Ultra-Containment Berm Comparison Video Transcript

Ultra-Containment Berms provide versatile spill containment for vehicles, drums, IBCs, totes, frac tanks and other containers and vessels that would otherwise not have a good containment option.

There are eight different Spill Containment Berm models to choose from each offering its own unique advantage.

The purpose of this video is to compare each model to help you choose which one would work best in your application.

The one unique feature that is different from model to model of Ultra-Containment Berm is the way in which the sidewalls raise or lower to allow vehicles and equipment in or out.

The Collapsible Wall Model Spill Containment Berm features rugged PVC sidewall assemblies for sidewall support. The "feet" of the assemblies are swiveled to lower or raise the sidewalls in just seconds!

The Stakewall Model uses flexible, urethane stakes to provide structure for the Berm’s sidewalls. This model provides true drive-in and drive-out capability as the stakes flex in or out to allow traffic into or out of the Berm.

The Ultimate Model takes the best of both worlds of the Collapsible Wall Model and the Stake Wall Model and combines them. By using the PVC sidewall assemblies of the Collapsible Wall Model and the flexible stakes of the Stakewall Model, the Ultimate Model provides true drive-in and drive-out capability at a more economical cost.

The Foam Wall Model uses blocks of foam (typically 2 or 4 inches high) to provide structure for the sidewalls. The foam compresses under the weight of vehicles or equipment and springs back once the weight is lifted.

The Rapid Rise Model is unique as it relies on the foam in the top perimeter to raise the sidewalls in the event of a spill. The advantage to this is that during day-to-day operations the sidewalls stay down and out of the way.

The Compact Model uses built-in aluminum struts to support each sidewall. Sidewalls are manually set up by inserting each strut into its sidewall sleeve or taken down by removing the strut.

The Economy Model uses L-shaped brackets for its support. The brackets are simply inserted into built-in sleeves around the perimeter of the Berm to provide support for each sidewall. When it is necessary to put a sidewall down, those brackets are removed and set aside.

The Modular Model also known as the Gorilla Berm is the newest addition to the Ultra-Containment Berm line. It uses triangular-shaped, polymer-coated foam support blocks for its sidewalls. The Berm’s material is placed over the support blocks and 1” rebar is placed into the molded-in slots in the top of each block to keep the material in place.

There are many different options available when choosing an Ultra-Containment Berm and each model has its own advantage.
