Application: EyeSafe™ faucet-mounted eyewashes convert any faucet into an emergency eyewash station without interfering with normal faucet operation. An EyeSafe™ unit may be installed at any sink, close to where accidents might occur. In an emergency, the unit is quickly located and activated, and provides an unlimited supply of potable water for rinsing the user’s eyes.
Operation: Unlike conventional faucet-mounted eyewashes, the G1201 offers the ability to activate the eyewash in a single motion. The unit is equipped with a diverter valve for the eyewash and a separate control valve for the faucet. Once the unit is installed on a faucet, the faucet may be opened and left “on” to a preset temperature. To use the faucet, the flow of water is controlled by a quarter-turn ball valve and knob at the bottom of the eyewash. To use the eyewash, simply pull the knob on the front of the eyewash. Since the faucet is open, this is the only step required to activate the eyewash. Water pressure holds the eyewash in operation, leaving the user’s hands free, To return to normal faucet operation, push the knob in or turn off the faucet.
Outlet Heads: Outlet heads are mounted 5" apart and 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.
Eyewash Valve: Forged brass diverter valve.
Faucet Control Valve: Quarter turn ball valve with chrome plated brass ball, molded TFE seals and plastic handle.
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.
Quality Assurance: Each unit is completely assembled and water tested prior to shipment.
Important: Faucet-mounted eyewashes, whether manufactured by Guardian Equipment or other companies, require two motions to operate (turn on water, pull knob to activate eyewash flow). Therefore, Guardian does not believe that these units meet the provisions of ANSI Z358.1-2014 as eyewash units. These units are intended solely as supplemental units in addition to dedicated, plumbed eyewash equipment installed in the workplace.
Faucet-mounted eyewashes should be used with cold or warm water only. Use of hot water might cause scalding.
