Tuffa’s fire protected oil tanks serve as an alternative means of compliance when compared to traditional fire barriers and have been awarded LABC Assured Status. It is the responsibility of the Competent Person installing the tank, or the building inspector certifying the installation, to ensure a site-specific risk assessment has been conducted. 30 minute fire protection Enables the installation of an oil tank a minimum of 300mm from other buildings and structures. Where access is required (e.g. at the front of the tank to fill it) then a minimum distance of 600mm is required. 60 minute fire protection Enables the installation of an oil tank within a garage or other internal space where it is impractical to install the tank externally to the building. The tank must be installed in an uninhabitable area (e.g. a garage or outbuilding), at the lowest possible level in the building or structure. Additionally, the tank must be installed a minimum of 300mm from other internal walls and structures or 600mm where access is required.
The 1800 Litre Steel Bunded Fire Protected Oil Tank delivers either 30 or 60 minute fire protection preventing the fuel within the tank from igniting during that time even when engulfed in flames. The integrally fitted fire rated material enables installation of the tank adjacent to – or even inside – buildings or structures.
This oil tank safely holds up to 1800 litres (395 gallons) of heating oil. The tank is fully compliant with building regulations throughout the UK, so it’s an ideal tank to replace any old non-compliant tanks.
