Industrial Fires: Water Storage Tanks A Necessity

Industrial fires can have a devastating impact on businesses, their employees and the local economy. That is why water storage tanks are important in large-scale industrial premises. Connected to modern fire-fighting equipment, stored water can quickly contain a fire and stop it from spreading. This is important to maintain operations and minimise damage.

Nationwide Water Solutions works with businesses in the industrial sector. It supplies and installs a huge range of water tanks designed to work with automatic sprinkler systems. If your business has yet to invest in state-of-the-art fire safety equipment, now is the time.

How water storage tanks support businesses

By containing a fire with the help of water storage tanks, industrial businesses can limit the impact on productivity. Reducing the impact of a fire to a small area means a business can maintain productivity levels. A spokesman for Nationwide Water Solutions said: “Industrial fires are more common than a lot of people think. Even a false alarm can hit production, meaning good fire fighting equipment is essential. Knowing that your premises benefits from an instant water supply to fight a fire around the clock offers complete peace of mind.”

Yesterday afternoon firefighters were called to reports of an industrial fire in Newport. Crews from Newport and Ryde attended Newport Quay just after 4.30pm. On this occasion, it was a false alarm and crews were stood down. Nationwide Water Solutions understands an alarm was triggered by external fumes.


Water storage tanks: installation and refurbishment

As well as installing water storage tanks, Nationwide Water Solutions also repairs and refurbishes existing ones that are showing signs of wear. It provides a nationwide underwater inspection service and has a team of fully trained engineers to carry out repair work.

How To Minimise Fire Damage With A Water Storage Tank

A fire can start anywhere at any time – often when you are least expecting it. That is why it pays to have a water storage tank connected to automatic sprinklers. Minimising damage is essential to save lives and property – not to mention ensure the continued operation of a business or public service.

A water storage tank is essential in buildings that are spread over multiple floors, contain a large amount of goods or pose a high risk. Warehouses, factories, care homes, hospitals, schools and tower blocks are among those recommended to invest in a robust fire fighting system. Having water readily available means a fire can be tackled quickly. Swift action can stop a fire from spreading and even extinguish it.


Water storage tank tips

Nationwide Water Solutions is the market-leading supplier of water storage tank services in the UK. A spokesman said: “Having enough water to douse a fire from the very beginning can bring a blaze under control quickly. At the very least, it will contain it. This gives people the time they need to safely evacuate a building.

“This week, we have seen fires in the UK start from mundane things like discarded cigarettes. Even something dropped outside a building can pose a hazard, meaning it makes sense for property owners to consider the benefits of storing water for the specific use of fighting a fire.”
