Thank you very much for your enquiry, bunded flooring is a form of secondary containment for spillage or any sort of leaks from the stored items. It is a sumped base with a safety drain valve and a suspended grated floor, a sumped base is a low space that collects any undesirable liquids. The bunded base will prevent the escalation of these uncontrolled fluids through the container floor. Any unwanted substances in that bund would be emptied via a drainage sump and safety drain valve which will prevent the waste splashing around, the waste will then be transferred to a suitable barrel ready for safe disposal at a Chemical Waste Plant.
To install a bunded floor into your existing container, our dedicated fabrications team would overlay the existing marine ply wood to form a steel sump and install grating to your required dimensions. A drain plug would be fitted to extract any spillages from the sump. We would then install 3mm sheet steel durbar flooring to create a walk way for you and the staff using the unit. If you are storing smaller items it may be worth having some bespoke shelving fitted to the unit to ensure that the liquids can all be kept in order. When these units are custom built, we do ask that you let us know the maximum weight that you intend to store on the floor so we can ensure it is built to suit. Other items that can be incorporated when custom building containers are rated electrics, security options or even ramps to assist your fork lift getting into the unit.
