Product Detail

Overview

Smoothtubes are a range of components designed to replace the traditional steel and FRC garbage chute. Self cleaning and very quiet, Smoothtubes can be used for garbage, linen and as a recycling chute for high-rise apartment projects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All Smoothtubes are manufactured from 50% post-industrial recycled content and 50% virgin LLDPE (linear low density polyethylene). Each Smoothtubes section has a weight of approximately 15kg, which makes them easy to handle and install. Smoothtubes are designed and tested to eliminate the need for expensive and delicate acoustic lagging treatments. Smoothtubes feature an internal finish that has 80% less friction than steel, making them quieter and cleaner than traditional steel and cement chutes. Mounting points are heavy duty and flexible and are isolated to eliminate noise and vibration.

The products are used primarily in internal design applications, suited to residential and commercial installations. However, the product can be used externally due to their LLDPE's characteristic.
