Husky Gets Patents For Folding Tank Improvements

Husky Portable Containment is pleased to announce the company has been awarded “US Patent No. 8,746,478” with other patents pending for our “Easy Lift Handles” mounted on the floor of our tanks invention. It also got a patent for its quick dump.

Owner, Jay Claeys states, “Our Company’s core product is our folding frame water tanks for firefighting. When I started Husky, I knew we needed to innovate and improve on the almost-50-year-old design of the folding frame tank. In January 2005, with a little trial and error, I came up with the design for our “Easy Lift Handles”. I believe this invention is second in importance only to the folding frame tank itself.”

David Hatfield, Retired Fire Chief of Perry Fire Department, agrees and calls our Easy Lift Handles “one of the best innovations for drop tanks that I have come across.”

Husky Portable Containment knows you work hard, and the company designed its “Easy Lift Handles” to make your job easier. Husky's handles make our tanks the easiest and quickest to fold and permits removal of standing water. They come standard on every folding frame tank it makes, and you can be sure the company crafts each handle with the same attention to quality that you’ve come to expect from Husky.

Husky’s second Patent awarded is for its Quick Dump “US Patent No. 8,733,579” The Quick Dump is the answer to get your folding frame tanks emptied quickly when the fire scene is in its tear down stages.

Just release the latch and watch your tank drain in about 20 seconds. Husky continues to set the bar for the folding frame tank and related industry. The company's design teams’ effort towards new innovations in the water shuttle arena of products is ongoing and never ending. We listen to our customers and bring forth the easiest to use, most durable and safest products on the market today.
