Containment Bunds

Containment Bunds (Secondary Containment)

The regulations for above-ground fuel storage on farms (greater than 4ha) require a containment bund be used where more than 2000 litres of petrol or diesel is stored in any one fuel tank, or there is risk of a spillage endangering any building or waterway.

For other applications of fuel storage (not farms), bunding is required where 1000 litres or more of fuel is stored. Your local authority should be able to advise of the requirements.

Containment bunds for tanks up to and including 5000 litre are manufactured from 2.5mm galvanised sheet. The 10,000 litre bund is manufactured from 3mm galvanised sheet.
