Recessed Safety Station with Wall Mounted Exposed Shower Head, 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 wall mounted exposed 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.
