The Guardian Equipment G5028 is a combination deck-mounted drench hose and eyewash that is activated by pushing a deck-mounted flag handle that stays open until manually closed. The G5043 is similar but is activated by a separate push-down valve mechanism and has only a single spray head which means it does not count as an eyewash under ANSI Z358.1.
Application: Dual purpose eyewash/drench hose unit for deck mounting. Unit meets the provisions of ANSI Z358.1 -2014 as both an eyewash and a drench hose. Unit may be left in the deck flange for use as a fixed eyewash, leaving user’s hands free. Alternatively, unit may be removed for use as a drench hose to rinse any part of user’s eyes, face or body.
Spray Head Assembly: Two GS-PlusTM spray heads mounted side-by-side. Each head has a “flip top” dust cover, internal flow control and filter to remove impurities from the water flow.
Valve: 1/2” IPS brass stay-open ball valve. Valve is U.S.-made with chrome plated brass ball and TFE seals.
Hose: 8’ reinforced PVC hose. 300 PSI maximum working pressure. Note: Hose must be inspected at least monthly for indications of wear, abrasion, loss of flexibility or loosening of end connections.
Supply: 1/2” NPT male inlet.
Mounting: Eyewash assembly has deck flange for countertop mounting. Flange has handle locator guide to position spray heads facing forward at all times.
Sign: ANSI-compliant identification sign, item # 250-006G.
Quality Assurance: Unit is completely assembled and water tested prior to shipment.
BP In-line dual check backflow preventer installed on inlet of hose. Note: Check with code authority for compliance with local plumbing code.
FSH 8 ft. flexible stainless steel hose in place of PVC hose.
HG Undercounter hose guide bracket to prevent hose from tangling or binding.
