Stop domestic heating oil theft! By fitting a Securit Tank Guard!
Theft of heating and diesel oil has been a problem for many years and it is linked to when the price of crude oil rises. This makes oil a more attractive proposition for the thief and they are now actively targeting fuel tanks.
Securit Tank Guard is a galvanised steel enclosure which is designed to fit around the existing oil tank and the plinth. The enclosure will be larger than the oil tank which will enable you to gain access to install the Tank Guard. The steel panels will reach to the ground level and secured to the floor (if the tank is sited on a hard standing surface).
Securit Tank Guard are designed to enclose majority of tank’s including tanks with Oil Watchman’s.
The main idea of Tank Guard is that it hides the oil tank away from view as many people place the oil tanks in open areas and near to the roadside.
The enclosures are manufactured from galvanised steel sheets and then coated in Polyester powder coatings Polyester has very good edge covering, flow properties, wear resistance in addition to gloss retention in outdoor exposure.
To ensure the enclosure is strong and ridge the galvanised sheets are manufactured in double returned panels and pent roof is constructed into sections these are all bolted together.
Securit Tank Guards are supplied with all the fixtures and fittings. The majority of the panels are bolted internally, but the few external bolts are fitted with nylock nuts to prevent exposed bolts being removed. All exposed fixing will be bright zinc plate all hinges are stainless steel. The two shackless padlocks are supplied and fitted within the Tank Guard structure.
Securit Tank Guards are secured to the floor where the hard standing surface is suitable ideally a concrete plinth, which is slightly larger than the Securit Tank Guards ?
The construction of the enclosure are designed so that the tank can be replaced, filled and gain access for maintenance.To do this Securit Tank Guards are fitted with a large removable inspection hatch over the filler, a small door to access the value pipe and the construction is designed to be unbolted from the inside.
Tank Gaurds are supplied and fitted with secure BZP fixings. The access hatch is secured by shackless padlock lock and fitted with a large handle. The small access door for the value is secured locks (shackless padlocks).
For the larger tanks we can enclose them using galvanised sections which are simiular construction to heavy duty security fencing but the actual galvanised sections are designed around the actual shape of the oil tank.
Securit Tank Guard is now available, due to the different style tanks and access Securit Tank Guards are designed to your requirement please contact us for a quotation.
