The Rubbermaid Step-On Linen Hamper is useful as a laundry container for medical purposes such as lab procedures, patient rooms and emergency rooms. These hampers have a noiseless closing system and large foot pedals that are built to withstand heavy use and enable a sanitary hands-free process. The hamper has an integrated slow-close lid that contains odors and bacteria, and it folds and stores easily. Hamper stands made of chrome-plated steel with high-quality casters and a chrome-plated shelf are also available. The hamper bag, cover and foot pedal are bought separately.
Laundry basket trucks usually have bases made of wood and welded steel frames. They usually have swivel wheel casters and reinforced handles for easy movement, as well. Elevated basket versions make it unnecessary to bend or reach down to get items. Laundry basket trucks are resistant to weather and water and have reinforced critical wear points. Commercial laundry baskets are best used with basket liners from manufacturers such as H.G. Maybeck. Liners made of 10-ounce reinforced vinyl protect the hampers from wearing out quickly. Vinyl is durable, easy to lean and fire resistant.
