Recommendation for the installation of debris chutes
We offer you some recommendations for the placement of a chutes column as a debris evacuation system, by using a crane.
The specific needs of a work may require a different assembly, which should determine the technical staff.
Placement of debris chutes, step by step
The first step is the installation of the universal support bracket at the first height, where a hopper will be placed.
The support bracket can be placed vertically or horizontally
Once the first debris chute is inserted, it must be raised, while adding more tubes to the column.
The hopper must be fixed by chains to a metal rod. And the rod, must be coupled to the latch hook of the crane.
When the hopper is at the height of the support bracket, it is necessary to join it with a chain and a carabiner.
This process will be repeated for each floor of the building. Starting the series with a hopper if there is a debris removal point at that level.
We recommend to install one support bracket for each hopper to ensure the stability of the column.
And if several floors of a building are not going to have a hopper, an anchor should be placed for each height (approximately every three meters ), using the tool or method determined by the technical staff at the building site.
It is necessary to check the correct state of all the that aregoing to be used. Especially that they are completely closed and coupled in the correct position to ensure safety.
The debris chute column should always be straight for safety.
The last chute of the chute column, the one that connects to the container, must be placed one meter above the container height, to prevent debris from accumulating and clogging thechutes column. In addition, it is important to tie this last tube two ends to the container.
Safety measures in the installation of debris chutes
Operators must receive prior training to assemble or disassemble the debris chute column.
The chains should always hang upside down and never upwards.
The carabiners must be checked before and after their placement.
The chutes column must always be straight and without curves.
It is not recommended to use a hopper in lateral position to start a debris chutes column.
