Frequently Asked Questions
What Material Do You Use?
Consolidated Containment uses Proflex material for solid, high quality, trusted material in our berms. For our L-Bracket berms, the sleek, shiny material has a standard thickness that ensures reliability and rigidity for the job.
The smooth texture allows for speed and ease in setting up and taking down the L-Brackets – building the wall to your designated heights. We have meticulously navigated the different types of material over the years to find the right material to work for you. Assembled in Texas, delivered with speed and assurance to you!
What Do I Do with Rainwater That Accumulates in My Containment System?
This depends on the material used in the containment berm. Check the rainwater for any oil. If no oil I present, then the water can be released. If there is oil in the water, however, this mixture will need to be removed and disposed of properly. Check with your state EPA office or fuel dealer for additional info.
Can Berms Be Used Outside of the Oil and Gas Industry?
Yes! The spill containment berms were made for handling mission-critical transfers of liquids and materials, so it can handle a variety of regular, everyday personal use.
Many companies or individuals will use our berms for pond liners, pool liners, or washing cars and trucks that they don’t want the dirt or grime to get on specific surfaces. We enjoy getting feedback from customers who personally use berms for household projects, quick fixes around the office, restaurants…even crawfish boils! Our berms handle the water and temperature to get it done.
