Guardian GFR1704 Freeze-Resistant WideArea™ Eye/Face Wash, Pedestal Mounted

Item #: GFR1704

Normal Availability: 3-5 business days

Product Description

The Guardian Equipment GFR1704 is freeze resistant because the valve and supply are buried below the frost line and the system drains completely after use. You must determine and specify the bury depth for the valve at the time of order. This unit is ideal for extreme cold and outdoor locations. Similar models are the GFR1825 which is identical except that it has only two spray heads, and the GFR1724 which is a freeze-resistant wall-mounted eye/face wash. 

Features Options

Application: Freeze-resistant WideArea™ eye/face for pedestal mounting. Freeze-resistant valve and supply line are buried below frost line to protect against freezing. Unit is designed to drain completely after use, so that no standing water remains in unit and possibility of freeze-up is eliminated. Since unit is intended for use in cold weather conditions, consideration should be given to supplying unit with tempered water in accordance with ANSI Z358.1-2014. See Tempering Units section for more information.

Spray Head Assembly: Four GS-Plus™ spray heads. Each head has a “flip top” dust cover and internal flow control.

Valve: 3/4" IPS freeze-resistant valve with push plate. Valve body and supply line are buried below frost line to prevent freezing. Valve has 1/8" IPS bleed outlet to permit water standing in unit to drain out after use. Specify bury depth of valve when ordering.

Pipe and Fittings: Schedule 40 galvanized steel. Furnished with orange polyethylene covers for vertical piping for high visibility and corrosion resistance.

Supply: 3/4" NPT female inlet.

Bowl: 11-1/8" diameter stainless steel.
