GARBAGE CANS AND BICYCLE BOXES

Garbage can and bicycle boxes
made of metal
Everyone knows the problem in the entrance area: garbage cans, bicycles, strollers, wheelchairs, walkers, brooms, shoes, children’s toys, etc. should be banned from direct view. The garbage can and bicycle boxes from Gartenmetall® can solve this problem while significantly enhancing the appearance of the entrance area.
We offer two different trash can systems that fit all standard trash cans: The ZITTAU trash can box is designed as a single or double box with classic hinged doors. More convenient to use and much more spacious, on the other hand, are our XANTEN garbage can and bicycle boxes, which can be conveniently opened and closed with sliding doors. Here even bulky bikes find a weather-protected place to stay! The boxes are available in rust-red Corten steel, rotex-ground stainless steel and color-coated stainless steel in DB and RAL color shades.
All boxes from Gartenmetall® are characterized by solid construction, individual manufacturing as well as stable and excellent workmanship. Special designs are possible at any time.
Trash can and bicycle box
XANTEN with sliding doors
Our “Big” is a very sturdy box for the entrance area for storing (several) garbage cans, bicycles or other utensils. The box is opened and closed with sliding doors, which are easy to operate thanks to the ingenious rail system. In addition, the sliding doors ensure that no rails interfere with the chest area during filling, making the contents easily accessible. The scope of delivery includes a rotary knob for opening and closing. This is prepared for a standard cylinder lock, which can be combined with the house locking system if necessary. The cylinder lock must be provided by the customer.
The XANTEN box is available with 2, 3 or 4 sliding doors, each in two different sizes. The smallest box can accommodate a maximum of 2 garbage cans of 120 liters, the largest box can accommodate 4 garbage cans of 240 liters or 2 bicycles. By default, the doors are closed, optionally we offer doors with perforated plate. These provide good ventilation, but allow more rainwater to penetrate. Important: The box protects the contents from rainwater, but is not completely waterproof due to its design!
The special design of the XANTEN garbage can and bicycle boxes and their unique construction is protected at the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA) and provided with a far-reaching design protection. Made by Gartenmetall®. During assembly, we recommend the assistance of our service.
Details garbage can box
Our garbage can boxes XANTEN made of metal are characterized by numerous thoughtful details, but which make it easier for you to use in everyday life:
Filling box XANTEN
as a bicycle garage
Especially high-value bikes such as racing bikes and e-bikes should not be left unprotected outdoors. The latter are often too heavy to transport to the basement. Here, our trash can box is the ideal solution as an elegant bicycle garage in the garden or in the house entrance area. The metal bike box can be locked and thus offers not only protection from the weather, but also safe storage against theft. Two doors can always be slid open at the same time for easy handling.
Trash can box ZITTAU
With revolving doors
Our classic ZITTAU is a high-quality processed and very stable trash can box, which can be used in many ways except for trash cans. The bins have a black lockable handle for opening and closing the door, which can be folded flush. Delivery includes catch rope and wheel recess for easy handling and convenient filling of the trash cans. As a standard we supply single boxes for 120 liters, 140 liters or 240 liters as well as double boxes for 2x 120 liters, 2x 140 liters or 2x 240 liters. All boxes are completely pre-assembled. The bottom is open except for the wheel recess, optionally the container can be bolted to the bottom. However, this is normally not necessary due to the high dead weight.
Note: Please specify the opening direction of the door when ordering. By default, the opening of single boxes is DIN right, i.e. the axis of rotation is on the right and the door handle on the left.
Options for trash can box
Not all garbage cans are the same: To ensure that your garbage cans are not only stored in a visually appealing way, but also that filling them is child’s play, we have worked out various options for you, e.g. filling from above when emptying from the front. In addition, you can also prepare the functional element visually appealing, for example, with perforated metal doors and greenable flat roof.
with perforated door
For better ventilation or loosened up appearance, we offer the garbage can boxes with perforated metal doors. However, this also allows more moisture to penetrate inside. So please choose this option only if you want to hide trash can in it visually appealing.
with greenable flat roof
Instead of a closed flat roof, we also offer the option with a green roof. To do this, the rim was raised by 10 cm, so you can put enough substrate for drought-tolerant plants. However, the external dimensions of the containers remain the same as the standard boxes with closed roof. Two holes in the back corners ensure that rainwater or leftover irrigation water drains away to the inside, where it seeps into the ground. To prevent substrate from getting inside, we recommend placing a fleece underneath.
With hinged lid
The hinged roof is an additional option for boxes with hinged doors and is used for convenient waste filling directly from the top. The lid is held in final position with moment-controlled hinges and damped during opening and closing with gas springs and rubber buffers.
Note: The folding roof is suitable mainly for taller people. At the customer’s request, it can also be mounted so that it can be opened from the rear instead of the front. Then filling from the house side and garbage can removal from the street side is possible.
