Drive Over Bunding
Flexible, easy to install bunds for workshops
Containing spills in workshop areas or drum holding areas can be a headache. Unless oil spills are kept in a contained area, they can migrate into storm water systems or seep into the ground leading to environmental incidents.
SpillPro’s Spill Barrier Bund is drive over bunding designed to enable you to cordon off an area that will contain spills if they occur. Spill Barrier Bunds are easy to install and can be driven over with a 1 tonne load without deflection, making them ideal for loading and unloading areas where forklifts are used.

How this product solves problems
- Keeps oil spills contained
- Maintains its height even when driven over
Drive over barrier bunds can be quickly installed to create a bunded area in workshops, sheds and warehouses. Their robust design enables them to be driven over with up to 1 ton loads without distorting their shape. They prevent spills from reaching sensitive environments where they can be absorbed into the ground or contaminate water streams.
Benefits of SpillPro's Spill Barrier Bund
- Bevelled Edges
SpillPro's Spill Barrier Bund is made of a robust material that does not deform even when driven over with a 1-ton load. It retains its shape and therefore its protection against spill migration.
Spill Barrier Bunds are pre-glued and therefore arrive ready to install. Edges can be cut in order to customise the shape of the bunded area and extra glue can be provided to accommodate this.
Standard 90 cm lengths are available, which can be glued together to form the bunded area. Mitre angles can be cut to seal corners. An entire installation can be completed in ten minutes and be immediately ready for use.
The shape of the bund is bevelled so that it angles up to a flat section on the top and then down again to the other side. This makes it easy for forklifts to drive over.
Sections of SpillPro Spill Barrier Bund are laid together to form a bunded area that can contain spills in workshops, sheds or warehouses.
Segments are glued to the ground and glued to each other to form a seal that prevents any spilled material from escaping the bunded area. If a spill occurs, it can be cleaned up without any risk of contaminating the surrounding environment.
- Produced in 90 cm lengths with a width of 14 cm and a height of 4 cm
- Each segment is pre-glued and ready for installation
- Can be cut to fit a customised shape
