New Features and Accessories from Striem
A friendly product update from the folks at Striem…
We've made several updates over the past year to our large horizontal series of tanks, which we often just call "our big tanks." They encompass tanks that are 750 gallons and larger within the OS, NT, and BB series. Below are a few updates.
HDK-1 Hold Down Kit
We now offer a hold down kit for these tanks. We've received more and more requests from contractors about where to source them, so we decided to be the source. The HDK-1 includes (8) turnbuckles and (4) nylon straps. Concrete deadmen and anchors are by others.
The HDK-1 product page can be found here.
Lifting Lug Kit
The Lifting Lug Kit has shipped standard with these tanks since October 2017. It used to ship in a small box on top of one of the covers. One day, that little box got lost in transit on its way to Northern Virginia. Michael Duke at Virginia Marketing suggested we install the LLK at the factory. So we've started doing that.
Big tanks are not exactly easy to ship. In July 2018, we received a few photos of an OS-1000 that appeared to have tipped over in transit. We thought, "Hmm, that shouldn't happen anymore."
So, we tasked our Engineering and Workshop teams to make sure we put an end to it. They developed a cross-hatch foot design that is placed at four points on the tank. Each foot has anchor holes in it for pallet strapping. Now, each big tank is strapped down at a low center of gravity at four points.
