Fire-fighting steel water tanks, which are also used as potable drinking water tanks are aesthetically pleasing and efficient water tanks that are made from hydraulically pressed panels. In most countries, whether commercial or residential, every building is required to have a steel sectional water tank for fire-fighting reasons. These sectional fire water tanks come with steel storage tanks for hoses and sprinkler systems too, for convenience.
One of the many reasons why these are used as fire-fighting tanks is because the panels are modular and can be customized to fit any type of space in the buildings. According to the weather and other external factors, these sectional fire water tanks also come in various types such as coated, stainless steel, and HDPE lined.
As the stainless steel panels are non-reactive, the water or any other liquid stored in these tanks does not get contaminated with other materials. In any case, they get contaminated, it’s easy to clean them and spot any residues settled at the bottom of the tank.
The tanks can be customized with the following add-ons:
Screened air vent to prevent external elements or insects from entering the tank
Sight glass and more
