TAUB Products, Jersey City, NJ, has introduced a low-profile emergency eyewash station. Adaptable to a range of office and laboratory faucets, the station provides instant access to a single aerated water jet, flushing the eyes and washing the face of chemical or particulate contamination.
The design allows water to flow normally downward for washing hands; but, in an emergency, the user can quickly rotate it upwards, providing a steam of water that will wash the face.
Unlike dual-jet designs, this emergency eyewash station includes a single rotating nozzle. It features a low-profile design that fits most standard faucets and a flow rate of 1.2 gallons per minute—exceeding ANSI standards. According to the company, which manufactures dental laboratory and restorative products, the design prevents standing water, reducing the chance for mold development.
