Hybrid Mental Health Bin – 28 Litre CapacityProduct Code: RFG4/28/HY/MHSB/WEB
The Hybrid Mental Health Bin with 28 litre capacity is a purpose-designed waste unit for use in hospitals and clinical settings where added safety and security is required. This small sackholder is at home in mental health facilities, with many features that offer superior security whilst still maintaining a stylish design that fits comfortably in wards, patient rooms and clinical areas.
Clinical or domestic waste can be deposited in the unit using the foot pedal operated chute. Pressing the foot pedal opens the chute which has been expertly designed to ensure no rubbish can be retrieved from the bin once it has been deposited. A gas strut fitted to the back of the unit guarantees that the lid closes slowly and minimises any chance of accidents.
The push lock frame ensures the bin is secured and can only be accessed by those that are permitted to empty the units. To empty the bin, the frame must be unlocked and the lid reclined completely to lift out the waste bag. Our larger 42 and 80 litre units feature front opening bodies for easy access to the bag.
Folded edges on the lid of the bin are used to completely cover the chute operating system and ensure that there is no visibility of the inner waste bag. All moving parts on this unit are enclosed to secure any possible ligature points.
The sackholder has a completely enclosed back to ensure no access to moving parts.
The Mental Health Bin is manufactured from a combination of galvanised steel and aerospace grade ABS plastic. The lid and body are powder coated galvanised steel which offers superior levels of corrosion resistance, and the base unit is manufactured from ABS plastic to keep the unit wet room safe and non-marking to walls and floors.
Built in castors make the unit easy to manoeuvre and the fixed body can be removed for maintenance and deep cleaning when necessary. The powder coated steel contains silver ion anti-microbial coating to reduce the risk of harmful bacteria spreading on the surface of the bin.
As with all Wybone sackholders, the Mental Health Bin conforms to the fire safety code HTM0503.
The lid and base of this unit can be coloured to suit your waste stream, ensuring the correct waste is placed inside the bin. Choose black for domestic waste; yellow for hazardous waste; tiger stripe for offensive waste; orange for infectious waste; green for recycling; or white to define your own waste stream.
Encapsulated Pedal –
To offer an added level of safety, a completely enclosed plastic foot pedal can be added to the unit, reducing the risk of possible ligature points. Manufactured from ABS grade plastic, the foot pedal unit has faced rigorous testing to ensure strength and durability.
Butterfly Sack Retention System –
A galvanised steel butterfly retention frame can be built in to the top of the bin to assist with holding the waste bag in place. This completely reduces the chances of pieces of the bag being pulled from the unit and used in a harmful way. This additional mechanism is powder coated to match the colour of the bin.
The unit shown is a 28 litre version of our Hybrid Mental Health Bin. This unit is also available with a capacity of 42 and 80 litres. The 42 litre Mental Health Bin offers a small but wide unit with a large aperture, capable of holding medium volumes of waste. This bin is ideal for placing in toilet areas or patient rooms. The 80 litre Hybrid Mental Health bin is more suited to high volume waste areas such as busy wards and treatment areas.
