Aluminium Floor Bunding offers similar longevity as concrete bunds but at a fraction of the price. It is primarily designed to be highly trafficable. Unlike some other bund designs, where the momentum of the vehicle pushes the bund sideways before it passes over it, this bund has a shallow curve design helping the vehicle move effortlessly over the bund. This ease provides extra longevity to the bund as bolts and sealant are not placed under stress. Grooves are scalloped into the top surface of the bund for additional tyre grip.
Fire Resistant Floor Bunding
The use of aluminium makes this floor bund ideal for flammable liquid containment as it non-magnetic, non-sparking and is fire resistant. This requirement is stated in the Australian Standard 1940-2004 as per the below:
A spillage containment compound shall be sufficiently impervious to retain spillage and to enable recovery of any such spillage. The compound shall be chemically resistant and fire resistant as far as is necessary to fulfil its locations.
