Containment Berms for Spill Protection & Compliance
Spill Berms are one of the fastest and most economical ways to store and contain hazardous materials on your site. Great for placement under tanks, machinery, vehicles and storage vessels, these berms are designed to lie flat under equipment to quickly contain materials in the event of spill. Models are available in drive through foam, self rising and aluminum angle models.
Spill containment berms are often used as an economical containment option for tanks, vehicles, 55 gallon drums, storage vessels, frac tanks and other large containment items. Berms are an ideal choice for additional precaution against spills and for Diesel Fuel Containment. As seen in the variety above, berms are available in several styles and fabrics to accommodate different storage requirements. All berms are primarily designed for ease of use and often include a storage bag and flexible liner for quick transport to your location.
Containment Wall Options
Secondary containment berms are offered with multiple wall options to meet different storage requirements. These can include drive over foam walls, high aluminum angle walls and air walls for secondary containment requirements. Some of the most popular wall options include the following:
- Aluminum Angle Walls: The aluminum angle wall berm is the perfect option for spill containment due to its high, rigid wall structure. Along the side walls of the berms, each wall will contain several pockets equipped to handle aluminum angle brackets. This helps to create a wall height of around one foot (1') or higher if needed in your location.
- Foam Walls: Another favorite for containment requirements is the foam wall berm. This berm features the same reliable liner, but instead features pockets for foam inserts. This creates walls that can be driven directly over without causing harm to your containment area.
Spill Containment Berm Materials
In addition to multiple wall options, spill berms can also be made from several different liner materials to meet different containment requirements. Typical liner fabrics include the following:
- 22 oz. or 36 oz. Reinforced PVC
- 40 mil LLDPE
- 30 oz. XR-5/Elvaloy (or equivalent)
- 32 oz. Polyurethane
These materials help to provide a high level of resistance to fuel, chemicals, water, oil, hydrocarbons, and more.
