Fire Protection Water Storage Tanks
Above Ground, Corrugated Steel
by Steel Core Tank
Steel Core Tank is the next generation of design, engineering, and manufacturing of water storage tanks for fire protection. Each tank is individually engineered for its application. Georgia Water Tanks also provides Claval altitude valves, fire department connections, as well as other controls, for a coordinated solution to fire protection water storage needs.
Corrugated Steel Above-Ground Tanks are often the most economical and longest lasting form of storage for fire protection water. Fire protection tanks from Steel Core Tanks are manufactured according to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA-22), Factory Manual (FM), and American Water Works Association (AWWA) standards. SCT offer a huge range of approved tanks that conform to NFPA-22 requirements.
The modular bolted design allows for a fast and easy installation in all types of weather and requires no field coating, welding, or cranes. The polymer liner design is less expensive intially, requires less routine maintenance, and is easier, faster, and less expensive to repair than spray coatings.
SITE SPECIFIC ENGINEERING
We offer a site-specific structural design calculation package (SDCP), stamped by a professional engineer licensed to practice in the project location. This ensures each tank is built to the location’s specific requirements and complies with local ordinances and laws, protecting all parties. Site specific tanks may incorporate thicker metal wall sheets or roof panels, stiffeners, heavy duty anchors, and other components to satisfy the local seismic, wind speed and live load requirements. We take engineering very seriously for the safety and security of all parties involved.
Steel Core Tanks is superior in design, quality, and support, and Georgia Water Tanks provides the best service in the Georgia. Our 20-year warranty on structural components is the strongest of any company like it. Georgia Water Tanks adds on to the parts-only warranty, so the WARRANTY INCLUDES LABOR.
Tanks are be custom built for any fire protection design. We understand the requirements of fire protection systems, and manufacture our tanks to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards.
By providing a dedicated source of water required by local codes in residential development, FGT Solutions fiberglass tanks are a preferred way to have access to large volumes of water. The tank provides unseen protection for the residents, yet is easily accessible for fire and municipal vehicles. FGT Solutions tanks are also used for commercial fire protection due to the inherent water tight properties of fiberglass and the large volume capacities.
HISHITANK™ is a trusted name backed up by more than 50 years of design. The tank is composed of fiberglass-reinforced plastic panels, supported by an external steel frame, and sealed with gaskets between each panel.
Since the tank is composed of a combination of panels, it can be designed in a variety of ways. This makes it possible to install the tank in spaces where it would normally be difficult for a tank to do so, as well as to make effective use of the space.
The panel strength is designed such that stress is distributed equally throughout the tank. Each project is computer analyzed, confirming displacement of all panels, and stress to any part of the panels. 10 year warranty.

No matter how challenging your requirements are, Cla-Val has the fire protection product you need to protect lives and property.
We recommend the model 610 – 01 for most applications. The reduced port prevents low pressures in the supplying water main, while still filling faster than the fire pump can draw.
