Medical trolleys come in a variety of shapes, sizes, brands, and combinations. They are used in a variety of settings depending on the type of work required, the load they can bear and changes in the environment around them, their working height and many other details. There are several factors to consider before investing in medical trolley in a hospital. Primarily, these stainless steel medical trolleys should be resistant to heat, water, chemicals and should be able to hold a firm grip on tiled, wet and concrete surfaces.
There are many different medical trolleys that are used for different purposes in a hospital setting. One of the most durable and reliable is the BZD range of medical trolley, which is usually fixed in the hospital laundry trolley. Their weight can be anywhere between 30 to 100 kg. The medical trolleys have a zinc-plated, pressed steel housing and can be fitted with a variety of wheels. They can be easily manipulated and do not require much maintenance.
Trolleys with locking system
They can also be fitted with a locking system which is very useful in this kind of setting. Since it is sensitive to touch, only part of the thumb can engage or disconnect the locking device, signalling or stopping the movement of the caster from there. It also comes equipped with a double ball race swivel head that makes it easy to negotiate curved bands, tight corners and uneven surfaces.
The Medical trolley range has dual wheels and is ideal for hospitals as well. They slide smoothly on the floor, and they also have a simple swivelling technology that makes them suitable for trolleys and other movable equipment such as computers and medical equipment. One of the most reliable medical trolleys is the SSMM series which offers a combination of stainless steel (Grade 304), and a choice of wheels (white nylon, blue rubber on black nylon or red polyurethane on white nylon). They can also be supplied with brakes.
Variants of medical trolleys
The WPUA Series of Wheels is also an ideal choice for fitting hospital medical trolleys. They are unmarked and anti-static. Composed of grey thermoplastic polyurethane tires on a polypropylene rim, the thermoplastic polyurethane tire is injected onto a central core with double mechanical anchoring. The central polyamide core is equipped with original 625 bearings which are supplied with 2RS water-proofing as standard. The wheels can withstand loads up to 160kg and are one of the most popular choices for medical trolleys used in hospital environments.
Medical trolleys are prominent in the home and in many workplaces. Nylon, rubber, aluminium, cast iron, pneumatic tires, stainless steel and plastic are just a small part of the materials available for successful casting. When choosing, it is good to use the principle that if the diameter of the wheel is large, the medical trolley needs less resistance and depends on how the medical trolley moves.
Fixing kits are available when purchasing medical trolleys to add to the existing furniture of the hospital. A kit consists of nuts, bolts and washers and is available in a specific size to suit the needs of the object to which the castor will be attached. The medical trolley is likely to be loosened if proper pesticide is not used. One thing that has become famous over time is that it has permeated everyone’s life without being understood, yet something without which we could easily have gone bad.
Finally, it is very important to find a suitable caster for use in hospitals and other institutional settings. They must be of very good quality, and must also be manufactured following certain specifications.
