Choosing the Chemical Spill Containment and Response Kit for Your Needs

When faced with such a wide range of choice in spill kits on the market, how do you know which is right for you?  The most common types of spill kits are: General Purpose Spill Kits, Oil and Fuel Spill kits, and Hazchem Spill Kits.  Then there are the specialised spill kits, designed with specific requirements in mind.  These include Laboratory and Healthcare Spill kits and Marine Spill Kits.

Make Sure Your Spill Kit Meets Your Requirements

Spill kits are necessary in many industries across Australia.  From workshops, warehouses, factories, marinas, schools, hospitals, to more confined areas like vans, utes and trucks.  At Wholesale Safety Storage Australia, we have a range of spill kit sizes.  For vehicles, we have a large range that are purpose built for vehicles – contained in a water resistant canvacon bag to easily fit any vehicle.  We also supply a large range of spill kits packed inside a wheelie bin, right up to pallet sized for marine spills.  The absorbents contained in the spill kits sold by Wholesale Safety Storage Australia are typically able to absorb 20 times their own weight.

Which Type of Spill Kit Is Right For Me?

The most common types of spill kits are: General Purpose Spill Kits, Oil and Fuel Spill Kits and Chemical Spill Kits.

  • Oil and Fuel Spill Kits are yellow in colour and are specifically designed to absorb hydrocarbons without absorbing water.  Because the absorbents used in oil and fuel spill kits repel water, they are ideal for cleaning up spills in wet environments (sumps, drains, rivers, or in the rain).
  • General Purpose Spill Kits are ideal for all liquids, except for aggressive acids or bases.  The big difference to note between the general purpose absorbents and hydrocarbon absorbents, is that the general purpose absorbents do not repel water.
  • Chemical Spill Kits are good for acids, bases, as well as coolants and paints.  Hazchem spill kits contain absorbents are dust free and will not degrade or chemically react with the absorbed liquid.

The Important Thing is to Have Your Spill Kit Before You Need It

The fines for contaminating waterways or storm-water drains can be crippling to a business, as well as have a devastating effect on the environment.  To find the right the right choice in spill kit, get in touch with Wholesale Safety Storage Australia today.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $125 (inc GST) to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
