Aluminium floor bunding is a unique product combining both a functional material and design. It allows for an easy retrofit of permanent floor bunding that suits a majority of industrial applications indoors or out.
The marine grade extruded aluminium delivers a solid and robust bund which can withstand high-frequency traffic over a long period of time. The 30mm height provides bunding capacity while the profile allows forklifts to easily pass over without compromising the vehicle’s clearance.
The product is suitable for applications where heavy industrial and commercial vehicles operate (forklifts, Class 2 RAV B Doubles, or similar). Factors that need to be taken into account when determining the load application are:
Aluminium Floor Bunding offers similar longevity as concrete bunds but at a fraction of the price. It is primarily designed to be highly trafficable. Unlike some other bund designs, where the momentum of the vehicle pushes the bund sideways before it passes over it, this bund has a shallow curve design helping the vehicle move effortlessly over the bund. This ease provides extra longevity to the bund as bolts and sealant are not placed under stress. Grooves are scalloped into the top surface of the bund for additional tyre grip.
The use of aluminium makes this floor bund ideal for flammable liquid containment as it non-magnetic, non-sparking and is fire resistant. This requirement is stated in the Australian Standard 1940-2004 as per the below:
A spillage containment compound shall be sufficiently impervious to retain spillage and to enable recovery of any such spillage. The compound shall be chemically resistant and fire resistant as far as is necessary to fulfil its locations.
Aluminium Floor Bunding can be powder coated to create an extremely tough, heavy duty high visibility option required by some workplaces.
Before purchasing floor bunding ensure you check ground clearance of forklifts. Installation is straightforward. The process requires minimal experience.
