Doorway Spill Barriers

Secondary Containment of Spills with Doorway Spill Barriers

DENIOS prides itself on leading the spill control and containment industry in product development.

Spill containment or Secondary Containment systems are generally conceived to hold a pre-defined volume of liquid in a containment or spill sump sized for the specific volume of product being stored. These products confine a spill in the sump to prevent the spill from spreading.

Many situations do not lend themselves to common secondary containment equipment. Processing or warehousing often involve larger volumes or areas than can be practically housed in a hazmat enclosure. In addition, what about damage to facilities from outside floodwaters? What options are there for containing larger spills or floods that threaten wide areas?

OSHA and EPA Regulations require that all releases be contained and that the flow of chemicals and / or sprinkler water be prevented from migrating into drains, sewers or the environment. Such large volume spills can prove to be catastrophic in scope and expenses involving reclamation, repair and monetary fines.

Recent developments have led us to combine several of our newest technologies into a new family of products under the LASC™ trade name. DENIOS is your best partner for analyzing and solving your Large Area Spill Containment issues.
