Does COLORBOND contain lead?
No, COLORBOND does not contain lead. COLORBOND is made from steel, not aluminum, and is renowned for its lightweight and robust characteristics. It receives a topcoat of high-quality paint that is specifically formulated to be lead-free.

The base steel used in the production of COLORBOND is thinner yet stronger than usual, owing to the cold reduction process. This manufacturing approach contributes to the overall durability and performance of COLORBOND, assuring users that the material is free from lead, making it a safe and reliable choice for various applications.

Can Colorbond water tanks be color-coordinated with my property?
Absolutely. Colorbond water tanks can be customized to color match or contrast with your fence, shed, or external painted wall, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your property.
Is COLORBOND better than aluminium?
In many cases, a well-manufactured aluminium or steel fence tends to outlast a Colorbond fence, primarily due to the use of higher-quality materials. The durability of these materials contributes to the longevity and resilience of the fence structure. However, it’s essential to consider the cost factor. While Colorbond fencing may use more economical materials, resulting in a lower initial cost, the decision isn’t solely about expenses.

When choosing between COLORBOND and aluminium, it’s crucial to weigh the benefits of each material against your specific needs. While premium fencing materials may offer extended longevity, Colorbond fences provide a cost-effective alternative without compromising significantly on quality. Consider factors such as budget, aesthetic preferences, and the intended lifespan of the fence to make an informed decision based on your unique requirements.

Is COLORBOND safe for drinking water?
Yes, COLORBOND is safe for drinking water. COLORBOND tanks, particularly those crafted with AQUAPLATE® material by Bluescope Steel, adhere to stringent safety standards. The AQUAPLATE® lining ensures that the water remains uncontaminated, as it prevents direct contact between the steel and the stored water.

COLORBOND tanks are designed to meet or exceed the necessary regulations for water storage. The use of high-quality materials and the application of food-grade polymer lining contribute to the safety of the water stored in COLORBOND tanks. As a result, you can confidently utilize COLORBOND water tanks for storing drinking water without any concerns about water safety.

Is Colorbond bal rated?

Yes, Colorbond Steel is BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) rated, making it one of the preferred roof cladding products in Australia. It complies with all the necessary requirements for building in bushfire-prone zones, including ratings up to BAL 40 and BAL FZ (Flame Zone).

This indicates that Colorbond Steel is designed to withstand different levels of bushfire attack, providing homeowners in such areas with a reliable and resilient roofing solution. The wide range of available colors adds an aesthetic appeal to this safety feature, making Colorbond an excellent choice for properties in bushfire-prone regions.

Does vinegar damage COLORBOND?
No, vinegar does not damage COLORBOND. In fact, a vinegar solution is a popular and cost-effective cleaning method for COLORBOND steel. By mixing equal parts of white vinegar and water, you can create a gentle cleaning solution that effectively removes dirt and grime without causing any harm to the COLORBOND steel.

This method offers a safe and efficient way to maintain the cleanliness of COLORBOND surfaces without the risk of damage. So, feel free to use a vinegar solution for cleaning, ensuring your COLORBOND retains its aesthetic appeal without compromising its integrity.

Can the tanks be made to be fire-fighting compliant?

Yes we can fit the tanks with the required fittings to make them firefighting compliant,  with a Storz fitting for NSW or the Camlock for Qld.

One particularly efficient tank we can build is where the normal outlet system is built a certain distance up the side of the tank so that you always have 10,000 litres in the bottom section of the tank in case of fires, while still using the water in the top of the tank for normal use.

Can additional fittings be added to Colorbond water tanks?

Certainly. Select Water Tanks offers the option to add extra fittings such as firefighting fittings, bucket height taps, and additional outlets and ball valves to tailor the tank to your specific needs.
