July 10, 2017 – Speakman Company, the Delaware emergency eyewash and emergency shower manufacturer, announces the introduction of the Gravityflo Emergency Tank Shower, the newest addition to the Gravityflo Emergency Shower and Eyewash product line. This new Emergency Tank Shower safety product is designed with a mammoth 2,000 litre (528-gallon) tank to solve the dilemma faced by many project managers about compliance with worker safety standards on a job site with no running water or inadequate water pressure. 

“Remote job sites and those without plumbed water present unique safety challenges that Speakman is in the business of solving,” said Speakman president Bob Knoll. “The Gravityflo Emergency Tank Shower was a made-to-order solution for a customer. The result of that custom-engineered project is a new emergency product that can be specified for a host of demanding environments where access to running water is going to be a safety concern.” 

Applications for the Speakman Gravityflo Emergency Tank Shower include job sites without running water and environments where water may be shut off temporarily. Additionally, this emergency tank shower is an ideal unit for older facilities or sites where the pipes cannot produce the 20 gpm flow requirement. 

The Gravityflo Emergency Tank Shower features include: 

  • 528-gallon/2,000-liter capacity; 
  • Integral heater maintains water temperature in the Tepid Range of 60F – 100F; 
  • Not dependent on a plumbed water source;
  • Integrated emergency eyewash with plastic bowl with push-handle activator; 
  • Stainless steel shower head; 
  • Delivers ANSI/ISEA-required 20 gpm flow rate; 
  • Heat-tracing for eyewash and emergency shower piping; 
  • PIR activated area light; 
  • UL-approved electrical components; and 
  • ANSI/ISEA Z358.1 Certified. 

Engineered for demanding conditions, the Gravityflo Emergency Tank Shower also offers a number of optional component upgrades including stainless steel bowl and support frame, treadle plate activator, privacy screens, alarms and digital temperature gauges. Each tank shower comes with a three-year general mechanical warranty and a one year electrical equipment limited warranty and is built to order for each customer’s specific jobsite requirements.
