Heat Trace Emergency Shower

Heat Trace Emergency Showers

A Heat Traced Emergency Shower is necessary in cold and freezing environments where a combination shower is needed in case of chemical splashes on the body.


A heat trace emergency shower offer protection in freezing temperatures.  They should be used when the temperature falls below freezing and are designed for outdoor use and also in unheated buildings.   For optimal performance, the supply line for the shower should be freeze protected because water expands as it freezes and the line can expand to break the pipes or block or clog the system.
