SARASOTA, Florida (May 30, 2011) – Interstate Products, Inc. (IPI), the leading manufacturer of spill containment products and the preferred source for environmental and industrial solutions announces the launch of an enhanced line of rapid entry spill containment berms. The company’s new high performance XR-5 Berm options are manufactured with 30 millimeter XR 5 Fabric from Seaman’s Corporation and offer the highest standards of durability and spill containment. With the XR-5 product line, IPI continues to expand deeper into the drive-through containment berm market led by its Rapid Entry Ready Berm product line and an emphasis on regulatory compliance solutions for industrial, commercial and military applications. The new Rapid Entry Ready Berm option allows vehicles to drive over walls upon entry and exit without having to lower them first.
As the ‘authority in spill containment’ for over a decade, IPI manufactures and distributes a nearly infinite variety of portable spill containment berms that are designed to help the military and industry to comply with the regulations of 40 CFR part 112 of the Clean Water Act, also referred to as the Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) regulations. New accessory features like the XR-5 Track Mats are designed to unroll on top of the berm, are made for truck tires to drive on to protect the berm from wear and sharp objects that may be stuck in truck tires.
IPI’s Rapid Entry Ready Berm is a secondary containment solution that helps industry comply with SPCC mandates at oil, fuel and chemical storage facilities and provides release containment for petroleum products and various chemicals handled in manufacturing processes around the world. Typical applications for the portable containment berms include containing fuel tankers during transfer operations, providing containment for above-ground storage tanks, portable generator sets and chemical and hydrocarbon storage drums. IPI’s spill berms are able to contain thousands of gallons when required and are fast and easy to deploy and break down. The new line also features a collapsible “L” Bracket Wall construction. The exit and entry walls are made with edges that lay almost flat on the ground so that trucks may drive in and out freely. The edge will automatically rise with the level of any spill.
In addition to providing regulatory compliance and spill remediation, the Rapid Entry Ready Berm line offers the highest quality and can be custom manufactured utilizing various structural technologies that can adapt to virtually any containment requirement. Ideal for big for tanker trucks and fuel trucks including military and commercial applications, IPI’s drive-through spill berms allow tankers to drive in and out of the berm without lowering walls and in the event of spills it provides countermeasure and containment. Rapid Entry Ready Berms are manufactured to exacting quality standards using heavy duty reinforced chemical-resistant fabrics to trap fuel, oil, acids, gasoline, hydrocarbons and a broad range of chemicals. Every IPI spill berm is portable, designed for rapid deployment and is backed by an industry leading 7 year limited warranty on seams and workmanship. In addition, there is also a 10 year pro-rated warranty on cracking due to UV and mildew damage for berms manufactured using XR-5 fabric.
