We custom design and manufacture every PolySide® plastic fire water tank to maximize the water you carry to a fire. In addition, the design of the UPF PolySide® incorporates configurations to allow for more equipment on the scene. The sidewalls, of the wetside poly water tank, are its outer walls of the tanker fire truck. Thus, allowing every cubic inch to be dedicated to carrying water. In addition, the tank bolts directly to your subframe. Equipment (e.g. Portable tanks, ladders, suction hoses, etc.) can be integrated into the tank design or mounted directly to the tank sides.
Moreover, another important feature is that UPF’s PolySide fire water tank is fully baffled and complies with NFPA guidelines, an assurance of excellent road handling performance.
The PolySide® fire water tank is lighter and allows you to carry more water than a typical steel tanker fire truck. You can carry up to 2,000 gallons of water on an economical single axle chassis. In addition, you gain the advantage of a non-corrosive tank for your tanker fire truck that will never rust and is covered by the Poly-Tank® warranty.
Polypropylene offers a great number of advantages, many of which allow it to be used for a wide variety of different products and services.
