Traditional fire control systems are used universally. However, some objects of protection require the use of specific equipment based on the use of alternative means of fighting a fire. Our experienced engineers and experts can supply grp water storage tanks to match your specification.

The fire water tank should be of robust material and require minimal maintenance and servicing. Nicholson’s GRP cold water storage tanks are the ideal choice for the storage of water for fire protection purposes due to the strength capabilities of Glass Reinforced Plastics. GRP is proven to be one of the strongest materials on the market and due to its lightweight properties this material choice is the most cost-effective solution.  Our fire water tanks are manufactured in accordance with British Standards and have extensive experience working with fire protection companies and consultants alike.
