Foam Wall Spill Berms
Drive Through Spill Containment Berms
Foam wall spill berms are a low-profile secondary containment system built to accommodate equipment and vehicles on a job site. With robust, drive over walls, these spill 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. Foam wall spill berms can also be used for stationary equipment such as dumpsters, tanks, and machinery.

Foam Wall Spill Containment Berm Information
Similar to other spill 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 containment berm, length of storage and outside conditions.
Due to the low profile nature of foam wall models, these containment 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 foam wall 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.
