Tuffa 1350 Litre 60 Minute Bunded Fire Protected Oil Tank
Tuffa’s fire protected oil tanks serve as an alternative means of compliance when compared to traditional fire barriers. Tuffa’s fire protected tank system has LABC certification proving compliance with local authorities across Britain. However, it is the responsibility of the Competent Person installing the tank, or the building inspector certifying the installation, to ensure a site-specific risk assessment has been conducted.
Supplied complete with:
• Fire protection
• 2″ BSP fill connection with cap and chain
• Overfill prevention valve
• Manual float level gauge
• Electronic Watchman Sonic gauge
• Lockable flip lid
• 1″ bottom outlet
• Tank fittings kit (1”-1/2″ adaptor, ball valve and filter)
60 minute fire protection
Enables the installation of an oil tank within a garage or other internal space where it is impractical to install the tank externally to the building. The tank must be installed in an uninhabitable area (e.g. a garage or outbuilding), at the lowest possible level in the building or structure. Additionally, the tank must be installed a minimum of 300mm from other internal walls and structures or 600mm where access is required.
This Oil Tank must be installed and maintained in accordance to the current
OFTEC guidelines, by an OFTEC Registered Technician or similarly competent person.
Find My Oil Tank and the manufacturer will not be responsible for oil tank
installations which do not comply with these requirements.
OFTEC Base Construction Guidelines (in brief):
Adequate for the weight of the tank when full
Non-combustible, imperforate and level
Constructed of concrete, paving stones or stonework
Large enough to extend 300mm beyond ALL sides of the tanks
