BULK LIQUID CONTAINER YARD DRIVE-OVER SPILL CONTAINMENT BERM

A large Construction company in Texas required a heavy-duty drive-over spill containment berm system (secondary containment berm) for a new bulk liquid container facility that was taller than our current 2” Berm Bump. They also wanted a 4” high berm to contain the waste water in the same area.

Situation

A large Construction company in Texas required a heavy-duty drive-over spill containment berm system (secondary containment berm) for a new bulk liquid container facility that was taller than our current 2” Berm Bump. They also wanted a 4” high berm to contain the waste water in the same area.

Problem

The engineers at G.R. Birdwell Construction required an easily installed drive-over berm system that was taller than 2”, more durable than foam filled berms or temporary short-term berm solutions and much easier to install than concrete.

RubberForm Innovation

RubberForm worked with the Engineers at the G.R. Birdwell Construction and proposed a 3” high drive-over spill containment berm along with our 4” high, chemical resistant EPDM solid rubber secondary containment berm. RubberForm modified it’s 4” Speed Bump to 3” tall solid molded, durable spill berm. This gave RubberForm 2 new solutions, a 3” high drive-over containment berm and a 3” high Speed Bump to be added to RubberForm’s, American Made recycled material product offerings.

Outcome

A successful installation by G.R. Birdwell Construction where they installed our modified 4” Speed Bump to a 3” tall drive-over spill containment berm for heavy axles tow motors and other heavy trucks. It’s been so successful that G.R. Birdwell has installed numerous times,

Solution

120’ of our newly developed 3” high drive-over spill containment berm bump, 120’ of our 4” high solid EPDM extruded containment berm, heavy duty anchors that were epoxied into the concrete base. G.R. Birdwell along with their bulk container customer are very pleased with the outcome, another successful RubberForm Applied Innovation where the RubberForm Innovations team listened and Innovated.
