Worldwide there is an ever-increasing demand made on the health, safety and welfare of employees as well as oil and petrochemical industries seeking more inhospitable and remote environments in which to extract natural resources. Therefore Showers & Eyebaths Services has developed the technology and specialist engineering skills to design and manufacture emergency showers that provide a guaranteed 15 minutes of tepid water as stipulated by ANSI Z358.1-2009 and that are ideal for external use from -20ºC to +40ºC. Its arctic units are GOST approved and are certified for temperatures ranging down to – 40ºC and up to +40ºC.
