ACT Bins manufactures hooklift bins in various sizes from four cubic metres up to 40 with four-five and six- millimetre walls. This aims to provide superior strength and durability.
According to ACT Bins, its bins are some of the strongest on the market, with floors, doors and rows of 100 by 80 millimetres and a 100-by-100 millimetre channel down the sides and under the floor.
All the reinforcing joins along both sides are fully welded and have a 10-millimetre plate added to each side of the joins for extra strength.
ACT Bins uses a 50-millimetre steel shaft for the hooklift pin and 22-millimetre side plates and 10-millimetre gussets to reinforce the front A-frame. The door hinges are 30-millimetre steel shafts. The locking mechanism has 12-millimetre steel plates. For extra security, the company notes a ratchet lock can also be added at minimal cost. Both sides of the bin have 100-millimetre chamfers
along the full length of the floor to help reduce dirt or contents build-up. As an optional extra, the company can accommodate any AS2700 colour choice with two top coats of high-quality industrial enamel paint. Stencilling and welded serial numbers can also be arranged.
All bins are welded to Australian standards and available with a range of modifications to suit a customer’s requirements, such as rated crane lift pad eyes, oversize fork pockets or top swing watertight doors.
