Key Advice and Guidance for Products
Throughout the selection of your medical castors and components, we will work with you to ensure that our products meet all of the criteria for their intended use. Your dedicated account coordinator will take the time to understand your project and recommend any special requirements, considering questions such as:
What is the application for the castor or component?
Not all castors are suited to all purposes and in some cases choosing the right castor can have a big impact. For example, hospital trolleys – our 100mm and 125mm castors are designed with ball bearings on the axle and stem, making manoeuvering easier and making your product a reliable choice for hospital professionals.
What special requirements can Guy-Raymond cater for within the medical industry?
When you’re choosing castors and components for medical equipment and furniture, there are often special requirements that need to be taken into account. Examples include the need for conductive castors in operating theatres, antimicrobial products to reduce the spread of infection and disease, non-magnetic components (all available in various sizes) for use near MRI scanners, stainless steel parts for wet areas or rigorous cleaning requirements, and coloured foot brake pedals and wheel discs for easy identification. Guy-Raymond can cater for all your requirements with our range of standard and custom medical castors and components.
What load capacity is required for the castor?
How frequently will the product be moved?
For example, is it for a standard or bariatric range?
Will the product be moved around the hospital or clinic?
This will determine whether ball bearings in the castors are needed to aid mobility and improve functionality.
Asking questions like these will help ensure that your castors are ideally suited to your needs, increasing durability and maintaining a high quality end product and a more reliable, comfortable service for patients.
