Our storage products can reduce the problems associated with medical cylinder storage as they provide a fixed, focal point for staff when cylinders are required for use, as well as a neat solution to the hazards that free-standing cylinders can create for both users and passers-by. Gas cylinders are relatively unstable and heavy, so a falling cylinder could cause serious injury.
The cylinder containers are designed to accommodate the most widely used medical cylinder sizes, those used on the wards, treatment rooms and in the theatre area (CD, D and E). The containers are made of 1.5mm steel and powder coated in grey for a superior, corrosion-resistant finish. All our containers are now coated in an antimicrobial powder coating called Sterilcoat AM. In tests the powder coating showed a complete broad range activity against bacteria, yeasts and moulds including antibiotic resistant bacteria superbugs such as MRSA. All also have a 3mm thick rubber mat in the base to reduce noise and “wear and tear”, these can be removed for ease of cleaning.
They also have hard plastic trim to reduce damaging contact between the cylinders and the container. Our cylinder containers are robust, durable and virtually maintenance–free. Furthermore all cylinder containers have fixing points enabling them to be attached to a wall (recommended). All of the containers also have small rubber feet to stop the metal of the container from contacting directly with the ward floor. If you require moveable storage containers we also make wheeled cylinder containers, the 4, 6, 8 and 9 cylinder containers can all be fitted with braked castors.
