Elevated water tanks and tanks on towers provide for a combination of pressurized water from gravity feed as well as a highly visual statements. Towers can be constructed from either wood or steel in a variety of styles and heights.
Tank & Tower Engineering
Typically after a tower is designed, fabricated and erected the water tank (built at the factory for tanks under 8′ diameter otherwise built separately at ground level on-site) is lifted by crane to it’s resting place and secured with the appropriate fasteners.
Due to safety regulations just about all elevated tanks on towers require site specific engineering in order comply with local laws and ordinances which may vary by state.
Make a Statement
Water tanks on towers can provide a stunning architectural landmark for commercial as well as private properties and are often used in public parks, shopping centers, and of course on ranches. In addition the elevated structures provide high visibility for signage and advertising to attract new visitors or customers.
Take a look at our Technical Info pages for more information on the types of towers available as well as sample drawings.
