Drive Through Spill Berm Information
As mentioned above, the design of the drive through berm uses aluminum angles along the side walls and self-rising foam on the two ends. Angle walls will sit standard at a wall height of one foot (1 ft), while foam walls will slowly rise to one foot if the areas fills with liquid. This allows the containment berm to self-adjust as required for your location.
Installation for these berms will be similar to the aluminum angle berm, requiring placement and installation of angles along the side wall. All angles use an L-bracket design that slides underneath and along the side wall of the berm. Each wall using these brackets will feature built-in pockets to hold the angle during storage.
Drive Through Berm Applications:
- Spill Responses
- Emergency Leaks & Spills
- Military Operations
- Truck, Tanker & Vehicle Containment
- Homeland Security
- Tank Containment
Similar to our other drive through options, these multi-purpose berms are able to quickly move items in and out of the containment area. This provides locations with a quick option for getting their trucks, machinery or other vehicles contained. All berms feature a fabric that is rated to handle short-contact with specific liquids. Depending on the concentration and makeup of your liquid, different fabrics may be able to work better than others for your site.
Aluminum Angle Spill Berms: The aluminum angle berm is our most rigid containment structure and is designed for containment around vehicles, tanks, and more. Features aluminum angle brackets that are inserted into the sides of berms
Foam Wall Berms: The foam wall berm is an easy way to catch small leaks and spills that occur while working on or with various vehicles and machinery. These berms can be quickly placed in needed locations to contain your spills.
In order to provide you with a complete containment system, several additional secondary spill containment products are offered including pop up containment pools, containment tanks, and spill basins. Please click on a link below to find the secondary containment you require:
Regardless of which product you use for your location, these containment items are designed to help keep sites in compliance with local or federal regulations for hazardous material storage.
