Why Choose a Hughes Self-Draining Shower?

The self-draining safety shower and eye wash models are suitable for use in tropical climates where the power of the sun can heat standing water within the pipes of the safety shower to temperatures as high as 50°C (122°F), resulting in a high risk of shock and scalding to a casualty when activated.

The design of these models allows standing water to drain away from the standpipe ensuring the delivery of tepid water in the event of an emergency. The valve is situated directly above the water inlet; the bleed pipe is then fitted above this so standing water can drain into the ground. The standpipe only fills with water when the shower is activated and drains once again when the valve is closed to prevent stagnant water in the standpipe overheating from solar radiation and removing the risk of further injury to the operator.
