Custom L-shaped Fire Water Storage Tank for mixed-use building

Custom L-shaped Fire Water Storage Tank for mixed-use building


We recently supplied an AS2304 compliant L-shaped Fire Water Tank to a mixed-use building in Moonee Ponds. The effective water capacity was 50,000 litres with a divider wall in between.


The architect had not allocated sufficient space for the regular square tank in the building drawings.

The building contractor wanted to relocate the tank to make way for a couple of additional car park spaces. There were also many pillars in the basement of the building which was an obstruction.

So Allflo was approached by the builder to provide a suitable solution and still be compliant with the relevant standards.


A special L-shaped fire water tank was designed as shown in the photos. The tank was specially designed to wrap around the pillars and still have necessary clearance on all sides. After a couple of meetings and technical discussions, the consultant approved the design.

The job had to be completed within 7 weeks, including the lost time awaiting design approval. However, everyone worked as a team and we were able to handover the job within the deadline and meet all the project requirements.


Key benefits of the square (or custom shaped) tanks:

  • Customized tank shape to suit site requirement
