If youre storing chemicals or other liquids in an IBC container, then you should be using an IBC bund to catch drips or leaks.
We manufacture the Ecosure range of IBC bunds from environmentally friendly polyethylene (PE), which is ideal for the storage of various acids and alkalis, as well as oils and non-combustible cleaning chemicals. This tough, durable, long-lasting plastic is strong enough to withstand the odd bump from a forklift.
Each bund will support 1600 kg and is ideally suited for the storage of liquids with a maximum specific gravity of 1.4, depending on the weight of each IBC.
Lifting points for forklifts allow for easy maneuvering or repositioning, whilst strengthening ribs give maximum support.
We can manufacture our Ecosure IBC bunds in any colour to suit your companys requirements. Different colours can be used to identify the contents of the IBC container.
