WHY CHOOSE US?
WE BUILD THE BEST

Technology plays an important role in our commitment to constant improvement. We continually strive to improve processes by keeping abreast of the most advanced resin systems and other technology.

Access to a range of polyester and vinylester resin systems means that while standard tanks are designed for potable water, a wide range of effluents, flocculants and reagents can also be accommodated.

We understand that needs and expectations are diverse, so an individual tank can be adapted to precise requirements.

Our manufacturing facility demonstrates state of the art equipment, ensuring our service and manufacturing practices are of the highest standards.

FIBREGLASS (FRP) A SUPERIOR MATERIAL

WATER STORAGE

Tanks West have specifically designed and manufactured a range of fibreglass water tanks for the purpose of long-term storage of safe drinking water. Our uniquely formulated potable water approved resin system offers smooth, taint free, light resistant security for the storage of your most precious resource H2O.

Water Storage tanks manufactured with FRP or as often referred to as fibreglass, can sometimes conjure thoughts of chemicals, fibres, and resins, leading to the opinion that the material is unsafe for the application …but contrary to belief, storing potable (drinking) water in a fibreglass tank delivers a clean, hygienic and taint free water supply.

Yes, FRP storage tanks are made with resins, but they are manufactured using resins that match the specific liquid material.

So, when storing drinking water, your tank is made with resin suited and approved for potable (drinking water) and is compliant with the Australian Standard AS4020 – The right material …for the right job.

LIQUID FERTILISER

We know that liquid fertiliser is a huge investment for farms, we manufacture our tanks using advanced resin technology and a dense matrix of glass fibre reinforcement to ensure superior laminate strength. At 25°C an FRP tank is 8 times stronger than a polyethylene tank. With the high specific gravity of liquid fertiliser at SG 1.33 and the new phosphorus-based fertilisers, all Tanks West liquid fertiliser tanks are built to handle liquids with an SG up to 1.5 ensuring a generous safety margin providing safe, effective long-term storage.

ADVANCED CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

When it comes to storing volatile liquids, Tanks West FRP storage tanks are a safe, secure and long-term solution. Tanks West uses superior technology and materials to build fibreglass storage tanks that specifically have strong chemical resistance through the terephthalic resin system employed in these tanks.
This advanced system ensures the tanks are equipped to handle a range of chemicals, fertilisers, insecticides and herbicides.

DURABLE & CORROSION RESISTANT

All Tanks West fibreglass tanks are created to withstand the extreme temperatures of Western Australia and to resist rust and chemical corrosion. The resin technology we use to produce the highest-grade laminate eliminates any form of corrosion occurring. The proven ability of fibreglass to retain strength and flexibility is enhanced by the UV-resistant external gelcoat.

HEAT RESISTANCE

Fibreglass tanks have a great heat resistance and can withstand low-grade grass and bushfires. Fire damage to a Tanks West tank following a low-grade fire is typically aesthetic rather than structural, involving blackening or blistering of the gelcoat.
Tanks West does not guarantee their tanks will survive every fire situation, but there is evidence due to their heat resistance they can stand a better chance compared to alternative materials.
