Key Advice and Guidance for Products
Guy-Raymond can help you select your medical castors and components to ensure that they meet all the criteria for your medical furniture or equipment. Your dedicated account coordinator will take the time to understand your project, considering questions such as:
What is the application for the castor or component?
We supply components for a range of medical devices, equipment and furniture, so as soon as we understand what type of product you’re making, we’ll have an idea of which components will be most suitable.
How frequently will the product be moved?
For hospital trolleys and other products that will be moved a lot, we recommend castors with ball bearings on the axle and the stem. The ball bearings make your product easier to move and manoeuvre, reducing strain on healthcare professionals.
Antimicrobial castors can also add value to products that will be wheeled between departments, helping to prevent the spread of bacteria and microbes which can lead to infection.
Are there any special requirements?
For example: conductive castors and glides for use in operating theatres; non-magnetic components for products to be used near MRI scanners; stainless steel parts for wet areas or where cleaning requirements are rigorous.
