Fireguard Tanks

Fireguard®  is THE tank to use for performance, durability, and reliability. The lightweight Fireguard tank is performance engineered for safety and long service life. It is UL 2085 listed and has easily passed all tests for 110% secondary containment, ballistics, and vehicle impact resistance. This incredibly safe tank meets every national code for fire protected ASTs.

The Fireguard tank is precision engineered for superior structural strength, weather and corrosion resistance, and full compatibility with all major fuels and additives including MTBE and ethanol. our tanks’ double walls is a concrete layer that is 75% lighter than traditional concrete. This concrete core offers the fire protection of concrete without the weight, cracking, and spalling issues that are normally associated with concrete vaults.

In addition to meeting the quality standards of the Steel Tank Institute – the strictest in the industry – Envirosafe™ makes sure that our Fireguard tanks meet each and every one of our customers’ requirement.

Fireguard Fuel Tanks: The Advantages of Double Wall Steel

Steel offers safety, ease of use, and reliability that you just cannot get from concrete vaulted tanks. With the Fireguard’s double walled, triple layer protection, concrete cannot compete.

All-steel construction offers the best value in reliability, quality, and performance; and Envirosafe™ Above-Ground Fuel Systems are the best in the industry. The Fireguard tank offers all the reliability of all steel construction with the added safety of concrete thermal insulation without all of the drawbacks. When you consider that our tanks arrive fully assembled and ready to go, there is really no question that the Envirosafe™ Above-Ground Fuel System is the name to trust with any and all fuel storage needs.

Fireguard Tanks: Lightweight Secondary Containment

Fireguard® tanks utilize a lightweight insulation which significantly reduces the overall weight of the tank, allowing Fireguard® Tanks to be easily transported and even relocated if necessary. Also, the double wall steel design meets UL-listed 110% secondary containment requirements. The epoxy-coated steel wall is durable and requires little maintenance. It won’t crack, spall or weather, making it a preferred choice over heavier, higher maintenance concrete encased tanks.

Fireguard Tanks: Ease of Installation

Each Fireguard® Tank system we sell comes as a contained unit. Usually, installation requires nothing more than pouring a concrete slab and hooking up electrical power. Besides making installation a snap, it also has the added benefit of allowing the tank to be relocated. And because the Fireguard® tank is portable, they can be financed by numerous lending sources.

Fireguard Tanks: A 30 Year Warranty

Durability and reliability are crucial to any above ground fuel tank, and each Fireguard® Tank we sell comes with a standard 30 year warranty backed by the Steel Tank Institute.

Fireguard Tanks Maintenance

The tank operator should preform periodic walk-around inspections to identify and repair areas of damage to the vessel or the coating itself and check for proper drainage around the tank area. It is imperative that the tank exterior be inspected periodically to ensure that the integrity of the coating is maintained. The frequency of periodic repainting will be based upon environmental factors in the geographic area where the tank is located. Special consideration should be given to the selected of the paint, surface preparation and coating application. The coating selected should be suitable for use with the current coating, or the existing coating should ne removed. The coating selected should be of industrial quality Proper site preparation and maintenance are vital to ensure drainage of surface water. Should ground conditions change or settlement occur, take the appropriate steps to maintain proper drainage and prevent standing water near or under the tank area. For diked tanks, remove any product spills immediately. Be sure to dispose of hazardous material properly. For diked tanks fitted with a drain, drain off water only. Drain openings are required to be maintained liquid tight. The primary tank shall be inspected monthly for the presence of water at the lowest possible points inside the primary tank. Remove any water found. Water and sediment in fuel can cause plugging of filters. Also, bacterial growth, originating form the fuel can cause corrosion of tanks and lines. For procedures on how to check for the presence of water and removal of water, refer to the STI R111, Storage Tank Maintenance/For copies of the RP and more information, please go to www.steeltank.com. Failure to adhere with these maintenance instructions may void your warranty.

Tank relocation requirements – often aboveground storage tanks are relocated. The following instructions are to be followed when this occurs: All steps are to be documented and the documentation is to be kept for the life of the tank. The hazards associated with the cleaning, entry, inspection, testing, maintenance or other aspects of AST’s are significant. Safety considerations and controls should be established prior to undertaking physical activities associated with ASTs . Cleaning of tanks must be per state and local jurisdiction requirements. Refer to the STI Standard SP001, “Standard for the Inspection of Aboveground Storage Tanks” for requirements concerning tank inspections. The SP001 Standard details requirements for inspections based on the tank installation and age. A tank must undergo the appropriate insurance prior to relocation. In addition, the tank must be subjected to a pressure (or vacuum) test.
