Anderson, SC (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
Basic Concepts, Inc. has expanded their spill containment berm offering with the new Fail Safe™ Plus Spill Berm. The patented Fail Safe™ Plus Spill Berm is a four-sided float up wall design that is an ideal solution for portable or permanent secondary containment needs.
Originally developed as an accessory item for the Modular Channel berm used by the Army Quartermaster Group, the Fail Safe™ Plus Spill Berm was conceived from the patented Fail Safe™ Berm. The Fail Safe™ Plus Spill Berm is a natural line extension to Basic Concepts' spill berm offering.
The walls lay flat and in the event of a spill the walls float up with the spilled fluid. This float up action is accomplished by using vinyl encapsulated open-celled Polyurethane foam booms that are RF welded to the top of the wall.
The Fail Safe™ Plus Spill Berm is designed to be deployed where tight turning radiuses exist. The lay flat design of the Fail Safe ™ Plus Spill Berm offers the user the ability to drive onto the spill berm from any direction without damaging the wall.
The Fail Safe™ Plus Spill Berm can be manufactured from a variety of coated fabrics to meet most chemical compatibility specifications. The Fail Safe™ Plus Spill Berm meets or exceeds all state and federal SPCC regulations for secondary containment.
The lay flat design is advantageous in high wind areas where low profile containment is desired. The Fail Safe™ Plus Spill Berm or any other float up type berm are not recommended for use in winter conditions as snow and ice can impede the floatation from rising the walls. Caution must also be taken to not park the vehicle or trailer to be contained on the wall. This will obviously keep the wall from rising in the event of a spill. In regions where snow and ice are common, the patented original Sentry Quickberm inside strap Sentry Quickberm outside strap designs are recommended.
