New SEF-1880 Eyesaver makes OSHA and ANSI compliance easy
(PRUnderground) November 12th, 2020
With tens of thousands of people experiencing work-related eye injuries every year, emergency eyewash stations play a critical role in any work facility where chemicals are handled or stored. The Speakman Eyesaver is the original patented eyewash and faucet combination with dual waterways that easily installs on an existing sink.
Expanding on the patented offering, Speakman, a manufacturer of premier plumbing products, adds SEF-1880 Eyesaver to its eyewash station selection. It incorporates two separate water channels in the faucet body, one for the eyewash and the other for the faucet. When combined with a thermostatic mixing valve, this dual design ensures that the integrated eyewash delivers a consistently safe, tepid water temperature when flushing the eyes while Speakman’s signature Optimus aerated spray creates a gentle cleansing experience for the affected eye area. The unit is activated by a single pull on a well-marked, dedicated lever.
“Providing employees emergency eyewash stations is critical in environments that involve hazardous substances,” says Cathy Gutkowski, Speakman’s director of Commercial Plumbing. “In the ever-changing landscape of fluctuation demand and production, our Eyesaver products make it easy to maintain or scale up the safety equipment if needed.”
The SEF-1880 Eyesaver features a ceramic disc handle cartridge and is easily connects to any point-of-use emergency thermostatic mixing valve. The faucet flow rate is 1.2 gallons per minute (gpm) while the eyewash flow rate is 2.0 gpm at 30 PSI. It is certified to meet all relevant OSHA and ANSI requirements.
Based in Pennsylvania and over 150 years old, Speakman pioneered the invention of the modern shower head. Today the company is part of the Professional Plumbing Group and pursues innovation with a focus on performance and sustainability. Speakman produces a full line of well-designed, commercial-grade bath and showering products for the residential, commercial and hospitality markets, as well as safety equipment including emergency showers and eye washes for commercial use.
