New Everglade Litter Bin is an exceptionally robust unit made from 5mm-thick steel with an Armortec® Coating.
5mm thick steel is extremely strong, and we believe it to be unprecedented at this competitive price point. Most steel litter bins have a thickness of 2-3mm. For comparison, a newly-minted British pound coin is 3.15mm deep - 37% thinner than the slats of Everglade.
Armortec Coating ensures that Glasdon steel products stand up to the effects of British weather. In tests performed in our Quality Assurance laboratory, samples of standard galvanised steel - one treated with Armortec Coating, the other with standard paint - were repeatedly impacted with a metal hammer, and then subjected to six months in a salt spray cabinet, a very aggressive test designed to accelerate the corrosion process. In this simulated long-term outdoor environment, the sample with Armortec Coating lasted five times longer than the painted steel.
Everglade Litter Bin is available as a 60ltr or 85ltr waste container, in black or deep green, and with a choice of sack retention system or steel liner.
