Guardian GBF1721 Barrier-Free WideArea™ Eye/Face Wash, Wall Mounted, Stainless Steel Bowl and Skirt

Item #: GBF1721

Normal Availability: 1-2 business days

Product Description

The Guardian Equipment GBF1721 wall-mounted emergency eye and face wash is activated by pushing a flag handle that stays open until manually shut. This unit is sized to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) in meeting the needs of wheelchair users.  A vandal-resistant version of this unit is available as item # GBFVR1721. Other ADA-compliant eye/face washes include the pedestal-mounted GBF1704, the wall-mounted GBF1724 (which is similar the G1721 but lacks the skirt), and the recess-mounted GBF1735DP. The closest non-ADA equivalent is the G1721, however we encourage users to consider universal design principles when selecting safety equipment even if there is no current need.
