The other hazard here is that the chemical could get onto somebody working in the facility, and it needs to be rinsed off immediately. So we’ve also molded onto the floor a basin for a shower, so somebody can come in here, pull an emergency chain and have fresh water rinsed over them, and then that is contained in the shower basin and pumped out.
Five hundred fifty gallons of hazardous liquid is heavy, so to transfer that load through the fiberglass grating to the steel sump floor that’s underneath this basin, that fiberglass grating is going to sit on these rigid supports that will carry the load.
After the sump basin is prepared, the next phase is to install the fiberglass grating system. Fiberglass grating has open cells that allow liquids to pass down through the cells, and the walking surface is still non-skid, so there’s no slip issues. It’s rigid, but it still needs to be supported. So in the open areas, there’ll be support columns that keep the grating from bouncing and gives support to who’s walking on the top of the surface.
Custom containment basins are just one more way we customize shelters to meet your specific needs.
Remember, if it was built by Shelter Works, it was built for life.
