We use 304 stainless steel which is non-magnetic whilst resistant to oxidation and corrosion. Other grades of steel are available on request (316 for example). Note: Certain chemicals can still damage the surface of our stainless steel. Iodine can cause serious corrosion and should never be used as a cleaning agent.
We use identical upholstery vinyl as Medi-Plinth, their team has vast experience and has taken time to select the best quality vinyl available. Upholstery details can be found on Page 30.
All of our products are latex free
We only use lead-free epoxy/polyester powder paint. Paint is applied in booths to recycle any over-spray when possible. Alternative colours are available, this may incur a surcharge.
Suitable castors are selected to satisfy the anticipated product use. All castors have non-marking tyres (excludes select antistatic castors). Our anti-static castors feature a yellow indicator near the tyre. Castors will need regular cleaning to ensure a long life, no other maintenance is needed and no oils should be used on any castors. We advise all fittings are regularly checked and tightened as needed to ensure they are secure and safe for use Anti-static castors should have tyres cleaned periodically to remove any dirt/dust, ensuring good contact between the tyre and ground
The maintenance of high standards of cleanliness on all surfaces and equipment is a crucial factor in the prevention and control of infection. Whilst dust, dirt and moisture can harbour infection, the key risks are associated with contamination arising from contact with blood, body fluids, mucous membranes and damaged skin. In all cases surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected in order to destroy pathogenic micro organisms.
