Foot Control Wash Fountains are available in a variety of models for a variety of purposes. Some models are designed for emergencies when the user needs an immediate flushing of the eyes and face. Other models are designed to be foot controlled because hand control is not desired for one reason or another. And other models are foot controlled because a greater flow rate of water is desired.
One of the more popular models of Foot Control Wash Fountains is the Classic Washfountain. It is a washfountain with a large stainless steel circular bowl that measures fifty-four inches in circumference and nine inches in depth. It is designed for heavy duty hand washing and the water activation can be accomplished with either a simple, mechanical foot control mechanism or with an infrared sensor. The approximate flow rate of this model of washfountain is five gallons per minute. The washfountain will operate within a water inflow range of between twenty to eighty pounds per square inch. The bowl is constructed of fourteen gauge stainless steel and is given a polished finish.
Another popular model of Foot Control Wash Fountains is the Pedestal-Mounted Eye / Face Wash Fixture. This model is an emergency wash fountain with an eyewash bowl that is ten inches in diameter. Water flow is activated by either a highly visible push handle or foot operation. The entire unit has a compact design that saves space and can be easily located in any work environment. The washfountain is designed to provide a safe, steady water flow with a water supply range of thirty to ninety pounds per square inch. The sprayhead assembly is stainless steel and chrome plated with twin, soft flow, eyewash heads and protective sprayhead covers. The unit also has a circular spray ring to provide supplemental face spray. It is also made from stainless steel and can operate within a water supply range of thirty to ninety pounds per square inch. This model complies with the relevant requirements of the American National Standard Z358.1-2004 and Uniform Plumbing Code.
A similar model of Foot Control Wash Fountains is the Hand or Foot Operated Eye / Face Wash Fixture with Wall Bracket. This model is also an emergency eye / face wash model that is compact and fits easily into any location. It is mounted on a wall and has a large, highly visible push handle for water activation. It also has a stainless steel foot pedal for water activation.
Some models of standard wash fountains can be converted to Foot Control Wash Fountains with a conversion kit. These kits, sometimes called foot treadle kits, are made from corrosion resistant materials and are easy to install. Usually these foot treadle kits are installed to give the wash fountains an additional option for water flow activation. They are designed to activate the water flow in emergency eye wash situations. The water flow can still be activated by the original method, which is usually a manually operated hand lever or infrared sensor. The installation of a foot treadle kit does not compromise the wash fountain's compliance with ANSI standards. In actuality, the kit compliments ANSI compliant wash fountains. The foot treadle kit is sold with a one year warranty.
