Using advanced designed facilities and in collaboration with leading structural engineers, FTS Tanks has designed water storage tanks that are suitable for the harsh South African climate and is ideal for export into Africa.With only two existing Zincalume profiles currently available in South Africa, we make use of the more improved V-LOCK system. FTS Tanks’ and partners unique and exclusive 7-120 v-lock wall profile is designed to give the strength corrugated without the pitfalls of an overstretch liner that is molding with the tank. The profile design also maximized the strength to ensure it stay in shape when full or empty. The vertical seams where the structure bolts are connected to the tank panels are fully covered using a bolt strip and cover assembly to provide a smooth tamper free tank.The panels and roof sheets are made of steel that is hot dipped and coated with a formulation of Aluminum of 55%, Zinc of 43,5% and Silicone of 1.5%. The zinc in the coating protects the steel when exposed.All our tanks are lined on the inside with a certified portable water liner suitable for storing drinking water. Under normal climate and operation conditions the liner will have lifetime of 60+ years.Proprietary FTS Tanks bolt design M12 & M14 with serrated flange head. Hot dipped galvanized to SANS 121:2011 ISO 1461:2009. Bolts are high tensile 8.8 grade. Bolts test certifications available on request.With assistance of Professional Engineers, we improved the dome roof design to the fish-bone truss design. Clear span self-supporting roof with no center post. All trusses are hot dipped galvanized after fabrication. Technical data sheets are available on re-quest.All fittings/nozzles are manufactured from mild steel and hot dipped galvanized to SANS 121:2011 ISO 1461:2009 after fabricationFTS Tanks carry an industrial standard 12 month workmanship and material guarantee and a 10 year non-leak warranty is applicable provided that tank is in stalled by an approved FTS Tank installer.3-8 Weeks manufacturing time depends on model.Level site capable of supporting a 100kPa with sand bed or concrete ring beam as required. Site preparations to be arrange by client in accordance with engineers recommendation prior to installation.Ring beam width and depth are tank model dependent and allow for specialized jacking when required.
