The new patent covers the Rigid-Lock QuickBerm® and Fail-Safe® foldable secondary containment designs.

Basic Concepts, Inc. announced today the issuance by the US Patent Office of a patent that covers the new Rigid-Lock QuickBerm® and FailSafe® secondary containment products.

“Today's secondary containment customers demand reliable, safe, easy to use spill berms that deploy quickly, store compact and require no assembly. That is the motivation behind the Rigid-Lock wall support,” stated Russell Guffee, VP & General Manager of Basic Concepts.

The NEW patent completely eliminates the need for bulky, awkward triangulated wall supports found in current spill berm offerings that are often damaged during use. Basic Concepts is convinced that this is now the safest spill berm available. The Rigid-Lock support greatly reduces the tripping hazards associated with the obsolete triangulated wall supports, while still having the Basic Concepts’ standard features of a user-friendly single piece construction spill berm that requires no assembly. Simply unfold the Rigid-Lock QuickBerm® or FailSafe® spill berm and lift the walls into an upright position and you are ready to use the spill containment device.

Basic Concepts is committed to aggressively enforcing its intellectual property rights relating to environmental products and technology that was invented, perfected and commercialized by the company.
