The 800 series bin surround design dates back before 1988?
This design was one of the first bin surrounds Draffin started producing back then when the Draffin Brothers took over Inwel Products. Since then many have tried to copy the 800 series, but none can match the value, quality and variety of options Draffin offer on this iconic range. This makes 800 series bin surrounds a professional purpose built product, and every one custom made to suit its application.
The Draffin Street Furniture 800 series Bin Surround remains “best in class”.
As simple as the 800 series bin surround design is, Draffin Street Furniture offers options that transform the design into a bin suited to any application, and styled to suit where they are installed.
Take a look at these featured 800 series bin surrounds:
This is the classic 800 series format found across Australian municipalities. The sloped cover is chosen to keep the weather and wildlife at bay. Round recycle and frogmouth openings as standard. Meanwhile perforation pattern “A” is selected for maximum aeration of the bin to stop odours from building up. Fully powdercoated in any colour, a tri-key slam lock and stainless steel levelling adjustment straps, as standard.
The all stainless steel version of the sloped cover 800 series is also very popular among Draffin Street Furniture customers. Stainless steel has that clean aesthetic appeal, and is ideal in harsher environments like coastal areas. This custom 800 series has no perforations but does have laser cut logos and vertical door signage to indicate the waste type.
Another popular choice is the canopy cover. This one here has a stainless steel canopy and powdercoated panels with an all weather signage decal. Canopy covers offer better bin access (front and back) and are ideal installed out in the open rather than against a wall. Pattern “C” is chosen for panel perforations.
Multi-bay bin surrounds are becoming more and more popular as Australia ramps up its recycling industry. This striking “high pyramid” triple bay offers an organics waste bin to capitalise on this abundant and valuable waste resource where the bin surround is installed. Case studies have shown users will use organics bins correctly when they are offered. Educational signage can help if they are unsure which bin to use. High Pyramid covers offer recycle and frogmouth access with 1 – 4 openings.
The curved cover is an alternative cover style to the sloped cover, also offering frogmouth and smaller circle openings (suited to recycling), this one with stainless steel optioned also. This smart looking dual bay 800 series has an optional heavy-duty ashtray insert, keeping hot ash out of the bin, and is easily serviced by removing the large internal liner and emptying into the bin when they are serviced. Perforation pattern “G” features on the panels of this model.
Flat covers are made from mirror polished stainless steel for easy cleaning and are scratch resistant. They are ideal when placed indoors and undercover areas, giving 360 degree access to the opening. In this example, the customer has opted for no perforations, and doesn’t require levelling straps as the bin surround is mounted on a level surface.
This bin set (not joined together) has low pyramid and sloped covers, and while both bins appear very different from each other, still match as they use the same perforation pattern. Four neoprene rubber gaskets are used in the openings of the pyramid cover to keep the weather out of the recycled bin. You can option 1 to 4 openings on the low pyramid covers.
Most commonly, 800 series bins are ordered in 120lt and 240lt sizes, but with small alterations they can cater for other wheelie bin sizes. 800 series bin surrounds can be specified with up to 3 or more bays. Multi-waste streams are becoming more and more common in public places, and the 800 series bin surround makes it easy to add bin bays to cover all your waste types.
One such option available that will greatly effect the appearance of the 800 series bin surround is panel perforations. Primarily used to circulate air when the wheelie bin is not frequently serviced, the perforations also serve as a styling option. Draffin Street furniture offers a range of standard perforation options to choose from. The options can be found listed in a guide on every 800 series product page listing.
Signage and laser cut logos can be added to perforated panels. This information can be found below in the signage tab.
Covers are important, and need to be considered carefully, based on where and how you intend to use the bin surround. Will the bin be placed outdoors, or under cover? Will the bin need multiple access openings or will it be installed against a wall where access is likely to only be required from the front? From there, there is several options available to suit each application.
Choose frogmouth or recycling openings. Public recycling waste bins usually provide smaller openings to limit the size and type of waste that can be placed inside.
You can choose what materials the bin surround will be made of, and again consideration needs to be given to the location of the bin surround.
316 grade stainless steel
If corrosion is apparent in the location due to environmental conditions like coastal settings where salt blows in from the ocean, then perhaps a corrosion resistive material should be considered. Stainless steel is best in these conditions. In fact 316 grade stainless steel is considered “marine grade” and will survive coastal installation almost indefinitely.
304 grade stainless steel
But perhaps you choose to use stainless steel simply for aesthetic reasons. Then 304 grade stainless steel may be more suited in this circumstance. 304 grade stainless steel is ideal for less demanding environments and indoor applications.
To learn more about what stainless steel is right for your application, Draffin Street Furniture offers a Stainless Steel Guide. Our sales staff are also happy to answer any questions you may have.
In most cases, zinc plated mild steel is used when powdercoated finishes are required. There are many powdercoat colours and finishes available, chosen when the bin surround needs to stand out in the crowd, make it easily identifiable, or perhaps to match in with the styling of the location. Powdercoat finishes are heavy duty, scratch resistant and can be specified with an anti-graffiti coating, to make removing graffiti easier. Covers can be colour coded to suit the waste type and you can add colour face plates or decals to further make waste types obvious to the user.
You can choose what materials to use on both the covers and the panels, with the exception of flat covers that use mirror polished 316 grade stainless steel, proven highly scratch resistant for the application, and easy to clean.
Waste separation starts at the bin. Make it easy to identify the type of waste the bin accepts by adding signage. A standard decal guide is available for you to choose appropriate signage for your bin surrounds. It lists decals and other signage options available including sign plates, laser cut signage and custom options.
As standard, all 800 series bin surrounds come with an 8mm tri-key slam lock. Accessed only by authorised people with the special 8mm tri-key. This stops public access to the wheelie bin while the lock allows the lock tab to spring back into the locking position when closed.
