Bibow Industries, Inc. - the industry pioneer and
market leader in ergonomic tank carry handle and torch organizing equipment
announced today that they received U.S. Patent
for their vehicle Tank Holders:
Acetylene B-Tanks, MC-Tanks, Nitrogen Tanks, Oxygen Tanks - ALL industrial and
medical gases transported by vehicles.
are overjoyed that USPTO granted us another patent and we are grateful that
contractors and end users everywhere see the incredible value and safety in
another one of our products. Most notable are the reports we are hearing
from contractors that they are demanding their vehicle insurance companies
lower their insurance premiums by 20-30% since "RISK" of potential fire and
explosion hazards from transporting hazardous gases is greatly reduced" stated
Chris Bibow, Co-Founder. Continuing, "one contractor told us that they
bought and installed the B-Tank and Nitrogen tank holders, installed them,
inserted the takes, torqued down the RED "T" handles thereby locking the gas
cylinder or tank into the holder and then had their insurance agent stop by,
climb into his van and try to PULL the tank out of the holder... Impossible...
The agent realized how big and strong and safe the tank holders where, and the
added safety of the T handle to lock down and in the tanks. Needless
to say, RISK was greatly reduced, and vehicle insurance premium needed to
reflect this fact. A great story. Adding, "we believe that D.O.T,
O.S.H.A and Highway Transportation board and HighWay Safety Commissions
should demand that our patented vehicle gas tank holders be the "industry safety
standard" and law throughout the United States because if how much risk this
product reduce and how much safer ALL drivers would be... It's NOT just
about the safety of the contractor or the worker or the person driving the
truck, van or service vehicle, or the business owner looking to reduce their
risk, - but it's about the safety of the other cars, their drivers and their
passengers in those vehicles" - explained Chris. "I have a family and
children and I think about their safety and about how I see industry problems
and what I can do to solve them for the betterment of everyone, just like we did
with patented tank carry handles and patented gas regulators with tank carry
handle technology. Hopefully, for the sake of our safety, our children's'
transportation safety we can get our patented tank holders to become national
Bibow Industries, Inc. - the industry pioneer and market leader in ergonomic
tank carry handle and torch organizing equipment announced today their NEW Ultimate
B-Tank Holders (PATENT PENDING) - specifically built for all
Christopher Bibow, Co-Founder of Bibow Industries explained:
"we spoke with dozens and dozens of contractors during our R&D process
about their vehicle tank-holder needs. After reviewing the data, all the notes,
the same key issues kept appearing. No manufacturer offered a robust,
ultra-strong, full featured, integrated tank holder system that offered both
stand alone and multi-tank repositories "holders" with limited attachment holes
(without compromising safety) - to prevent excessive hole drilling in trucks,
vans, and the other service vehicles. Chris continued to explain, "we made
these new tank holders entirely out of 3/16" or 1/4" thick steel, over welded
it, and went with the best paint on the market RUST-OLEUM®!
Contactors kept complaining about how the current tank holders were all made out
of cheap, very thin steel 1/16" or so and that they would not hold up from daily
use and would wear out and break, especially at the holder attachment points -
usually the feet of the holders..." Continuing "contractors also
complained that the current holders on the market would rust from wear and tear
and could not be easily maintained and/or color-matched and painted. We
heard the market loudly!" The answer: 3/16" or 1/4" steel plate, make it
last and super safe... and use the best rust resistant paint on the market
RUST-OLEUM®, that is widely available at any HomeDepot®, Lowe's® or Box
warehouse, Hardware store... so contractors could easily respray or touch up any
scratches or scrapes that come with use... Chris louded stated, "let's
fact it, the tank holders get the hell beat out of them by the tanks, they need
to last, they need to be SAFE and easy to maintain!" "In our
engineering processes, we also solved contractors fears if their trucks ever
tipped over or fell over.... that the tank would not fall out of the holders...
and other industrial gases are explosive and cause fear in the back of
contractor's minds, we wanted a system to allow contractors to quickly secure
the tanks to the sidewalls of the tank holders as soon as they placed them in
the holders.. The integrated
locking T handles allow contractors to quickly add enough pressure to lock the gas
cylinder (B-Tank, MC-Tank Nitrogen Tank) into the holder(s) so they cannot fall out.
Lastly, we thought that marine grade
stainless steel through-bolts or high chrome steel bolts with large fender washers and aircraft grade
nylon nuts would round out the tank holders securement systems!
Contractors are already asking their vehicle insurance agents for premium
reductions because of RISK being lessened with the proper installment and use of
the tank holders.
