Centaur Folding Tanks: The Best of Both Worlds

The strong outer frame of this portable tank supports large volumes of liquid, while its hinged design and interior liner allows the frame tank to fold flat and fit into storage areas on fire trucks.

Folding frame tanks feature a sturdy outer frame and interior liner. All liners can be built from a wide range of fabrics, including FDA and NSF 61 approved materials for the safe storage of potable water. These collapsible tanks fold flat for storage, and are ready to use at any time.
