Kingspan Rhino rural water tanks are available in a variety of sizes and COLORBOND® colours. Backed by our 20 year warranty, your Kingspan Rhino tank is ideal for rainwater harvesting and bore water storage. All Kingspan Rhino rural water tanks come fitted to your particular specifications, ensuring the tank meets your needs. Tanks are fabricated in our own factory, meaning we control and ensure the quality of every tank.
The Kingspan Rhino range of rural water tanks is the outcome of over 80 years of experience in the manufacturing of rainwater harvesting and storage solution. Utilising many structural features from our heavy duty industrial range you can be assured that you’re new rural tank is built to last and carries the highest structural wind rating in the market.
All Kingspan Rhino tanks are made from genuine Bluescope COLORBOND® or ZINCALUME® steel with a corrugated profile, which means our tanks have incredible wall strength and durability. Add to this a 250mm overlap at the joins and a 200mm double bolt spacing, and what you have is pure strength. With the 12mm bolts being hot-dipped galvanized, corrosion doesn’t stand a chance.
In order to ensure complete quality control, once manufactured, our tanks are then built on site by our team of specialists. Tanks are manufactured as a kit and sent to site for assembly.
Keeps Water Fresh
Tank liners are one of the most critical components of a water tank. They, more than anything else, ensure your water remains fresh, taste-free and completely safe from any contaminants. The Kingspan Rhino Infinity Liner is made in our own factory and features cutting edge technological advancements in liner fabric. Infinity Liner is a state of the art food grade, UV treated, multi layered metallocene film laminated to the existing reinforced polyethylene liner, giving it unparalleled layers of strength, safety and durability. Infinity is exclusive to Kingspan and comes with a service life in excess of 30 years.
Kingspan Rhino rural tanks are available in the sizes listed below. All tanks are 2.2 metres high.
For tanks larger than 260,000ltrs or for customised sizes, please contact us for specifications.
Every Kingspan Rhino rural tank is conditionally guaranteed for 20 years. What’s more, every 5 years a Kingspan service agent will inspect your tank and replace the sacrificial magnesium anodes around the bottom of the tank. So you never have to worry about your tank or the water in it.
Our rural water tanks are specifically designed keeping in mind the unique needs of rural users. We understand that each situation is different and requirements may differ from customer to customer. Therefore, Kingspan Rhino rural tanks are fitted with all the basic features required on a water tank and can then be customised to suit individual requirements.
Kingspan Rhino Safeguard
Kingspan has installed thousands of water tanks over many years in some of the driest, most fire prone regions of Australia and around the world. During this time we have found one of the main reasons for asset and property loss in a fire is due to an inadequate water supply and the failure of the pumping system. To alleviate these problems and greatly increase the chance of saving your property, Kingspan has developed a new product series called Kingspan Rhino Safeguard.
The Kingspan Rhino Safeguard series gives you a more fire resistant and reliable water supply for your fire protection system and is totally unique to Kingspan.
The key aspects of the Kingspan Rhino Safeguard Water Tank range are:
A unique dual skin, 3-stage insulated tank wall system
Kingspan Rhino Safeguard tanks have all penetrations through the floor of the tank buried underground to a heavy duty, fire resistant, galvanised valve box. The Kingspan Rhino Safeguard tank also comes with a galvanised riser with a fire fighting coupling relevant to your specific state regulations. The overflow riser is plumbed internally to the usual overflow height for the maximum capacity of the tank.
Split Take Off System
The high level take off is for domestic pump usage and the low level take off point is for the fire system pump. The levels of these take off points will vary from tank to tank dependent on how much water you are required to have designated for your individual fire protection system.
Roof Mounted Sprinkler System
The system is internally plumbed and matched to the diameter of the tank roof. The sprinkler is designed to reduce the radiated heat and extinguish embers by creating a moisture barrier around the whole tank.
Our tanks are manufactured as a kit and sent to site for assembly by our experienced team.
It is the customer’s responsibility to prepare a level pad of sand or crusher dust. The pad needs to be 150mm deep at the specified diameter.
Kingspan provides detailed pad specifications to all customers to assist them in achieving an excellent quality pad. In some areas Kingspan can recommend contractors who have previously prepared quality pads for our tanks.
In some circumstances, your tank may need to be installed on a concrete ring beam, instead of sand or crusher dust. If your tank is to have an outlet larger than 100mm, or if it is higher than the standard height of 2.2m, then it is a requirement for a concrete ring beam to be provided. Kingspan will provide the customer with all relevant specifications for these concrete ring beams upon request.
Once the tank has been installed the customer is required to place an exclusion zone of a minimum of 20mm blue metal/coarse aggregate (no clay or concrete) around the base of the tank to prevent erosion and deter rodents from digging around the base.
Kingspan supplies a full solution, including accessories, pumps and filters, as well as advice on the right size tank to service needs for household supply on rural and semi-rural properties.
Fire water storage tanks for residential, rural and commercial applications that are fitted with the relevant fire fittings and accessories to ensure compliance to AS 2419.
Kingspan supply primary producers with quality, economical, large capacity water tanks designed to handle the harsh Australian conditions.
