What is the difference between the red and blue bund?

The main difference is that the red bund has sealed corners, what makes it very easy to assemble it. When one side of the bund has been erected, the others are raised through action of the pulling force. The sides are provided with yellow hooks used to secure the corners. Handling belts end with metal hooks. The Cargo blue bunds are intended particularly for use in industry and transport, have no sealed corners (when unfolded, the bund is just a flat tarp) and exist in with/without manipulative handles variant. Like the red bunds, the corners are fastened by the yellow hooks.

What is the risk of puncturing?

Apparently, the underside may be damaged when handling the bund in its filled state. For example, when pushing or dragging a filled bund across gravel or sharp objects on the ground. In such cases, we recommend using the yellow pad, which considerably prolongs the durability of the bund (delivered as accessory).

For how long may the retrieved material stay in the bund?

This depends on corrosiveness of the material. Three compatibility levels are defined. A – resistant; B – resistant for up to 3 hours; C – not resistant. These products are not intended for long-term storage of chemical or oil substances; their primary purpose is to capture and collect leaking substances for the time needed before the final appropriate disposal of the liquid (see the Chemical resistance certificate).
