Fire Protection

APRO Industrie designs, manufactures and installs fire-fighting tanks up to 25,000 m3 in France and Internationally.
Fire protection is an essential challenge for classified installations and in particular for so-called “special hazard” installations: industrial chemical and petrochemical sites, SEVESO classified sites, power stations, etc. In that context and thanks to our experience of sensitive sites, we at APRO Industrie are able to provide fire protection tanks.
APRO Industrie storage solutions enable the construction of weld-free storage tanks (no flames) without the need for working at heights (further information under “installation”
The APRO Industrie teams are certified (in particular N1, N2, MASE) and work with a constant concern for compliance with the strictest safety rules. Our sub-contractors are also subject to periodic evaluations (see our “Health and Safety” page) which guarantee the same level of service.


APRO Industrie fire protection tanks consists of sheets prepared in our factory and bolted together on site. The metallic shell and the hardware are galvanised steel. Other materials are also available (aluminium, stainless steel, enamelled steel or epoxy-coated steel). Fire protection tanks are installed above ground and are anchored to a concrete slab which provides the mechanical seating for the tank.
Sealing of the bolted metallic tank is provided by a reinforced PVC liner which is prefabricated in our factory to the dimensions of the tank. This membrane also forms the bottom of the tank and is laid on an anti-perforation felt spread over the concrete base. Sealing may also be achieved by a mastic seal.
The water contained in the fire protection tank is preserved from daylight, which in particular avoids the development of algae through photosynthesis, and contamination of the water by debris and miscellaneous waste.
APRO Industrie storage solutions constitute an economical and reliable alternative to welded tanks. In addition to the safety related advantages mentioned above, their implementation in particular provides a considerable time-saving on site, through the prefabrication of the tanks and their delivery in the form of ready-to-assemble kits.
Our fire-fighting tanks are supplied with all the accessories required by the regulations, and numerous options are also available: polyester external paint, extruded sections for mounting of cladding or thermal insulation, level switches, heating wand automation etc.
Our special hazard tanks thus provide optimum, reliable and lasting protection, at numerous classified installations.
