AXION MSR is a breakthrough offering from Haws. Axion MSR products are designed to offer medically superior response to any emergency situation. They provide a complete ANSI compliant safety solution coupled with enhanced victim comfort and injury reduction.
ANSI Z358.1 – Requires that a controlled flow of flushing fluid is provided at a velocity low enough to be non-injurious to the user (Section 6.1.1)
EYE/FACE WASH Injury Reduction: Inverted wash streams clear the eye by gently sweeping contaminants away from the eye interior and nasal cavity helping further injury. Increased Victim Comfort: Laminar flow eye/face wash streams provide even consistent, predictable stream height for greater user comfort, encouraging use for the full 15-minute as per ANSI Z358.1 requirement. Medically Superior: Axion MSR is the only eye/face wash duplication the ‘inside-out’ flushing methodology recommended and used by medical professionals.
AXION'S ground-breaking technology continues to change the emergency response landscape by offering the only eye/face wash duplicating the methodology recommended and used by medical professionals.
The human eye is equipped with an automatic lubricating which channels excess fluids away from the ocular surface via the lacrimal punctum. The lacrimal punctum drains excess fluids directly into the nasal cavity. If a chemical is introduced into the eye, nature's own cleansing mechanism can serve to force the contaminant into the nasal cavity, where it can potentially cause further internal injury.
The ideal approach in chemical or particulate eye injuries is to sweep contaminants away from the interior of the eye. This method is practiced in doctor's office and hospitals yet was not followed in the safety industry. Haws® recognized this need to protect the human eye and other internal organs and reversed the water flow to flush from the inside out for maximum effectiveness, injury reduction and enhanced victim comfort.
AXION products are available on the most popular configurations: combination showers as well as wall-mounted and pedestal eye/face washes.
