Preventing Hazards in Hospitals with Cord Reels

cord reel

Cord reel producer Hunter Spring launched its state-of-the-art DuraReel power cord reel recently. It is specifically manufactured for use in the medical device industry and hospitals where commitment to the highest standards is critical.

The DuraReels are now available to countries outside the US, with the CE mark obtained recently, and the use of cord wire and plugs that meet all European standards. Manufactured from an easy-to-clean plastic, the DuraReel cord reel has an attractive, high-impact case paired with 10 feet of retractable cord.

First Antimicrobial Solution Available

As the only cord reel on the market, the DuraReel cords have been assessed specifically in conditions where Staphylococcus Aureus (Staph) and Escherichia Coli (E Coli) microorganisms are present. Every contact surface, such as the plug, ball stop, housing, and retractable cord, has been manufactured with an antimicrobial additive to shield the cord reel from mildew, mold, and odor. The antimicrobial additive will not diminish over time or wash off.

Ideal for Mobile Workstations

The DuraReel power cord reel is a perfect complement to mobile equipment such as:

  • Telemedicine carts
  • Mobile lighting carts
  • Mobile x-ray carts

Or other varieties of mobile workstations presenting an ergonomic solution to data cable management and power requirements.

Prevents Trip Accidents

The capacity to securely lock the cord at any necessary length and the aesthetic design makes the DuraReel ideal for use in:

  • Hospital wards
  • Recovery rooms
  • Operating theatres

Or any other place at a hospital where an extension cord is required but a regular cord could be a trip hazard.

Quality You Can Rely On

To attain the long lasting, high quality that Hunter Spring products are renowned for, the DuraReel is produced at Hunter Spring’s own plant in the United States from the best materials on the market.
