Guardian G1696 Emergency Shower, Free Standing, Stainless Steel Construction

Item #: G1696

Normal Availability: 3-5 business days

Product Description

The Guardian Equipment 1696 shower is a freestanding shower ideal for mounting locations that are not near a wall. 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. If you don't need the corrosion resistance of stainless steel, the nearly identical G1662 is an economical alternative. For a comparable safety station which includes an eyewash as well as a shower, see the G1991 model.
