The use of eye-washes and showers can help prevent injuries or permanent damage caused by contaminants. There is often a need for emergency eyewashes and showers in labs, chemical plants, paper mills, and other environments where chemicals or materials may pose a health risk. Generally, they are required to comply with government regulations and safety standards. Eye-wash stations with showers are all-in-one units that accommodate both eye-washing and showering activities. Depending on the application, a drench hose may be used as a fixed eye-rinse station or removed from its holder for flexible spraying. You can install an emergency eye-wash station directly connected to the plumbing system, or you can equip it with a self-contained unit that has a built-in wash tank for personal use. Drenching showers are mounted on ceilings, walls, and floors and can be used during an emergency.
