Today, Carbery tanks are the preferred choice of Heating Oil Tanks of thousands of fuel distributors, heating oil technicians, architects and specifiers, who quite sensibly refuse to settle for a lesser brand.
All Carbery products are manufactured in Ireland at the company’s purpose built production facilities in Clonakilty, Co. Cork. Every Carbery tank benefits from being produced at a globally recognised centre of excellence for the design, development and manufacture of rotationally moulded products.
Did you know?
Heating oil tanks are not ‘fit and forget’ products, nor are they suitable for DIY installation. Instead, every oil tank should only be installed and maintained by a technician registered with OFTEC – The Oil Firing Technical Association.
There are thousands of OFTEC Registered Technicians throughout Great Britain and Ireland. Each technician is independently assessed and accredited to ensure their competence and is certified to undertake work on fuel oil storage installations. In England and Wales, OFTEC Registered Technicians are also able to self-certify their work to ensure compliance with Building Regulations… potentially saving consumers time and money at every installation.
To find you local technician, visit OFTEC online at www.oftec.org or call OFTEC in the Republic of Ireland on 01 864 6637; in Great Britain, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man call 0845 65 85 080; and in Northern Ireland call 0845 600 2105. Alternatively, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Important Information: To ensure compliance with OFTEC’s OFS T100 Standard, all Bunded Oil Tanks should be fitted with an overfill prevention device and either an Apollo Ultrasonic or Apollo Smart tank contents gauge. Surface Contact Area is the maximum base area of the product.
Consistent with OFTEC Technical Instruction Book 3, it is recommended the base upon which the tank is placed, extends a minimum of 300mm beyond the widest point of the tank. All tank bases must be fireproof and capable of supporting the full weight of the tank and its contents when fully laden.
