The Guardian Equipment G1796 is constructed entirely of PVC and PVC-coated brass for superior corrosion resistance. The G1786 is identical to the G1796 except it uses two larger FS-Plus™ spray heads to wash the eyes and face. The G1896 is similar but uses two GS-Plus™ spray heads which wash the eyes only. Guardian also makes a number of other corrosion-resistant eye/face washes in PVC and stainless steel.
