Design & Construction of Tank Covers
Supported tank cover
All tank covers are constructed to include:
- An access flap for an inlet pipe and ball valve
- Eyelets on the cover circumference for securing the cover to the tank
- Where required we can also supply ladder buckle straps to secure the cover, using the eyelets, to the tank.
Supported Tank Covers
If the tank to be covered has a diameter of more than 18′, a central pole is required to support the cover and remove excessive sagging.
When using a centre pole for support, the cover is supplied with a base plate on which the pole sits, and a top plate that fits on the top of the pole. The pole is then secured in place by connecting guide ropes from the top plate to the wall of the tank.
Once the pole has been secured in place, the cover can installed quickly and easily over the suspended ropes. For increased durability, the cover has reinforcing in the centre where it is in contact with the top plate.
