Ultra-IBC Hard Top Spill Pallets - Part #1161
Frequently Asked Questions
The pallet has an 8,500 lb. capacity. This is for uniformly distributed loads. An IBC that is supported by pedestal post or feet focuses all of its weight on those feet. If the dimensions of those feet are not large enough to properly displace the weight on the spill pallet’s grating, it could be an issue. As a precaution, steel plates (at least 12″ x 12″) can be used under the feet in order to more evenly distribute the weight over a greater area. If you have any concerns about your IBC’s weight, please contact us at 800-353-1611 / 904-292-1611.
According to the Federal Regulations (40 CFR 264.175), you can store an IBC with a capacity of up to 365 gallons. However, local regulations can be more stringent so it is important to contact your local authorities to ensure compliance.

No, the spill pallet is not completely waterproof. It is more accurately described as weatherproof. In other words, in standard weather conditions, your drums and/or containers should be protected and water gathering in the pallets is not a concern. However, during very gusty conditions or very heavy rainfall, some water may get into the unit. It is good practice to inspect the interior of the hard top after any severe weather.

Because of the different conditions and circumstances that a product like this is used under, it is impossible to put a number on a question like this. However, it is worth noting that (with the exception of a few pieces of hardware) the entire unit is made with polyethylene, which will not rust or corrode. In addition, we use a UV inhibitor to prevent degrading effects from sunlight. Finally, we offer the industry’s best warranty and will cover any material or workmanship defects for up to five years.
The IBCs are NOT included. They are only used in our photographs to help convey the product’s application.
