Braithwaite NEPTUNE GRP One Piece water storage tanks: BS EN 13280: 2001

The Design - One Piece GRP Water Storage Tanks
Glass Reinforced Polyester is a thermoset composite of polyester resin and glass fibre. Polyester resins are inert, with very low water absorption and toxicity levels; glass fibre too is inert and has a very high tensile strength.
Together they form a composite material which is strong, durable and ideal for water storage. This composite known as GRP, has become widely used for water tank construction and the safe storage of drinking water.

Braithwaite provide a comprehensive range of standard pre-insulated cisterns to suit WRAS Regulations and BS EN 13280: 2001. The range is periodically expanded to provide greater flexibility to suit our customers requirements and are manufactured using high quality GRP. The process is controlled by the use of templates for the cutting of mat and the mechanical dosing of catalyst at the point of application. The tanks are inspected at critical stages of manufacture to ensure a consistently high quality product.

Braithwaite implement and maintain an effective quality system which complies with the requirements of EN ISO 9001:2000
