Guardian G1658 Emergency Shower, Semi-Concealed, Stainless Steel Shower Head and Pipe

Item #: G1658

Normal Availability: 3-5 business days

Product Description

The Guardian Equipment G1658 shower has a semi-recessed design for installation in ceilings 8 to 10 feet above the finished floor. The unit is activated by pulling on the solid pull rod and the shower valve stays open until the pull rod is manually pushed up. This unit is functionally similar to the G1629 which is a fully recessed design intended for use in standard 8-foot ceilings. If you have very high ceilings, consider a regular horizontal mount model like the G1643. The GBF1658 is the ADA-compliant version of this model; we encourage all users to consider universal design when purchasing safety equipment even if there is no current need.
