GFC Large Closed Top Litter Bin - 224 Litre Capacity
Product Code: WYLBV24
The GFC Large Closed Top Litter Bin features a 224 litre capacity and is a popular choice in coastal areas as Glass Fibre Composite (GFC) is unaffected by extreme temperature changes or by salt water so will therefore not corrode when located close to the sea. It is also environmentally friendly with 65% of its construction coming from renewable sources.
The bin is available with a choice of either a textured, smooth or Victoriana finish. The textured finish uses PTX textured paint to give a rough finish not too dissimilar to sand paper and has been designed to prevent unwanted posters and graffiti being applied to the bin. The smooth finish uses a smoother pseudo-cast iron finish with only a slight texture and no roughness.
The Victoriana finish uses the smooth finish with only a slight texture and no roughness with the addition of highlighted beading as standard to give a classic Victorian style appearance. The Victoriana finish is a popular choice with heritage sites and town/city centres.
The bin features two large openings which makes it ideal for busy locations such as sea front promenades, high streets etc. If the bin is to be placed up against a wall, the back aperture can be blanked off. As standard the bin features two ‘LITTER’ plates with one on the front and one on the back of the bin (not shown in the image).
The standard bin is supplied with a hinged door fitted with a budget lock, however the option to upgrade to a slam lock is available. Slam lock is a stainless steel lock which is easily opened using a square T key and closes with a push of the door against a spring loaded boss. To make emptying the bin easier, the bin is supplied with twin galvanised steel liners that lift out.
A choice of two optional ashtrays is available for this bin and these are fitted at the factory. The circular Easyfit ashtray features a spring loaded butterfly bottom for quick emptying into the liner below. The standard ashtray top features a counter balance emptying system with a recessed drop area for cigarette and cigar butts. Both ashtrays are available in either gold or silver finishes.
A stainless steel stubber plate can be added to the lid of the bin and this has been designed to encourage smokers to use it to stub out their cigarettes instead of using the body of the bin and leaving unsightly marks on it. The stubber plate can be specified with either ashtray option.
The bin is supplied with a pre-drilled base that allows it to be securely fixed to the ground using RAWL bolts. Alternatively ground anchor feet are available which allow you to site the bin in freshly laid concrete. The feet bolt to the bottom of the bin and once the bin is in place and the concrete has cured, the bin is securely held in position.
