Internally welded seams prevent internal corrosion, whilst the hard-wearing galvanised steel body and base make for a durable, long-lasting container that delivers exceptional lifetime value when compared to plastic or alternative steel containers.

The key benefits to owning continental 1100 trade waste bins are they completely durable, low maintenance, and fire containment, and long life, vandal proof and low cost of ownership compared to similar bins.
All the Continental range are EN840 Compliant with EN 840 which is the recognised European standard for mobile waste containers of various capacities and specifications. By ensuring your bin(s) are compliant with these standards, you are able to help ensure the safety of employees and the general public. All continental bins comply with parts 2, 5 and 6 of the EN840 standard.

This ensures that all 4 wheeled containers will operate correctly whilst being emptied on a refuse truck if the container is picked up by a comb bar (frontal receiver) or by the DIN points (trunion).

The handles are placed in the optimal areas for ergonomics and manoeuvrability of the containers, whilst still retaining a safe distance from any moving parts on the refuse truck.

The castors fitted to the bins are tested for both strength and rolling resistance to ensure you get a long life from the bin, yet the bin is still compliant with all health and safety recommendations for manoeuvring wheeled objects. All  Continental bins are independently tested every six months to ensure they meet the highest safety standards within the industry. Please see the video for more information regarding EN 840 Standard regulations.

Key product features:
  • Comb lifting bar (Frontal receiver) to meet EN840-2 regulation
  • Simple, robust steel hinge bar secured by a split pin
  • The double skinned rotationally moulded lid is both durable and UV resistant. Available in a choice of colours
  • The lid recovers even from extensive deformation unlike injection moulded plastic lids
  • The design avoids water draining into the bin, unlike some alternatives
  • Handles designed to EN 840 for ergonomic handling and health & safety by keeping hands away from lifting gear
  • The continental trade bin is a true litre capacity complying with EN840 standard whereas flat based bins fall short of this compliancy.
Steel centred wheels manufactured with needle bearings, grease and rubber optimised for performance
Two foot operated, trailing braking wheels at the front with two swivel wheels at the back. The foot brake has been tested to 20,000 operations
Draw depth and shape of pressings optimised to avoid buckling or distortion of bin on impact or lifting when fully laden. Other poorly designed bins fail to get this right and after usage the frame can badly distort beyond the lid, thus allowing water in
