The Finbin® City 140 belongs to the Finbin® Litter Bin Series and is part of the City family. The inspiration for this bin came from Hannu Kähönen’s original designs for the City 30 and 60 when they worked together to manufacture bins for the City of Helsinki in Finland. Finbin® worked exclusively with the authority using their expertise to design and manufacture the designer litter bins for the city’s public spaces. The project included thorough market research which investigated the easiest, safest and most efficient way of emptying bins. They also focused on developing a bin which was extra resistant against vandalism and other mechanical stress. Since then, FinBin has adapted the classic design to create the bigger City 140.
This cylindrical bin has an adaptable design, fitting into all outdoor areas. The front aperture is only 120mm high and has been precisely shaped and measured to keep rain and birds out. The unit can include a fire safety system (flap and fire-trace cable) which is available as an accessory.
The City 140 is made from stainless steel or powder coated galvanised steel, is 890mm high, 460mm wide and available as a 91-litre unit. If it is installed with a base, the total height increases to 960mm. The exterior can be stainless steel, metallic black or can be powder coated (RAL) to match existing outside environment. (Orders under 10 bins will incur an additional charge if the colour is other than RAL6005, RAL6009, RAL9005, RAL9006, DB703 or metallic black)
It is easily emptied by opening the lockable hinged front door, revealing a galvanised steel liner which is both easy and safe to empty. It can also be fitted with a swing lid. Fastening options include a metal base and a concrete base.
The City bins have already been installed in a number of city centres including: Helsinki (Finland), Bilbao (Spain), Malmö (Sweden), English Garden (Munich).
