Drive-Over Bunding Comparison
The key to controlling spills in your work area is being prepared, because once a hazardous liquid is already flowing in to a drain, it is too late to take corrective action. When it comes to choosing the correct bunding option there are a few things you’ll need to consider:
- What type of chemicals are you containing? Flammables and oxidisers are best contained behind aluminium bunding which is non-combustible, while corrosives are best behind the chemically resistant EVA Foam or UltraBund, constructed from chemically resistant urethane.
- What height does the bund need to be? Profiles range from 20mm high up to 40mm high.
- How ward wearing does it need to be? In high traffic areas such as doorways, you’re best to go with the UltraBund or Aluminium bunding.
- Required service life. SpillTech Aluminium bunding is a little more expensive upfront but no further expense is required over the coming 10 years which can save you a lot of money over time.
