Mortuary Product Spotlight: What’s New From Craven

At the end of March, we announced that we were expanding into the Mortuary industry. We used our long standing expertise in manufacturing storage and handling products for the medical sector to sidestep into this related niche industry.

Our new mortuary racking and mortuary trolleys provide versatile, practical and long-lasting solutions for a wide range of requirements, with bespoke options also available. Our first batch of products are ready to go, and we wanted to take a moment to explore these products and just how they can assist professionals in the industry.

Bier Trolley

Our Bier Trolley is available with fixed or collapsible options, and is designed to be robust and versatile. Its steel frame has a durable coating and its 125mm castors are fitted with brakes for added safety. As with all our products, custom sizes are available and we can work to custom specifications if needed. Just have a chat with us and let us  know your requirements!

Mortuary Racking

Our mortuary racking fulfils a wide range of requirements with a choice of free-standing, mobile, fixed height, adjustable height and even bespoke options to maximise storage capacity. Our specialist in-house installation team works across the UK to ensure our racking solutions perfectly fit the space for which they are intended.

Our racking is easy to assemble and can withstand -30° temperatures. It’s easy and hygienic to clean and is as sturdy and robust as you would expect from any other of our products.

General Purpose Trolley

Our general purpose trolleys are great for any industry, and are also a part of our mortuary range. Available in 2, 3 or 4 tiers, this trolley is perfect for transporting vital equipment in a safe and secure way, with trays also featuring an upstand on all sides to help keep the items on board secure. These trolleys are delivered fully welded and ready to use and can be designed and manufactured to suit bespoke requirements.

Theatre Dressing Trolley

Our Theatre Dressing Trolleys provide optimal storage for dressing trays, are hygienic, easy to clean and robust. They’re made with 304 grade stainless steel with an anti-glare stainless steel top. These trolleys are supplied with bumpers, top and bottom flat shelves, and high quality castors (2 braked and 2 swivel) as standard.

Depending on the sector you’re in, you might find our range of other medical equipment particularly useful too. Browse our website for more information or get in touch with us if we can be of assistance in any way.
