Speakman has announced the introduction of its Lifesaver Emergency Shower Head, a safety shower head providing a spray strong enough to cleanse away harmful chemicals but soft enough to be used comfortably in labs, industrial buildings and other settings requiring emergency shower capabilities. The Speakman Lifesaver Emergency Shower head lineup features a new, high-performance spray engine that delivers water quickly, but remains comfortable enough for a user to stand under the spray for a full 15 minutes — the amount of time required to ensure effective washing after exposure to hazardous chemicals, says the manufacturer. Innovations in the new product line includes an integral flow regulator that controls the water flow to 20 gallons per minute (gpm). Integral flow control also allows for emergency shower head and eyewash use, simultaneously and with maximum effectiveness. Featured on all Speakman Emergengy Deluge Showers, the ANSI/ISEA Z358.1-certified Lifesaver range includes three products: 8-inch bright yellow ABS plastic featured on all safety showers; 8-inch stainless steel finish; and 10-inch stainless steel finish, which is featured on recessed shower and combination units. Lifesaver Shower Heads also can be easily retrofitted to update products already in the field. The shower heads also drain water completely, eliminating the worry that water will collect and freeze in very cold environments.
