Untitled Document The manual BLOBEL Spill Barrier BL/ST installed at a facility in Europe was put to the test by a real fire. The manual Doorway Spill Barrier implemented performed as expected and contained any contaminated fire fighting water and sprinkler water run-off within the facility. The Spill Barrier BL/ST withstood the heat generated by the fire with ease. Even though the facility was damaged by the fire beyond repair, the BLOBEL Spill Barrier sustained little damage.

BLOBEL has long time experience manufacturing Spill Barriers. Key is the quality of material used and the sealing technology implemented. Where lager Spill Barriers heights are concerned, Spill Barrier panels are welded not bonded. Sealing material used is based on a special, highly flexible foam material. BLOBEL Spill Barrier seals are chemical resistant and fire retardant according to DIN 4102-B1. The manual and automatic Spill Barriers BLOBEL manufactures, can accommodate floor unevenness up to 20mm. BLOBEL Spill Barriers are design tested by the LGA Germany and have gone though and passed praxis oriented fire testing with the IDF Germany.

Implemented Spill Barriers not only contain sprinkler water and contaminated fire fighting water during a fire. Depending on facility setup, Spill Barriers may also prevent other hazardous substances such as flammable liquid spills from spreading into other parts in the facility. This may be a significant part in loss prevention and may allow the organisation to resume operations sooner.
