Item #: G1898

Product Description

The Guardian Equipment G1898 eyewash features all-stainless steel construction for superior corrosion resistance. This unit mounts to the wall behind your existing sink and swivels out of the way when not needed. These units are available in right and left-handed configurations, each of which has three offset options so as not to interfere with your faucet or operations. The sink is not included.  Similar non-stainless steel models are the G1848 which mounts to the deck next your sink and the G1849 which mounts on the deck behind the sink. ADA-compliant and other all-stainless steel models are also available.

Features Options

Application: All-stainless steel AutoFlow™ eyewash for mounting on wall. Unit is constructed entirely in stainless steel. Ideal for use in highly corrosive environments, cleanrooms and pharmaceutical applications. Spray heads swing down from storage to operational position, activating water flow. Available in a variety of spray head configurations to minimize obstructions at a sink. Note: If unit is not installed at a sink, floor drain should be provided underneath unit to prevent accumulation of water on floor.

Spray Head Assembly: Two GS-Plus™ spray heads. Each head has a “flip top” dust cover, internal flow control and filter to remove impurities from the water flow.
