Our closed, washing-tunnel-resistant stainless steel transport carts are manufactured based on the ISO standard dimensions of 24” x 16”.
The carts are fitted with a lock with breakable seal, bumpers on the bottom, top and back, and identification holders on the front and sides.
This cart is ideal for transporting sterile sets from the external sterilization unit to the operating theatre. Used sets can also be transported from the hospital to the sterilization unit.
These ISO stainless steel washing-tunnel-resistant and shock-resistant transport carts are perfect for safely transporting sterile instruments from and to the operating theatre and contaminated sets to the sterilizing unit.
The transport cart is washing-tunnel-resistant. The runners can be removed from the cart for optimum cleaning.
The base plate and top plate are sloped to prevent any residual moisture after drying.
The doors of these stainless steel transport carts swivel open to 270° and are locked in the open position by a catch underneath the bumper. This ensures that the doors remain fixed in open position during the washing process.
The height (59”) allows the user to see over the top of the cart during transport.
The carts are equipped guides for each ISO column. These provide 9 useful positions depending on whether the instrument sets are being transported with ISO Perfo-Safe® wire shelves, wire baskets or wire shelves with raised edge (see comparative table).
The carts can be sealed at the top with a breakable seal, to guarantee sterility from the sterilization unit to the operating theatre and also avoid contamination during the transport back.
It is recommended that the packed instrument baskets are placed on silicone anti-slip mats to prevent movement during external transport and to reduce noise levels.
The transport carts feature a document holder on the front (A4) and side (A5) as standard to ensure that the carts and their contents can be identified from the outside.
The transport carts are equipped with two swivel castors with a brake (left front and back) and two fixed castors (right front and back). The ISO 1 transport carts have a wheel diameter of 5”, while the ISO 2 transport carts have a wheel diameter of 6.5”.
Optionally, the cart can be equipped with directional fixation. This is a handy and ergonomic solution when logistics employees travel longer distances with individual trolleys.
When connecting several carts in a train form, the combination of 2 fixed wheels and 2 swivel wheels is still a requirement.
A number of standard configurations of the stainless steel transport carts are equipped with a drawbar that can be used to couple several transport carts together to form a ‘train’ (see comparative table).
On request, transport trolleys can be equipped with a status display where “green” indicates that the trolley contains clean, sterile goods. “Red” indicates that the cart is returning after use in the O.R.
