Ventilation of bin rooms in blocks of flats should vent any odorous or dense flammable gases that may escape from the waste. This is stated in Approved Document B Fire Safety, volume 2 of the Government’s building regulations .
Vents should also be small enough that vermin that may be attracted to the contents of the bins cannot get in.
Louvred Doors achieve both of these requirements and ensure that tenants and bin staff that use the bin store room are not greeted with bad smells or surprise guests.
A very popular, yet flawed, option for louvred Bin Store Doors are slats. Slats can be any material and generally clip into the door. At Warrior Doors we have had to replace many slatted Bin Store Doors as although they are great for ventilation they are not suitable for security.
With minimal force and easy to access tools slats can be unclipped from the door creating a gap that an intruder can use to reach around inside and open the door. Watch the video to see how easy it is to break into a slatted louvred door.
Manufactured from high quality stainless steel, our secure Bin Store Doors feature punched louvred panels which help to circulate airflow around the waste storage space as well as maintaining required security levels.
We also offer options of polished stainless steel or any available RAL colour powder coating to ensure your door matches your premises.
