Why Do I Need Secondary Containment?
While harmful chemicals and materials may be stored in the correct containers, they may still be at risk to leak or break for a number of reasons. To ensure this does not create a harmful situation, a secondary system allows you to catch any overflow or leakage, so it does not run onto the ground or into the drainage routes. Different classes and quantities of hazardous liquids require different levels of secondary containment to ensure that anything coming into the space can be correctly managed as disposed of.
What Are Pallets?
Pallets to contain these materials act as an effective way to store hazardous liquids in accordance with any surrounding regulations. These provide a space on which to fit containers, giving stability and support, while ensuring a wide enough base to catch any potential leak or overflow from the containers above. In the past, costly and permanent fixtures such as concrete block walls were the only solution, the introduction of pallets has made compliance much more economical and easier to achieve, as well as being safer and more practical to use. A more versatile product that can be used in far more applications.
Can I Store Pallets Outside?
Being polyethylene, pallets are resistant to the rust issues that steel containment options face when positioned outside. While pallets can be used outside, it is important to ensure the area is still shielded and shaded, as an excess of rainwater or debris can compromise the ability of the system to properly contain any leaks.
