Sterile Core SPD Stainless Steel Storage
Many hospitals store their sterile storage kits on wire shelving. Often, these kits are stored separately and sometimes in an entirely different room than other "soft supplies" due to lack of space and the need for specialized storage. Stainless steel floor cabinets on high density shelving provide an effective sterile core (SPD) storage system that consolidates inventory while saving space and providing all the benefits of stainless steel in Billings, Missoula, Great Falls, Bozeman, Butte, and throughout the state of Montana.

Stainless Steel Flooring & High Density
The stainless steel floor cabinets aren't just for healthcare applications, though. Their durability and ease of cleanliness also makes them an ideal storage solution for retail settings, supply areas, clean rooms, refrigerated areas, and others. In controlled environments like the Sterile Core Department in a hospital, real estate can be much more expensive to operate. It can also be difficult to find long-lasting storage for applications in harsh conditions such as freezer areas. When combined with space-saving systems such as high density shelving, stainless steel provides a durable solution that keeps items organized, protected, and easily accessible.
In one application, a US Air Force Medical Center wanted to consolidate their soft supplies and surgical instrument sets into one area in the SPD. In addition, a high density storage system would need to be built on top of the existing floor since there could be no floor penetration, and the flooring material needed to be stainless steel. The resulting wire stainless steel floor cabinets on high density shelving was able to store the instrument kits in a compact space to allow for storage of soft supplies and other consumables in the same room.
The medical center was also able to use their existing wire carts, which were installed directly onto the high density system to save on costs. The extra wire shelving was repurposed to other departments. There is now 26% more capacity for soft supply storage and 600 sq. ft. of extra floor space to allow case carts to be stored in the same room as well. Since the stainless steel flooring is modular, it can also be relocated or adjusted if the department's storage needs change.
