What Are Bunded Pallets?
A spill containment pallet, a bunded pallet, or a sump pallet, is a containment product designed to hold storage drums with hazardous liquids and dangerous goods securely. Shaped like a tray with a grid platform and made out of highly durable HDPE plastic, the bunding or bunded pallet prevents potentially hazardous chemicals from escaping beyond the drums’ immediate surroundings and keeps the leak contained within the pallet.
This way, a spill – an uncontrolled release of a chemical into the environment – is effectively prevented.
The patent is simple yet amazingly effective. That is the reason that the bunded pallets represent the first line of spill risk mitigation, both when hazardous materials are stored as stationary and when they get moved around the warehouse in line with safety protocols.
Depending on your needs, there are different types and sizes of bunded pallets available. If you’re not sure which portable bund system will best suit your requirements, we will be happy to advise you. Whether you need a chemical containment pallet or a spill pallet for oils and fuels, we’ve got you covered.
Price And Shipping
Our freight rates are highly competitive because our IBC containment pallets nest together only taking one pallet space on a truck. This means we can nest up to 10 pallets at a time which importantly will save you money on freight. We can arrange speedy delivery anywhere in Australia. Contact us today for a price.

Hazardous Liquid Storage And Compliance. Your Obligations.
When choosing a bunded pallet, it is important to understand the requirements for storing hazardous liquids to ensure the safety of staff and the environment.
By regulations, the pallet you are using needs to have a capacity of 120% of the largest bin, drum, or vessel you are planning to store on. The reason for it is that the pallet could safely contain the entire content of the largest container, plus some extra space for easier manipulation of the spill or an additional leak from another smaller vessel. It is considered highly unlikely that more than one, let alone all containers, will extensively leak simultaneously; that is why 120% of the largest drum’s capacity is considered a compliant solution.
Practical example: you have four hazmat drums, 100L capacity each. To store them safely, you need a pallet with a 120L capacity – 120% of the largest vessel’s capacity.
However, since regulations tend to vary and change, if you are unsure of your requirements, we wholeheartedly encourage you to talk to local authorities on the issue.
To make things easier for our customers, Trade Enviro often represents clients by talking to councils about hazardous liquid storage solutions. We will happily discuss your requirements on your behalf, free of charge. That way, we ensure you are using the correct product to comply with all the necessary safety and environmental regulations.
What Are Chemical Spills?
By definition, a chemical spill an uncontrolled release of a chemical. A dangerous chemical spill is an accidental release of one or more hazardous substances that could harm people and the environment. Working with corrosive or toxic chemicals and other potentially dangerous substances always includes the risk of unintentional spills.
How Do You Control Chemical Spillage?
The Occupational Safety and Health management foresees defined steps (we can link the article which contains steps to handle a spill, I believe I wrote about it at least once) to take once the spill has taken place.
However, the best spill scenario is the one in which the spill is prevented.
When you’re choosing a bunded pallet it’s important to understand your requirements for storing hazardous liquids to ensure the safety of staff.
Firstly, it’s important to know that 120% of the largest bin, drum, or vessel is the capacity requirement. In a practical sense, this means you can store 4 x drums on a pallet if the drums are 100L each and you have enough capacity for 120L within the pallet. As it’s highly unlikely you would have 4 x bins leak or rupture at one time, 120% of the largest bin is seen as the compliant solution.
Secondly, we advise talking to local authorities if you are unsure of your requirements. Trade Enviro often represent their clients by talking to councils about hazardous liquid storage solutions and will happily discuss your requirements (free of charge) on your behalf. Ensuring you are using the correct product to ensure safety and environmental compliance.
