When looking at supply and linen trolleys, go lightweight

Hotels, hospitals and linen services all move huge amounts of clothes, bedding and other items long distances every day.

While it makes sense to invest in a good trolley that will lower employee strain and fatigue while lasting for years, many businesses overlook the importance of choosing a product that is both durable and lightweight.

Finding this good ratio between durability and weight is often rooted in the design of the trolley. For example, a medium-duty trolley will most likely have enough vertical bars to ensure all items stay in their place, but not an excessive amount that would add unnecessary bulk.

However, there are several specifications to look for in a supply and linen trolley aside from the ideal weight. An open supply trolley, for example, is best for carrying bulkier items that can be stacked. These products have three enclosed sides with vertical bars and an open side for loading and unloading contents.

The best models will have a six-wheel configuration that makes manoeuvrability simpler than ever, but also ensures operators can move the trolley in a straight line with ease.

For any operations that deal specifically with linen bags, it may be best to choose a trolley that has three enclosed sides with vertical bars as well as two removable diagonal bars that work to keep linen in even when the trolley is moving.
