HEPACART® products are designed specifically to meet your application and we have a product available that can meet every budget.  HEPACART® is the best value in infection control during construction, maintenance, or renovation. Custom or spec built carts are also available for certain applications.

HEPACART® models are designed to protect patients and productivity. Most of our carts are ordered with an embedded Negative Air Machine (NAM) to make them quick to set up, move, and reset. Every HEPACART receives HEPA filter integrity tests (IEST-RP-CC0034.2) as well as particulate tests for ISO 14644 Class V air. Certification paperwork is included in each purchase and valid for one year.Certified HEPA with a MERV rating of 18 plus.  

HEPACART® products are made from aluminum and are rugged, long term investments. Unlike plastic or plexiglass dominated products, our aluminum carts are grounded via the electrical option (option E standard with all pre-packaged U-models) and will not build up a static charge across its surface, which can endanger electronic circuitry and create an ion charge that traps dust and bacteria. Aluminum is also resistant to stain and discoloration and easier to clean. According to contractors and hospitals, the HEPACART® is far superior to vinyl zip lock tents and tents on wheels in terms of productivity, safety, and long term value.

HEPACART® has an entire line of infection control carts. Our Dust Buggy™ line is designed to collect dust from ceiling work.  The Dust Buggy™ can be equipped with a connection (Option IA) to an external Negative Air Machine (NAM). The HEPACART® ceiling access cart comes standard with the embedded, certified NAM and can be equipped with a connection to exhaust filtered air away from the work area (Option EA).  Option "E" for electrical and "N" for NAM is required for filtration for all custom HEPACART® orders.
Our HEPACART® model carts are noted for ceiling access work. In 2014, we launched a dual access cart that provides both ceiling and wall access. Please contact us at info@hepacart.com or (913) 789-9590 for more information.

This depends upon the specifics of the infection control plan. Individual hospitals, each state, and joint council have standards for the use of collection or  filtration devices in different risk areas. Consult your local hospital for their specifics.  HEPACART® is required in some pharmaceutical and data applications. You can find out more about use requirements in Compliance Standards.
One person can easily pull a HEPACART®. All four casters swivel and two of them can lock. Each caster also has a locking brake. One person can also raise and lower the enclosure poles in just a few minutes. Consult your local hospital for their OSHA related policies that may require more than one person.

Our HC74U will accommodate most ladders up to 8 ft. Our extra widecarts (39") accommodate a 10 foot ladder. Taller extension ladders are used with proper safety precautions.
HEPACART® provides standardl PTC or PTFRC for "pass through slips" that enable you to pass conduit, wire, small tools, and equipment from one person outside the cart to a person inside without shutting down the negative air machine, compromising air pressure or opening the door.
