Materials Handling’s Bedlift Vertical Storage solution aims to meet one main goal: maximizing hospital floor space in the most efficient way possible. The Bedlift is a space saving vertical storage solution and a cost effective way to remove unused “hallway beds” from hospital corridors as pictured above and store them in a neat and easy to access fashion.

Stacking unused beds vertically in a secure storage system will recover valuable floor space by reducing hallway clutter and removing potential fire hazards from hospital corridors. By using Bedlift, hospital maintenance departments will see a dramatic increase in storage capacity, organization and product flow, which will reduce down time and increase the number of beds available to patients.

In addition to increasing space and efficiency, removing unused beds from hallways reduces hazards, which will allow hospitals to meet or continue to meet standards regarding the storage of hospital beds.

These unique vertical stackers will also improve hospital’s maintenance departments’ capacity, organisation and product flow whilst reducing down time.  This critically increases the number of beds available for patient use at any given moment.

Bedlifts are simple to use, and can be operated by a single person with the push of a button. Operating on the last in first out (LIFO) picking concept, the first bed is loaded onto the lift and raised vertically, which opens up space below the bed for the next unit. Available in heights of up to 3.8 metres, you can select the height that fits your need best. Choose from models that can hold three, four or five beds with optional security gate to prohibit unauthorized use in public spaces. The Bedlift can store up to 5 hospitals beds vertically in a footprint slightly larger than a single bed for savings in excess of 70% of your existing floor space.

There are two configurations, end or side (lateral) loading and 11 models to suit from large beds to stretchers and are optionally available with Anti-Microbial Paint.

The six major benefits by installing Bedlifts are More Floor Space, Safe Handling, Easy Access, Maximum Storage, Fast Retrieval & Small Footprint.
