The Guardian Equipment GFR1205 shower is designed for cold weather and outdoor operations and is horizontally mounted from the wall. The unit is activated by pushing the aluminum flag handle and the unit stays on until the handle is manually reset. As shown on page 2 of the product specification sheet (below), this unit gets its freeze resistance by having the valve located within the heated envelope of the building. Please specify wall thickness when ordering.
Options include orange, yellow, and green ABS as well as polished chrome-plated brass and stainless steel shower heads. The Guardian models GFR1902 and GFR1909 another freeze-resistant shower option and they contain an eyewash and eye/face wash, respectively. For the most demanding applications the heat-traced and insulated-jacked GFR3100 series is another option, albeit a significantly more expensive one.
