed as fire sprinkler tanks.
We have over 30 years trading experience making our
tanks some of the highest quality on the market. All of
our GRP water storage tanks are built to last and are
fully WRAS approved. The maintenance of quality is of
major importance to us and all our internal systems are
fully compliant with BS EN ISO 9001 : 2008.
Delivery available throughout the UK.
GRP One Piece Storage Tanks
Precolor's GRP One Piece Tanks have
been specifically designed to meet the stringent requirements of BS EN 13280 :
2001, they are also fully WRAS Approved. 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. Tanks can be manufactured in our standard grey colour
or to a specific RAL colour as per the customers requirements, popular options
are British Racing Green and Blue
Pre-insulated tanks protect contents from extremes of heat and cold, thereby
reducing excessive temperature fluctuations which increase the risk of bacteria
growth. To restrict microbiological growth the temperatures in the tank should
be kept as low as possible and below 20 °C. Insulation is available in either
25mm, 50mm, 75mm or 100mm expanded HCFC and CFC free polyurethane foam
encapsulated in both the lid and tank sides. Tanks supported on a flat base do
not normally require insulation underneath. Standard positioned pre-formed
cutouts to accommodate tank connections and fittings are provided on all special
and standard tanks. If required, we can position the cutouts to the customers
Precolor's standard Rigid One Piece 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.
These tanks make a cost effective alternative to traditional sectional tanks
where there are no access restrictions.
are for use where access is restricted or if replacement
of a defective tank involves extensive structural
alteration to the building. These tanks are manufactured
in panels and then bolted and sealed at site by our
qualified technicians. We can install throughout the UK
and all of our installers are CSCS card holders.
Panels are 1m x 1m as standard, although different sizes
can be manufactured should access be particularly tight.
Access of 500mm is usually required around the tank to
install. These tanks are ideal for tanks that need a
larger capacity but do not have the access to get a one
piece or semi sectional tank through.
Often, one piece or semi sectional tanks can be installed instead of the more
costly sectional tanks. We would always advise our
customers to consider these options before deciding on
installing a sectional tank.
We offer three different types of sectional tanks
depending on site conditions and access restrictions.
Externally Flanged Base (E.F.B)
Externally Flanged Base tanks are designed for
installation on dwarf walls or steel beams.
Internally Flanged Base (I.F.B)
Internally Flanged Base tanks are designed to be
installed on fully flat supporting bases.
Totally Internally Flanged (T.I.F)
Totally Internally Flanged tanks are designed with all
flanges on the inside of the tank, which allow maximum
size and installation in areas with extremely restricted
assembly space around the tank.
All of our
one piece, semi sectional and sectional tanks are
manufactured to BS EN 13280: 2001 and fully approved by
the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS)
Sectional Storage Tanks
Tanks basically have the same specification as a one
piece tank except they have a single horizontal joint
which splits the height of the tank, separating it into
two halves. This then allows the tank to be passed
through a doorway or similar access restrictions
allowing them to be easily assembled on the other side.
Two piece semi-sectional tanks can be used as an
alternative to the conventional sectional types of
tanks, saving expensive installation and future
These two piece tanks can easily be erected by the
customer and are supplied complete with nuts, bolts,
washers and sealer.
