Folding Frame Tank Design Details

Folding frame tank design includes an interior liner safe for potable water (drinking water). Other liner options can be chosen based on the type of liquid you intend to store in the tank. Folding frame tanks are typically constructed from a lightweight aluminum material but can also be made from steel. During transportation, these collapsible tanks can be easily folded up for compact transport in fire trucks or other emergency vehicles. With a compact exterior and reliable inner liner, frame tanks are the perfect solution for your water storage needs.

Folding frame tanks come with a rigid outer frame and a flexible inner liner made with different fabrics, depending on your applications. The outer frame is made from welded aluminum or steel. The inner liner comes in 22 oz. High Performance Rubber (HPR), 22 oz. Vinyl (red, yellow, orange, black, or blue), or 28 oz. Vinyl (red, yellow, orange, black, or blue). You can also order 22 oz. sides with 28 oz. floor. The complete SLT (Single Lane Tank) system includes:

  • 2-8'x14'x29″ tanks (Other rectangular sizes available soon)
  • Mounting plate with 1 – female swivel and flange for the outside and 1-male flange for the inside of the tank. Size 4″ – 6″ (The plate helps to stabilize your flange.)
  • Standard 6″ al mag casting 90° elbow or optional 6″ tubing 90° elbow. (Call for pricing)
