CHUTES International has pioneered and revolutionized the construction debris chute industry since 1989. We first introduced our patented, heavy-duty steel debris chute to fill the need for safe, time-saving and cost efficient debris removal. Then, in response to industry demand, we introduced our own DURACHUTE, 32 inches (813 m) HDPE plastic debris chute system.
More recently, CHUTES introduced its own flat chute line, DURAFLAT. The system is designed with the roofer in mind.
In 2004, CHUTES introduced its own line of internal trash & linen chutes, to accompany its compactor, DuraPak line, postal specialties service department and lockers.
