Most tanks require site-specific modifications and upgrades. Therefore, we offer the option to order a complete structural design calculation package (SDCP), stamped by a professional engineer licensed in your state. The SCDP ensures the tank is built to the location’s requirements and may be reviewed by building code enforcement agencies to ensure compliance to local ordinances and laws.
Catching H₂O ensures the products are built to our customers’ exacting standards. Water tanks are often more than an aesthetic feature or simple convenience – they serve a designated purpose and must demonstrate unquestionable reliability. For example:
CorGal Tanks can be engineered and designed to be fire protection water tanks that comply with local, state and national fire protection codes and standards such as:
- NFPA-22 (Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection)
- NFPA-1142 (Water Supplies for Suburban and Rural Fire Fighting)
When municipal water sources are insufficient to meet fire flow requirements, an alternate water supply is often required by the fire marshal. Fire protection tanks can be equipped to supply fire suppression equipment or to supplement tanker truck requirements with fire department connections. When a fire event is underway and a truck is draining over 1,000 gallons per minute from the tank, the fire service must be assured that the tank will not implode or otherwise fail. CorGal Tanks are backed by licensed engineers who have carefully calculated each tank’s requirements to ensure they will work in a crisis.
Fire protection tanks feature the following upgrades:
- Higher gauge sidewall
- Long-lasting anti-vortex fittings (not painted metal)
- Roof vents
- Premium water level indicators
- OSHA compliant ladders
Our tanks can be constructed on a tower or other elevated location if gravity flow or high visibility are desired. All towers are site engineered to ensure safety and longevity. These elevated tanks may be used as functional water storage tanks for various applications or as signage to help promote your business or serve as a landmark in a highly visible manner.
Let us help plan, design, and implement high-quality tanks as part of your project. We offer diverse solutions to meet your site plan requirements. With an extensive range of models available, we are confident we have a perfect product for you.
We specialize in designing and installing water tanks for rainwater harvesting (irrigation and potable water storage), fire protection, stormwater management, and many other applications depending on the project’s needs. We also adapt our tanks for special projects, such as signage or shelters. We prefer to work hand-in-hand with you to help find the best product for your site.
CorGal® Tanks with roofs can be built from 6 feet to 120 feet in diameter; tanks without roofs can be up to 200 feet in diameter. With heights ranging from 4 feet to 30 feet, a tank can hold anywhere from 700 gallons to more than 500,000 gallons of water.
Our tanks can be designed with pitched, flat, or inverted roofs, to fit your functional needs. Available roof options include:
- 30° Flat-Seam Roof Panels for 6 ft., 8 ft. and 9 ft. diameter tanks
- 10° High-Rib Roof Panels on 6 ft. to 72 ft. diameter tanks
- 30° High-Rib Roof Panels on 6 ft. to 120 ft. diameter tanks
- Flat Roofs on 4 ft. to 27 ft. diameter tanks
- Inverted Roofs (also known as Funnel Roofs) on 6 ft. to 18 ft. diameter tanks
Exteriors can be galvanized steel, timber, painted, or clad. Some customers use our tanks as beautiful and distinctive signage. Our goal is to always create the solution that best meets your needs.
Engineered to last
Every CorGal corrugated, galvanized steel tank will be engineered to meet IBC 2013 standards with the option to upgrade based on site specific requirements or customer preference. We offer a thorough, site-specific structural design calculation package, which is developed and stamped by a licensed engineer, as an option on every project. This important engineering package ensures the tank is built to the location’s requirements by taking numerous calculations into account, such as wind and snow loads plus seismic activity. Every tank includes a geotextile preliner and a flexible membrane liner, which prevent corrosion by keeping water away from the steel interior of the tank to prolong the product’s lifespan. Concrete foundations are necessary to stabilize the tank position and limit movement in the event of extreme weather or natural disaster. Tanks can also be constructed on a tower or other elevated location if gravity flow or high visibility are desired.
Fast and economical
CorGal Tanks are built on site, more quickly and at a fraction of the cost of old-fashioned bolted steel or welded steel tanks. Because it arrives unassembled, the tank can be erected on difficult-to-access project sites and can be disassembled and relocated, if necessary.
CorGal Tanks have an expected lifespan of 50+ years. They are always protected under a 10 year structural warranty. Each liner has its own individual warranty, ranging from 5 to 12 years.
