PIONEER WATER TANKS ROOF SYSTEM
Pioneer’s innovative truss foot connection system allows a flush, strong bolted connection with the tank wall. The result is a direct load transfer from the roof structure to the tank wall, and then to the ground.
The roof structure utilizes the strength of square hollow sectors, fully welded and post-galvanized to build a strong, robust structure that performs in harsh conditions.
EXCLUSIVE PIONEER WATER TANKS HEAVY-DUTY ROOF SYSTEM
Pioneer Water Tanks have invested extensive development of the roof structure that is not only easy to install but stronger and adaptable for most applications. The dome roof structures are carefully engineered to achieve load paths of uniform capacity to maximize cost efficiencies. Pioneer Water Tanks maintain a low-profile with the dome structure while preventing water accumulation on the roof.
The Pioneer Water Tanks roof system is comprised of SHS, square hollow sections, tube members fabricated into welded roof trusses with swivel truss feet to enable a secure alignment with the tank wall. The SHS trusses are high strength, high ductility and are engineered to provide direct load paths for all loads that are incident to the roof into the tank wall.
Swivel Foot Connectors
The exclusive heavy-duty Pioneer Water Tank roof connects to the tank body through a unique swivel foot roof connector and high-tensile bolts. The connections offer safe and reliable load resistance. The tie-down connection system of the roof means not worrying about the performance of your tank roof, in even the most extreme of conditions.
HEAVY DUTY AND CYCLONIC ROOF OPTIONS
The heavy-duty roof options are designed in accordance with the relevant clauses of AS1170.0, AS1170.1, and AS1170.2 to withstand minimum regional winds of up to 141 feet per second. Embodying the features of the industry standard roof design, the heavy-duty roof option is capable of handling heavier loads arising from larger platforms and handrails.
The heavy-duty roof has been structurally designed to enable mounting of ancillary features such as a vent hatch on one side of the roof diametrically opposite the access hatch.
The cyclonic roof designs are for 213 feet per second, and or 269 feet. Engineering packages depend on the tank project, local authority requirements and tank application.
The cyclonic roof options embody the features of the heavy-duty roof design with roof trusses of greater depth and closer spacing to withstand the higher wind velocities expected in cyclonic areas.

Some larger capacity and or taller wall height Pioneer Water Tank installations may require the proprietary jacking system.
Prior to starting construction with the proprietary jacking system, the following important points must be given consideration.
• Everyone who is involved in the building of the tank must be given through instructions on their responsibilities regarding the construction and safe working practices.
• The ring beam must be constructed to Pioneer Water Tanks specifications and has it been allowed to cure fully before starting construction.
• Tanks should never be built in very windy conditions, as this will increase the potential for personal injury and damage to components and equipment.
• If you are stopping work because of strong winds make sure that all loose items are secured.
• The jack base plates must be fully supported on the ring beam and not overhang the edge of the concrete.
• Check that the mechanical anchors are installed as per the instructions supplied and have been fully tightened before operating the jacking system.
• Only the specified grade (8.8) bolts are to be used to connect the lifting brackets to the tank wall.
• Tanks should never be left supported on jacks at the end of a shift. Tanks must be lowered down onto the ring beam, although it is advisable to keep some tension on the winch cables to give added stability to the tank wall.
