Standard Folding Frame Water Tanks


In a hurry? Husky offers fast lead times on most products!

Husky's® port-a-tank liners are designed so there are no bulky corners or sagging liner. Our manufacturing process (patent pending) allows us to use one continuous piece of material for the side panel, which is then welded to our Husky®-duty floor material. We also install solid brass grommets in a tight pattern, alleviating any liner drooping at the frame. These features create the best fitting, most durable liner available.

For the Youngest Rookie to the Most Skilled Veteran Firefighters
Husky's Folding Frame Tanks were voted the Easiest & Safest Tanks to use.
