The frame of the tank is made of galvanized corrugated steel. Corrugation increases several times the rigidity of the frame. For example, a tank made of corrugated metal with a thickness of 1 mm in stiffness corresponds to a container made of “smooth” metal with a thickness of 4-5 mm.

The frame of each tank and bolted joints is calculated with a minimum margin of safety – 1.5. The average margin of safety is 2.
The corrugated sheets are connected with special screws that have a strength class of 8.8 and a special semicircular head. In addition to galvanizing, the screws are additionally cobalt coated. Since the screw is mainly in a humid environment, passivation of cobalt by an average of 5 years increases its service life.
Inside the frame, between the insert and galvanized sheets, as well as at the bottom of the tank a protective fabric is installed. High-density waterproof geotextile is used as a protective fabric. Geotextiles prevent friction and abrasion of the insert to the bottom or metal walls of the tank. The thickness of the geotextile is 1 mm.
Tanks are attached to the concrete base with special clamps. Clamps prevent the movement of the empty tank in strong winds and natural disasters.
