The Guardian Equipment GBF1671 recessed emergency shower has a ceiling-mounted shower head and is activated by pulling a recessed pull lever that stays open until manually shut. When mounted at the correct height, this unit is compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) in meeting the needs of wheelchair users. The GBF1670 is similar but features an exposed shower head typically used with taller ceilings. The GBF1672 is also similar but features a horizontal wall-mounted shower head.
Application: Recessed emergency shower with ceiling mounted concealed shower head. Recessed shower conserves valuable floor space, while eliminating the clutter and obstruction created by conventional shower equipment. Unit can be installed in either a corridor or a lab room, close to where accidents might occur.
ADA Compliance: When installed at recommended mounting heights, unit complies with ADA requirements for accessibility by handicapped persons.
Shower head: 10" diameter stainless steel with flange for flush mounting in ceiling.
Valve: 1" IPS brass stay-open ball valve with stainless steel “panic bar.” Pulling bar down activates shower; shower remains in operation until bar is returned to original closed position. Furnished with stainless steel access panel and 1" IPS unions for valve.

Sign: ANSI-compliant identification sign, item # 250-009G.
Note: ANSI Z358.1-2014 provides that shower heads be installed no more than 96" above the finished floor. This unit should therefore not be installed in ceilings over 8 feet. For higher ceiling heights, we recommend the GBF1670 shower.
