Innovation in fuel storage safety

Fireguard™ technology has advanced far beyond that of concrete-encased ASTs. The exterior steel wall provides superior protection against the elements and low-cost maintenance.

Will last longer

Cracking concrete and spalling will never be a problem again with the innovative design of Fireguard™ Tanks.

75% Lighter means lower transport costs

The thermal insulating material is super lightweight — 75% lighter than concrete — reducing shipping, installation and relocation costs.

Sized to suit your needs

Fireguard™ tanks come in many more size options than most competitors. These include cylindrical or rectangular design, compartmentalised configurations, concrete pad designs for sites in Seismic Zone 4 and tank supports manufactured in accordance with STI’s UL Listings.
