Depending on the size of the Ultra-Containment Berm, you can potentially spend thousands of dollars. All of UltraTech’s products, including the berms are the highest quality available and we stand behind them. But when you’re driving a truck that weighs tens of thousands of pounds in and out on a daily basis, even the toughest material can be put to the test.
That’s where ground tarps and track belts come in. These relatively inexpensive options can be purchased for any size berm and will help to ensure your Ultra-Containment Berm is protected and lasts a long time.
Ground tarps go underneath the berm and are typically 1 to 4 feet larger than the berm itself. They are made from an 18.5 oz/sq. yd. polyester blended PVC. By placing the ground tarp down before you deploy your Ultra-Containment Berm, you can prevent punctures, tears, and rips from rocks or debris that may be underneath the berm’s floor.
The ground tarp plus serves the same purpose as the standard ground tarp but is more tear and puncture resistant. It provides excellent protection in the oil fields and other rocky areas where extra heavy-duty protection is required. It also has the additional benefit of an absorbent top layer for nuisance leaks, drips, and spills.
Track belts are 30” wide sections of material that lie inside the containment berm and act as a “buffer” between a vehicle’s tires and the berm. Track belts come in pairs and will typically run the length of the berm’s usable space. Some customers prefer to get a few extra feet on each end so they can also cover the end walls. The polyester blended PVC layer provides low stretch and good tear resistance. The heavy-duty PVC compound offers excellent oil/hydrocarbon resistance as well as good wear characteristics.
Get It All-In-One and Eliminate Missing Parts
The “All-In-One” option for the Ultra-Containment Berm has all of the extra protection you need built right in. Both the ground tarp and track belts are pre-attached (welded or heat-sealed) depending on the materials used to make your berm. Once you unpackage the berm and set it up, it will be ready to use with the additional protection already in place.
Order part # 8670 with any berm to receive this great feature. (NOTE: This option is not available with the economy model containment berms)
