  • 5″ port for alarm probe c/w overfill alarm (battery-powered) to detect and warn of a tank overfill
  • 5″ port for a gauge c/w clock face contents gauge (housed under steel box for security) so you can easily monitor the amount of diesel inside the tank
  • Mounted on bearers (full width) to keep the tank off the ground and prevent a potential corrosion point
  • Manufactured in accordance with BS799 pt5
  • 10 year warranty (covers manufacturing defects only)
  • Small tin of “touch-up” paint is included for application should any scratches occur

Suitable for the safe storage of both derv (white diesel) or gas oil (red diesel), our extensive range of static steel bunded diesel tanks are used in agricultural, construction and industrial environments.

The bunded tank design provides you with peace of mind should the inner tank split. A bunded design offers enhanced protection for the oil and surrounding area as the inner tank holds the oil, while the outer bund provides secondary containment in the unlikely event of the inner tank failing.

The outer bund retains the contents by carrying a minimum 110% of the primary tank’s capacity to safeguard the immediate vicinity from costly diesel spillages. The effects of oil spills can have wide ranging impacts including harming human health and causing serious environmental damage to waterways, soils, plants and wildlife.

The tank is mounted on full width bearers to keep the tank from the ground where it could potentially create a corrosion point, therefore allowing for ventilation and ensuring the base is kept dry.

The lockable cabinet affords easy access to the tank and provides an additional security element alongside the strong steel material used in the tank’s construction. A well-designed steel tank is extremely hard to break into and reduces the risk of your fuel being stolen.

All sizes in our range come complete with a clock face contents gauge to monitor the level of your tank’s contents and an overfill alarm that alerts you if the tank has been, or is in danger of being filled beyond its capacity.

Please Note: All images that feature a pump are for illustration purposes only and are NOT included with this product. All static steel bunded diesel tanks are supplied with a 10-year warranty to cover manufacturing defects only.

Installation - OFTEC Requirements

Who are OFTEC?

OFTEC establishes the standards for competence within the domestic oil heating and cooking industry. By ensuring the quality of people and businesses working in this area, OFTEC maintains standards for reputable companies and consumers alike.

What is an OFTEC approved installer/engineer?

They are a trained and approved competent person who is approved by OFTEC to install and service domestic and commercial oil tanks. Your oil tank must be installed by an OFTEC engineer and to maintain the 10 year warranty the tank must be inspected every year.

Tank location - OFTEC guidelines

Oil tanks are required to comply with fire separation distances in order to adequately protect the stored fuel from a fire or heat source, that may originate nearby. Tanks should be sited:

  • 1.8m away from non-fire rated eaves of a building
  • 1.8m away from a non-fire rated building or structure (e.g. garden sheds)
  • 1.8m away from openings (such as doors or windows) in a fire rated building or structure (e.g. brick built house/garage)
  • 1.8m away from oil fired appliance flue terminals
  • 760mm away from a non-fire rated boundary such as a wooden boundary fence
  • 600mm away from screening (e.g. trellis and foliage) that does not form part of the boundary

If it is impossible to comply with these requirements, then a fire protection barrier with at least 30 minutes fire rating should be installed, please call us for more details. A minimum separation distance of 100mm is required between the tank and fire-rated barrier.

Tank base and support - OFTEC guidelines

The need to provide a suitable base and support for your oil tank is of paramount importance for reasons of both safety and environmental protection. The base should be:
 

  • Adequate for the weight of the tank
  • Non-combustible, imperforate and level
  • Constructed of concrete, paving stones or stonework
  • Large enough to extend 300mm beyond all sides of the tank

If an oil storage tank is not adequately supported, the tank itself can be weakened leading to the eventual failure and escape of the stored fuel. During the life of an installation, an oil storage tank base will need to provide continual structural support, even though ground conditions may alter from season to season and year to year.

To comply with British Standards, the base material should be one of the following laid on a hardcore base to give an imperforate base:
 

  • Concrete at least 100mm thick
  • Paving stones at least 50mm thick
  • Stonework at least 50mm thick

The overall size of the base should be larger than the oil storage tank and any integral oil storage tank bund, so that when the oil storage tank is installed, the base has a clear projection of a minimum of 300mm around all sides of the oil storage tank.
