HUSBANDS LIFTS CARRY BLOOD FOR SCOTTISH NATIONAL BLOOD TRANSFUSION SERVICE
Interserve UK the specialist facilities construction and management company recently asked Husbands to provide 2 dumbwaiter service lifts to carry blood for the new SNBTS centre being constructed at Currie near Edinburgh. Husbands manufactured and installed the 2 lifts using techniques and technology developed for lifts previously supplied to NHS England and London fertility clinics. The lift cars were manufactured using marine grade 316 stainless steel, special coving and beaded finishes to the car interiors meant corners were eliminated to allow hygenic cleaning, whilst special silicone membranes covering the control buttons also provided a smooth wipe clean surface. Rubber seals on the landing doors were similarly an aid to preventing dirt ingress and the lifts were interfaced with the buildings fire alarm system.
