The Steel Advantage

Steel: The Material of Choice - Superior Structural Strength

The Steel Advantage - Steel is the material of choice at Highland Tank because of its many advantages, and it should be yours too. As a construction material, steel is strong, affordable, reliable and environmentally friendly. Steel’s unique combination of properties and characteristics enable it to achieve performance levels required in today's storage tanks.

Specified for Strength - We buy steel according to our own strict guidelines and meeting rigid ASTM specifications. Our fine-grain mild-carbon steel provides superior toughness and surface quality that offers both weldability and improved corrosion resistance. The time-tested strength and performance of steel remains unparalleled.

Steel’s structural integrity can withstand extreme weather conditions or natural disasters. State-of-the-art fabrication technology, welding, linings and coatings reinforce the durability of Highland’s mild carbon and stainless steel products.

Environmental Benefits - Steel is 100% recyclable and has the highest recycling rate of any durable material in the United States. Unlike concrete or plastic storage tanks, even those reinforced with fiberglass, recycled steel storage tanks ultimately keep a valuable commodity out of the nation’s landfills. In addition, the latest recycling processes drastically reduce industrial emissions by over 70% to air and water, accompanied by a reduction of approximately 30% in the amount of energy required to produce new steel. Highland Tank products will form an integral part of your “green” building.
