Absorbent for Safety Equipment

Spill Kits

SpillShop carries an extensive range of spill kits, each of which contains absorbents which have been specially developed to contain and absorb spills of a particular type of liquid. We offer two types of spill kits: vehicle spill kits, which can fit inside most vehicle cabs and are ideal as a first response measure, and wheelie bin spill kits, which can be stored inside warehouses and facilities and easily moved around a site to the location of a spill.
