Rainwater Tanks

The high levels of U.V in Australian sunlight will not degrade steel as it does other organic tank materials such as plastic. Steel also fully blocks the penetration of U.V light which prevents algae growth and keeps water quality optimal.

Steel tanks are environmentally responsible, as steel is one of the most recycled materials available, and can be recycled even after many years of use.

Steel Water Tanks’ unique, contemporary profile is stylish, durable and structurally strong. It is flexible and strong in both tension and compression and will not crack or crumble under load like other composite tank materials such as concrete.

Steel is also fire-proof. This was demonstrated in 2006 when a Metal water tank was fire tested by the CSIRO Bushfire CRC and proved able to maintain structural integrity and retain water during and after a fire front, essential elements for fire protection.

Tanks come in a wide range of Colorbond colours and sizes including round and slimline.  We can help you decide which tank you need and where it should be located for maximum water harvesting.

Insulation

We use Insulation which is 70% recycled material.  Insulation can make a huge difference in energy costs over the short and long term.  We can recommend the appropriate batt size depending on your needs.  When deciding on Insulation you should take into account the following:

  • Energy control (R-value)
  • Noise control
  • Flame resistance
  • Condensation control
  • Your local climate

The biggest loss of heat is through your ceiling and roofs (up to 45%), so good ceiling and roof insulation is the number one priority. Install insulation under the roofing material to reduce radiant heat gain. Install insulation in the ceiling to reduce heat gain and loss.

Insulation is the single most energy-efficient addition you can make to your home. Insulation provides a barrier to heat flowing in and out of your home and is essential to keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer.

Insulation is measured on an R-rating scale: The higher the R-value, the more resistant the insulation is to heat flowing into and out of the home and the greater the energy savings. Remember, it is not the thickness of the insulation product that counts; it is the R-value. The higher the R-value, the better the thermal performance.

Insulating, shading and weatherproofing your house can save you up to 45 per cent on your current energy bills while increasing the comfort and value of your home. Minimising the need to heat and cool your home from the extremes of our summer and winter weather will also reduce your contribution to global warming.
