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.
