Drive Through Berm for Vehicle Leaks
Drive Over Spill Containment Berms
Question: I am interested in secondary oil spill containment for both diesel fuel and oils. We need three units total. Two units would need to be a little more stationary, preferably drive through. One unit would be mobile and does not need to be drive through. I'm not sure if there is a standard size but the vehicles are 35 feet and 50 feet. The two secondary containment berms that would be stationary are needing to be 54 feet and also a 50 feet that is about 15 feet wide and 12 inches deep. The mobile unit would also be the larger 54 foot size. We recently had a visit from the EPA and have to get this moving quickly. A quote and all the information you can provide will be greatly appreciated as we will have to make a decision very soon!
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works with your inquiry. We can definitely help you with your Secondary Containment needs. Different berm models may be able to work better than others depending on what you are requiring in terms of mobility and storage.
Drive Through Spill Berms
Our Drive Through Spill Berms would be perfect for your stationary applications. Our drive over spill containment berms control pollution by providing a barrier between the containment or leak and the environment, ensuring your project stays in compliance with EPA Secondary Containment regulations.
We offer different models with varying sides: aluminum angle wall, foam wall, or a combination of both. Foam wall spill berms (typically used in drive over applications) have a low profile design and can be built to more than 10,000 square feet.
Similarly, we also offer an oil spill containment berm that features aluminum angle walls on the long sides and foam walls on the ends (shown in the picture at the top of the page). This allows vehicles to drive directly over the berm, but provides a higher height (usually 1 foot) for containment of liquid materials.
Drive Over Spill Containment Berms and Mobility
In general, all of our secondary containment berms are capable of transportation or mobility. Berms are flat, light weight, and can often be folded up for movement to a new location. If, however, you were looking for a berm on wheels we would need to check with our facilities to see if something like this would be possible.
