Plastic Storage Units for Hospitals

Bray Plastics has an enviable and varied range of repeat customers in a diverse range of industries. One recent example is Performance Storage Systems Ltd for whom we have previously carried out projects for hospitals.  They required workstation equipment being supplied for another Foundation Hospital operating theatre refurbishment project to standardise theatre layout.

Various storage units were designed and fabricated in Polypropylene, PVC, Acrylic, HIPs and ABS, which were then mounted on or in new or existing wheeled trollies to increase efficiency in Theatre and ease cleaning.  These are illustrated in the images below.

 

 

David Duckworth, Design Director at PSSL made these comments recently about Bray Plastics,

“I have worked with Bray Plastics for many years. On this project they were able to steer our thoughts and designs towards the practical and cost effective. All the people involved were knowledgeable and helpful and production was undertaken to a high standard.”

 

Bray Plastics have long been an integral part to many of their customers’ design teams and we would relish the opportunity to offer our manufacturing expertise to a wider market. Please contact us at Bray Plastics if you think we can help.


Not All Acrylics Are Equal!

The most common name used to describe clear plastic would appear to be Perspex, and there are many others, but they are all actually trade names for Acrylic or PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate).

Acrylic is used in a huge range of products across a wide range of industries from low-tech to high and from low-cost to high budget.

It can be moulded, machined, fabricated and is widely available off the shelf as sheet, rod, bar, tube etc. Bray Plastics have extensive experience working with and producing acrylic products for their customers.

One recent example was a vacuum door produced for Leskers UK Ltd that was fitted to a high end vacuum chamber, as illustrated in the image below. The door was machined from 80 mm acrylic and finished by hand.

The Benefit of Working Demonstration Models

Demonstration and working models can communicate ideas and concepts far quicker than verbal explanation or the written word.

However, finding a model maker/fabricator who can turn your concept into reality can be an uphill struggle, and that is where Bray Plastics may be able to help.

The images show a working surface drainage model.

 

Manufactured in acrylic and directed by our customer, Bray Plastics provided a cost effective solution that could be used repeatedly as a demonstration and training aid.

Originally created for Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water, the Surface Drainage Model shows the surface drainage problems caused by housing construction and de-forestation.

The model is easy to set up and use. There are three inserts which can be interchanged to give different drainage effects. Water is poured onto the top of the hill, and both reservoirs are measured to see how much water is absorbed by the hill and how much runs down into the town.

Here’s what our customer had to say:

Bray Plastics have given us consistently high-quality results within the lead times specified, and communication regarding our orders has been very good.

Bray Plastics are pleased to be one of their suppliers, manufacturing a range of products in Nyloil, acetals, and UHMWPE.

The video shows Ram pressure plates being machined and assembled for one particular recovery vehicle from PE (Polyethylene). This is typical of the type of work Bray Plastics provides its customers and we hope it is of interest to you.

Please call us if you think we can help.


Producing Covid-19 visor components

In an environment where the level of uncertainty permeates through the whole of our society, it is gratifying to know that we at Bray Plastics are still able to help and contribute in a meaningful way to that society.

The demands that Covid 19 has placed on our infrastructure has meant shortages across the board. Not just of finished product and materials, but also of the efficient management of them and it has been heartening to see local people and organisations stepping in to fill a few of the voids exposed. Our local Rotary Club, working in conjunction with a local school, set about producing parts for the Vandyke Visor (designed by 2 Design Technology teachers at the school), to meet the much needed requirement for face screens from the NHS, Emergency Services, care homes and carers etc in our community.

Bray Plastics were asked if we could help, so we lasered some of the components from PP (polypropylene) sheet that were needed for the headband as illustrated in the video. Several thousand components later we are very pleased to have been able to help our community.

 

 

Stay safe, alert and healthy. From all at Bray Plastics.
