Our aquarium services are being keenly sought after as we supply more ATL tanks for China market.
ATL has once again beaten off stiff competition to secure a tank supply contract for a major public aquarium project in mainland China. Aquarium displays of all shapes and sizes have been designed and built at ATL’s headquarters here in the UK. Using ATL’s prefabricated display tank system we have been able to produce exhibits to the highest possible quality and in record time. This latest batch of ATL tanks for China has now safely arrived on site. The aquarium consignments include small jewel tanks with acrylic viewing panels, full size cylinders with thermoformed 360 degree acrylic viewing, large blown acrylic hemisphere displays and stunning jellyfish exhibits.
ATL’s aquarium tanks are well known for their quality and reliability. Our in house team of specialists have been building high quality displays for many years and this has established ATL as the leaders in aquarium technology. Working closely with the client teams we constantly strive to create innovation with new display designs and R & D projects which in turn improves our manufacturing processes. We continue to produce a series of plug and play’favourites’. Tanks such as the kids only tunnel tanks are always a popular display in any public aquarium.
With every new project the expectations for the quality of the theming and tank décor rises. ATL is able to achieve tank theming of the highest possible quality. As well as an array of themed artefacts we cater for all of the normal aquarium backdrops including coral reefs, shipwrecks, fresh water banks, mangroves, roots and even impressive tree trunks. We recently hosted a delegation of overseas customers here at ATL. They could not believe the quality of our theming and that our tree trunks were not real. They were so impressed they placed additional orders for their project there on the spot it must be good!
Once the tanks are finished we routinely inspect before we hydrotest each unit for functionality. This ensures that everything that leaves our factory is of the expected quality. Once passed our tanks are meticulously wrapped and protected.
The ATL team carefully load each display into shipping containers and arrange export. This gives our clients the ability to receive tanks on site of the quality they expect, at an affordable price and within a timescale that’s difficult for other to match.
We are rightly proud of our team and their efforts that have ensured the continued use of ATL tanks for China aquarium projects. More details about this project can be viewed atOur success in the region continues and more news will follow soon.

ATL have recently completed the second phase installation of replacement glazing to the existing large freshwater displays in Bristol Zoo’s acclaimed aquarium. The company’s second operation to remove the badly scratched and over specified laminated glass viewing panels and replace them with new low iron laminated glass panels supported on polished stainless steel mullions was another logistically challenging job. With the very limited access available inside the operational aquarium ATL had to once again employ specialist materials handling equipment and techniques to remove and replace the large and very heavy panels.
The staggering improvement in display visibility, the overall impression of a much lighter display area and the clean modern look of the polished stainless steel mullions all blend to help create an exciting and memorable visit. Once again ATL’s experience in taking on and delivering challenging refurbishment projects give the owners and operators of existing aquariums and attractions an extremely cost effective route to improvement without major disruption or closure.
