Have you ever ordered an aquarium for a client and when it arrived it was not as expected?
At Titan Composites, we do not start the manufacturing process on your custom acrylic aquarium, tanks and stands until we have your full approval. Even with the smallest of orders, you will receive CAD drawings of your aquarium and/or stand to ensure that it is built exactly as you expected. Our drawings and plans include placement of overflows, plumbing details, top opening placement and sizes. Whether you are a hotel, zoo, museum or large commercial aquarium every detail and measurement is assured to be correct for when the delivery shows up to the jobsite.
Fiberglass aquariums, also called FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) are lighter, bulletproof, available in any color, and cost effective for large aquariums.
With a Titan Composites fiberglass aquarium, you can choose between glass or acrylic viewing windows depending on the requirements of your aquarium’s inhabitants.
Due to shipping restrictions or difficult onsite access, large aquariums may need to be delivered in multiple pieces. Fiberglass tanks offer more cost effective onsite assembly than acrylic and are more convenient than an onsite concrete build and pour.
Properly cared for, an FRP tank will last virtually forever vs. concrete tanks that will eventually crack and need resealed.
Fiberglass vs Concrete
When building similar sizes, FRP tanks have advantages over concrete tanks:
Every project is different, but fiberglass is more cost-effective than concrete for most shapes and sizes
The convenience of a single supplier rather than multiple subcontractors, e.g., steel/iron workers, concrete suppliers, sand blasting services, and waterproofing services
When your site is ready for your Titan Composites aquarium, fiberglass offers what we like to call “plug & play”. It is dropped in, filled it with water, and you are ready to go. No time wasted or waiting for concrete or epoxy waterproofing to cure.
