Installing an NFPA 22 Fire Tank in Alabama

SBS Tanks Standard (ST) Series

Simplicity meets durability.


The SBS ST water tank range offers water and liquid storage capacities from 3,170 gallons to an impressive 1,112,000 gallons. Tank panels comprising of Galvalume G300 steel, a continuous hot-dipped aluminium /zinc alloy-coated structural steel that is highly corrosion resistant in most applications, provides durable support for the steel panel tank body. NSF/ANSI 61 certified liners, that are suitable for storage of potable, effluence, leachate, saltwater, and other industrial liquids, prevent stored liquids from making direct contact with the steel water tank structure, further reducing corrosion risk factor. Our Standard Tanks (ST) are meticulously designed to suit a wide array of applications, from fire suppression systems to Ranch rainwater harvesting, these tanks offer you a robust solution for your water storage needs.

Key features of the SBS standard range:

  • Built to Last: With a Wind rating of up to 96mph and crafted from Galvalume panels, our high-quality, corrosion resistant steel, our tanks boast a 60+ year lifespan under normal conditions, while conforming to internationally recognised ISO standards.

  • Versatile and Reliable: From 3,170 gallons to 1,112,000 gallons. Whether you need a compact solution or a larger storage capacity, our tanks deliver consistent performance.

  • Safety Assured: Our tanks come with multi-layer woven PVC liners tested to NSF/ANSI 61 specifications for potable water. With additional options for chemical-resistant liners, we ensure the safety and integrity of your stored liquids.

  • Stability in Seismic Zones: With reinforced structures and custom engineering options our tanks offer unmatched stability in earthquake-prone regions.

  • Quick and Convenient Installation: With straightforward installation procedures, requiring no heavy-duty equipment, our ST Range minimizes downtime and ensures a hassle-free setup and commissioning process.
