Removal of trash from construction sites is not only a difficult task but also it is hazardous. This is why trash chute installation in Miami has become popular today. This would save your time by allowing the workers to keep working rather than moving up and down frequently. Also, having bags of trash would take your working space at the same time holding the potential to hurt your workers. So, are you up for installing a trash chute? There are few tips to preserve safety at your construction site. Know them here…
When you are choosing to trash chute for your site, remember that short chutes would be smaller in diameter and it’s sufficient for it to be attached to the sides of the building. But, this is not the case with large chutes. They would essentially need a secondary frame to hold up the weight. A secondary frame is recommended for all the chutes of more than 1000 pounds. In this, you are recommended to use a winch or a lift to take the chute to the top floor.
Chute sections should be fitted tightly to each other. Such tight fittings are necessary to cut down the dust escaping as the trash is taken down. This would also cut down the degree of movement, as well as the wear to the chute when debris is loaded.
As dictated by the “Occupational Safety and Health Administration”, there should be a guard railing of 42 inches height in order to prevent the workers from falling into the trash chute. It’s to be noted that a fully grown man can fall into the largest tubes that are being used in most of the construction sites.
Almost all the trash chutes are coming with hopper options in order to allow for an opening on every level of the building. This would allow the workers to dump debris from any level instead of traveling to the chute point very frequently. Here in, you must select the chutes that are containing gateways over the hoppers for the purpose of keeping all the debris safely inside them.
