draw sheet

A sheet folded under a patient so that it may be withdrawn without lifting the patient. This is accomplished by turning the patient to the side of the bed to allow one side of the sheet to be removed and replaced with a clean one. The patient is then turned to the other side of the bed. The soiled sheet is removed and replaced with a clean one. In most inpatient facilities, draw sheets have been replaced by paper and plastic pads that resemble disposable diapers.

The sheeting process starts with the positioning of the paper reel on the machine, to be unwound ready for slitting and cross-cutting.
As the web of paper is fed into the slitting section, two issues impact the sheeting line's overall flexibility and production efficiency.
Having tackled format flexibility upstream in the sheeting process through rapid automated reel changes and push-button variations in slitting width, sheeting equipment manufacturers have focused on introducing solutions that allow the mill to make frequent changes to cut-off length in the shortest possible time.
Extruded TPO sheeting is also expected to make its mark in building and construction.
