Husky has been awarded a patent for our Easy LIft Handles

Husky Portable Containment is pleased to announce we have been awarded “US Patent No. 8,746,478” with other patents pending for our Portable Liquid Storage Tank with our “Easy Lift Handle” invention. 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 we designed our “Easy Lift Handles” to make your job easier. They come standard on every folding frame tank we make, and you can be sure we craft each handle with the same attention to quality that you’ve come to expect from Husky. We are proud of our patented “Easy Lift Handles”, and we hope you’ll check out this high quality product.
