DRIVE-IN SECONDARY CONTAINMENT
SpilGard secondary containment systems fully protect sites from spillage at tanker truck handling points. Unlike conventional portable berms that manage only modest leakage and spills, the SpilGard holds at least 110% of a tanker’s capacity. The unit also safeguards chemical drums, tote bins and equipment driven into its bay or lifted over its two-foot high walls.
