Application:EyeSafe™ faucet-mounted eye washes convert any faucet into an emergency eye wash station without interfering with normal faucet operation. An EyeSafe unit can be installed at any sink, close to where accidents might occur. In an emergency, units are quickly located and activated, and provide an unlimited supply of potable water for rinsing the user’s eyes and face.
Outlet Heads:Outlet heads are mounted 5” apart deliver a soft, aerated flow of water. Heads angle forward and inward toward user. Angle of heads is adjustable to permit full coverage and avoid splashing. Furnished with float off dust covers to protect outlet heads.
Valve:Forged brass diverter valve. Pull knob to activate eye wash; water pressure holds eye wash in operation, leaving user’s hands free. Push knob or turn off faucet to return to normal faucet operation.
Inlet:Body has 55/64”-27 female thread. Furnished with three adaptors (15/16”-27, 13/16”-27 and 3/8” IPS) for installing on most commonly used faucets, including laboratory-type faucets.
Outlet: Furnished with removable aerator on bottom. Adapter with 3/8” IPS female thread (for installing serrated hose end or other lab outlets) is also included.
Quality Assurance:Each unit is completely assembled and water tested prior to shipment.
Important: Faucet-mounted eye washes, whether manufactured by Guardian Equipment or other companies, generally require two motions to activate water flow (turn on water, pull knob to activate unit). Therefore, Guardian does not believe that these units meet the provisions of ANSI Z358.1-2004 as eye wash units. These units are intended solely as supplemental units in addition to dedicated, plumbed eye wash equipment installed in the workplace.
Faucet-mounted eye washes should be used with cold or warm water only. Use of hot water might cause scalding.
