That’s how we came up with the concept of the “BermPac®,” one of the most cost-effective solutions for spill containment on the market. Our spill berms are a convenient method of staying compliant while offering superior protection from spills, leaks or hazardous discharge.

Keep reading to learn more about the BermPac®, what it can be used for, and how it’ll revolutionize the way you contain and prevent spills.

What Are BermPacs®?

The BermPac® is designed to maximize the safety and efficiency of spill containment and leak prevention procedures for various industries.

You’ll often see BermPacs® used by or with:

  • Frac Tanks
  • Mining operations

Which BermPac® is the Best Option for You?

The BermPac® comes in a variety of sizes, materials and styles to help meet the needs of any job requirements. Each style serves a unique purpose and helps address some of the common pain points you’d find with a traditional spill containment or leak prevention solution. To understand which spill berm best suits your needs, we’ll give you a brief highlight of each product offered by PacTec.

Hurdle-Bracket BermPac®

hurdle_bracket_spill_containmentOur Hurdle-Bracket BermPac®, aka the “rigid sidewall” solution, was manufactured to give that extra bit of security to prevent leaks or spills. The larger aluminum hurdle brackets slide into the sidewall, creating a rigid wall eliminating the need for hose bridges. The removable brackets make this berm a great solution for on-the-go or temporary projects.

A consumer might choose a Hurdle-Bracket BermPac® over another product if they need extremely sturdy walls but don’t want to spend a lot of money on a more permanent containment solution. This is one of our most commonly purchased products, and once you see how easy it is to use, you’ll understand why.

Wire Bracket BermPac®

wire_bracket_spill_bermOur Wire Bracket BermPac® is the most commonly used solution for many industries. It has UV, chemical and acid resistant sidewalls that are set up with lightweight, heavy gauge galvanized steel wire brackets. The brackets are designed to securely slide into the sidewalls and stay put even during high winds.

One might choose the Wire Bracket BermPac® if they’re seeking a budget-friendly alternative to the traditional L-bracket spill berm. It’s simple to set up and is reusable and repairable in most cases.

Hinge Bracket BermPac®

The brackets can be removed or replaced if necessary and are seamlessly incorporated into the berm to prevent tripping hazards.

With the quickest setup time in the industry, the Hinge Bracket BermPac® is perfect for someone that needs a fast solution. It can also be folded up and transported from job site to job site. It's sleek, compact, and easy to use!

Pop-Up BermPac®

The permanently attached brackets cannot be removed, lost, or stolen, making transportation a safe and easy process.

With exceptional durability and surprisingly quick setup time, our Pop-Up BermPac® is an incredibly popular choice amongst companies that are always on the go.

Foam Sidewall BermPac®

We generally recommend the Foam Sidewall BermPac® to customers who are looking for something that fits into a lower budget or if equipment will be regularly moved onto and out of the containment. It’s the ideal solution for oil fields. If you’re unsure which kind of foam (hard or soft) would best suit your particular job site needs, we can help guide you.

Collapsible BermPac®

This spill tray can be made in a variety of common spill tray sizes, with the same extra-strength material as our traditional berms. They’re ideal for drips and spills and can be set up in seconds to catch a last minute leak. Best of all, they collapse and roll into a portable solution ready to use.
