Ultra Ground Tarp & Track Belt

Tarp Protection for Spill Berms

Ultratech Heavy Duty Ground Tarps and Ultra Track Belts go the extra mile in protecting your spill berm investment. While all Ultratech products are of the highest quality, these products help your spill berm last even longer. One (the Ultra Heavy Duty Ground Tarp) provides protection from below the spill containment berm, and the other (the Ultra Track Belt) from above. We also carry the Ultra Ground Tarp Plus for use on especially rugged terrain. Choose the "all in one" option, and they will arrive already attached to your spill berm and assembled. The Heavy Duty Ground Tarp and Track Belts are inexpensive and can be purchased for any size of spill berm to ensure that your Ultra Containment Berm lasts a long time. For more information, see Spill Containment Accessories.

Heavy Duty Ground Tarp & Track Belt Details

Use Ultra Heavy Duty Ground Tarps beneath a spill berm to prevent puncture, tears and rips that can occur from rocks or debris in the ground below. Place your Ultra Ground Tarp on the ground first, then the spill berm on top. For best tarp protection, select an Ultra Ground Tarp size that's 1 to 4 feet larger than the berm itself.

Ultra Ground Tarp Plus is used the same way as the Ultra Heavy Duty Ground Tarp, but can take even more pressure and abuse. In addition to providing even more protection, it also has an absorbent top layer to capture any drips or spills that can happen on the jobsite. It consists of 3 barrier films sandwiched between two layers of needle-punched geotextile with heat fused surfaces. However, it installs as a single layer, eliminating the common problems with multiple-layer installation. The Ultra Ground Tarp Plus offers 3X more tear protection and 5X more puncture protection than the standard 30 mil HDPE liners, and it won't stretch or crack like HDPE. Additionally, the high traction surface guards against slipping injuries.

Ultra Track Belts protect your spill berm from wear and damage caused by trucks or equipment driving over the spill berm. While sturdy and built for this purpose, with tens of thousands of pounds of weight driving over the berms on a regular basis, even the toughest fabrics can be put to the test. The Ultra Track Belts act as a buffer between the vehicle's tires and the spill berm. When wear does happen, it will be to the track belt, not the spill berm. Track belts are easily replaceable as needed.

While these components can be ordered separately, you also can choose to order them as an "All in One" where they are pre-attached (heat-sealed or welded). This provides the additional benefit of having them already in place when you set up the spill berm. Note: The "All in One" is not available for the Economy Model of the Ultra Containment Berm.

Heavy Duty Ground Tarp & Track Belt Applications

Ultra Ground Tarps and Track Belts are recommended for heavy duty use of spill berms. The Ultra Ground Tarp protects spill berms from underlying hazards that could puncture the berm from below. The Ultra Ground Tarp Plus is recommended for more treacherous and rugged terrain, such as oilfields, where there are more and larger rocks and debris that could pose a risk to your spill berm. Additionally, the Ultra Ground Tarp Plus features a spill absorbent layer. The Ultra Track Belt provides a protective layer to prevent drive-through spill berm wear from heavy equipment or vehicle traffic. When wear and tear happens on the jobsite, it will be to the track belts, and you'll only need to replace them (instead of the spill berm).

It's also good to keep an Ultra-Berm Repair Kit on hand, on the jobsite. No matter how careful one is, accidents can happen. Keeping a repair kit on hand not only minimizes jobsite down time when that happens, but fixing tears quickly helps avoid additional damage to the spill berm. The Ultra Berm Repair Kit contains everything needed to make most repairs and is customized to the type of spill berm needed.

Compact Model Spill Containment Berms FAQs

Yes! Both the Ultra Ground Tarp and the Ultra Ground Tarp Plus are available in custom sizes.

The Ultra Ground Tarp is popular in jobsites with average conditions, where the ground is smooth and there's minimal rocks or debris. The Ultra Ground Tarp Plus is typically used in more rigorous jobs, such as oilfields, where larger or sharper rocks and debris are common. The Plus model also incorporates an absorbent layer to capture any minor drips or spills.
