LBV/FCB Cigarette End Pedestal BinProduct Code: LBV/FCB/WEB
The LBV/FCB Cigarette End Pedestal Bin is a large capacity, heavy duty cigarette bin which complements Wybone’s LBV range of street furniture.
How is this cigarette bin manufactured?
This free-standing cigarette bin is manufactured from glass fibre composite (GFC), using a technique exclusively developed by us at Wybone. The process sees a wooden carcass being assembled and sprayed with fire retardant glass fibre polyester resins to produce a hardwearing unit that will never rust. Watch how these products are made in our GFC production video!
What are the advantages of GFC?
Our glass fibre products have excellent durability; some of our units have been in situ for two decades. GFC products offer substantial fire protection, conforming to BS 476 Part 7 and Part 6, fire rated at Class 1/0 Building Regulations. This material also has a small carbon footprint due to the longevity of the product.
What’s included with the LBV/FCB?
As this bin is made from glass fibre composite, it’s available in a choice of finishes and colours. Our standard finish is a PTX textured paint that gives a rough ‘sandpaper’ like texture, 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.
As well as your choice of finishes and colours, this bin comes with ‘No Smoking’ perspex plates fitted to the front and back as standard and a large flat ashtray that sits flush within the top.
Where should I put this cigarette bin?
Glass fibre composite is unaffected by adverse weather conditions, which means it can be placed in coastal seaside towns and in busy city centres and will remain unaffected for years to come. The Victoriana finish gives a traditional look, which is perfect for market towns and heritage sites.
How do I install this bin?
The LBV/FCB has a pre-drilled base for ground fixing and can be secured to the ground using RAWL bolts. Firstly, the base of the bolt has to be submerged into the ground where the bin will be situated. Once the bin is positioned on the holes, fix the bolts into the base and tighten to secure into the ground. Unlike a permanent ground fixing, RAWL bolts allow street furniture to be moved if required.
How many cigarettes does this hold?
We advise that this cigarette bin has the capacity to hold approximately 1000 cigarette butts before it will need to be emptied. We must also advise that this number provides a guide only and for added safety and security, it is always a good idea to regularly check up on cigarette units to ensure they are safe and being correctly used.
How do I empty this cigarette bin?
The LBV/FCB has a hidden lock at the side of the unit which can be unlocked using a budget lock key, Insert the key and turn, this releases the ashtray top and provides access to the internal liner which has 12 litre capacity.
Can cigarette butts be recycled?
Cigarettes are one of the world’s biggest plastic pollutants but can actually be recycled. However, there aren’t currently many companies who recycle cigarette butts, but as long as they are disposed of correctly in a dedicated cigarette bin or ashtray, they are doing less harm than being left on the floor to degrade.
