Health & Safety – Stay Safe

Working safely by wearing PPE (especially Category 3) could help avoid an accident/develop an illness which may affect your personal and family life.

So, protect the folks you care for by protecting yourself.

Vitrile Gloves

Introducing Vitrile

Introducing Vitrile Disposable Gloves

Vitrile is up to three times stronger than vinyl gloves, but only around half the cost of nitrile gloves. Engineers developed vitrile specifically to fill some of the gaps left by the other synthetic, latex-free gloves.  As a result, vitrile gloves are affordable, durable, and comfortable option to nitrile gloves.

Advantages:

  • Safe to use for those with latex allergies
  • Super strong puncture and tear resistance
  • Superior grip
  • at £37.50 per 1000 – significantly less expensive than latex or nitrile!

According to one study in the British Dental Journal, vitrile gloves offer more touch sensitivity than either vinyl or nitrile.

We understand that as this is a relatively new product and you would need to see how vitrile performs in your studio. So, for free samples to trial simply email us at sales@medi-inn.co.uk and indicate the size required.

Please note: we also supply double blade razors at £56.10 per 1000. If you’d like razor samples too, let us know.

ASAP Innovations ensures Medi-Inn’s PPE supply to UK healthcare sector is maintained throughout pandemic 

Medi-Inn/ASAP

Certified PPE manufacturer and leading supplier of medical and hygiene consumables join forces to ensure the UK healthcare sector continues to have access to certified PPE

Following an unreliable and sporadic PPE supply during the beginning of the pandemic, supplier of medical and hygiene consumables, Medi-Inn partnered with ASAP Innovations, a leading manufacturer of medical PPE for the healthcare industries, to ensure dependable and trustworthy supply of critical equipment.

Throughout 2020, Medi-Inn – which manufactures and distributes medical and hygiene products to the UK healthcare sector – saw its supplies of medical gloves became sporadic and unreliable due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many central governments were buying PPE directly from manufacturers and as a result, manufacturing companies were bypassing distribution companies, even suppliers they had worked with for years. At the same time, demand continued to increase throughout the summer of last year and Medi-Inn was in need of a reliable and certified PPE provider that could ensure it was able to keep serving its customers at this difficult time.

Wayne Dobson, Managing Director, Medi-Inn explains, “In 2020 we were approached by ASAP Innovations as it was seeking a glove distributor in the medical field. While the brand was fairly new to us, we were familiar with its impressive presence in Asia and everything we had heard about the manufacturer was very positive. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect as a partnership with ASAP Innovations meant we were able to continue supplying certified and high-quality PPE to our loyal and longstanding customer base, at a time when they needed our supplies the most.

“ASAP Innovations’ packaging stands out from other products on the market and it also incorporates a grading system so that the different glove types are easily identifiable, which ­– as far as we are aware – is fairly unique. In fact, this design feature of the products is something we leverage in our marketing activities as the colour coding certainly increases brand awareness. We have been particularly impressed with ASAP Innovations’ development initiatives and are looking forward to supplying its soon-to-be launched vitrile gloves and children’s face masks.

“Despite the challenging circumstances we find ourselves in, the support levels we have received from ASAP Innovations has been second to none which has made our partnership run that extra bit smoother. PPE is the sort of product where customers would complain if they had problems with the quality of the products and seeing as we have had no complaints about ASAP Innovations products, we have the reassurance that our customers are more than satisfied with its products.

“When ASAP agreed to fulfil our requirement for the rest of 2020 and up until October 2021 we were delighted, and I believe this is just the beginning of a long-term relationship where Medi-Inn can help establish the brand in the medical and hygiene sector in the UK. We are excited for what’s to come from our partnership with ASAP Innovations and we look forward to expanding business with the manufacturer in the months ahead,” Wayne concludes.

Sean Keller, Managing Director, ASAP Innovations adds: “We are delighted to have entered a partnership with a highly regarded supplier of medical and hygiene consumables to the UK healthcare sector. It goes without saying that healthcare workers have gone above and beyond to serve the public throughout what has been a very challenging year and we are very glad we have been able to continue supplying PPE to the people that need it the most, through our trusted partner, Medi-Inn. This is just the beginning of our partnership and we are thrilled to be able to continue providing certified PPE to the UK’s healthcare sector.”
