Aluminum Angle Spill Berm
Question: Hello, I am looking for a spill berm or some other secondary containment item that I can use for storage under some tanks I have. Do you have any recommendations?
Answer: For secondary containment of tanks, drums, or other large items, the Aluminum Angle Containment Berm can be a reliable choice. These berms are designed using an containment liner material that offers a high resistance to chemicals, spills, and other hazardous liquids. This allows the berm to be used in versatile applications for storage of large tanks and even vehicles.
The secondary containment berm is designed for versatile use and has been used in a wide range of applications and settings. These berms have the strength to be driven over, making them ideal for large capacity tanks, large machinery, or industrial sizes vehicles. These secondary containment berms have been used for several different applications including:
- Containment for Large Vehicles
- Tank Storage
- Industrial Product Containment
- Water Storage
- Containment for Machinery
- Quick Transportation to Required Locations
Use With Vehicles
One of the best advantages of these berms is their ability to be used with vehicles and other large transportation items. This drive-through ability has made it easier for containment to be placed around vehicles with limited hassle
In order to drive vehicles directly onto the berm, the aluminum angles on the entrance side of the berm can be temporarily removed, allowing vehicles to pass directly onto the berm. Once the vehicle is in place, this wall can be reassembled to complete the containment area.
How To Setup An Aluminum Angle Spill Berm
Setup for the aluminum angle berm is quick and easy to accomplish. In order to set up this berm, follow the simple steps shown below:
- Take the spill berm out of the storage bag and lay it out flat on the ground.
- Fold in the sides of the berm so that the outer walls of the berm are facing up.
- Remove the aluminum angles from the storage bag and lay them next to pockets seen on the outer berm wall. These angles are built with a 90° angle.
- Place the angles into the pockets from bottom to top. The 90° angle should be placed so that the bottom and side of the berm are surrounded by the aluminum angles. This means that the top part
of the aluminum angle should be along the side of the berm within the pocket, while the bottom of
the aluminum angle is touching the ground.
Spill berms typically come with the liner, aluminum angles, and storage bag. This helps keep all your materials in one location so that berms can be quickly assembled and placed in their required containment areas.
