Berm Wall Setup Instructions:



Clear and level area (transit level) required to place properly and set-up secondary containment system.





Mark out containment area berm with paint or stakes to determine actual placement or foot print of the  containment wall package.





Place 2" - 6" of screen sand (wash sand) or non-woven geotextile over containment ground area to protect liner.  Sand depth is dependent on ground conditions (clay, top soil, rocky, etc.) and whether or not geotextile will be laid under liner as well as liner thickness.





Carefully unfold liner ensuring it is wrinkle free and centered in the containment area on sand or geotextile.





Place 2" - 6" of screen sand and non-woven geotextile if required over containment liner for protection leaving approximately 3' of uncovered liner around the perimeter of the containment wall.  Fold liner inward to ensure it does not get damaged while setting up the wall panels.





Place the steel containment wall panels face down around the perimeter of where the berm will stand.  Place the panels in such a way that when the wall is setup, the outside of the panel will be directly on the actual berm foot print as marked.





While the panels are face down, slide each of the legs into the wall clips until the top of the leg reaches the top of the wall.





Stand the panels up carefully, ensuring the legs do not slide out and the outside of the panel is in line with the berm foot print as marked.





Connect all adjoining panels with 3 locking drop pins.





Continue around the perimeter until the entire system is erected and square.





Fold liner towards wall panels ensuring it falls into corners with a loose fit.  Minimize folds and creases.





Take liner up and over the berm walls.  The corners will require extra attention - they will have to be carefully folded compared to wrapping a present.





Take corner top ridge caps, two (2) 4-3 pieces, and place 90o of each other and secure to the top of the wall using six (6) Hex Tek self-tapping screws, three (3) screws per corner piece.  This will secure the liner in each corner once the liner has been folded properly.





Fasten the 8-0 top ridge cap pieces to the top of the wall using four (4) Hex Tek self-tapping screws to secure the liner.  Start from the corner ridge cap pieces outward.  Custom size walls will require the top ridge cap to be field cut to fit properly.  Cut ridge caps in such a manner the caps overlap the wall seams by no less than 2 feet.





Trim extra liner around exterior of ridge cap to ensure a neat appearance.
