Product Description

The Guardian Equipment Barrier-Free GBF1849 eyewash mounts to the deck at the rear of 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 models are the standard G1849, the  G1805 which mounts to the deck next your sink and the G1848 which mounts on the wall behind the sink. All-stainless steel models are also available.
