Full Description 

Make-A-Berm™ barriers can be constructed into a semi-permanent, high-visibility barrier that’s exactly the size and shape you need. This customizable oil spill kit is the prime advantage over ready-to-use containment berms. Make-A-Berm DIY military berm kits are constructed of a pliable open cell foam structure, so the barrier springs back into shape after you walk on it or roll over it with a forklift. It won’t impede foot or vehicle traffic but will be totally effective in spill containment.

Make-A-Berm™ Instructions

Installation is easy. Cut berm material to desired length with scissors or a utility knife. Add corners to completely enclosed area. Secure entire berm to floor with sealant. Section ends overlap and can also be sealed to create a liquid-tight barrier.

Follow these easy steps to assure DIY military berm kits perform for maximum effectiveness:

  1. Unpack Make-A-Berm barrier to allow unit to unfold and lay flat (at least 2 hours).
  2. Floor must be clean of debris and any build-up of grease and oils removed. NOTE: Failure to do so may result in premature failure of Make-A-Berm Barrier Sealant.
  3. Cut the end of caulking top at its widest point.
  4. Apply 2 beads of caulk on the Make-A-Berm barrier approximately 1 inch in from the side and ends, along the entire length and ends of the Make-A-Berm barrier.
  5. Place Make-A-Berm barrier in place and apply pressure to entire length of Make-A-Berm barrier to seal to floor and allow to cure for 1 hour before use. NOTE: Uneven surfaces may need extra sealant applied and more direct pressure to ensure proper sealing.
  6. To apply a Make-A-Berm barrier over frost cracks and form separations, fill these areas first with Make-A-Berm barrier caulking. Then follow the instructions above.
  7. To make splices or attach corners to the Make-A-Berm barrier, simply cut enough vinyl strapping to cover area and apply vinyl cement to the area. Mold the cut piece of strapping over the area and hold in place (approximately 30 seconds).
Additional Tips
  • It is important that the Make-A-Berm barrier is allowed to cure (sealant and glue) for at least 24 hours.
  • Use a utility knife along with a straight edge to cut Make-A-Berm barrier.
  • Use a flat blade shovel to remove Make-A-Berm barrier.
  • Use silicone remover to clean Make-A-Berm barrier.
