Using Retractable Cord Reels for the Medical Industry

A new family of cable reels has been created by Hunter Spring Products, a leader in electrical and mechanical retractable cord reels for over 50 years, designed specifically for medical applications: the DuraReel medical cord reels.

DuraReel Medical Cord Reels

All of the contact surfaces (ball stop, housing, plug and retractable cord) on DuraReel medical cord reels have been manufactured with an antimicrobial additive to safeguard the cord reel from odor, mildew and mold. The surface of the reel is smooth and easy to clean, and the treatment will not diminish over time or wash off.

The reel safely houses ten feet of cable standard and retracts smoothly. It also has an optional mounting bracket and threaded inserts for easy mounting. The hardwearing 7.5 inch diameter reels are ETL certified to UL60601-1 and UL355 standards and possess heavy-duty 14/3 hospital grade cord in a strong grey/white high impact plastic case.

Hunter Spring Cable Reels

Hunter Spring cable reels possess an automatic pawl and ratchet system which locks the cord at any chosen length securely. A standard ball stop holds the cord within easy reach and a small tug is all that is needed for the retraction mechanism to start.
