In this blog, we’ll discuss a few critical questions to ask yourself to decide whether containment bunds are suitable for your needs or not. So, continue reading below and visit Wholesale Safety Storage Australia to find containment solutions for your business!

Four Important Questions To Help You Understand The Purpose And Application Of IBC Containment Bunds.

How To Decide Whether IBC Containment Bunds Are A Suitable Option For Your Facility by Wholesale Safety Storage AustraliaAppropriate storage solutions are an absolute must-have when using and storing chemicals in the workplace. Accidental spills or leaks could lead to serious damage to the flooring and objects the chemical comes in contact with and expose employees, contractors, and customers to potential health risks. It also presents the possibility of harmful reactions should the spill meet with an incompatible substance; all the more reason to invest in IBC containment bunds!

Still, if you are unsure whether your facility truly requires the use of containment bunds, then ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do I need an IBC containment bund? If your facility stores, transfers, processes or disposes of chemicals, it should use containment bunds for intermediate bulk containers. Containment bunds are necessary for both harmful and non-harmful chemicals, so keep this in mind when choosing your chemical storage solutions. In addition, containment bunds ensure you are adhering to local guidelines, whether you are storing flammable substances, petroleum, solvents, or even pesticides.
  2. What type of bund should I be using? Deciding which bund to use depends on the type of chemicals that need to be stored. For instance, corrosive chemicals are more suited to plastic containment bunds, whereas highly flammable substances should be stored on steel containment bunds.
  3. Are IBC bunds a durable solution for my facility? Containment bunds are generally long-lasting, given the proper care and maintenance are adhered to. You should inspect your bunds on a monthly basis and assess their compliance with local chemical storage legislation.
  4. How will my facility benefit from using containment bunds? IBC containment bunds ensure that spills and leaks are contained entirely, fostering a safe work environment. A safer work environment encourages productivity and improved production.

IBC containment bunds protect the environment, workplace, and, most importantly, your employees and customers. So, visit Wholesale Safety Storage Australia to find the IBC containment bunds best suited for your facility!

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 $135 + 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.
