The Guardian Equipment GFR1909 combination safety shower and eye wash is freeze resistant because the valves and supply line are buried below frost depth and the system drains completely after use. You must specify the valve bury depth at the time of order. This unit is ideal for extreme cold and outdoor locations. The GFR1902 is similar but the eye wash has four spray heads to cover the full face as well as the eyes. The GFR3000 series of products are electrically heated and insulated systems for those that need an even more robust cold-weather solution.
Application: Freeze-resistant combination eyewash and shower safety station. Freeze-resistant valves and supply lines are buried below frost line to protect against freezing. Unit is designed to drain completely after use, so that no standing water remains in unit and possibility of freeze-up is eliminated. Since unit is intended for use in cold weather conditions, consideration should be given to supplying unit with tempered water; see the Application Note in the right column for more information.
