Sharpsguard Yellow 22L XA High-Volume Sharps Container (Case of 7)
As hospitals and other medical environments can often generate a lot of clinical and potentially harmful waste, it is important to ensure that correct storage and disposal systems are in place. The Sharpsguard Yellow 22L XA High-Volume Sharps Container (Case of 7) provides hands-free access through the hinged door, enabling the safer and more hygienic storage of sharps for incineration.
Please note that the Yellow 22L Sharps Container is suitable for sharps contaminated by medicinal products, excluding those contaminated by cytotoxic and cytostatic waste.
The Sharpsguard Yellow 22L Sharps Containers have been designed to provide a safer method of storing sharps for incineration in larger capacities. The solid structure enables a greater quantity of sharps for disposal, providing storage for up to twenty-two litres of sharps waste at any one time. This will be particularly useful for theatres, laboratories, and sluice rooms, where high volumes of waste can be produced.
Each container also includes a yellow lid to allow for colour coding. This will provide a visual prompt for eliminating the chance of objects being placed in the incorrect containers. The label on the front of the container will also provide improved safety, with space for writing information including the container’s location, department, and start date.
The Yellow 22L XA High-Volume Sharps Container provides hands-free access with the hinged door. This will make it easier to insert larger, bulkier sharps into the container, and will also reduce the need for hands to come into direct contact with the container.
The door can remain open at either 40 or 90 degrees, and also features a temporary closure. It includes a ‘push to lock’ function, and features a permanent closure that increases safety during transportation by preventing sharps from escaping the container. Additionally, each container includes an absorbent pad to soak up any liquids inside.
