When it comes to their bins, simplehuman believe good products should be built to last so they put their entire range of step bins through a durability test. The result? Hardwearing bins that are designed to withstand 150,000 ‘steps’ – that’s 20 steps a day for over 20 years.
You see the pedal runs all the way to the back of the bin and pivots near the centre (like a see-saw) enabling the entire platform to take the weight for a smooth, steady action. It’s little wonder that most of the bins have a 10-year warranty. What’s more they offer a soft close lid. The patented lid shox air technology allows the lid to open easily but provides resistance as the lid closes, easing it down gently and quietly.
When designing the range, the simplehuman team also took into consideration clean and tidy waste. While the exterior is designed with a fingerprint-proof finish, the inside of the bin is created for extra-thick, double-seamed simplehuman bin liners that fit perfectly and stay neatly hidden.
