What is rubber floor bunding?

  • A permanent or temporary rubber spill control bunding solution allowing vehicles access to bunded containment areas (also referred to as drive over bunding or rollover bund).
  • A durable form of spill control that is easily installed (supplied including fasteners for installation).

Rubber floor bunding creates a perfect barrier for wash-bays. It is also ideal when employed as secondary containment for liquid storage areas that contain bunded spill pallets or IBC bunds and water diversion as required.

Rubber Floor Bunding 40mm heightRubber floor bunding is 40mm x 120mm wide and opposed to square set bunding is not a trip hazard due to its height and shape making it a more versatile option for spill containment in heavy trafficked areas.

When considering the right bunding solution for your business, take into account the amount of traffic and expected usage expected during the life cycle of the product.

Rubber floor bunding stands up over time and is designed to protect the environment while providing vehicular access allowing for improved storage and transfer. We haven’t had a disappointed customer yet.


Two Stage Hole - Bunding InstallationHow to install Floor Bunding

The product is easily installed and is supplied in 5m sections or by the meter. Multiple sections are then joined seamlessly into a bunded area for perfect watertight containment. The bunding fastens into solid concrete floors with masonry fasteners. The use of adhesives ensures it is watertight and leak proof.

  1. Simply lay the bunding out flat in the sun for 30 mins prior to the installation. This softens it for easier handling and shaping.
  2. Ensure the rubber is pre-drilled with a two-stage depth. This should be 25mm for the first (15mm deep) and 8mm – 10mm the rest of the way through creating a shoulder for the bolt.
  3. 45 Degree AngleNext, mark out and set out the area with a chalk line and lay the bunding out dry ensuring a good fit.
  4. Use the rubber section as a template and drill the concrete with a masonry drill bit 10mm deep.
  5. Remove and sweep the concrete dust from the work area.
  6. Liberally apply adhesive, starting from one end working the bunding into place securing the bolt as you go.

Pro Tip
It’s wise to utilize an air blower to blow the dust, especially the pre-drilled holes to ensure there is no difficulty with fitting the bolts. If you are doing the installation yourself, steel Dyna bolts will allow for a superior installation.

FAQ

Can I drive over it with heavy machinery?
Yes, we even refer to it as drive over bunding. But if it’s a known wheel path we can arrange to have ramps made to allow even easier vehicle access. This can be more effective than a sudden bump for forklifts and prolongs the lifespan of the product. Generally, as a rule, heavy graded earthmoving equipment is not advised to drive directly on the rubber floor bund.
Is it OK to use outdoors?
Yes, but please remember it creates a watertight seal. If it rains and the water can’t get away the area can pool creating a hazard. Outdoor use such as for wash bays usually has a floor waste allowing the water to get away. TRADE ENVIRO specialise in wash bay design and installations.
What adhesives do I use?
Different surfaces respond better to different adhesives. We use Fuller 303 for the best results (SIKA FLEX doesn’t stick well to the rubber). Ensure a continuous line – for best results apply in a zig-zag motion as per the diagram below.
