Fire Protected Oil Tanks

Tuffa UK Limited, is dedicated to providing our customers with a vast range of fire protected storage tanks. Following much investment and continual Research & Development, we are extremely proud of our certifications in fire protected storage tanks.

Our fire protected tanks are much easier for installers, as the assessment has approved the product to comply with building regulations. When a tank replacement is undertaken and the new installation requires fire protection measures, by fitting the Firestop bunded tank it allows the tank to remain in the same position. This means a tank relocation is not required to a position potentially unacceptable, and the physical restraints encountered by the installing engineer are relaxed. This is more often than not, more acceptable to the customer too.

Tuffa Firestop, the oil storage tank with fitted fire barrier has received national LABC (Local Authority Building Control) system approval on its Fire Protected tanks for both domestic and non domestic applications.

An estimated 60% of tanks installed are non compliant with building regulations, so our fire protected storage tanks are the ideal solution.

The Tuffa FireStop is designed with a 'fire barrier' to protect oil tanks where fire protection is necessary. The fire barrier is constructed from high quality fire retardant material, with the following achievements:

Independently tested to BS476: Part 22: 1987
Independently tested to BS476 (Warrington Fire Research Centre)
Meets Section J 5.4 of Building Regulations, Table 5.1 for Fire Protection for Oil Storage Tanks
LABC (Local Authority Building Control) system approval

Tuffa fire protected tanks can be specified to obtain a satisfactory degree of safety in the advent of a spreading fire as required by Building Regulations. At Tuffa UK, we achieve this requirement by protecting the fuel contents using the appropriate methodology as described in BS5410; Tuffa UK does not achieve this by just a single means, but via the double approach of providing an actual physical fire barrier and, by the complete enclosure of our tank in a non-combustible fire resistance construction.

The FireStop is also the only system on the market that fits integrally onto our plastic tanks and it can also be factory fitted to a steel tank. It uses a simple method that requires no brickwork, barriers or firewalls to be erected on site making sure there are no delays in installing the tank or added site costs.
