Kingspan has continually manufactured quality, long-lasting steel water tanks and accessories since its establishment in 1934. Our manufacturing sites are located in 3 states, and we supply clients in Victoria, Queensland, NSW and South Australia.
With so many options on the market it can be difficult to know which product is best suited to your needs. Steel and polyethylene are the most common material used to manufacture water tanks, followed by fibreglass, concrete and PVC bladder tanks.
While each material has its strengths and weaknesses, we believe the modern steel tank has the best features of all tanks currently available.
STRENGTH OF STEEL
Steel tanks do not bulge or stretch when full. The strength of steel means the tanks comfortably hold the large forces generated by tonnes of water. Kingspan has engineer certification on our entire range of water tanks. What’s more, unlike many other materials, the strength of steel will not deteriorate under the harsh Australian sun.
Modern steel tank has a long-life polymer coating inside and out, so the water never touches the steel. This ensures you get the strength of steel, combined with longevity. In fact, all our tanks carry a 20 year warranty against corrosion.
STYLE AND ELEGANCE
The traditional steel tank not only looks iconic, but it is less bulky than other alternatives. This is especially noticeable in the slimline format where polyethylene tanks are typically much larger for the same capacity of water.
The steel used in Kingspan’s tanks is made here in Australia. Steel is a very long lasting material, especially when coated with zinc galvanising or BlueScope steel
In addition to this, our tanks are less carbon intensive to produce than both plastic and concrete alternatives. If at some point in the future your tank is no longer required, the material is completely recyclable, making our tanks the best environmental alternative.
Of course by choosing to install a rainwater tank to collect and reuse water, you are helping the environment, helping your community, and saving valuable resources.
With a water tank from Kingspan, you can rest assured that you and your customers have made a sound investment in quality, strength and style, backed for the long term.
