Empteezy achieves industry first as its safety tank shower meets two international standards

Spill containment specialist Empteezy has proof positive from three independent tests that its emergency tank shower (SE-VTS-1 tank shower) meets the rigorous standards set out by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the three European Standardisation Organisations (CEN, CENELEC, ETSI).

Empteezy worked with IAPMO R&T, North America’s premium plumbing and mechanical product certification agency to demonstrate that the SE-VTS-1 tank shower, which distributes 75.7 litres of temperature regulated water per minute for 15 minutes met with ANSI standard Z358.1-2014. Empteezy also worked with Applus+ Laboratories to verify the product’s compliance with the ANSI standard.

Applus+ Laboratories also tested the emergency tank shower to verify its compliance with the European Norm (EN) standard for one piece of safety equipment.

Bruce Wishart, founding director of Empteezy, said: “Undertaking the test was entirely voluntary, but we strive for excellence and are thrilled that independent testing agencies have verified compliances with the ANSI and EN standards.”

Now fully compliant with two international standards (ANSI and EN) and verified by two trusted independent test bodies, the tank shower is set to achieve international recognition within the emergency shower and decontamination industry.
