Fol-Da-Tank News

OVER THE YEARS FOL-DA-TANK COMPANY HAS LISTENED TO FIREFIGHTERS NEEDS TO HELP IMPROVE FIREFIGHTING.  THE FOL-DA-TANK® PATENTED IN 1954 WAS THE FIRST OF MANY PRODUCTS THAT HAVE SET THE STANDARDS FOR IMPROVING FIREFIGHTING TECHNIQUES.  NOW, FOL-DA-TANK HAS LISTENED AGAIN!  WE HAVE DEVELOPED NEW LABOR SAVING AND SAFETY DESIGNS FOR OUR PORTABLE TANK.

  1. NEW HINGE PROTECTORS (CANADIAN PATENT #2624553, U.S. PATENT #7,938,291) "PINCH FREE" DESIGN ON FOL-DA-TANKS THAT DOES NOT AFFECT THE STRENGTH OF THE FRAME!
  2. NEW SIDE WALL MOUNTED LINER PICK UP HANDLES.  THE SIDE WALL MOUNTED PICK UP HANDLES WILL NOT INTERFER WITH WATER MOVEMENT APPLIANCES WHEN POSITIONING THEM (E.G. LOW-FLOW™ LOW-LEVEL STRAINER, HOSE OR POWER JET SIPHONS.
  3. NEWLY DESIGNED HEAVY DUTY FLOORS.  NOW AN OPTION ON ALL TANKS.
  4. A NEW DESIGN QUICK RELEASE DRAIN SLEEVE THAT IS ONLY OFFERED ON FOL-DA-TANKS.

THE FLOAT-DOCK® SELF-LEVELING FLOATING STRAINER IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHAT FIREFIGHTERS NEEDED TO HELP WITH WATER MOVEMENT.  THE FLOAT-DOCK® BASICALLY IS THE SAME PRINCIPAL, BUT WITH GREAT IMPROVMENTS.

  1. A NEW POLYETHELYNE FLOAT WITH HIGH VISABILITY ORANGE COLOR FOR THE FLOAT AND ALL ALUMINUM CASTINGS FOR THE STRAINER BARREL.
  2. A NEW SECURE-LOCK® LOCKING DEVISE FOR THE STRAINER BARREL.
  3. WE ALSO OFFER AN ALL ALUMINUM FLOATING STRAINER.
  4. WHEN USING THE NEWLY DESIGNED OPTIONAL RISER PLATE WITH THE FLOAT DOCK® STRAINER THE FLOATING STRAINER CAN BE USED AS A LOW-LEVEL STRAINER (TWO STRAINERS IN ONE)  IN A FOL-DA-TANK OR WHEN USING THE CONBINATION IN A CREEK OR POND WILL ALSO HELP IN LOW WATER SITUATIONS.
  5. THE DESIGN OF THE FLOAT ELIMINATES ANY NEED FOR A BULKY VORTEX PLATE.
  6. A TRUE LIVE HINGED SELF-LEVELING BARREL THAT CAN BE DETACHED AND USED AS A BARREL STRAINER 

FLYER TANKS

WE WERE ASKED TO DEVELOP A MORE HEAVY DUTY HARNESS SYSTEM FOR OUR 72 & 134 GALLON FLYER.  THE HARNESS PARTS ARE NOW RATED AT MORE THAN 3 TIMES THE WEIGHT OF THE BLIVET WHEN FILLED.  WE ONLY USE THE MOST ADVANCED CARGO RINGS, RIVETS, WEBBING AND MATERIAL FOR THIS TYPE OF TANK.

WHEN FIREFIGHTERS SEE A FOL-DA-TANK® PRODUCT THEY SEE ORIGINALITY AND QUALITY!

DON'T BE FOOLED BY CONFUSING MANUFACTURE "PATENT PENDING" CLAIMS.  VISIT WWW.USPTO.GOV FOR PATENT INFORMATION.  PATENTS ARE ISSUED ON TUESDAYS AND PATENT APPLICATIONS ARE ISSUED ON THURSDAYS.
