How does weather impact storage tanks?
Snow and Ice
Extreme cold can cause stress on roof loads. Continuous amounts of heavy snow can cause stress on the roof and walls of storage tanks, which causes them to weaken over time. Assmann Uniform Wall Tanks stand stronger than thin-walled, Tapered Tanks. For those who live through heavy winters, Assmann tanks will stand up stronger than the competition.
Plastic tanks are prone to UV degradation, especially in hot climates. Because we make our tanks with uniform wall thickness, Assmann tanks are prepared to last longer, despite hot weather conditions. As well, we offer insulation for heat management, ideal for those living in states with hot weather all year round.
For areas prone to high winds, extra stability is necessary. Assmann tie-downs and restraints help keep tanks upright and in place.
Earthquakes can have significant impact on storage tanks. At Assmann, we have a variety of tank accessories to implement extra stability, ensuring that each storage tank can stay securely in place, despite seismic weather conditions.

Restraints & Tie-Down Systems
Whether you want to buy tie-downs for your current Assmann tanks, or install them on your next one, we encourage customers who live in seismic or high wind areas to utilize tank restraints. Tie-down systems protect your tanks during transportation and weather events. We offer passive restraint assemblies and tie-down assemblies for our clients to apply to their tank systems.
