Wybone introduce the Capsule II All Plastic Sackholder

In News by Laura Dean

We are excited to announce the highly anticipated release of the Capsule II All Plastic Sackholder, which compliments our broad range. We’ve been manufacturing clinical waste bins since 1973, and have successfully held the contract for the supply of sackholders to the NHS since 1998.

Our range includes Metal, Hybrid and Capsule units; the Capsule has been further developed to incorporate a plastic pedal and body with no metal components to deliver an all plastic unit – the Capsule II.

Wybone recognises that there is an increasing demand for an easy clean 100% plastic sackholder to be supplied to the NHS. Managing Director, Richard Cooper emphasises how customers are at the forefront of product design:

“Working with customer feedback was an important step in the design process of our fully plastic sackholder; this enabled us to make minor adjustments to help the unit perform better in operational environments. We encourage our customers to request a sample and welcome their feedback.”

As a recognised supplier of clinical waste sackholders to the NHS, we have used our expertise and over 40 years of experience of designing efficient, robust and quality sackholders to introduce the new Capsule II with a number of key features.

This has been achieved with the use of high impact ABS plastic components, offering the highest available fire retardant ‘V0’ rated plastic. The Capsule II also conforms to HTM-05-03 Fire Safety Regulations. This sackholder provides a new waste solution for clinical settings, including sensitive areas such as operating theatres. It’s also safe to use in treatment rooms and areas with MRI scanners.

The Capsule II offers easy maintenance, with castors fitted to the back for manoeuvrability. The newly designed hands free unit features rounded corners and no sharp edges, and incorporates an easy clean plastic frame that can help infection prevention.

The multi-point pedal access makes operating the unit easy, no matter which angle it is pressed from and whether the user is left or right footed. An integrated plastic damper allows the lid to close slowly in a controlled and quiet manner with the bare minimum of noise, particularly important at night and in neonatal units.
