Chute Systems


Chute Section

Chute Systems allow for linen or waste materials to be centrally disposed of saving time and money. Our trash chutes are fabricated in-house from 16 gauge steel. Individually welded sections are customized to meet floor heights with intakes at each requested floor. Standard but customizable 10′ throats integrate to each intake section to accommodate intake doors.

Chute Intake

Chute intake doors are either bottom or side hinged, ASTM A 240 / 240M, UL Rated, fabricated from type 304 stainless steel, and 1 ½ hour fire rated with a 30-minute temperature rise of 250 degrees Fahrenheit. They have stainless steel hinges with self-closing, self-latching functionality, rubber baffles, and embossed trim plates for “Rubbish”, “Recycle”, or “Linen”. Intake doors come in several sizes.
