Unique Pioneer V-LOCK®

Engineered for Durability

The more elaborate a profile, the stronger you make a sheet of steel.

Think about the motor car and the shapes and styles car manufacturers use to produce the vehicle body.

A car’s body panels could be completely flat, but manufacturers introduce curves and profiles to improve the strength of their cars.

Saving Your Tank Liner

A feat of engineering excellence, the Pioneer V-Lock wall profile provides superior internal support for the tank liner.

Liner Damage in Other Tanks

In other tanks, the liner is stretched into the deep corrugations in the tank wall during every water level cycle.

Over time, the stresses caused by the water pressure and continual cycling lead to the mechanical failure of the liner.

The Superior V-Lock Design

The Pioneer V-Lock profile has much flatter corrugations. As such, when the liner is pressed up against these flatter sections during water cycling, it is unable to be flexed and stressed to the same degree.

This means that thanks to the V-Lock, the liner – like the rest of the tank – is able to last longer.

Available in a Variety of Colours

All Pioneer Water Tanks are manufactured using genuine ZINCALUME® or COLORBOND® steel,
ensuring that your water tank retains its look for longer.
