Tall cupboards elevate hygiene levels

04 March 2019

Teknomek has introduced a range of cupboards developed with time and risk in mind. The robust units are designed to fit into standard operating procedure (SOP) and reduce cleaning times, while eliminating dirt and contaminant trap points. 

Commenting on the launch, Sue Springett, commercial manager at Teknomek, said: “Hygiene best practice dictates that every piece of furniture is regularly and thoroughly cleaned down. The longer each item takes to clean, the more time – and thus money – is spent.

“If an item is fiddly or prevents easy access, the total cost of ownership simply grows with each passing year. Intelligent hygienic design reduces risk and improves cleaning efficiencies; this thinking guides the development of all our products ¬– the new cupboards are a great case in point.” 

The ground clearance on each of the units has been increased to 30cm, which makes it easier and quicker to clean the base and the floor beneath. The hygienic design continues underneath, with straight edges on three sides removing the risk of harbourage and speeding up cleaning times. 

Sloping cabinet tops are standard, using gravity to help reduce risk. This also reinforces hygiene culture by discouraging users from placing items on top of the unit that may collect dust.

Inside, shelves sit on easy clean rods, which can be added as required to create the right storage configuration, options include wire for improved air circulation. All shelving is slightly tilted to ensure liquids will run off after cleaning with drainage holes in the base of the cupboards to reduce the risk of water pooling.

The standard single door models are 60cm wide, while the double door versions are available in widths of 100cm or 120cm. Both options come in heights of 198/208cm or 168/178cm. Flexibility extends to the choice of doors: options include no doors, or lockable solid, mesh, or clear doors with shatterproof polycarbonate panels.
