It was more than 57 years ago that the first Fol-Da-Tank was introduced to firefighters, who recognized it's value and quality immediately.  In fact, the quality was so good, many of these original models are still on the job, performing like new.  Two men can unload the Fol-Da-Tank from the truck and set up in less than 30 seconds.  While the pumper empties the Fol-Da-Tank, a tanker can be bringing more water.  Fol-Da-Tank has proven to be the practical answer as an extra water supply for rural areas where water pressure is low, or as a back-up facility for municipal fire departments. Fol-Da-Tanks come standard with grab handles and hinge protectors with a pinch free design, (U.S. patent #7,938,291, Canadian patent #2624553) to help firefighters when folding the tank. Grab handles can be placed on the bottom side walls or floor of the liner to eliminate any snagging of Low-Level strainers or hoses.  Fol-Da-Tanks are also a great resource for oil spill containment and oil spill clean up.

HPR is a formulated fabric made specifically for the Fol-Da-Tank Company with proprietary rights, unlike other companies that put fancy trademark names on an existing fabric.  Fol-Da-Tank has tested the new HPR® fabric in the cold climates of Alaska, to the extreme hot desert of the Middle East for over 5 years.  HPR® (High Performance Rubber) has been designed with UV, heat and puncture resistance, along with abrasion and cold cracking (-60° F) qualities.  Fol-Da-Tank® Company guarantees this fabric with a "LIFETIME WARRANTY" on the hot air or R.F. (Dielectric Radio Frequency) heat sealed seams!  (Call for further information)  The HPR® formulation allows Fol-Da-Tank to offer the best fabric on the market today.  HPR® is used in our standard folding frame tanks, our flexible pillow style tanks, self-supporting onion style tanks and secondary containment berms.  The possibilities are endless!   When choosing a superior liner fabric, Fol-Da-Tank® Company offers the versatile HPR® fabric for all your liquid containment needs!
