Holds no secrets….

Water storage holds no secrets for us. Gauris is fully at home in the world of water storage. For large volumes, we can rapidly ‘weld’ the water tanks to each other onsite so they are guaranteed to be watertight. Water holds no secrets for us. To be more specific, we can make any shape, volume, thickness, or in fact any application. Custom made, even in larger production runs. We do this ourselves at our new production facility in Heerenveen, Friesland, where we use the latest equipment which ensures dimensional stability. Gauris manages the entire process from the moment that the order arrives to when we personally deliver it on-site. Anywhere in the world.

Water silos can range in diameter from 1 m to 32 m and heights of between 1 m and 5.5 m. Our water silos are durable and easy to assemble. The steel plates are distinct because of their dimensional stability and mechanical tensile strength. We apply a watertight silo cladding to all our water silos. We can deliver our liners in a variety of types and thicknesses that are suitable for storing rain water (clean water) and recirculation water.

We are seeing an increasing demand across the world for water storage and the need to improve sanitary provisions in third-world countries. That is why we have recently added concept development for the purification and storage of drinking water to our product portfolio and it forms an important cornerstone for the future.

Gauris provides a wide range of covering options to combat the algae growth and evaporation in the water silo. The options include an anti-algae cover, floating roof, stretch cover or even a steel roof. Furthermore, our range includes materials that have been specifically developed and are suitable for water storage in countries with extreme climatic conditions, such as heat, cold and high UV radiation.

We also supply manure silos. Although these silos are suitable for manure, they can naturally also be used for sludge and all kinds of other fluids. The inside of the manure silo is fitted with a high-quality FPP 1 mm manure sack. A floating roof can be fitted as standard to the tank, but a tensioned cover can also be fitted for diameters up to 25 m. The manure silo is usually emptied and filled through a removal/filling pipe along the bottom of the tank or a tube along the edge where required.

We are pleased to advise you on the solution that best meets your need.

Foil 1: PVC

A well-known material that is also cheap to purchase Easy to process. Suitable for storing both clean and lightly chlorinated water.

pvc foil
  • Inexpensive to purchase
  • Easy to process
  • Excellent self-repair properties

Foil 2: FPP

Suitable for storing clean water, rain water and recirculation water Can even be used for storing drinking water Even for peak temperature water at over 80 ° Celsius. Resistant to UV radiation.

FPP foil
  • Resistant to UV radiation
  • Suitable for high peak temperature
  • Can be used for storing drinking water

Foil 3: EPDM

We can supply European EPDM in a variety of thicknesses (from 0.75 mm to 1.5 mm).

EPDM liners are made from rubber. They are strong and retain their natural elasticity for an extremely long time. It is also highly resistant against UV radiation. This liner can be used for at least 20 years. EPDM liner is slightly more flexible than PVC liner. That is why it is easier to fit EPDM liner during the manufacture of water tanks.

epdm foil
  • High elasticity (+/- 400%)
  • Supple material
  • Long lifespan (> 20 years)
  • 10-year guarantee
  •  Resistant against UV
