Sustainable Solutions for Busy Healthcare Environments

At Glasdon, we have over 60 years’ experience in designing, manufacturing, and supplying products which can improve spaces in and around your healthcare environment, enhance site and grounds safety and help to support waste management and recycling.

Glasdon UK serves over 50,000 customers throughout the UK including hospitals and healthcare services as well as national and local government departments. As a company we are constantly evolving to meet the specialised demands of our customers.

With a diverse range of products including award winning litter and recycling bins, road safety products, building and housing systems, shelters, outdoor seating, winter and water safety products we are committed to helping you create a safe and attractive environment.

Working with clinical and non-clinical healthcare customers, we are focused on providing the most effective solutions for NHS Trust facilities, hospitals, pharmacies, community health settings, hospices, and specialist units.

New product development has been a defining element throughout our history. We continually enhance our product range and pave the way in the market by introducing unique products. Working together with our innovative design team, we want to provide real world solutions, tailored to meeting our customers’ needs.

Following in-depth discussions with healthcare pharmaceutical professionals, we identified the need for a secure method of housing unused medicines/drugs prior to their return to pharmacy departments.  The Pharmacy Returns Unit was launched and proved to be a huge success, so a smaller 30 litre unit was designed for areas where space is limited.

A Pharmacy Drop-Off Unit, also available in two sizes, was also introduced. This is a secure method of housing newly prescribed medicines/drugs before they are issued to patients, preventing unauthorised access. When combined with the Pharmacy Returns Unit, it assists in the smooth running of healthcare environments for the effective management and control of medicines.

To adapt to the unprecedented challenges we are currently facing, we have developed a new product range to support COVID-19 measures and health and safety procedures. Our COVID-19 Products are designed for maximum hygiene and visual impact, complete with a long service life. Products within the range include PPE disposal bins, pedal bins, social distancing signage and equipment, temperature checking stations, and hand sanitising units.

Another exciting addition, new to our product range is Nexus® Evolution City Recycling Bin. This external recycling bin is the perfect solution for the collection of up to four separate recycling streams in one large capacity container. With 3 models, 5 configurations and over 50 interchangeable apertures available, the Nexus Evolution City is set to become one of the most flexible external recycling bins on the market!

To help keep your site tidy and litter free, we have a large selection of indoor and outdoor waste and recycling containers, available in a selection of styles, sizes and colours to suit your requirements.  Our best-selling Nexus 100 Recycling Bin is a popular choice, with its stylish and modern design, slim footprint and choice of apertures to suit your recycling needs. Nexus 100 perfectly co-ordinates with the whole Nexus recycling range.

Recently added to our range is Echelon™ Cycle Shelter, a cost-effective solution for bike storage. Delivered fully assembled for immediate installation, this shelter is ideal for use around healthcare sites, for the secure storage of bikes. Cycle toast rack stands are also available to allow bikes to be securely chained.

We also supply a large range of Outdoor Seating, which can provide staff and visitors a comfortable place to sit around your premises. Create an eco-friendly outdoor space, offering a place to socially distance and an area to enjoy some fresh air.

Our extensive range of Buildings & Housings can provide additional secure storage for equipment enclosures, car park entrance gatehouses, or office space. Most of our Buildings & Housings are available to adapt to your exact requirements.

Another group of products within the Glasdon UK range is our Winter Safety Equipment. This includes, Grit Bins, Towable and Manual Gritting Machines, and Snow Removal Equipment, all to help keep you site, grounds and car parks ice and snow free during the winter months and keeping staff and patients safe underfoot.

Whenever possible, we design our products using recycled and recyclable materials. We continually research new sustainable technologies and manufacturing processes to allow us to achieve this. The vast majority of our products are proudly manufactured and assembled in the United Kingdom, which helps ensure our carbon footprint is kept to a minimum.

Our commitment to customer service means that a fully trained team of sales representatives and technical staff are available to our customers for enquiries and after sales service. Whatever your requirements, visit our website to view our full product range, or contact our sales team today.
