    Fire Rated Oil Tanks

    Fire rated heating oil tanks are required when the tank is to be installed in close proximity to fire hazards. If you wish to install a heating oil tank close to potentially combustible materials, a fire resistant tank offers the perfect choice and can be a more cost effective and discreet solution than other fire protection measures. Here you can find a wide range of fire rated tanks in capacities to suit all requirements.

    Non-Domestic:

    60 minute fire protection – install a non-domestic tank adjacent to buildings and boundaries

    Tuffa’s fire protected oil tanks serve as an alternative means of compliance when compared to traditional fire barriers. Tuffa’s fire protected tank system has LABC certification proving compliance with local authorities across Britain. However, it is the responsibility of the Competent Person installing the tank, or the building inspector certifying the installation, to ensure a site-specific risk assessment has been conducted.

    30 minute fire protection - Enables the installation of an oil tank a minimum of 300mm from other buildings and structures. Where access is required, then a minimum distance of 600mm is required.

    60 minute fire protection - Enables the installation of an oil tank within a garage or other internal space where it is impractical to install the tank externally to the building. The tank must be installed in an uninhabitable area (e.g. a garage or outbuilding), at the lowest possible level in the building or structure. Additionally, the tank must be installed a minimum of 300mm from other internal walls and structures or 600mm where access is required.

    Fire Rated Oil Tanks

    Why Choose A Fire Rated Heating Oil Tank?

    Fire rated heating oil tanks are those tanks that have a fire-retardant material that acts as a fire barrier in the case of the tank coming into contact with flame. Heating oil tanks are most commonly used at residential properties to supply fuel for a central heating system, yet they can also be installed at commercial properties or agricultural sites. 

    While there are legal restrictions regarding how close an ordinary heating oil tank can be placed to a property, a fire-rated model can be placed significantly closer than a non-rated product, or in some cases within an appropriate structure, allowing for a far more discreet installation.

    Fire rated tanks can also negate requirements for additional fire protection screens and walls to be installed depending on where they are located. These measures which may be necessary if a non fire rated tank is to be installed can often result in visual disturbance as well as adding significant extra cost to an installation project. 

    Northern Tank Store offers bunded fire proof heating oil tanks in robust steel construction, as well as a range of plastic fire rated heating oil tanks. All are backed by full manufacturers warranty and are engineered to provide many years of trouble free service when correctly installed and maintained.

    Benefits of Fire Rated Heating Oil Tanks

    Current UK regulations specify that a heating oil tank must be situated at least 1.8 metres away from any building structures. Upgrading to a fire-rated heating oil tank makes it possible to install a tank in closer quarters to a building and ensure full compliance with local authority building control requirements.

    Our fire rated heating oil tanks all come with either 30 or 60 minute tested fire resistance, enough to give peace of mind when it comes to safety and security and ensuring suitability for both commercial and domestic use. Even though they may be situated closer to buildings, fire rated tanks are still a safer option overall. 

    Fire rated tanks also come with all of the other safety features you’d expect, which are in many cases now legal requirements. All tanks have been fully tested in their ability to prevent leakage, keep evaporative emissions to a minimum, and store fuel securely for lengthy periods of time. Above a capacity of 2500l, heating oil tanks must be bunded (meaning the fuel is stored in an inner chamber within the tank) which provides additional benefits relating to protection against spillage. Bunded tanks are also a requirement if installed in close proximity to controlled water. Fire rated heating oil tanks must comply with this as well as other European and UK Government directives, and all of the products we offer have been selected to ensure full compliance with all relevant regulations.

    If you’re unsure whether a fire rated tank is the right choice for you, or have any queries regarding the best solution for your fuel storage requirements, contact our team who will be able to assist you.
