Choosing the right spill mat

Spill mats are used as a temporary option to contain and capture chemical spills. They were developed to assist in compliance with environmental protection laws and regulations.

How do they work?

Spill mats work by capturing and storing hazardous liquids which could potentially leak into the surrounding areas. You place the spill bund under the potential leak risk and it will prevent the contaminants from reaching the ground, stormwater system or waterway.

Using a spill mat

Temporary bunds are portable and quick to deploy. They are perfect for processing plants, chemical storage and handling facilities, warehouses and workshops.

Place an appropriate sized spill mat under equipment or containers to capture a range of different chemicals including oils, solvents, hydrocarbons and even acids.

In the event of a spill or leak, clean up is quick and slip hazards are prevented while environmental safety is improved.

What are the advantages of spill mats?

Spill mats are advantageous since they put a preventative measure in place for any possible leaks or spills.

By implementing this temporary solution you protect the environment from pollutants and avoid non-compliance with environmental laws and regulations.

  • Easy to store and transport, and quick to set up.
  • Are reusable, convenient and portable, making them a common choice for any industry at risk of leaks and spills.

What can spill mats be used for?

There are a number of different applications for spill mats. For example, they can be used when storing liquid containers carrying hazardous materials, or placed underneath equipment to prevent spills.

Spill mats can also be used during hose lay downs during the cleaning process of spills. Or you could use your bund to help seamlessly transfer hazardous liquids from one station to another.
