Connection to a building management system (BMS) is available as standard on all models. The BMS connection provides real-time alerts and notifications in the event of temperature or power-loss alarms. This way, the BMS will take care of the blanket warmer’s operation, the blanket warmer will take care of warming your samples, and you can focus on your work.
For added safety, we’ve also incorporated an automatic over-temperature alarm in our blanket warmers’ digital temperature control. So if your warmer gets too warm, the alarm emits a visual signal to warn the operator and the heating elements will shut down.

- What is a blanket warmer used for?
A hospital blanket warmer is a device used in medical settings to keep blankets, towels, and other linens warm. It typically consists of a cabinet with shelves or hooks to hold the linens and a heating element to warm them. The cabinet is designed to maintain a consistent temperature to keep the linens warm and comfortable for use on patients.
Blanket warmers are commonly used in hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities to improve patient comfort, reduce the risk of hypothermia, and promote healing. They are also used in operating rooms to keep linens warm and ready for use during surgical procedures.
- Why are blanket warmers important?
Blanket warmers are important for several reasons:
Patient comfort: Blanket warmers provide a warm and comfortable environment for patients, especially in cold medical facilities. This helps to improve patient satisfaction and well-being, which can have a positive impact on the healing process.
Hypothermia prevention: Hypothermia, a condition where the body loses heat faster than it can produce heat, can be a serious problem in medical settings. By providing warm linens, blanket warmers help to prevent hypothermia in patients, especially those who are elderly, ill, or undergoing surgery.
Improved surgical outcomes: In operating rooms, blanket warmers help to keep linens warm and ready for use during surgical procedures. This helps to reduce the risk of surgical site infections, which can be caused by using cold linens on patients.
Convenience: Blanket warmers provide a convenient way for medical staff to access warm linens quickly and easily. This helps to improve the efficiency of patient care and reduce the time required for staff to locate and warm linens.
- What temperature should a blanket warmer be set at?
The ideal temperature for keeping blankets in a hospital blanket warmer varies depending on the specific requirements of the medical facility. However, the recommended temperature range for most blanket warmers is between 32°C and 55°C. It is important to note that the temperature should be carefully monitored and regulated to ensure that the blankets are warm, but not too hot, as excessive heat can cause discomfort and increase the risk of burns.
It is also recommended to follow any specific guidelines or regulations set by the medical facility or governing bodies regarding the storage and use of linens in a hospital setting.
