The primary concern for the installation of the compactor system is whether the loading requirement of the fully loaded compactor system fits the loading capacity of the building. For example, normal building for 2nd level and above may have a loading capacity of 5KN per square meter, so we have to ensure that the loading of the compactor system is lower than the maximum loading capacity of the level. For some building management, they will require an PE endorsement to verify that the loading requirement is being met. For our system, we have calculated that the loading capacity is suitable for building with a loading capacity of at least 4KN per square meter. Details of the loading can be provide upon request. Usually, if the compactor system is installed on ground level, no PE endorsement will be needed unless stated otherwise by the relevant building management.
The space saving will increase as the number of bays increases. Space saving for compactor system can be as much as 60 percent for multiple column and multiple rows compactors configuration. Another advantage of the compactor system is the central locking system whereby the whole system can be locked from unauthorized access.
Our compactor system make use of level-structured platform to house the cabinets, hence, there will be no drilling of screws onto the floor and all components and parts are modular system which can be easily dismantled and re-assembled at another location.
