Unlike Bunded Oil Tanks, Single Skin Oil Tanks incorporate no form of secondary containment whatsoever. Therefore, in the event of a spillage, an environmental pollution incident may result. Single Skin Tanks are therefore inherently unsuitable for installation at any agricultural, commercial, industrial and institutional installations, or at domestic installations with a capacity over 2,500 litres.
At many installations, fitting a Single Skin Oil Tank where a Bunded Tank is legally required is an Offence.
Even where a Single Skin Tank may currently suffice, serious consideration should be given to fitting a Bunded Tank.
What is a Bunded Tank?
A Bunded Tank simply consists of an ‘tank within an tank’. In the event of a spillage, the liquid will collect in the outer tank, preventing the environment from becoming polluted. Bunded Tanks are now required at commercial, industrial, institutional and agricultural premises.

Steel Tanks offer storage for many liquids including oils, petrols, waste oils, diesel, biodiesel, AdBlue, rain water, potable water and more. If you have a concern whether a steel tank would suit your needs just get in touch!
While a rectangular tank is more space efficient, cylindrical tanks are recommended for higher volume tanks. Cylindrical tanks are more structurally efficient and will more successfully withstand the outward directed pressure of the liquid stored within.
