Aluminum angle berms are a containment solution best suited for extended or semi-permanent containment. When keeping hazardous liquids contained, choosing a spill containment berm for the correct location, price, and situation is what sets the sometimes-effective options apart from the always-reliable solutions.
A spill containment berm that lays flat, easily installs, and keeps spills maintained will best handle the storage and mitigation of hazardous materials leeching into a workspace or natural environment.
Depending on the liner used, aluminum angle spill berms can handle different materials. Standard liner fabric options for aluminum angle berms are:
- 22 oz. PVC
- 40 oz. PVC
- 40 mil LLPDE
- 30 oz. Elvaloy
- 32 oz. Polyurethane
Spill containment barriers can also be customized with additional liner materials and weights for specific project needs. Aluminum angle berms can contain large objects or multiple small objects. Objects that need containing are frac tanks, paint drums, chemical containers, storage tanks, or 55-gallon drums.
Chemicals and different types of contaminated water, like frac water and chemical-based water, can all be contained by spill containment berms. The type of liquid or chemical being contained in the berm will depend on what specifications are made to it.
Aluminum angle berms can safely contain:
- Fuels like diesel and gasoline
- Hydrocarbons and oil
- Spills from machinery and work sites
Filling out a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) can help determine what type of containment berm best meets your needs.
