Empteezy achieves industry first as its emergency tank shower is approved by two independent test houses to meet internationally recognised standards. 

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


The SE-VTS -1 guarantees 15 minutes of water flow

Instead of simply going through a process of self-certification, Empteezy has truly gone the extra mile and elected to have its tepid water emergency tank shower undergo independent tests to prove its compliance to international standards.

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 tepid water per minute over 15 minutes met with ANSI standard Z358.1-2014 for the US market and in addition also had the product tested to the same standard by Applus+ Laboratories, one of Europe’s top test & certification organisations.

Applus+ Laboratories also tested the emergency tank shower to verify its compliance with the European Norm; UNE-EN 15154-3: 2010 Safety Showers - Part 3: Body Showers Not Connected to the Water Supply & UNE-EN 15154-4: 2010 Safety Showers - Part 4: Eyewash Units Not Connected to the Water Supply. The tank shower passed the test with flying colours.

Commenting on receiving the accreditations, founding director of Empteezy, Bruce Wishart said:

“I am thrilled the tank shower has achieved the ANSI and EN standards, it’s testament to the high-quality products Empteezy is associated with. Undertaking the test was entirely voluntary, but we were extremely confident in the tank shower’s credentials and knew it would achieve the pass it deserved.”

Andrew Lawrence, group coordination manager at Empteezy continued,

“The tank shower’s new accreditations puts it in a class of its own and also marks the next phase in the company’s business development through being able to showcase products and services on a more international stage. There is plenty to be excited about within the company over the coming months and years.”

Now fully compliant with two international standards (ANSI and EN) and verified by two trusted independent test bodies the emergency tank shower is available with options that include; PIR sensor activated light, eye wash, foot treadle activation, modesty screens and digital temperature/water level gauges.

SE-VTS-1 with optional eyewash basin

The 2,000 litre water tank capacity provides a gravity fed flow rate that surpasses the standards requirements even when an optional eyewash is running at the same time, and the heater ensures tepid water.
