Frontier launches new 1.8L Sharpsafe container

New to our Sharpsafe range, and one of biggest developments in the portfolio, is the 1.8L, designed specifically for the safe disposal of insulin and needle pens.

For many people who need to dispose of their pens or needles at home, the only options are often large, ungainly sharps containers or smaller ones which do not easily accommodate pens vertically.  We wanted to change that. The new containers allow easier disposal but with a smaller container. Whilst disposal is of course only one small part of someone’s day to day life, if we can help make it a little bit easier, it really could make a significant difference.

Our new 1.8L container can hold 20 needle pens vertically* and also features an aperture to remove needles if required.

*Based on a standard needle pen width of 17mm

Sharpsafe 1.8 Litre

The 1.8L container is designed for both community and hospital use and can be used with the Sharpsafe Tray as part of the Sharpsafe Near Patient Sharps Disposal System (NPSD).

The 1.8L container has two apertures, one for the disposal of used sharps, the other contains a needle removal feature. The lid is semi-translucent and has a clearly visible fill line to help ensure the product is not overfilled.
