Pelican Post – May 2012
A newsletter to keep you up-to-date with new items from Pelican Manufacturing Pty Ltd
In this issue:
New Product – Wide Sacro-Iliac Belts
Our standard width (7.5cm) Sacro-Iliac belt has been available for many years. We now have a wider version which is 10cm wide.
New Product - Neurological Head Holder & Foam Wedges
The Neurological Head Holder and Foam Wedges are designed as a single use item to hold the head during endovascular intervention operations. The Head Foam section is designed to give a good fit under the head to help stabilise it during operations.
New Product – Flame Retardant Kitchen Apron
The Kitchen Apron is designed to be worn by kitchen staff to help prevent burns or spitting fat and flame flare-ups. The front is made from a flame retardant material made in the USA and is used for a variety of garments in high risk industries. These include shirts, pants, coveralls, jackets, bib overalls, arc flash suits for maintenance & electrical workers and for workers in electric utilities, oil, gas, petrochemical, chemical and ferrous metal industries. The back is made from open netting material, which is not a fire or flame retardant material. This material is cooler and generally protection is only required at the front. There are two pockets at the front, and ties on either side.
Slide Inspection and Repair Service
Pelican has been designing and manufacturing patient lifting slings for over 25 years. Our slings comply with Australian and International Standards, and can be used on most brands of lifting hoists. Due to the increasing demand for us to inspect and repair both Pelican and non-Pelican Slings, we have now introduced an ‘Inspection Fee’ of $15 per sling. This covers the time required to fully inspect the sling for:
Pelican often receives other manufacturer’s slings to repair, which leads us to believe that other manufacturers refuse to repair their own slings. We feel this is unfair to the customer, because it may be perfectly safe to do a repair on the sling, rather than forcing the customer to purchase a new sling. We work out the repair charge based on what repairs needs to be done to the sling. From time to time we inspect slings and have reason to condemn them not to be used. We make this decision for the safety of the user. Unfortunately we still need to inspect the sling before making this decision, so we still need to charge the Inspection Fee.
Coming Soon – Rehab Steps
We have been working on a new item to help with rehabilitation regarding walking. The 100% heat sealed Rehab Step is made from a lightweight, strong material which can be used to replicate a step. As this item is heat sealed it is easy to wipe clean between patients.
