Save Lab and Classroom Space with Halo™ Swing Activated Faucet and Eyewash

Tight on space? Optimize space in your classroom or laboratory with Bradley’s new combined Halo Swing-Activated Faucet and Eyewash. This innovative space-saver features a gooseneck faucet for regular use, such as handwashing, and a built-in emergency eyewash featuring Halo™ technology that is proven to deliver the most effective eye washdown coverage available.

How the fixture works

During regular faucet use, the eyewash is stored out of the way. In an emergency, the Halo eyewash is immediately activated when it is swung out 90 degrees over the sink. When the eyewash is activated, the swing-activated design ensures the faucet moves out of the way, deactivating the faucet in less than one second, and positions the eyewash directly over the sink for unobstructed access to the fixture. With the eyewash in the optimal position over the sink, water is contained in the sink without dripping or spraying on countertops and floors, which can create mess and risk of slipping and falling. 

Reliable long-term performance

Designed with a durable ceramic valve that limits wear and tear on moving parts, this swing-activated model provides dependability and long-lasting performance. The faucet can be activated by three different options – two handle hot and cold ceramic control valves, single tempered water control valve or single lever manual mixing and control valve.

In addition, the eyewash is fully functional even under low water pressure conditions (30psi). The Halo eyewash is mounted lower to the deck rather than on the top of the faucet, providing more convenient and comfortable use of the emergency fixture compared with competitive models on the market, and reinforcing stability and durability of the fixture during use.

Hygienic and versatile design

The Halo eyewash includes an integral strainer to reduce debris in the water and prevent clogging, while the self-draining sprayhead ensures no stagnant water remains for any bacteria to grow. Two models are available, with eyewash access on either the left or right side of the fixture, providing a reliable, compact and convenient faucet and eyewash for a variety of work environments, including educational applications, laboratories, healthcare and pharmacy settings, testing and R&D facilities, and more.
