Fuel Spill Berm
Question regarding your spill berms: Are they for water handling only or fuels also? I need a berm to be placed between a fueling truck and tank for prevention of diesel fuel spills or leaks. It would need to be about 2 meters W x 3 meters L.
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works. Spill containment berms are an extremely versatile product and are made for fuel, oil, hydrocarbons, as well as various chemicals and water products. They have frequently been implemented in containment for the following:

Spill berms have been made from a wide range of materials equipped to handle both fuel and water products. To help us determine the correct berm for your location, please provide us with information regarding the exact type of liquid you are trying to contain. This can help us match your berm material to your liquid.
For your application, there are two main styles from which to choose:
- Aluminum Bracket: These berms feature aluminum angles that are inserted into the walls for liquid containment. This model can be helpful for areas looking to contain a significant amount of liquid. Standard wall heights will be one foot.
- Foam Wall: The foam wall berm is perfect for locations needing a drive through containment product. Walls are low profile (usually around 4") for easy driving on and off.
Most clients use the low profile foam wall in these applications, although both can stand up to the rigors of a job site. Drive-through foam wall berm allows for ease of installation, use, and convenience.
They are designed as a one piece spill berm with no loose parts. These portable containment berms are easy to setup and unfold then stretch out with self rising end walls that can be driven over repeatedly with no damage.
