The Famous Hughes Valve

 ‘It’s what makes Hughes Safety Showers the safest Safety Showers in the world!’

Hughes Safety Shower and Eye wash Valves

Newly designed valves for even greater reliability

On Emergency Safety Showers, the valve is the first point of failure. That's why we have always insisted on using the best. It's the only way to guarantee reliable, long life safety products that consistently deliver the most effective treatment in emergencies.

The use of top quality valves has helped to define Hughes as a market leader for over 45 years and we are constantly striving to make improvements for even better performance.

The new Hughes Safety Shower and Eye wash valves have been designed using the latest 3D modelling software to optimise every aspect of performance. There are 5 sizes and a range of end connections to step up or down to different pipe sizes. Straight or cranked actuator levers can be fitted at 45°or 90° to the valve body providing a choice of operating positions for maximum flexibility.

The valves have a low operating torque for ease of use and comply fully with the requirements of the internationally recognised ANSI (Z 358.1 2014) and EN (15154) standards.
