The corrugated galvanised water tank is an enduring image of the Australian landscape. Like anything that has been around for over 100 years, there are solid reasons for its longevity. Aquamate realised a long time ago that galvanised corrugated steel was the ideal building material to contain the significant pressures produced by large volume water storage, as well as providing the highest level of corrosion protection. Using galvanised steel walls enables Aquamate to offer a unique 20 year warranty without the hassle and cost of servicing or replacing anodes, unlike Zincalume® coated tanks.
The combination of lightweight steel and heavy duty galvanising make Aquamate tanks shells perfectly suited to water storage. By using lightweight thin-gauge steel panels, Aquamate’s tanks have all of the required strength without the excess cost. All tank panels are coated with a heavy galvanised layer, with three times the coating weight of typical zinc-aluminium alloy coatings.
Aquamate use a specially blended polymer for all of our tank liners. The unsupported polyolefin that Aquamate use is flexible, resistant to fatigue cracking and super stretchy – all things you need for a durable water tank. Manufactured in-house at Aquamate’s state-of-the-art production facility in South Australia, the quality of our tank liners is the reason we can offer a 20 year no-leaks guarantee.
