Taub Products, a manufacturer of dental laboratory and restorative products, has introduced a low-profile emergency eyewash station that adapts to a wide range of office and laboratory faucets. The new station provides instant access to a single aerated water jet to flush the eyes and wash the face of chemical or particulate contamination.
"The unique design allows water to flow normally downward for washing hands, and during an emergency, the user can quickly rotate it upwards, providing a soft stream of water that will wash the face," said Jordan Taub, vice president of Taub. "The user places the water stream on the brow of the nose, and both eyes receive an effective rinse."
Setting this apart from dual-jet designs, the key features of the product include a single rotating nozzle to wash the eyes and face, a low-profile modern design that fits most standard faucets, a flow rate of 1.2 gallons per minute (which exceeds ANSI standards), and a design that prevents standing water, thus reducing the chance for mold development.
