The Guardian Equipment GBF1704 pedestal-mounted emergency eye and face wash is activated by pushing a flag handle that stays open until manually shut. This unit is sized to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) in meeting the needs of wheelchair users. Other ADA-compliant eye/face washes include the wall-mounted GBF1721 and GBF1724 as well as the recess-mounted GBF1735DP. The closest non-ADA equivalent is the G1760, however we encourage users to consider universal design principles when selecting safety equipment even if there is no current need.
