Big Bin: A container to last

  • If we analyze its basic structure, the container is constructed from a double ring structure, with the ring belt as horizontal axis and the structure of the bottom rail form a vertical ring. Both together, give the whole a big resistance to impacts.
  • Its centerpiece, the belt, is constructed with a large safety factor, allowing you to load more than 3 tons independently; much more load you have to load in any circumstance.
  • The cable of the pedal is made of braided steel, coated with a sliding protector which causes it to move smoothly inside the cover.
    At the same time, the cover has an interlaced steel which makes it a much more durable assembly.
  • The containers are exposed to a lot of dirt, so the Big Bin was designed with smooth and convex shapes, with a dual purpose: protecting the internal mechanisms and facilitate cleaning.

Designed for maximum comfort

  • The pedal has a multiplier which makes movement with the minimum run, it can achieve a maximum opening and comfortable.
    It is built separate, so always keep to the correct height for use.
  • The opening of the container is its interaction with the user primary. Therefore there are two cylinders to the opening assist, open with a force of only 1Kg. , So the pedal is not absolutely necessary.
  • Selecting waste is not an easy task sometimes. The graphics that are installed in the Big Bin make recycling easier with many examples of residues, and resolve Frequently Asked Questions.
  • Although you can see it, the noise has been one of the key factors in comfort.
    The Polyethylene is manufactured from, simplified mechanisms and cushions, make discharges quieter.
