Why set up a fire protection tank or flexible tank?

In order to fight fires, firefighters may require the installation of flexible tanks at your site. Their capacities must be adapted to the type of risks faced (low, ordinary or probable risk, special risks, diverse) and your premises’ classification. In the event of an increase in your production or extension of your production or storage site, the capacity of your fire protection tanks may need to be increased.

Flexible fire protection tanks are essential for remote areas and areas with an insufficient water network. Flexible tanks are also useful when creating retail and residential areas. Flexible reserves can be used as a relay storage solution for forest fire control.

Regulations for Fire protection tank

Since 27 February 2015, new rules have been applied regarding fire defence to ensure the presence of fire water points (FWPs). The fire brigade must have a sufficient volume of water to deal with any situation. This water point must be available and easily accessible so that the fire brigade can respond quickly without having to waste time with additional operations.

In the same decree, it is specified that only the AFNOR NF (S62-250) and QB (CSTB) approved flexible tank can be installed when a need for additional water is detected. It is often necessary in isolated areas or places that are difficult to access, with a large number of people, which could lead to a shortage of water reserves, such as festivals, for example.
