'Refuse Chute Systems' Hoppers

Every refuse hopper is fitted with vandal-resistant hinges requiring a special screwdriver to remove the door.  Generally the hoppers are manufactured from galvanised steel with a powder coated finish.  Alternatively we can offer stainless steel finish.

Steel Hoppers

Steel hoppers are manufactured from different materials as selected by the customer:

A)  Mild steel, powder coated.
B)  Stainless steel doors and chutes, with mild steel powder coated frames.
C)  All stainless steel.

All of these hoppers are normally supplied with welded handles and all mild steel components are galvanised or powder coated after manufacture.  Hoppers have double-skinned doors, incorporating a fire resistant core, and anti-vandal hinges as standard.

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.

Other Hoppers

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.

Appearance and Finish

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.

Installation

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.  

Accessories

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.
