X-Carts streamline housekeeping operations

To answer hospitality, healthcare and facility management operators' needs for a large capacity, highly durable and easy-to-store cart, Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP) has recently launched the all-new, collapsible Rubbermaid X-Cart.

The Rubbermaid X-Cart is designed specifically for housekeeping operations in locations from five star hotels to motels, serviced apartments, hospital wards, leisure centres and anywhere else with a regular requirement to remove soiled bed linen and towels for laundry and replenish the room or facility with fresh new items. It is also particularly relevant in facilities in need of collecting voluminous waste, especially when sorting is required with the dual stream configuration.

Designed, engineered and tested to deliver reliable long-lasting performance, the Rubbermaid X-Cart comprises a tear-resistant, black vinyl bag hung on a sturdy powder coated metal frame. The bags and frames are sold separately by Rubbermaid.

In use, the Rubbermaid X-Cart is lightweight and very easy to maneouvre even when carrying a full load. The cart is also highly presentable and will not look out of place in the corridors or public areas of even the most upscale property. A further product feature is the non-marking castors which ensure that the Rubbermaid X-Cart rolls smoothly and quietly over various floor surfaces, thereby avoiding disturbance of the guests or building occupants.

The new Rubbermaid X-cart is available in 150 litre or 300 litre capacity models. To further enhance employees' productivity, two 150 litre bags can be fitted on the 300 litre frame to allow content separation, being dirty and clean linen, or segregated waste.

Productivity can be further improved thanks to the optional pocket organiser keeping cleaning tools and supplies within easy reach. Whether using the 150 litre, 300 litre or dual stream model, the load capacity of the Rubbermaid X-Cart is 100kgs.

When not in use, the X-Cart can be manually collapsed in seconds so that it occupies minimal storage space. The incorporation of bumper guards in the X-Cart's design further helps to protect the frame from damage during storage or use.
