Back To The Future As TankDepot.co.uk Relaunches Single Skin Oil Tanks
1st September 2011
In 2008, TankDepot.co.uk was the first national oil tank reseller to discontinue the sale and supply of Single Skin Oil Tanks. The decision to instead standardise the company’s heating oil tank range around Bunded Oil Tanks, was based upon feedback from heating oil tank technicians and a significant decline in Single Skin Oil Tank sales at that time.
However, the change in approach announced today recognises that a significant number of heating oil tank technicians continue to specify and install Single Skin Oil Tanks, as TankDepot.co.uk’s Director, Steve Beech explains.
Steve says, “Feedback suggests that as many heating oil tank technicians become more familiar with new oil storage installation regulations, they are increasingly finding ways to illegitimately install a Single Skin Oil Tank at many installations, whilst also ensuring compliance with all applicable fuel storage requirements.
“As an environmentally responsible business, we would however always recommend the installation of a Bunded Tank. And of course, we would also stress the importance of undertaking a risk assessment in accordance with OFTEC Technical Instruction Book 3 prior to product selection and installation.
“However, we also recognise the reality that at a significant number of heating oil installations, Single Skin Oil Tanks remain a legitimate product option. In this context, and as a customer driven business, it makes sense that we offer customers the tanks they require, whether they be Single Skin or Bunded.
For the company’s new range of Single Skin Oil Tanks, TankDepot.co.uk is offering the market-leading Titan range, manufactured in the UK by Kingspan Environmental & Renewables.
Approved by OFTEC, the Titan range consists of 11 different models, available in a choice of 9 different capacities. Standard Titan Single Skin Heating Oil Tanks are supplied complete with factory fitted fill, inspection and vent points and bottom outlet. The added value ‘Talking Titan range’ builds upon this specification and adds a Mechanical Overfill Prevention Valve, Watchman Sonic Electronic Oil Tank Contents Gauge and Bottom Outlet Oil Tank Fitting Kit.
Titan Single Skin Oil Tanks start at just £270.25 ex. VAT (£324.30 inc. VAT) inclusive of delivery to mainland locations in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Click here for more product information and to buy online from TankDepot.co.uk.
