One of Husky Portable Containment’s core products is our folding frame tanks and we are proud to announce we have received our second patent for our Portable Liquid Storage Tank with floor-mounted handles.
Patent No. 10,518,967, Dec 31st 2019, along with Patent No. 8,746,478, June 10th 2014, provides us with complete protection on our revolutionary invention, “Easy Lift Handles”. These handles are dielectrically welded to our folding frame tank liners and provide firefighters with the ability to remove standing water during tear down procedures and they also help fold their tanks with ease by having centre-mounted handles in a zig-zag pattern. See images. Firefighters from all over the country have had an initial response saying, “Why hasn’t someone thought of this years ago?” Husky’s design team puts in tremendous efforts in designing new products and new features for our current product line.
Standard folding frame tanks over the last 50 plus years have had a fabric chute or drain sleeve that was tied to the top rail of the frame. This would be untied to release the drain sleeve and in turn, drain the tank. Unfortunately, these could unintentionally come undone and release all the water in the tank during the firefighting process. Not good. Husky changed that back in 2007 with a quick-release drain that has a heavy-duty webbing and stainless steel buckle system that clips to the inside of the liner. The drain sleeve actually drapes over the top rail of the frame virtually eliminating any issues and releases the drain sleeve with one push of the buckle. In 2013 we went a step further and invented our Quick Dump drain system. This is a drop-down framed door that is incorporated into the sidewall of the tank’s frame and liner. Release the two d-rings and latch and the door slowly drops down draining your tank in a fraction of the time. This option has become very popular. We received Patent No. 8,733,579 for this invention on May 27 th 2014.
