Recessed Safety Station with Recess Mounted Shower Head, Drain Pan and Daylight Drain, Fire-Rated Construction
Application: Recessed barrier-free eye/face wash and shower safety station for use in 1- and 2-hour fire-rated walls. Unit has recess mounted shower head and drain pan. Stainless steel cover provides attractive appearance and protects unit when not in use. When activated, cover serves as pan to collect waste water and return it into unit for drainage. Rather than connecting to building drainage system, unit has 1-1/2″ OD drain connection on front of unit for waste water. Front drain provides for less costly installation while facilitating regular testing of unit.
Fire Resistance: Unit can be used in 1- and 2-hour fire-rated walls without compromising integrity of wall. Unit has endothermic ceramic fiber blanket around cabinet and is sealed with fire barrier caulk. Unit is UL-listed as “Through-Penetration Firestop System No. W-L-7167.” Use fire barrier caulk when installing unit.

U.S. Patent 5,768,721
Note: ANSI Z358.1-2014 specifies that shower heads be installed no more than 96″ above the finished floor. This unit should therefore not be installed in ceilings over 8 feet. For higher ceiling heights, we recommend the SSBF2352 or SSBF2372 units.
