Oversize Aquariums

Aquariums with capacities of tens and hundreds of thousands of liters

We engineer and manufacture large size aquariums of unlimited dimensions and capacity. Tanks, whose formation is a complex technological process and the choice of implemented solutions is determined by a number of factors analyzed by our team based on customer requirements. Before proceeding this type of investment we are considering concepts from architecture, building engineering, window technology, usability and later life – aquarium biology. We have logistic facilities and a team of specialists ready to meet the biggest challenges. In general, the construction of large tanks is based on three types of construction:

  • Fully acrylic aquarium
  • Aquarium in steel frame
  • Aquarium with reinforced concrete skeleton

Fully acrylic aquarium

Fully acrylic aquariums are by far the most visually appealing ones. They do not have optically heavy reinforcements and wall connections are practically invisible. However, they require the use of PMMA with significant thickness while the gluing process itself is time-consuming and complicated – it is necessary to use five-component polymerization glues or thermal polymerization. What results in a high price for the product.

Aquarium in steel frame

Aquarium in steel frame is a cheap and safe solution, which allows quick realization. Steel covering the PMMA panels allows using thinner material, and therefore reduces the weight of the tank and its cost. The frame also protects edges of the tank against damage, however visually is unattractive.

Aquarium with reinforced concrete skeleton

Aquarium in steel frame is a cheap and safe solution, which allows quick realization. Steel covering the PMMA panels allows using thinner material, and therefore reduces the weight of the tank and its cost. The frame also protects edges of the tank against damage, however visually is unattractive.

Using this technology to build aquariums is a solution which allows the realization of thanks with practically unlimited capacities. This solution consists of creating the main supporting structure from reinforced concrete (watertight) with high resistance to chemical corrosion, followed by waterproofing of the pmma panels as a translucent surface. This kind of solution is most often used to build the largest aquarium expositions – aquariums. Implementation of this type of tanks requires the engagement of specialists from many industries and is a technologically complex process.
