Casters with Neoprene Wheels: Protecting Hospital Floors
Hospitals pride themselves in keeping their floors and seating areas clean and unmarked. One hospital found that their rolling chairs and tables (which were fitted with nylon wheels) were damaging floors and leaving them with streaks. This meant that the maintenance team would spend extra time and money waxing and cleaning the floors. The hospital contacted several caster companies and none of them were able to solve their problem - except for Caster Connection, of course.
Floor-Protecting Casters and Wheels for Hospitals
The hospital contacted a Caster Connection Regional Solutions Manager (RSM) for assistance. Using his years of accumulated knowledge and expertise of various caster and wheel options, Caster Connection’s RSM recommended the use of Neoprene wheels on their chairs and tables. After one month of testing, the hospital found that they saved 40 hours of waxing the floors and over 20 gallons of wax. Not only did this end the problem of damaged floors, but the savings on wax allowed the hospital to outfit their hospital completely in MedCaster wheels.
2 years after implementing the wheels from Caster Connection, the hospital continues to be a loyal client. “We call Caster Connection now for any of our [caster and wheel] needs and will for the future”, says the hospital’s maintenance purchaser.
