The Continental range of wheeled litter bins are established as the industry leading standard for waste and recycling containers.
The smallest bin in the Continental range, the 500 litre bin is ideal for both indoor or outdoor use with the ability to fit through standard doorways.
With its large capacity, the bin reduces the collection frequency required for smaller bins whilst still offering the same unrivalled manoeuvrability and durability.
The key benefits to owning of our Taylor bins are complete durability, low maintenance, fire containment, long life, vandal proof and low cost of ownership compared to similar bins.
All bins in the Taylor Continental range are EN840 Compliant with the exception of the 500 Litre container. EN 840 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 Taylor 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 reciever) or by the DIN points (trunnions). 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 Taylor 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 our Taylor Continental bins are independently tested every six months to ensure they meet the highest safety standards within the industry. Please see the video below for more information regarding EN 840 Standard regulations.
Key product features:
- Comb lifting bar (Frontal reciever) to EN840-2 regulations
- EN14803 Compliant RFID chip receptacle under comb bar
- Simple, robust steel hinge bar secured by split pin
- Double skinned rotationally moulded lid which is both durable and UV resistant. Available in a choice of colours
- The lid recovers even from extensive deformation unlike injection moulded plastic lids
- Design avoids water draing into bin, unlike some alternatives
- Handles designed to EN 840 for ergonomic handling and health & safety by keeping hands away from lifting gear
- The bin is a true 500 litre capacity to the EN840 standard whereas flat based bins fall short
- 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 is tested for 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
Castor height: 200mm
