Common Questions About Rubbermaid Commercial Products
What are some of Rubbermaid Commercial's options for trash containers?
BRUTE® trash cans are made of a lightweight material that still has durability for use in outdoor settings. A UV inhibitor is built into these containers to ensure the material lasts in extreme conditions, preventing it from fading, warping, and cracking. The rim is strengthened and has a seamless design to facilitate cleaning. Bag cinches are integrated into these trash containers, holding liners in place without tying knots. Inside the cans, venting channels ease liner removal. Rounded handles at the rim are comfortable to grip while supporting heavy loads, and the base handles reduce strain when lifting these Rubbermaid Commercial containers.
Slim Jim® trash cans are as durable as Brute containers, but save space with their 11-inch width. Like Brute containers, some Slim Jim cans have bag cinches and venting channels, though these cans also have rim and base handles to provide an ergonomic grip. Step-on options in the Slim Jim line prevent users from touching the containers, and the lids close slowly and quietly.
What are Rubbermaid Commercial food storage containers made of?
Polyethylene is the most common and economical plastic. It is flexible and withstands temperatures between -40 and 160 degrees Fahrenheit, so it can be used for freezer storage. Since this material is opaque white, it's impossible for users to see what's being stored inside. It also stains easily and retains flavors and odors, especially with acidic products.
Slightly more expensive than polyethylene, polypropylene is translucent to view the container's contents. It can be used to store food in the refrigerator, dry storage areas, or at warm temperatures since it is safe between 0 and 230 degrees Fahrenheit.
Polycarbonate is transparent, tough, and flexible, and it scratches easily but resists damage from impacts. Withstanding temperatures from -40 to 212 degrees Fahrenheit, it can be used in walk-in coolers and freezers.
What are some features of Rubbermaid Commercial ingredient bins?
Product in Rubbermaid ingredient bins is rotated with a First In First Out (FIFO) design. This ensures that you're serving the freshest food and reducing food waste. Suspended from the top of the bin but not reaching the bottom, the FIFO barrier enables users to pour new product into the back of the unit, which pushes older product to the front.
One-handed access with a sliding door eases ingredient access. This door slides down on rectangular bins and rotates open on Brute ingredient bins. Scoop storage is built into these ingredient bins and elevates the scoop out of the ingredients to prevent product contamination with the handle. Having a scoop storage also speeds up ingredient retrieval. Scoops are included with the bins, so you don't have to worry about having a scoop that won't fit.
Rubbermaid Commercial's ingredient bins have a modular design that is perfect for stacking. You can stack bins with different sizes to best fit your storage area and products. When the bins are stacked, you can still access product since the sliding door is on the front.
