As we know many of our healthcare professionals and businesses have been under strain. Hänel Rotomat Vertical Storage is helping teams prepare for what’s next.

Unfortunately we may need to deal with a pandemic ongoing. With many of our health care organisations using this time to reflect and prepare for what they would do differently in the future. The time is now to start optimising workplace efficiencies, safety and health.  Many health care companies are incorporating automatic storage retrieval systems into their workplaces to allow them to do their jobs in a smarter way.

The Hänel Rotomat is a system that brings goods to man on a rotational basis. It also stores goods securely so only certain shelves can be accessed, depending on your access code, it also stores items in a heat and dust controlled environment. Manufactured in Germany at a high standard, these lifts can be relied upon for the most challenging environments. With our support team across Australia and New Zealand we are never too far away.

Their compact design saves up to 60%  of the existing floor space and the best thing is it can be accessed from multiple floors saving time moving up and down stairs at an ergonomic height. The ClimateStore system enables the Hänel systems to be used as cold store or storage retrieval systems (Rotomat from -20° to +60°) (lean lift from 0° to +60°). Temperatures can also be recorded and measured. Storage of contamination-sensitive products is also possible.
