In an effort to combat kitchen fires, Mar-Bal, Inc. has developed Waste-Safe fire-resistant wastebaskets.

Made in Painesville, Ohio, the wastebaskets are made from thermoset composites with fibreglass reinforcement and are available in a range of colours and sizes.

The UL Classified and CSFM (California State Fire Marshal) Listed line will contain a fire without burning, melting or collapsing.

When implemented, the wastebaskets improve an organization’s overall fire safety plans and leads to an overall improved risk management plan. Designed for safety and efficiency, Waste-Safe wastebaskets will not burn or contribute to a fire, are low smoke and non-toxic, and feature seamless construction.

Additionally, typical round metal trash receptacles can dent easily and will rust – often leaving a metal stain on the floor. Mar-Bal wastebaskets can also help reduce these preventative maintenance costs, are easy to clean, and are corrosion and rust proof – they’re guaranteed to last.
