Who do the oil storage regulations affect?
If you store more than 200 litres of oil above ground (in one or more containers) at an industrial, commercial or institutional site, then these regulations will affect you. They cover factories, shops, offices, hotels, schools, public sector buildings and hospitals. The regulations apply only in England.

Which types of oil are covered?
All types of oil, with the exception of waste oil, are covered by these regulations, including petrol, diesel, vegetable, synthetic and mineral oil. Waste oil storage is covered by the Waste Management Licensing Regulations. It is important to note that in the case of flammable liquids, such as petrol, additional health and safety requirements may also apply.

Tank Linings and Epoxy Coatings


Tank Linings and Epoxy Coatings

We provide tank linings and epoxy coatings. Replacing a tank is not always the best solution. The tank may only require lining for many more years of service at a fraction of the cost of replacing the tank. Epoxy coated linings and GRP linings last for many years and are a particularly effective solution to prolonging the expected life of an existing system. Our lining systems coat the inside of the tank with the material and cures to a durable finish superior to Butyl and other rubber liners.

Key benefits of our tank linings and epoxy coatings:

  • Cost-effective alternative to replacing tanks
  • Reduce downtime of system
  • Approved materials used for required usage
  • Fittings do not require replacing
