The elliptical shape of this high volume 100 Litre bin is ideal where there is heavy pedestrian flow or narrow footways. We think we were the first designers to bring out an oval shaped litter bin when we developed a suite of street furniture for Taunton in the 1990's. Since then its been much improved and refined into the bin it is today. We are flattered that the shape has been copied but the design not bettered!
Ellipse is extremely well made from thick gauge stainless steel - the lid is 8mm thick! It 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 pristine as possible. Starting price is £1050.
The beauty of Ellipse lies in that it has lots of customisable options (both aesthetic and practical) to really make the bin your own and to ensure it fits with your particular situation or circumstance.
Cigarette disposer in the lid, Aluminium liner, Cover plates to conceal grouting, Coloured legs or body, bolt on replaceable door. Surface fixed and 130 litre Extra capacity versions (down to ground).
And to help any reduce corrosion for particularly aggressive environments the bin can be supplied in 316 stainless steel.
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.
A note on colour - Although the bin can be supplied with a RAL powder coated finish throughout (not usually the lid) we can not make them with just powder coated legs or with just a powder coated body. So instead we offer colour in high quality vinyl (similar to vehicle graphics). We recognise it doesn’t sound that appealing - that is until you see one 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!
