Press release date: Jun 20, 2017

2,000-Liter Emergency Tank Shower added to Gravityflo® Safety Product Lineup

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 liter (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.

Speakman’s President, Bob Knoll, said, “Remote jobsites and those without plumbed water present unique safety challenges that Speakman is in the business of solving. 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.

  • 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
