Horned, a division of Homak Manufacturing Co., Inc., has introduced the Latex-Free Cart. This orange latex-free cart will provide an easily recognizable alternative cart to house products for those sensitive to natural rubber latex.

Orange is the designated latex- free color in all healthcare settings. Patients allergic to latex can be given orange wristbands as an alert. The Latex-Free Cart identifies the location of latex-free gloves, surgical tape, wristbands and other latex-free items. Allergies to latex appear to be caused by proteins in the latex. Allergic reactions can range from hives to anaphylactic shock and, in extreme cases - death.

The 5[inches] swivel casters permit easy rolling, while built-in brakes prevent unnecessary roll and swivel. The white ABS plastic work surface is impact resistant and easily removed for cleaning.
