Here is an Ellipse timber bin with untreated timber. It will be left to weather naturally into a silver grey colour.
Lb10t Ellipse timber
The elliptical shape of this high volume 100 Litre bin is ideal where there is heavy pedestrian flow or narrow footways. Ellipse timber is extremely well made and comes with a durable heavy duty polyethylene liner as standard that is accessed by a lockable hinged front door. Optional aluminium liners are less durable but are fire resistant. Cam locks are in stainless steel. Inner plastic bag liners (not supplied) used in combination with the rigid liner is common practice. The bin is supplied with with an electropolished finish as standard as this helps keep the steel looking as prstine as posssible. Starting price is £1295 .
Cigarette disposer in the lid, Aluminium liner, coloured legs. To help any reduce corrosion for particularly aggressive environments the bin can be supplied in 316 stainless steel. Surface fixed and 130 lite Extra capacity versions (down to ground).
Standard below ground baseplate fixing 180mm below finished ground level or Surface mounted providing your surface is suitable (like concrete or timber decking) and your environment is low risk from theft. We recommend using tamper proof security bolts anyway. Also bear in mind that you’re surface does need to be reasonably level so the bin doesn’t appear to tilt.
We use top quality FSC Iroko firstly because it is sustainable and as it is one of the most durable hardwoods available in the UK. It doesn’t really splinter or warp like some other hardwoods can when used outdoors such Oak and Beech.
As all timber Iroko will weather and lose its golden surface colour so if this isn’t the look you are after there are a few alternatives that help to sustain colour. The first is oiling (with teak oil); second is staining (with a quality stain) and lastly there is occasional pressure washing/sanding to restore the colour. They all work but have maintenance liabilities. Loudy is supplied with (teak) oiled Iroko as standard.
A note on colour - the bin can be supplied with RAL powder coated legs or in high quality vinyl (similar to vehicle graphics). We recognise vinyl doesn’t sound that appealing - that is until you see an example for real as it looks a very smart and professional finish. There are other advantages as well such as much cheaper refurbishment costs down the line when powder coating may chip or look a bit tired where you can replace the vinyl on site (without uprooting the bin) and even in a different colour or with advertising!

This Ellipse timber has an electropolished finish to help it resist corosion from salts within the coastal air.
Another example of an electropolished finish. It is a bit brighter than the standard grained/dull polish effect but it is easier to keep the bin clean and looking good. Electropolishing is a popular option for bins that are located in streets where there are fast food outlets. The timber in this example has been stained.
