HOW HOSPITALS CAN BENEFIT FROM REFRIGERATED CONTAINERS

Refrigerated containers are commonly associated with long-distance shipping and food storage, but they can be indispensable in many different industries, including the medical sector. Hospitals and other healthcare organisations often require temperature-controlled storage facilities to store a range of items, including vaccinations. Spacewise temperature-controlled containers provide a cost-effective solution that meets the highest standards of quality and hygiene.

Our containers are available on flexible lease terms and can be used in a variety of ways by medical institutions to reduce the burden on existing storage capacities or help facilitate specific treatments or projects. Here are some common applications of reefers:

Primary Storage for Medicaments and Equipment

Hospitals' requirements for cold storage space can vary from location to location and sometimes seasonally. There is also a constant need for medical facilities to decrease the overall costs of storing equipment and supplies. By combining several refrigerated units of various sizes, hospitals can create temporary storage capacities that can be easily accessed via the main building. Since reefers can be set to precise temperatures and loaded easily using aluminum ramps, they are suitable for accommodating bulk quantities of pharmaceuticals and other goods that require constant refrigeration.

Temporary Cold Storage Facilities for Biological Samples

During certain periods (i.e., in an epidemic), hospitals may need to collect test samples or administer vaccines to a large number of individuals. In order to store the items required to perform those tasks, auxiliary storage will likely be needed on a temporary basis. Since containers meet all the main requirements for the storage of sensitive materials and can reliably and consistently maintain very low temperatures, they are very useful in this capacity.

Mobile Testing Units and Field Hospitals

Teams of medical workers are sometimes required to travel in order to provide services at remote locations. Their tasks may include testing for the presence of a certain disease or delivering emergency treatment. It's essential to keep some supplies in cold storage while in the field, which is why containers are sometimes necessary. Reefer containers can provide protection from heat and vermin, regardless of the location.

Managing Cold Storage on a Budget

Medical institutions can make significant savings on traditional brick and mortar storage by working with an experienced storage provider like Spacewise through leasing refrigerated containers on a short-term or long-term basis.

Coca-Cola Enterprises  have developed a strong relationship with Spacewise during the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The Spacewise  team have worked effectively with CCE providing support to deliver on time solutions for this high profile logistical operation, contributing to a successful Games time operation for our business.

I wish to say Spacewise (Sharon) response time is superb (even whilst she is on holiday!) and time between my enquiry and quote provided is remarkably quick.

Equipment delivery is good quality and clean. Commissioning (usually next day unless otherwise organised) is complete by suitably qualified engineers and an ‘operating’ explanation given to the end user.

In addition their after-sales support is very good, tech. offering advice and engineer if deemed appropriate.

We contacted Spacewise to supply us with 2 refrigeration storage units on behalf of the client and their bar supplier as a long hire during the peak season. We haven’t experienced a single problem with them and we have found the team to be helpful and reliable at all times, particularly Sharon Rimell whom we have been liaising with. Happy bar company, happy client! They come highly recommended.
