Key Advice and Guidance for Products
Throughout the development of your veterinary equipment, we will 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?
Different castors are better suited to certain uses, so by understanding what your product needs are we can ensure the best solution for you. For example, for dispensing trolleys, our 100mm and 125mm castors have ball bearings on the axle and stem, making your product easier to move around. Our smooth manoeuvre castors will provide a stable ride for our furry friends, reducing stress levels for patient and family.
Does the application have any special requirements?
In some cases, veterinary products have special requirements; such as the need for conductive castors in operating theatres, antimicrobial products to reduce the spread of infection and disease or non-magnetic components (available in a variety of sizes) for use near MRI scanners. We have a range of products to suit all needs, along with the options of stainless steel parts for ease of cleaning, strength and durability, coloured foot brake pedals for easy identification, and a range of colours and finishes.
What space is available for the castor or component?
What load capacity is required?
How frequently will the product be moved?
Questions like these will help us to find the very best castor or component for your needs, giving you the best in durability, functionality and appearance.
