Fire rated fuel tanks that meet Australian and international standards

In Australia, the storage and handling of flammable and combustible liquids (AS 1940:2017) defines minimum separation distances between fuel storage areas with buildings or public areas.

The standard specifies requirements for the design, construction and operation of installations where flammable or combustible liquids are stored and handled. If you’re storing flammable liquids you must ensure that the location, method of construction and means of ventilation of the storage facility complies with this standard, and that you are using appropriate storage tanks.

Thermal insulated fire rated tanks are designed to strict safety standards that keep the contents safe in the case of a building fire or liquid fire from spilled fuel. For example a 2 hour fire rating means if the tank is engulfed in a fire the contents will be protected for at least two hours.

Our range of fire rated tanks are designed to meet Australian and international standards and ensure your business meets all safety requirements.

Our lightweight, fully insulated double walled tank systems not only reduce transportation, installation and relocation costs but exceed the international safety standards for the UL 2-hour fire test. They are compatible with diesel fuel, flammable liquids, lubricants and kerosene and designed to comply with AS1692, AS1940, UL142 and UL2085.

Our Shield Fireguard tanks are also available with ballistics and impact protection.

Protection for your fuel and the environment

Because fire-rated fuel tanks are built with lightweight thermal insulation material on all sides, they keep product safe from ambient temperature variations, extending the life of the product and reducing emissions to the environment.

They are compatible with a wide range of products including biodiesel and ethanol.
