The Tuffa FireStop tank is the modern day method of tank Fire Protection to comply with Building Regulations.
The FireStop range of tanks are fitted with an integral fire resistant material which either 30 or 60 minute resistance making them suitable for both domestic and non domestic applications, and is an LABC Registered System which can be installed next to or within non-fire resistant buildings and boundaries.
To meet the requirements of Part J of the Building Regulations in England and Wales, conventional oil storage tanks should be sited at least 1800mm away from non-fire rated buildings or structures, and 760mm away from non-fire rated boundaries such as wooden fences. The requlations state that if these requirements can not be met, then a fire rated barrier with at least 30 minutes protection should be provided. The Tuffa FireStop meets these requirements and can therefore be sited next to buildings, sheds and boundaries with just 100mm separation distance recommended for inspection purposes.
All equipment is housed in a fully lockable flip lid on the 1350 – 2500 plastic models, and a larger security cabinet on all larger models. Tuffa also offer a range of steel fire protected storage tanks up to 200,000 litres.
