Foam Wall Berms
Drive-Over Secondary Containment: Foam Wall Spill Berms
Foam Wall Spill Berms are a low-profile spill containment liner built to accommodate equipment and vehicles on a job site. With robust, drive over walls, these berms allow items to be immediately moved into a containment area during use, fuel transfer, cleaning, draining, or other activities where there is a high potential for leaks or spills. Berms can also be used for stationary equipment such as dumpsters, tanks, and machinery.

Foam Spill Berm Information
Similar to other containment berms, foam wall models are built from your choice of either a PVC, Urethane, XR-5/Elvaloy/Equivalent liner. Each fabric is chosen based on the type of liquid being stored on the berm, length of storage and outside conditions. If you are not sure which liner will be best for your location, please do not hesitate to contact us at 772-646-0597.
Due to the low profile nature of foam wall models, these berms are often used in combination with several spill accessories including tread guards (shown in yellow above) and ground pads. These accessories work to provide an extra layer of strength on top and below the berm to help protect against abrasion and heat. All tread guards are designed as removable fabric, allowing them to be placed at widths that match the widths of your tires.
Foam Berm Applications:
