Anti Floatation Design
Australian Tanks round tanks are a ‘single pour’ tank, constructed with a built-in anti-floatation square base.
Once lowered into the ground, the tank’s weight combined with the back-loaded soil loading on the anti-floatation ‘Wings’ of the base are enough to counter any hydrostatic uplift forces. The Australian Tanks 25kL tank is the only tank that requires an additional 200mm cover to achieve this.
- The Australian Tanks 7,000L rectangle tank weighs 9.0 Tonne with the lid on.
- The Australian Tanks 1500mm ID Pit weights exceed the volumes displaced.
The unique anti-floatation design provides on-site efficiencies and financial savings from potentially not having to manage water trucks on-site to add ballast in the tanks (May still be required prior to backfilling depending on the water height), and not requiring project management of concrete trucks to pour and tie in a ballast footing.
Australian Tanks are the smart choice for an easy install on-site.
