Good afternoon--We are performing renovations, and the project engineers, citing cost savings, have made the suggestion to install pull-down eyewash stations whi ch are ANSI compliant (what they have suggested is a Guardian GBF 1849 unit that would be sink-mounted and appropriate for both handicapped and other users; tempered water would be piped to the eyewash).If you have experience with pull-down units similar to this and would like to share good/bad/indifferent thoughts on their use in training studen ts, maintenance, and operation, I would welcome your comments--my only expe rience has been with the 'paddle'-type eyewash units which have their own b asin and are generally plumbed to the sanitary line. Please feel free to contact me off-line if you would prefer...I would also be willing to sh are responses (scrubbed of any identifying info) if you would be willing. div>Lastly, if you have labs with these units and your institution is loca ted in Connecticut, Massachusetts, or southern Vermont and would be able to spend 20 minutes showing me them in actual operation, I would be most grat eful!Many thanks to a group with awesome knowledge and experience!
