FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are you an approved supplier to the NHS?
What antibacterial properties do your products have?
We offer the option of the scientifically developed BioCote© on all our sackholders, cutting down the risk of Healthcare Acquired Infections and cross contamination.
Why do your bins have little plastic feet?
This provides for full ventilation under the sackholder preventing the build up of bacteria as well as preventing marking on the floors. Other sackholders are susceptible to rusting due to a larger contact area with the floor.
Why do the wheels sit so far out at the back?
After years of extensive hospital ward trials, this has been proven to prevent wall damage caused by the lid of the sackholder scratching the surface of the wall and causing extensive damage.
Are you sackholders fire retardancy tested?
Yes, our sackholders have undergone extensive fire safety tests and have proved to be more than capable of withstanding rigorous fire punishment. The products have been fully approved under Health Technical Memorandum 05-03 Part A. (2008) Fire Safety in the NHS - Section 3.12.
What sizes are available?
Our sackholder bins are available from 20ltr, 50ltr, 70ltr and 90ltr capacities (depending on product model). They have been designed to fit NHS plastic sacks. If you are unsure which size would suit your requirements, please contact us.
Noise is a problem? How do we keep it to a minimum?
We can fit our specially designed silent closing device at the rear of the sackholder bin, which will enable the lid to close quietly which won’t disturb patients.
We need colour coding for different types of waste. What colour options are available?
No problem. We will paint according to your requirements. Our standard colours are white, yellow, black, or orange, while we also provide the Healthcare Standard Colours. If you wish a different colour to suit your requirements, or have any other query, then contact us to discuss.
