Heritage Water Tanks have an attractive, strong, durable and engineer certified steel wall, with the option of either a Corrugated or Streamline profile. Every Heritage Water Tank uses 1mm BlueScope Steel. If you’re researching other tanks in the marketplace, you will find variations in all sizes as low as 0.6mm.
Compared to other tanks available, Heritage Water Tank walls are thicker and therefore more resistant to outward pressure. The thicker grade of steel used also means that our tanks are more likely to have greater longevity and are more resistant to corrosion than tanks with a thinner wall profile. All domestic Heritage Water Tanks use 1mm BlueScope Steel. If you’re researching other tanks in the marketplace, you will find variations in all sizes as low as 0.6mm
BlueScope ZINCALUME® steel, has been proven to be longer lasting than galvanised steel, because the coatings on galvanised steel and ZINCALUME® steel perform in different ways. ZINCALUME® steel has much better corrosion protection (and service life) than galvanised steel.
Side by side exposure testing has shown corrosion protection provided by ZINCALUME® steel with an AZ150 (150g/m2 ) coating mass is far superior to that provided by galvanised steel with a Z275 (275g/m2 ) coating mass.
The tests demonstrated that ZINCALUME® steel corrosion protection can last at least four times longer than the corrosion protection provided by traditional zinc coated steels in roofing and walling applications in identical environments.
Note: Pioneer tanks have a wall thickness in bottom panels of 1mm in sizes over 130,000L and 1.2mm in bottom panels in tanks from 200,000L to 250,000L
Hot Dipped Galvanised Truss
Heritage Water Tanks has an attractive dome roof with a unique engineer certified truss design. All trusses are made from SHS (square hollow tub) on the top and bottom chord, fully welded and hot dipped galvanized, which gives peace of mind in strength and overall structure. The trusses are then covered with a corrugated ZINCALUME® or COLORBOND® roof sheet. All trusses are made to Australian Standards: AS 1170 & AS4100.
