In facility planning, a great deal of attention and money is paid to installing emergency eyewash and shower equipment. But often, not enough attention goes to considering the issues of privacy and protection of users, protection of the equipment, water containment, or visibility of the location. In the past, circular shower curtains were the only readily available way to address these issues. Now, emergency equipment enclosures are used more and more to answer these concerns because they are more economical, offer more options, and directly address these important issues.
When enclosures are used outdoors, they offer the same advantages of water containment and waste, user privacy, and visibility. Additionally, outdoor enclosures protect the user against inclement weather, which encourages complete drenching. Outdoor enclosures also protect the emergency equipment from long-term exposure to the sun, wind, dust, and rain.
