Hideaway Bins work closely with New Zealand’s leading sheet metal manufacturers and aluminium extruders to produce our metal components.
We use electro-galvanised steel for our sheet metal components. This has a smooth consistent thin layer of zinc to provide corrosion resistance and has a consistent surface for excellent finish when powder coated.
Our sheet metal suppliers utilise cutting edge sheet metal technology, including fibre laser cutters, turret punches, CNC folders and laser welding. This delivers high quality precision components which ensures the quality and reliability of all Hideaway Bins.
Prior to powder coating, all individual metal parts used undergo an iron phosphate pre-treatment. Iron phosphate conversion coating is a very important pre-treatment process, adding significantly to the performance of the finished coating, improving the over-all resistance of the metal part.
These parts are then subjected to an acidic bath and coated in a free flowing dry powder which is applied manually using a hand gun to ensure maximum coverage. The powder coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to form a hard finish.
We partner closely with leading plastic injection moulding suppliers. This gives us access to specialist skills and manufacturing machinery, allowing full control over the plastic injection moulding processes ensuring Hideaway Bins stringent quality standards are met.
All plastic components are made using virgin material for maximum durability. While using virgin material is more expensive, it means the strength of the components are not compromised by using fillers. At the end of their life, all parts are all fully recyclable to ensure minimal environmental impact.
Our buckets are made using a food-grade polypropylene material which is FDA (U.S.A) approved meaning they can also be used to store dry food stuffs.
Once all Hideaway Bin components are ready for assembly, our Product Technicians assemble the bins by hand at our facility in Silverdale, Auckland, NZ.
This assembly process allows for all parts to be hand checked to ensure the highest quality end product.
