Rhino Water Tanks specialize in the manufacture of corrugated water tanks.
Engineered and manufactured to meet all International Tank Standards, all Rhino Water Tanks are ideal for fire water storage, potable water, mine sites, water treatment plants or any project that requires large capacity water storage.
Tanks range in size from 26,000 litres to a 2.1 million litres and are available in Zincalume or the full range of available colours.
All corrugated wall sheets are rolled from galvanised steel and roof trusses are hot dipped galvanised for durability. Rhino's industrial strength reinforced Metallocene coated liners are UV treated, making them ideal for applications without a roof and can be used for a range of liquids including high or low pH and recycled water.
Rhino Water Tanks are available in a variety of standard sizes or can be custom designed to meet specific customer or project requirements.
Our range of Water tanks are available in 5 height specifications as shown below.

Manufacturing to International Standards
All components of Rhino Water Tanks comply with and surpass all applicable International and Industry Standards. The design of all Rhino Water Tanks is certified by the renowned Van Der Meer engineering consultants.
The corrugated range of tanks are manufactured from Zincalume steel. The wall structure is composed of corrugated Blue-Orb sheeting that is rolled and curved by our custom-made rollforming equipment. The corrugated profile provides increased wall strength and durability.
All Rhino Commercial Tanks can be specifically engineered for cyclonic regions in accordance with Australian Standards for wind loads AS/NZS1170:2007 (Structural Design Action).
The roof structures of all Rhino Commercial Tanks carry dead and live loads in accordance with AS/NZS 1170:2007 (Structural Design Actions).
Rhino Water Tanks sources and supplies high tensile corrugated Custom-Orb sheeting used in the roof of all corrugated tanks. The roof truss system uses Square Hollow Section top cord with structural angle and flat bar plate components to complement a tank designed for all climatic conditions. All trusses are Hot Dipped Galvanised.
Certified design is in accordance with AS 4100 (Steel Structures) and AS/NZS 4600 (Cold Formed Steel Structures).
All welding and other manufacturing involved in the production of Rhino Tanks is in accordance with AS/NZS 1554:2008 (Structural Steel Welding).
All structural components of the Rhino Commercial Tank are hot dipped galvanized to meet AS/NZS 4680:2006 (Hot Dip Galvanized [Zinc] Coatings on Fabricated Ferrous Articles). Every Rhino Water Tank installed uses Sacrificial Magnesium Anodes that are engineered to AS 2239 alloy M3 analysis & performance standard.
The Zinc or Galvanized coating on any steel gives some cathodic protection; however, this protection is limited. The use of Sacrificial Anodes becomes the first defence against corrosion and the Galvanized or Zinc coating on the wall sheets become the second defence. Correct installation and our regular maintenance program are therefore imperative to maximise your tank longevity and design life.
Generally, nozzles used on Rhino Commercial Tanks are manufactured from PE80 HDPE or hot dipped galvanized steel. HDPE fittings are manufactured from PE complying with AS/NZS 4130:2003 and fabricated in accordance with PMBWELD301A.
Nozzles used may be project specific depending on requirements. Larger outlet sizes and other fittings such as Cam Lock, Stortz, CFA and CFS fire couplings can also be provided if required.
Platforms & Ladders
All Platforms and caged ladders on or around Rhino Commercial Tanks are manufactured in accordance with AS 1657-1992 (Fixed Platforms, Walkways, Stairways and Ladders).
Rhino Tank Colours
Rhino Water Tanks can be supplied in Zincalume, Galvanised or a full range of colours as displayed in the chart below. Click on a swatch to see the Rhino change its colour.
Disclaimer: Some colours may not be available in your country.
Ring Beam Preparation
All commercial water storage tanks require construction on a concrete ring beam footing. It is imperative for the client to ensure foundations and civil works for the site are adequate. Ring beam design is dependent on tank size and location. Appropriate design specification drawings are supplied by Rhino at the time of order.
Rhino Water Tanks has a network of specially trained tank installers. Our installers focus on quality and excellent service to ensure the job is manufactured, supplied and installed to the customer’s specific requirements.
All Rhino tanks are transported to site in flat pack form and then assembled on site. This allows us to position the fittings to the customer’s individual requirements and gives us the ability to install tanks on sites with reduced accessibility. Our Flat Panel tanks are assembled with the use of cranes as demonstrated in these photos.
