Whether used in above ground or underground water tank applications, fiberglass offers the full range of performance benefits a tank designer would look for: a strong structural design, yet lightweight, easy to install, corrosion-resistant and competitively priced with other options.As a material, fiber reinforced thermoset resin composites (fiberglass or GRP) have been used for decades in highly corrosive environments, not just for storage tanks but also piping and in handling equipment such as ducts and exhaust stacks.
As one measure of their structurally strong design, fiberglass underground tanks are designed for H-20 loading conditions, making them ideal for installation in parking lots and high-traffic locations.
• GRP Water tanks have a long history of use in applications where watertight design integrity is critical, including extensive use in the storage of motor fuels. Leak-free performance is essential when it comes to fire protection water storage.
• Installation steps and costs are minimized by the lightweight nature of fiberglass since expensive heavy-lifting equipment generally is not necessary. This also is an important consideration when tank installation sites are difficult to access.
• Large capacity tanks, up to 60,000 gal. sizes generally required in fire protection systems, are factory-manufactured products that provide superior quality control processes vs. fabricating a tank on site where it is subject to varying weather conditions and manufacturing controls.
• A fiberglass tank can be designed for dual-purpose use, with a common example being fire protection standby as well as potable water. A GRP water tank can be ordered with a National Sanitation Foundation listing for potable applications.
