Emergency showers are, in theory, as simple as their name suggests. They are emergency units designed to rinse contaminants from an individual’s body. We currently carry emergency showers used with or without heated plumbing, self-contained units, and emergency showers for cold climates. Each one serves a different functional purpose and is self-explanatory by name. Units have been designed with ANSI regulations for the design. Did you know, safety showers must be installed within a 10-seconds walking distance from the site of the hazard and should be on the same level as the hazard along a path that is free from obstruction and distractions? Further, there are specified temperatures that employers and unit owners must comply with. More specifically, the water temperature should be between 60-100 F.
Understanding the specifications of each emergency shower unit is important to the selection process. Consider accessibility, maintenance, and inspection and training before purchase. These three factors must be outlined prior to any emergency shower purchase.We recommend that you contact our consultation team and describe your industry, facility, and needs. Based on the information provided, we will assist you with the selection process so we can ensure you have a unit that will be an asset rather than a detriment in an emergency situation.
