Retro inspired Grit Bins from Wybone

February 28, 2017

As part of a new heritage style range, we have introduced Retro Grit Bins in four classic pastel shades. Scrupulously designed to offer strength and style to suit any environment.

Each unit is manufactured from a special mix of glass reinforced plastic, offering a level of durability that cannot be found in cheaper plastic units. The nature of the glass reinforced plastic ensures that the salt and adverse weather will not corrode the unit, so it will maintain its shiny exterior throughout its lifetime. The single-skin material is easy to clean and ideally suited for grit, sand or salt storage.

Choose from off white, pastel green, light grey and pastel blue; our new Grit Bins look at home in market towns, floral landscapes or even your own back garden. The pastel shades add a splash of colour to its surroundings, and allows the grit bin to look more like a feature piece than a functional salt storage unit.

Wybone Grit Bins are UV stabilised to ensure no discolouration or deterioration through long-term exposure, meaning they can remain in-situ all year round. As we are uniquely placed to offer a bespoke service, we are able to accommodate custom requests such as company colours.

Our Retro Grit Bins are designed with a sloped lid to deter littering and prevent heavy snow and ice accumulating on top of the unit. Fitted with stainless steel hinges to allow the front opening door to be completely lifted and reclined on the top, this makes filling and emptying the unit a simple task.

From concept to completion, 97% of our products are handmade at our headquarters here in Barnsley, and given that extra special Wybone treatment. We only work with the very best materials; the paint used on our grit bins are sourced from manufacturers who are more environmentally friendly and striving to minimise waste, complying with all relevant environmental regulations. BSI Standards are also very important to us, as we believe they show our commitment to quality standards.

We’re encouraging customers to repurpose their grit bins – check out our Pinterest page for some great alternative ideas!
