Washout by OutPak is Great at Protecting the Envionment

 

In this environmentally-conscious world, it is truly amazing to run across companies that are out there doing their absolute best to not only do well by EPA rules and regulations, but also to be those true ‘innovators’ that are lending far more than just a hand when it comes to protecting our environment. These innovators are making huge steps by creating products that are essential to business and industry.

 

When it comes to the world of building and construction, it’s the construction ‘site’ that’s seen as being a major contributor to 18680012pollution. Runoff from construction sites were once almost impossible to control; various hazardous materials would simply wash away into storm drains and create a lasting and devastating effect when it came to polluting local waterways and groundwater that would then proceed to destroy habitats.

 

Anything that was utilized to ‘clean’ the area – whether it be truck or wheelbarrow – was simply not enough to control the vast contamination that came from concrete pumps, mixers, and chutes. Which means, not only did the concrete residue flow into the environment, but also materials, such as mortar and stucco would washout and become huge wastewater problems. Because of these issues, the EPA focused their efforts on keeping Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans in compliance with the National Pollution Discharge Elimination Systems – part of the United States Clean Water Act.

 

But it’s not only the EPA that is doing the clear and concise thinking here. The problems in various industries remain; however, a company called Outpak is making extremely sure that the realm of building and construction improves on a daily basis.

 

Concrete washout systems are a true necessity for the 21st Century, and it was a man by the name of Bob Eason – who had been a contractor for over thirty years – who saw the issues that builders were coming up against when it came to protecting the environment18680011 by providing concrete washouts on construction sites. After doing a great deal of research on the issue, the absolute need for a cost-effective solution to this problem was seen – and Outpak Washout was born.

 

This portable disposable concrete washout system is the most cost effective, corrugated washout ever created. Made from heavy-duty, 350# water-treated Kraft fiberboard, the system is light, durable and folds flat for easy storage. With a four mil bag liner, the Outpak Washout offers all the functions that contractor’s need to make the job move effortlessly while taking care of the environment all at the same time. Easy set up, recyclable – the Outpak Washout System is offered in three sizes, specifically designed for pump trucks. And Outpak still provides two PVC washouts when higher volume is necessary.

 

This is the true definition of ‘forward thinking,’ which is what the construction industry has become known for in the past decade. In fact, this is one of only a few industries where creative minds are at work every day finding solutions to the largest environmental issues we’re dealing with, while still making sure that their products are state-of-the-art and meet all their customer’s needs.

 

Now, the Outpak Washout System is not the only ‘gem’ in the Outpak product line. As this incredible company continues to 18680152 (2)improve and update these particular products, they are also introducing other innovations to the market. And Outpak distributors from America to Australia and New Zealand are making sure that every contractor who’s struggling to find exactly what they need to get the job done efficiently and on budget – knows all about the name ‘Outpak.

 

As any contractor knows, there are enough issues to deal with onsite, so the very last thing they need to concentrate on is setting up a complicated washout for their equipment and tools. With Outpak Washout, the corrugated system brings simplicity. Its patented ‘folding’ design allows it to be stored flat, in the cab of a mixer truck, or strapped to the outside for quick deployment. A complete and effective solution for the containment of all hazardous washout materials – from concrete sediment to paint; dry wall mud to stucco; mortar, and more.

 

After set-up, which takes seconds, the Outpak Washout System takes between 10 to 15 washouts, depending on the size of the unit. And the heavy-duty, Kraft fiberboard offers the extreme durability to be left outside for the entire duration of short to medium-18680151term projects. Inclement weather is not an issue; even if the clouds go gray overhead, the poly bag can be closed tight so the washout material won’t take on additional water and extend the evaporation time. After the washout has been filled, the wastewater will evaporate leaving only solid concrete residue behind for easy disposal.

 

The PVC fabric is UV and weather-resistant which also gives the products a far longer shelf-life for the contractor; and no matter what the job size, Outpak has the washout any contractor needs. Job’s done? Clean-up is simple. The washout is disposed of using a standard landscape loader and dump truck right along with all of the other solid debris that’s left over once the hazardous wastewater has fully evaporated.

 

Forward thinking…innovation…solutions! Outpak has taken care of the wastewater ‘issues’ and is striving each and every day to provide the industry with the products they need to get the job done right!
