Depending on the requirements, the Containment Barrier BL/BED-PM is triggered by the Fire Control Switchboard, Flow Meters, Leakage Detectors or any other Hazard detection systems. Key features of the Spill Barrier BL/BED-PM are that it can be operated independently by a push button system, which allows for immediate action by personnel. Spills or contaminates of low volumes and any foam material also trigger the Containment Barrier. The Spill Barrier is installed on the floor surface, usually no modifications to the floor surface are required. This has the advantage that no hazardous material such as resins will clog or harden in floor sumps and prevent the barrier from being triggered. Furthermore, small amounts of hazardous materials or vapours are not being collected or trapped which may pose a ignition danger.

The Containment Barrier BL/BED-PM is fitted with an acoustic warning signal. With an upgrade package, a closing stop and visual warning light, as per the German VDS Guideline 2564, can be integrated.
