LBV/7 Semi-Open Top Litter BinProduct Code: LBV/7/WEB
The LBV/7 is a semi-open top litter bin with two apertures cut out of the lid, manufactured from durable glass fibre composite.
How is this bin manufactured?
This bin is manufactured from glass fibre composite (GFC); using a technique exclusively developed by Wybone, where a shaped wooden carcass is sprayed with fire retardant glass fibre polyester resins to produce a hardwearing unit that will never rust. Take a look at how our glass fibre composite products are made in our production video!
What are the advantages of GFC?
Glass fibre products offer substantial fire protection, conforming to BS 476 Part 7 and Part 6, fire rated at Class 1/0 Building Regulations. GFC also has a small carbon footprint due to the longevity of the product.
What sort of finish can I have this bin?
The LBV/7 is manufactured from glass fibre composite, which comes in a choice of finishes and colours.
Our standard finish is a PTX textured paint that gives a rough ‘sandpaper’ like textured finish, designed to prevent unwanted graffiti and posters being applied.
You could opt for a smoother pseudo-cast iron finish with only a slight texture and no roughness, or a Victoriana finish, which is the smoother option with only a slight texture and no roughness, with the addition of highlighted beading in gold or silver as standard.
Where should I put this bin?
The glass fibre manufacture makes this litter bin ideal for seaside towns as it’s unaffected by extreme weather conditions and salt water. The Victoriana finish gives a traditional look, which is perfect for heritage sites and town centres.
How do I install this bin?
The LBV/7 is designed with pre-drilled holes in four corners of the base for ground fixing – we recommend using RAWL bolts. These bolts are inserted into the ground where the bin is due to be installed; the bolts are then screwed on inside the unit. Unlike a permanent ground fixing, RAWL bolts allow street furniture to be moved easily.
How do I empty this bin?
The LBV/7 features a budget lock as standard, you can upgrade to a slam lock if required which locks the door automatically. Simply unlock the door on the side of the unit using a budget lock key which is provided, and remove the internal L17 Galvanised Steel Liner that can collect up to 112 litres of waste – this has two handles to make emptying an easier task.
Can I customise this bin?
The LBV/7 comes with a moulded ‘LITTER’ plate to the front and back as standard, available in gold or silver. Optional stubber plates can be fitted to prevent cigarettes being stubbed out on the lid of the bin. Additional aperture flaps can also be affixed to stop animals getting inside the unit.
