Aluminum Angle Walls

aluminum angle spill bermAluminum Angle Wall Models are a favorite for storage items that require long-term stationary storage. Offering an increased containment capacity (typical wall height of 1 ft.), these units are able to effectively contain large amounts of liquid in a single model. This is perfect for large tanks or liquid storage units.


Foam Walls

foam wall containment bermOffering a lower standard wall height (typically around 4"), the Foam Wall Berms are often chosen for areas that require a drive-through ability on and off of the unit. Foam wall models are designed to allow vehicles or machinery to drive directly over the entrance walls of berm. As they move over the walls, the foam wall indent and then pop back up, making entering and exiting the berm a fast and easy process.

Some of the most common secondary containment applications for this product include:

  • Tank Storage & Containment
  • Secondary Containment for Drums
  • Barriers for Large Tanks & Vehicles
  • Military Containment
  • Secondary Containment for Fracking, Mining, and & Gas Industries
  • Decontamination Pools (both oil and HAZMAT)
  • Emergency Response to Industrial Incidents
  • Frac Tank Containment


Erosion Control

A variety of natural and man-made materials are used for erosion control construction including earth, rock, concrete, coir and geotextiles. The materials are typically used in conjunction with one another to provide optimal stability.
