Linen and Trash Chutes
Easy to edit CSI 3 part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify prefabricated metal Linen and Trash Chutes with intake and discharge doors.
Includes chutes in galvanized steel or stainless steel, with stainless steel having higher resistance to corrosion.
Most chutes are considered shafts by all building codes and therefore must receive automatic fire sprinklers.
Linen chutes typically utilize inclined rolling doors that close automatically in event of a fire. Trash chutes typically utilize hinged hopper-type doors that close after each use, to minimize odors.
Trash chutes require a flushing water head to clean the interior surfaces and typically include a disinfecting and sanitizing unit.
