Please respond directly to Terri Bechta (tbechta**At_Symbol_Here** .Thanks in
advance for your help in this matter. Yung M. (pmorgan**At_Symbol_Here**  
Subject: Recessed eye wash stations
We currently have specified for our new science building the Guardian
Equipment GBF2150 Recessed Safety Eye/Face Wash Stations.  Pulling down on
the handle and opening cover pulls spray head assembly down from vertical to
horizontal position, activating water flow.  While unit is in operation,
waste water is collected in the drain pan and returned into cabinet for
drainage.  Unit remains in operation until cover is returned to closed
This may be aesthetically pleasing, but I am afraid that the units will
flood the room when opened, leak behind the walls, not dry fully enclosed
behind the walls (contamination), and because the unit is recessed will tend
to be blocked and not tested.  
Has anyone installed these types of units and were there problems with them?
