Guardian GBF2170 and GBF2X72 Series Recessed Safety Stations with Drain Pan, Wall Mounted Exposed Shower Head

Item #: GBF2170

Normal Availability: 5-8 business days

Product Description

The Guardian Equipment GBF2170 safety station features a wall-mounted shower head ideal for mounting in rooms with high ceilings as well as a recess-mounted emergency eye and face wash which is activated by pulling it forward from the wall. The GBF2150 is similar but has a vertically mounted and unconcealed shower head. The GBF2160 is similar except the shower head is designed to recess into standard 8-foot ceilings.

The GBF2172 is the same unit, only it has a "daylight drain" that empties from the front of the unit instead of draining into the building waste lines.  This is useful when connecting to the existing waste line would be expensive or difficult, reducing your installation costs. The daylight drain version comes in several versions; the model numbers with an asterisk are built to customer specifications on demand and are only available by special order (please inquire):
