Why Choose a Bunded Fuel Tank? 5 Must-Know Benefits…

If you need to store fuels, chemicals and other liquids for domestic or commercial use, you’ll understand how important safety is. Traditional fuel tanks are built with a single skin design, which is fine for containing fuels but creates risks from spillages and other problems. Bunded fuel tanks create a safety margin with a second outer tank shell, carefully containing the liquids in the core tank while allowing space to contain spills and leaks.

We’ve got a fantastic range of tanks to choose from. Here’s why you should look into a bunded fuel tank today:

1. Prevent Fuel Theft

If you’re storing chemicals, fuels of fertilisers then you need to have your wits about you! In today’s day and age these materials are highly sought after by thieves, therefore it’s imperative you store your expensive fuel in a high quality, specially designed bunded fuel tank, for added security. Otherwise you could be taken to the cleaners, in more ways than one!

A bunded tank delivers dual protection against theft or tampering, with a second skin that keeps your liquids contained safely. This extra protection is not only a deterrent, but it makes sabotage or stealing much more difficult and slows down any would-be offenders, increasing the odds that your security team or the authorities will catch them.

2. Safety for you, your team and the environment

Liquid fuels are often caustic and toxic, so leaks and spills can be extremely hazardous. The second tank contains any spilled materials that could otherwise be a risk to you and your employees, and ensures that they can’t come into contact with the environment and cause any damage.

3. Full compliance with the latest storage regulations
