Tank Ground Cloth
Ground Underlayment for Flexible Tanks
The flexible tank ground cloth is an economical way to protect the bottom of your tank from abrasion during storage and use. Fabrics used to manufacture these liners include high resistance impermeable materials, such as PVC and vinyl. Depending on your location, a geotextile liner may also be used to help with further abrasion or heat protection.

Ground Cloth Specifications
Sizing – The ground cloth is custom made with most lengths and widths available to fit the dimensions of your tank or storage area. For pillow tanks, we recommend an oversized perimeter with at least one foot of additional material in each direction.
Materials – A standard ground liner is constructed of either PVC or vinyl fabric. Depending on the weight of the tank and liquid stored, GEI Works offers a number of fabric weights: 10, 18, 22, and 33 ounces. Geotextile liners are also an option for particular situations and flexible tank designs.
Ground Liner Installation
Installation of the ground cloth should be done after the tank area has been prepared for placement and prior to placement of the tank. Please read through the standard tank installation instructions:

- Unroll or unfold the tank.
