Fiberglass Fire Protection Tanks

Fiberglass fire protection tanks provide a corrosion free, water tight, long lasting solution for your water storage needs. Burying a fiberglass fire protection tank eliminates vandalism and freezing concerns. And with a H20 (traffic bearing) structural tank design, you can utilize the tank anywhere.

Fiberglass Fire Protection Tank Design

Fextex helps with cost analysis & design outlay providing

budget quotes and delivering design tools such as; custom

drawings, dipstick calibration charts, buoyancy calculations,

pump hydraulics, installation manuals & control panel

configuration.

Fextex continuously is finding ways to save our customers money.

Fire protection designs often allow the fire protection tank to serve

as a dual purpose tank. Purposing your fire protection tank as a

rainwater collection, potable water, fountain or stormwater

collection tank adds value and savings to your specific project.



Fiberglass Fire Protection Tank Considerations

A couple of things you may want to consider when equiping your underground fiberglass fire protection tank:

 

  • All fittings on the inside of the tank must be made of non corrosive material, such as fiberglass or stainless steel.

  • If your area experiences seasonal freezes, then the top of the tank must be buried below the frost line.

  • Tank gallonage is measured in total tank volume. If your outlet is not on the top of the tank, you can use our dipstick calibration chart to get a liquid volume. (use invert of outlet elevation.)

  • If you  are using a vertical turbine pump inside a fiberglass tank, then take the pump suction elevation into consideration. A bottom sump can be added to our tanks for full tank utilization.

  • If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact us, or visit our document library.
