Ealing / Ground Floor Hopper
The Ealing is the largest hopper which can be installed in a 600mm i.d.
chute, or it can also be used as a direct feed hopper. The large capacity of the
Ealing allows residents to use standard issue black sacks.
Hoppers can be specially made in other size, to fit non-standard
openings of old refuse chutes.
For situations where height constraints make hoppers impracticable,
side-hung, self-closing doors can be supplied.
Stainless steel hopper doors are normally supplied with a dull polished
finish. Mild steel hopper doors are normally powder-coated silver grey, but other
paint finishes are available on request.
After removal of the door from the frame using a special key, the steel
hopper frame is fixed by means of bolts in the side of the chute or face fixed via a front
mounting plate to the wall.
1) Face plates in either stainless steel or mild steel can be
supplied for front fixing of hoppers and are available in many sizes to suit requirements.
2) Locks can fitted to hoppers.
3)For hoppers fitted into brickwork openings for direct feed into a bin,
stainless steel hopper extensions can be supplied. Extensions are available in any
length from 150mm to 800mm. The foot of the extension should not be less than 50mm
above the top of the bin.
