Linen Chutes

Wilkinson Hi-Rise linen chutes are constructed of #16 gauge aluminized steel, galvanneal and several different grades of stainless steel. Options for thicker gauge steel are also available. All of our equipment carries a one (1) year warranty. Linen chutes are made to accommodate even the busiest hospital or hotel. The intake doors have also been specially designed to prevent broken closures.

All Wilkinson Hi-Rise trash chutes are 24” in diameter but can be customized to 18”, 20”, 28”, 30” & 36” options,

The standard linen chute intake door is 21” x 21” side-hinged hand operated with a 180 degree opening. All doors are self-closing and have a clear opening for bagged or bundled linens.

A 24” diameter vent will be installed 4 feet above roof with a metal explosion cap.

Floor frames will be fabricated using 1 ½”x1 ½”x 3/16” angle steel.

½” IPS 165 degree sprinkler head with shield will be installed above the top intake, and additional sprinklers and shields will be installed at every other intake, as indicated by local fire codes.

The standard linen chute discharges into a recommended hopper with a 24″ x 30″, top hinged, counterbalanced stainless steel door bearing 1-1/2 Hr. 250° F U.L. “B” label with fusible link. The hopper also has a reinforced bottom with #13 gauge impact plate and is supported with a 2″ pipe pedestal and equipped with 2″ IPS drain flange for connection by plumber.

Optional: To prevent unauthorized use of chute, electric locks (EI), keyed cylinder or card access locks can be added to the intake doors.
