500 litre steel body


Hot-Dipped Galvanised Steel along with internally welded seams ensures robust protection in the harshest of environments and protects the container from internal corrosion due to residual waste being caught in exposed corners. Internally welded seams stop water penetration, preventing the corrosion that plagues less well-made metal waste containers. With full EN840 certification, they will give you exceptional lifetime value with limited downtime,
Internally welded seams stop water penetration, preventing corrosion.
The top frame is a complete welded tube, not split or open bend, with a diameter of 20mm. The use of the complete welded tube is very important here, as by using a complete tube there are no holes or gaps in which waste can leak into the top frame itself when the container is lifted on emptying.

All four castors are either 200mm or 160mm Steel centred wheels manufactured with needle bearings, grease and rubber optimised for performance steel centred rubber-tyred swivel castors, two of which are fitted with trailing brakes (Brakes are press to lock, press to release) are bolted on for an easy replacement.
