AXION Advantage® Upgrade Kit
The Haws® AX14S AXION Advantage® stainless steel eye/face wash and shower system is designed to replace outdated, under-performing or in some cases, non-conforming installed emergency eyewash/shower combinations with the medically superior AXION® MSR performance. This revolutionary inverted flow design is the only product on the market that provides a Medically Superior Response consistent with all EMT, emergency room and doctors' office protocols by sweeping contaminants away from the vulnerable nasal cavity. Traditional eyewashes irrigate from the outside edge of the eye back toward the nose, where contaminants can then be flushed into the nasal cavity through the lacrimal punctum, nature's ocular cavity drain. AXION MSR also offers a hydrodynamic shower design that minimizes the strong physical pressure that drives the water to the outer rim of normal showerheads, making the distribution equal across the entire footprint of the flow. Better use of the water flowing through the shower makes it more effective while providing a more comfortable environment by breaking the streams of water into smaller individual droplets. System includes the AXION MSR stainless steel eye/face wash head and showerhead, the necessary connecting hardware, along with a tape measure, eyewash measuring gauge and written guidelines to assure installation complies with the ANSI Z358.1 standard. System is designed to replace the eyewash and shower head of most standard floor standing emergency combination stations manufactured by Acorn®, Bradley®, Encon®, Guardian and Speakman®.
The AXION Advantage system is ANSI compliant when installed correctly based on manufacturer guidelines and when tested against the ANSI Z358.1-2009 checklist included with the product. The materials provided offer complete ANSI compliance tools and instructions. At the current time, ANSI does not regulate product brands, models, or the interchange of product components.
