Deploy Tech has introduced an innovative inflatable concrete water storage tank for the UK market.
The key to the tank’s ‘deploy-ability’ is the Concrete Canvas, a cement filled geotextile used for the construction. This means the tank can be folded up for shipment and delivered to site in a timber crate, measuring just 2.5m by 1.2m. A two-man installation team then simply connects a compressor to one of the PVC-U taps to inflate the structure before the outer surface is hydrated and left to cure.
Ready for use at the end of the second day, the company say the tank will give robust, weather resistant service for 20+ years in applications including drinking water supply, farming, rainwater harvesting and emergency situations including firefighting.
Designated ‘R’ for Rural, there are three sizes in the range, all two metres in height and varying in diameter. The entry level 14R is three metres in diameter and has a capacity of 14,000 litres. The 25R is four metres across and has a capacity of 25,000 litres while the largest, 40R is five metres in diameter and will hold 40,000 litres.
