With the risk of contaminating the environment and the heavy penalties involved, it is essential that the bunds protecting your storage tanks are kept in good repair.
But what happens if the tank fails and its contents leak? In the short term the surrounding blocks or brickwork will absorb the liquid and contain it but very soon the saturated barrier will break down with only one expensive result.
Vegetation growing in your bund is another sure sign that your bund is not impermeable.
A fibreglass bund lining is the most cost effective option in the long run. With a lined bund, leaking problems are all but eliminated. Our long life, durable fibreglass lining has been developed to withstand most chemicals and oils. Forming a seamless inner skin, the result is a bund within a bund that will give you a sealed unit and peace of mind for years to come.

Smooth easy clean surface
Resistant to a wide range of chemicals/acids
Installed by experts
Guaranteed for 10 years
If the bund is lined by Lining Services how long will it last?
We offer a guarantee of ten years for all our fibreglass lining work, but in our experience fibreglass linings last much longer and 20 – 30 years would be usual.
Is the bund fibreglass lining chemical resistant?
Yes we have a wide range of chemical resistant resins – isophthalic, vinyl ester and epoxy based resins, which are resistant to a wide range of chemicals. We also have a vast amount of experience in-house of the resistance of our fibreglass linings to chemical environments.
What about cleaning the bund prior to lining?
We normally expect our clients to steam/chemical clean the bund prior to lining. Alternatively we can arrange, through a sub-contractor, suitable cleaning and in certain conditions the bund may need to be gritblasted.
In certain areas of the bund the brickwork/blockwork is loose. Will I need to repair this before the bund is lined?
Yes, it would be necessary to repair any severely damaged areas. But where cracks and erosion is evident, the fibreglass lining will impart additional structural strength to the walls of the bund and it will seal all cracks and voids.
