Sherwin Launches Online Water Tank Designer


Earlier this week, Sherwin-Williams Protective and Marine unveiled its new online tool for conceptualizing, visualizing and optimizing water storage tank coating projects. The Water Tank Color Designer offers eight different tank styles, a customizable color scheme, the ability to add text and upload a custom logo.

“We wanted to create a comprehensive tool that engineers, contractors and applicators can all use to accurately and creatively design water storage tank projects,” said Bryan Draga, Global Vice President – Marketing, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine.

“With our best-in-industry technology and an unequaled array of capabilities, the Water Tank Color Designer helps our customers bring their visions into reality and makes it easier to share designs for approval from everyone involved.”

According to the company’s emailed release, Water Tank Color Designer presents an array of customizable options, including tank styles, paint colors, logos, icons and fonts. Users can also create multi-color designs, with different colors for various areas of the tank, including the top, bottom and legs.

“We’re providing eight different tank styles, including ground storage, standpipe, legged, spheroid, hydropillar, hydrotank, cone roof and composite,” said Draga. “And there’s access to any of the Sherwin-Williams Color System 4000 Series industrial colors, as well as the most popular exterior tank colors, to find just the right one. Users can also add in their own messaging and imagery, so the possibilities are virtually limitless.”

Using the visualization tool, users can reportedly select the appropriate environment for showcasing their tank design, such as a city skyline or field. The virtual tank is also fully rotatable, allowing users to view their design from all angles.

Users receive a link to their completed project to be accessed, shared or updated. Additionally, Sherwin reports that the Water Tank Color Designer provides direct contact to the Sherwin-Williams Protective and Marine team for support and to help bring the project design to reality.

A video tutorial for the tool can be found on the Water Tank Color Designer homepage.
