Product Description

1350SLBFP 1350 Litre Tuffa Bunded Fire Protected Tank

1350 litre (approx. 297 gallons) bunded Fire Protected storage tank.

This quality fire protected tank is suitable for domestic fuel oil storage. The tank consists of an inner and outer tank, with a fire protection layer which provides either 30 or 60 minutes of protection. Tuffa fire protected oil tanks come with internal fire protection (not an externally constructed fire wall) which offers quick, easy, affordable & convenient installation.

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.

30 minute fire protection

Enables the installation of an oil tank a minimum of 300mm from other buildings and structures. Where access is required (e.g. at the front of the tank to fill it) then a minimum distance of 600mm is required.

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.

Top Outlet tanks are a "Special Order" and therefore "Non-Returnable".

Manufactured from recyclable polyethylene this UK made Tuffa tank is corrosion resistant, has high impact strength and is UV stabilised. 

Please check current building regulations for up to date rules on oil storage and fire protection requirements.

What is a bunded tank?

A bunded tank consists of a 'tank within a tank'.

The inner tank is the primary storage vessel, whilst the outer tank acts as a failsafe.

In the event of a spill, surplus fuel will safely and securely be stored within the outer tank and an environmental pollution incident will be averted. 

Installation requirements

All TUFFA Fire Protected tanks should be installed on a level non-combustible base which extends 300mm beyond the perimeter of the tank (with the exception of any sides which are adjacent fire rated walls - in this case, a minimum of 100mm should be provided). The installation should be completed by a competent person and signed off either through building control or a competent persons scheme (such as APHC).

Fuel Tank Shop 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

Returns Information

Customers may return items within 14 calendar days (as per our Terms & Conditions) - refer to 4.6 & 4.7. **

Please be aware that returning a tank can be complicated and expensive so please check that you are ordering the correct item (we suggest checking the dimensions very carefully).

Delivery Information

Tanks:

The delivery of a tank can be confusing as each manufacturer offers a slightly different service and lead time. Please refer to our Delivery Information page.  Standard tank deliveries are "kerbside".

Accessories:

Most accessories will be delivered within 1-3 working days. If you require them quicker, we can on occasions offer a next day service (please contact us to discuss). If the item(s) are out of stock we will advise you of the expected lead time and you will of course have the opportunity to cancel with a full refund.
