Homeowners like their waste bin to have a lid that controls odours. What they don’t like is having to touch the lid every time they open their bin unit. Not only is it inconvenient, but it can also be unhygienic. That is why many homeowners resort to throwing the bin lid away in frustration, but they’re then left to deal with visible waste and odours.
The cleverly designed Concelo Active Lid resolves both issues for the homeowner: the Active Lid is hidden from sight at the top of the bin inside the cabinet and drops down to close over the buckets when the unit is closed, sealing in odours. The motion of the lid is synchronised with the opening and closing action of the unit, which lets the homeowner keep their hands free to simply drop waste into the bin.
The provided Lid Tool assists both the trade and the homeowner to remove the Active Lid by simply pushing the actuator button on the Concelo unit inwards and pulling the lid forward out of the cabinet. The lid can then be cleaned in hot soapy water, dried and is ready for re-installation.
The re-installation is even easier. Simply place the Lid Tool between the door front and the buckets with the lid rested on top of the buckets and push the drawer closed. The lid will reinstall itself — how good is that. This design makes the cabinetmaker's life easier too.
All that is left to do is remove the Lid Tool and hang it back on a hook inside the cabinet for safekeeping.
Concelo redefines what people should expect from the most used appliance in the kitchen. An award-winning design that boasts not just a clean design aesthetic, but also the Active Lid system, keeps the bin hygienic while looking smart and smelling clean.
Concelo waste bins are available nationwide through Hideaway’s distribution partners: Hafele, Carters, Rose City, ITM, Impeys and Scooters.
