This heavy duty fish tank stand is built to last and is made entirely from USA made structural steel, and is hand welded here in our Wauconda, IL shop. These stands are designed, and made to prevent interference of the pumps, and any other components placed inside the frame, yet still offering the tank plenty of support. The stands are not just made to hold the weight of the tank, but to hold the weight without deflecting more than 1/16″ over an 8′ span. Metal stands offer significantly superior qualities compared to wood stands, as wood can swell, warp, sag, and eventually fail after prolonged exposure to moisture.
All of our builds are run through a structural analysis program to predict how the stand will handle the weight to ensure the stand will be suitable for your application. The stands include a painted finish of any color. Powder coating can be added for an additional upcharge, and is based on the size of the stand (typically $80-$200 additional charge).
Wall thickness and material size are based off the size of the tank as well as the dimensions of the stand. Please rest assured, these stands will hold the weight of your tank! We have many of these stands currently in use, several holding up 600+ gallon tanks.
Smaller stands will ship via UPS, larger stands will ship via freight carrier.
If you have any custom requests or specific requirements for your application, please reach out to us prior to placing the order.
