Healthcare FF&E that helps you fight infection

Whatever your role in healthcare, infection is the common enemy. Hygenius HTM63 and HTM71 furniture is designed to reduce bacterial load and to help cut Healthcare Acquired Infections. We’re on your side in the battles you fight every day.

50 years of Healthcare FF&E Excellence

Our family business leads the way in healthcare FF&E throughout the UK, with cabinetry, worksurfaces and bespoke joinery that is unrivalled for risk reduction, infection control, long life and installation ease, meeting and often exceeding the standards set in HTM 63 and HTM 71 cabinetry.

Hygenius work closely with front-line healthcare professionals who guide our R&D department in delivering new solutions and greater safety in acute, primary and mental healthcare settings.

As a result, Hygenius furniture is safer to use and easier to keep clean than ordinary alternatives, thanks to scores of uniquely thoughtful design details.

 

And what of the next 50 years? Healthcare’s challenges will change, of course, as will our furniture in meeting them.

Our purpose will stay the same, however: to create safer places for safer people.

One-Piece Slopping Top

Hygenius includes complete offsite manufactured one-piece slopping tops, reducing inaccessible or hard to reach dirt traps on top of HTM wall units. Sloping tops reduce the risk of infection by minimising dust collection and providing an easy to clean surface.

Enclosed Drawer Boxes & Mechanisms

Drawers and mechanisms are fully enclosed with the Hygenius system. This reduces infection risk by designing out inaccessible spaces within the rail system and providing a coved side to the internal drawer. This makes the drawers simple and easy to clean.

Wall Unit Glove Dispenser

Optional glove dispensing designs can be incorporated within the Hygenius wall units. This dispenser is a simple aluminium frame feature incorporated into a wall unit, sitting flush alongside the surrounding wall unit bases, offering easy hygienic access to PPE. Additional stocks can be stored tidily within the shelves directly above.

Easy Clean Handle

The handles on Hygenius furniture take into account infection prevention and spread. Handles are easy to clean, wipeable designs that eliminate inaccessible angles commonly seen in most handles. Handles are one of the most touched surfaces in a healthcare space and should be designed in the most infection intelligent way, to reduce bacteria reservoirs and infection risk.

Seamless Plinth

Hygenius plastic plinths are clipped directly to the adjustable feet for easy install and maintenance. These plinths don’t rot with repeated floor cleaning and they’re sealed to the floor, so dirty water can’t leak underneath the cabinet

Waterfall Edge

The solid surface counter top available for Hygenius features a waterfall edge detail designed specifically to reduce infection risk caused by spills of fluid or bloods. This edge detail stops liquids from being tracked through an acute space after dripping down the front of a traditional bullnose worktop and onto the floor.

Solid Surface Upstand to Rear

The rear upstand of Hygenius solid surface work top is an integrated upstand providing a seamless coved back for easy cleaning, with no seams to trap bacteria. Hygenius work surfaces are moulded within a machine reducing workmanship error and providing this seamless design while reducing costs typically associated with solid surfaces

Stainless Steel Sink Unit

Sink outlets are offset to prevent splashing of contaminated liquid, helping to reduce infection risk. Stainless steel sink units provide a robust and easy clean solution for clean and dirty utilities. The stainless steel sink top features uniquely designed sloping surfaces to prevent any puddling of waste water and harbouring of germs.
