Chutes from SFSP Lebanon are very convenient, simple and low cost method of controlling and disposing of refuse and linen. Chutes meet the most stringent requirements of environmental health and safety. Chutes are used as original equipment in new buildings, such as: Hotels, Hospitals, High Rises and Residential Towers.
Choices of Materials
SFSP Lebanon provides refuse and linen chutes from the following high quality materials:
– Stainless Steel: SFSP strongly recommends the use of stainless steel for the manufacture of refuse chutes. Stainless is highly resistant to the humidity, acid and alkalis contained within refuse.
– Galvanized Steel: Galvanized steel does not have the same protective characteristics of stainless steel, yet, it is used extensively for refuse chutes.
Material Thickness & Gauges
SFSP Lebanon provides the following material gauges:
- 1.5mm (16 Gauge)
- 2.0mm (14 Gauge)
- 3.0mm (11 Gauge) (when specified)
The majority of refuse chutes are fitted internally within a building. SFSP Lebanon chutes can either pass through the floor slab of the building or be fixed within a vertical shaft.
SFSP Lebanon refuse chutes can be fixed externally to most types of building, particularly useful when a refuse chute has to be provided after the building has been finished or where it is not possible to replace in the same location. External refuse chutes can be single or double skinned.
