Above Ground Water Tanks
Fire Protection Tanks
Our fire protection above ground water tanks are an integral part of fire protection systems for residential, commercial, and institutional facilities. In emergency firefighting situations, the demand for water can exceed the supply available from domestic water lines. This is especially true for suburban or rural areas with well water and limited water delivery.
Use of an aboveground water storage tank can greatly improve emergency support efforts, and may even be required by local fire code as a secondary on-site water supply for automatic fire sprinkler systems. As an added benefit, implementation of water storage firefighting tank may provide additional discounts on insurance costs for your facility.
Firefighting Tank Design and Application
Fire protection tanks are durable, cost effective, and atmospheric (non-pressurized) water storage tanks. For areas under construction, or without existing municipal water infrastructure, our fire protection tanks help commercial developments meet local fire marshal code requirements by providing a water storage facility.
Our above ground water tanks are designed, constructed, and installed according to "Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection" National Fire Protection Association NFPA Standard No. 22.
