Bunding, also called a bund wall, is the area within a structure designed to prevent inundation or breaches of various types.
The term can also refer to dikes, but it is frequently used to describe liquid containment facilities that prevent leaks and spillage from tanks and pipes, though sometimes any barrier is referred to as bunding. Frequently, the liquids in tanks and pipes are toxic, but bunding is used to prevent the liquid from causing damage (either by force or its chemistry) If a large tank has a catastrophic failure, the liquid alone can cause extensive damage.
Bunding is a legal requirement in many countries particularly around tanks, storage vessels and other plant that contain liquids which may be dangerous or hazardous to the environment.
Prenco's Bunding solutions offer portable/flexible as well as fixed options for that "wall" "dike" "barrier" to contain any fluid.
Flexible-Portable Bunds - set up wherever a bund is needed to store hazardous materials, service equipment or contain fluids from leaks and failures. Use them as a containment wash bay - just drive in! Many size options.
Floor Bunding - Create a Bunded area with "stick-down" Spill Barrier Bund:
Workshops & Factories - Across Doorways and Entrances - Around Machinery - Transport Depots - Fuel transfer bays.
These products along with other Portable & Flexible Barriers found in this bunding section, all help control those fluids that may leak or just need storing correctly to fulfil the environmental and legislative requirements.
