Item #: GBF1643

Product Description

The Guardian Equipment GBF1643 shower is horizontally mounted from the wall and comes with an extended-length activation rod to accommodate the needs of wheelchair users. The unit is activated by pulling on the solid pull rod and the shower valve stays open until the pull rod is manually pushed up. Options include orange, yellow, and green ABS as well as polished chrome-plated brass and stainless steel shower heads. The GBF1635 is similar but designed for vertical mounting. The G1643 is the standard version of this item but we encourage customers to consider universal design when selecting safety equipment.
