In cases of catastrophic spills or sprinkler releases, containing the spill to a single room or area can limit the costs associated with clean-up or facility damage.
DENIOS US Automatic Doorway Spill Barrier provide the protection to contain those large spills by closing off any doorway or opening in the affected room at the first sign of flowing liquids.
Federal Regulations along with Local Jurisdictions require that sprinkler water in combination with regulated or hazardous materials be prevented from being released into the environment via sewers, streams, or ground contamination. When a release occurs, fines and clean-up costs can be staggering.
