For nearly 35 years, BTL has designed, fabricated and constructed liners, containment systems, and covers for projects all over the world. In the 1980s, in order to offer a competitive high-strength product that could be prefabricated and installed quickly and cost effectively, BTL developed a stronger, thicker double-scrim RPE (reinforced polyethylene) material to replace the typical HDPE, PVC and EPDM liners products. With the success of the new product line, BTL expanded from its 4000 square foot facility to its current 84,000 square feet state of the art welding and fabrication facility. BTL’s product line applications include liners and containment systems for recreational ponds and lakes, ranches and farms, pits, waterscape projects, stormwater, greenhouse coverings, oil boom, secondary fuel/chemical containment and more. BTL’s certified welding technicians have installed project throughout North America and world wide. In addition, BTL has a complete tarp division that fabricates custom tarps and shade covers, for a host of applications. For more information, contact Jared Santoro at
