Chemical Storage Tanks in Autumn

As we head towards autumn, the mornings become a little crisper; the days tend to draw shorter, and there is a rather distinct chill in the air. As we all head indoors and get wrapped up, we often forget about the things that we rely on that are based outside – and this applies to both businesses and domestic customers.

Forget out of sight, out of mind; stay one step ahead of the weather and opportunists to ensure your chemical storage tanks are safe and secure throughout the colder months of the year.

If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to stock up on De-icer and Adblue, as well as fuel. It goes without saying that you’ll want to protect your assets and ensure you have ample space for essential chemicals over the autumn and winter period, too.

Protect Your Investment

The cost of these chemicals is a necessary expense for many businesses, but that also means that their storage areas are potential targets for thieves. During the coming months, this is especially true as we retire to the comfort and warmth of our offices and homes, drawing the blinds behind us as we go, in an attempt to keep out the cold.

Often, chemical storage tanks are kept hidden away around the back of buildings and away from the general public. While this is ideal for health and safety standards, it is less than ideal when it comes to keeping an eye on your investments. Consider CCTV coverage in this area or securing with locked fences and gates.

Chemical Storage Tanks on Lockdown

If you store a significant amount of chemicals and liquids on-site, the consideration of CCTV cameras and lockable fencing and gates is one that should not be ignored. These additional levels of security could be just what you need to stop a thief targeting your business.

Many tanks that are manufactured here at Tuffa Tanks are bunded for another layer of protection– this time against wear, tear and accidental spillages. This not only protects your investment, but the surrounding environment, too.

Bunded chemical tanks can hold up to 110% of their content capacity, which ensures that any spillages are contained safely and securely.
