Benefits of Continental  1280 Ltr Recycling Bin

All Containers are internally seam welded to ensure water-tightness and prevent the ingress of waste into the joins thus preventing premature corrosion.

All Containers are fully hot-dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461:1999 after assembly to ensure a hard-wearing and corrosion-resistant coating.

All Continental Galvanised Steel Recycling bins are fully EN 840 compliant (where applicable) to certify a safe and quality product is supplied and to ensure the product is compatible with all known lifting devices.

The patented top frame (where applicable) is an unbroken pressed steel tube designed to give maximum rigidity to the container during lifts for a longer life span.

The patented comb bar is Rolled section tube with a step profile to ensure maximum rigidity and safe and efficient fit on vehicle lifts. The lifting bar must integrate with all refuse collection vehicles meeting the specification in the European Standard EN 15.

All four castors are 200mm steel centred rubber-tyred swivel castors, two of which are fitted with trailing brakes (Brakes are press to lock, press to release)

Lids are Rotary-molded double skin plastic with a minimum weight of 5.0 kilo manufactured in an aluminium mould for a superior finish.

Colour Options: Container can be powder coated using polyester powder, which is baked and cured in a controlled oven process.

Available in a Range of Colours and Lid options.

The continental recycling bin is a true litre capacity complying with EN840 standard whereas flat based bins fall short of this compliance.
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. Castors are bolt-on for easy replacement 
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
