Ramon wins Gold at London Hospital 2012
Ramon Hygiene Products has provided more than 160 TTS Trolley Systems complete with Deep+ Microfibre mopping into the New Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, London. The hospital will be the official hospital used during the London Olympic Games.
The new hospital has three blue glass towers, complete with helipad, with the tallest tower at 284ft - the same height as Big Ben. The new build; one of the largest hospitals in Europe, has 6,000 rooms and around 4,000 staff and is part of the Barts Trust - said to be the largest hospital trust in the world.
It will be home to a range of specialist centres including London's leading trauma and emergency care facility, one of Europe's largest renal services and one of the UK's largest children's hospitals - as well as having a dedicated Women's Hospital.
The cleaning systems used at the facility have been custom designed to suit requirements.
Simon Baldock, Sales Director at Ramon says: "The TTS modular system enables customers to design a bespoke system to fit around their individual requirements. Unlike many other trolleys in the market, all the space is utilised thanks to the cleverly designed drawer system and there are over 150 variations of trolleys available.
"They can be supplied with lockable drawers or lockable doors to provide both safety and security as well as a fully enclosed waste section that keeps all dirty mops and waste hidden away. They have silent closing lids and now have a lid for the middle section of the trolley - keeping all equipment, including chemicals, stored inside and away from public view. They are made from first grade polypropylene which means they are easy to keep clean, versatile and tough and will last taking the rough knocks of hospital life.
"The trolleys which are 100% recyclable which backs up the NHS call for sustainability."
The Royal London Hospital is also the first in the UK to invest in the Italian made 'TTS Bacteria Control Trolley System (BCS)'. These trolleys are completely integrated with anti-bacterial additives that help slow down and inhibit the growth of bacteria.
"These trolleys are ideal for clinical areas of the hospital and can help reduce the potential spread of infection, help minimise the growing threat of bacteria and in turn help save on costs and improve overall hygiene standards," says Simon.
The Royal London has also invested in Deep+ Microfibre from Ramon. The specially designed, fully colour coded looped microfibre mops facilitate deep cleaning into floors and because of the micro-porous looped design, are said to be more absorbent than conventional short piled microfibre mops.
Staff no longer need to handle dirty mops because of the clever locking system provided with the mop frames which allows the mop to be released into the laundry bag without touching. This is also used with the Bio system used by the Royal London Circulation Team. The Bio Cleaning Tool is a compact and bucketless system which is light and easy to use, saving time and the amount of chemical used.
TTS. the Italian based manufacturer of the systems, is also delighted to have won such a prestigious contract in the UK, having already supplied numerous other hospitals in England and Ireland.
