Single skinned tanks

The modern tanks we supply are strong and durable plastic tanks, available in a wide range of shapes and sizes to fit your chosen location and requirements. Gone are the days of rusty metal oil storage tanks and their subsequent leaking issues as they age.

In some cases in a domestic situation you only require a single skinned tank, however the majority of properties are now being fitted with newer bunded tanks. 

Bunded tanks

A bunded oil tank is effectively a double skinned oil tank, imagine this is a tank within a tank. The purpose of a bunded tank is to provide an extra level of security from the danger of oil loss by creating a second skin for extra durability and long-term protection.

It is generally used to protect the local environment, or where the tank is in a more exposed location, such as an area when it could get knocked by a vehicle. You will generally need a bunded tank if you meet any of the following criteria:
  • If oil spillage could flow into an open drain
  • If there is a risk of collision near a road or a driveway
  • If the tank is within 10 metres of a stream of a river
  • If the tank is within 50 metres of a well borehole or a spring
Our fully trained technicians will help you asses what tank is the best and most cost effective solution for you.
