We supply a huge range of GRP water tanks and they appear to be a cut above the typical industrial water storage tanks for certain applications. This blog will cover the benefits and strengths of the GRP construction methods.
What is GRP?
GRP stands for glass-reinforced plastic. This material is created by reinforcing the three-dimensionally meshed duroplastic with glass fibres. GRP combines the positive properties from steel and plastic. This manufacturing method has been used for decades to make high-performance products that are expected to have a long service life in tough environments and ensure high levels of safety at the same time. Unlike many other tanks, these tanks are a square/rectangle shape and are resistant from corrosion, proving their frame is strong and durable. GRP tanks can also be placed indoors or outdoors as they are UV protected.
Some of the benefits of GRP;
Despite the strong and durable material of the tanks, GRP also has lightweight characteristics making the tanks easy to handle. This is important as the tanks we supply are one piece, meaning the tanks are shipped and delivered as one whole product and not in sections that can then be connected together. This ensures the product is highly durable as a whole, with no weaker parts, seals or joins.
Another benefit of this range of tanks is that they are available fitted with a choice of 20mm or 40mm insulation. This optional insulation protects the contents from either extreme heat or cold, therefore reducing the excessive temperature fluctuations which increase the risk of bacteria growth.
The tanks are WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approved and comply with water regulations and British standards.
We supply one piece GRP water tanks ranging from 45 litres to 240,000 litres; all available with a range of optional extras such as an inspection hatches, float valves and more. The huge range offers endless opportunities and applications for the tanks.
