CHUTES International DURACHUTE (#301) system is the choice system for roofers, scaffolding, general contractors, and construction companies. The blow-molding process makes a more resilient chute than any other on the market. The upper and lower rings add extra stability, so that the system maintains its shape regardless of length of system and the larger 32” diameter makes for efficient and effective debris removal.
- Each section is approximately 4’ tall with 3’ 1” of useable chute length
- Sections weigh 37 lbs (chains included)
- Heat-Treated, Proof Tested Galvanized Chains
- Top opening of 32” tapers to 27”
CHUTES also offers the economical DURAFLAT Flat Plastic Trash Chutes. The DURAFLAT trash chutes are designed for the contractor, store flat, and can be assembled quickly with hand tools.
If you want a complete trash chute system, start with the intake hopper (#0301) and basic support frame (#0310). The intake hopper and basic support frame are required for all outrigger options. You then need to choose the best outrigger for your application. Parapet wall or window (#0311), flat roof (#0314), pitched roof (#0316), or scaffolding (#0312)? They also make a safety frame (#0315) for additional security on the job site. CHUTES International has almost every application covered!
There are other accessories as well – intermediate intake hoppers (#0305), dust gaiters (#0330) to control debris particles, protective liners (#0303) for protection from heavy debris, picking bars (#0323), and winches.

More often than not roof leaks could have been avoided if code was met and/or enforced. It is important to be educated on current codes for the safety, health and welfare of everyone involved.
Making sure that all plumbing vent stacks are up off of the finished roof system, complying with applicable building code minimum requirements. Typically it is spec’d to maintain a minimum of 8″ on all VTR’s. The video attached shows the most efficient and effective way to do this.
The International Plumbing Code (IPC),
requires plumbing vent pipes to extend vertically at least 152 mm (6 in.) above a roof, per Section 905.5, “Vent Connections and Grades.” Additionally, vent pipes must be at least 305 mm (12 in.) away from a vertical surface. In locations known for snow, the vent pipe needs to be at least 51 mm (2 in.) in diameter and 305 mm inside an insulated area of a building before extending through the roof. Vents in these locations also should extend 610 mm (24 in.) above a roof.
2010 Florida Building Code, Plumbing 904.1 Roof extension.
All open vent pipes that extend through a roof shall be terminated at least 6 inches (152 mm) above the roof and not less than 2 inches (51 mm) above the invert of the emergency overflow, except that where a roof is to be used for any purpose other than weather protection, the vent extensions shall be run at least 7 feet (2134 mm) above the roof.

Xtend+Climb ladders are made of lightweight 6061 Alloy, commonly used in the aerospace industry. This makes these ladders lightweight and easily carried with the integrated carrying handle but strong enough for the contractor or do-it-yourselfer to stand up to any job. When closed these ladders are as short as 27 inches on the shortest model but can extend to 15-1/2 feet on the tallest model. That’s the equivalent to having a normal 19-1/2 foot extension ladder! These are so compact you can easily store it in your trunk but have a full height ladder when you need it. Talk about the best of both worlds.
The Xtend+Climb ladders feature True Telescoping Technology that makes them the only ladders in the world that are able to extend and lock to your desired height just by using your foot! This is not only easier to use but makes the Xtend+Climb telescoping extension ladders safer than most other telescoping ladders on the market today.
We also feature a telescoping step ladder, folding step stools, stable step stools, carrying cases, and protective covers for the telescoping extension ladders.
