Due to rigorous requirements, sufficiently meeting the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) laws can be challenging. PacTec’s Hinge Bracket BermPac® spill berms are the ideal solution because they are designed to meet environmental protection laws and protect employee health and safety while offering labor savings and convenience to your operations.
One person can easily unfold the hinge bracket berms and raise each L-bracket hinge to a 90-degree angle on all four berm sides. This utility helps avoid job scheduling delays since you do not need to schedule two people to manage most sizes of the hinge bracket spill containment berms. The portability of the bracketed spill berms also means you have more flexibility concerning the jobs you can accept. These spill berms are rugged and can contain large spills and leaks of petroleum products and chemicals.

PacTec’s hinge bracket berms are unique in that the sidewalls are a more manageable 6” height, instead of the industry standard of 12”. Our customers worked with us to develop a product that would still contain spills effectively but reduce cost, berm weight, and bulk from their containment units.
Yes, once the hinges are opened in the upright (90° position), they remain that way by an innovative hinge design. However, they can easily be closed as needed for ease of equipment loading into the containment berm.
The great thing about the hinges in this berm design is that they can be removed from their pockets and replaced if necessary. Replacement brackets are available for immediate order and shipment.
Our hinge bracket berms are shipped with all brackets pre-inserted into each pocket, ready for immediate use. The cost of the berm includes the brackets.
