Do you need to add an eyewash station to your lab or workshop but just can’t find enough space? Or perhaps you work around hazardous materials and need an eyewash station that can be installed on an existing sink. 

Meet the 8450 Series from Chicago Faucets, a full-service faucet and eyewash station that fits on a standard sink and takes up no more space than an ordinary faucet.

Safety Requirements

Labs and hazardous materials sites are required by national and local codes to provide safety equipment such as eyewash stations. For example, ANSI/ISEA Z358.1-2014 American National Standard for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment says, “manufacturing and processing facilities, construction sites, laboratories, medical and healthcare facilities, refineries, and other workplaces” must install and maintain emergency equipment. 

OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.151(c) puts it this way: “Where the eyes or body of any person may be exposed to injurious corrosive materials, suitable facilities for quick drenching or flushing of the eyes and body shall be provided within the work area for immediate emergency use.” 

When you add the 8450 Series from Chicago Faucets to an existing sink, you can bring your facility into compliance with an easy install and practically no downtime. Plus, the 8450 Series meets these codes and standards: 

  • ANSI/ISEA Z358.1 

  • Certified to NSF/ANSI 372 

  • ASME A112.18.1/CSA B125.1 Certified 

  • Complies with ADA requirements as specified in the American with Disabilities Act.
