The Edge Protector will help prevent, rips and tears along the horizontal edges and under the surgical trays. The Edge Protector also allows for easier sliding of trays when moved and protects the sterile wrapping from getting caught on wire racks when stored. The Edge Protector also elevates the center of a surgical tray off the "blue wrap" and allows for better circulation of the sterilant and air for faster drying times. It is made from the same material as the Stopper® Foot and Corner Shield and is reposable (multi-use), recyclable and environmentally friendly. The Edge Protector can be used in Eto, Steam and Plasma (Sterrad) sterilization.
