The Unlock ‘N’ Roll Bedside Cabinet

Reduce the risk of falls and make Housekeeping’s job easier with the Kindred Bedside Cabinet with Self-locking Caster System.

caster_systemThe Self-locking Caster System is a proprietary design from Stance. You could call this Kindred table– the Unlock ‘N’ Roll Bedside Cabinet. Lift one or both levers on either side of the cabinet to lower hidden casters to the floor. Then, simply push or pull the cabinet to reposition it. Release the levers and the cabinet is locked in place, automatically.

This innovative product increases patient-room safety and caregiver efficiency. The self-locking casters default to the locked position when both levers are released. So, that eliminates the potential for one or more casters to be left unlocked by mistake. It also removes the need for caregivers to kneel and lock or unlock casters one at a time. And Housekeeping can move the cabinet easily and independently to clean the area under and behind the cabinet.

The Self-locking Caster System is an option available in selected case goods collections from Stance.

New – Solid Surface Finishes from Stance

Solid surface material is an attractive, contemporary surface that can be specified in a wide range of colors, designs and configurations. It looks great, but it also possesses qualities that make it a natural for healthcare furniture. Stance offers solid surface as a finish option for selected table tops, overbed tables, chair arm caps and countertops for modular cabinetry.

Solid Surface Options from Stance

Sanitary, hard-wearing and versatile, solid surface material is made for healthcare. And it’s all about the composition. Solid surface material is composed of acrylic resins and alumina trihydrate. So, it’s non-porous and seamless, which means it inhibits bacteria traps and promotes sanitary conditions.

Next, the material is stain-, impact- and heat-resistant. So, it’s well-suited to high-traffic, 24/7 environments. And because of the composition of the surface it can be repaired and restored to its original condition, if necessary.

And it’s versatile. The material has been formed as a surface for a surprising (and creative) array of furniture components and architectural spaces. Look for the solid surface option from Stance on selected freestanding and connecting table tops, overbed tables, chair arm caps for many seating lines and countertops for Matrix, our new modular cabinetry.
