The Guardian Equipment G1896 is constructed entirely of PVC and PVC-coated brass for superior corrosion resistance. The G1892 is the corresponding wall-mounted unit. The G1796 is identical to the G1796 except it has four spray heads instead of two. Guardian also makes a number of stainless steel eyewashes such as the G1894 pedestal unit.
