Fire protection is an important consideration for any liquid storage solution when it contains flammable materials, such as oil and other fuels. Having a fire protected oil tank can help prevent the liquid inside the storage tank from igniting. All our fire rated oil tanks are bunded and have been successfully installed throughout the UK since 2005.
