Greetings,

=20

Go to my website listed below.

=20

Click on demonstrations and you will see a picture
of a pull down electrical cord from a classroom I
use at Baldwin Wallace College. There are 4 in the
room. They work well. As to the source, I do not
have a clue but can find out next week if you
want. =20

Subject: [tap-l]Emergency shower drain?

=20

Hi all. I teach at a small hig school. Physics,
Chemistry & Earth. Our building has been
renovated - in the final stages of cleanup. My
new class/lab is gorgeous. I just have 2
complaints... one which leads to this e-mail. I
realize the purely physics folks probably don't
have emergency showers in their labs, so peek in
your neighborhood Chem lab and tell me....=20

=20

Is it, or is it not standard practice to place a
floor drain somewhere is the vicinity of an
emergency shower?

=20

I have no floor drain anywhere. Even my eyewash
station drains out onto the floor - such that I
can't even place a bucket under it. =20

The engineers/contractors reasoning: "Well its
just for emergencies. A drain is not required by
code. The janitor can just mop up if you ever use
it."

Is this flipping ridiculous, or am I pitching a
fit for nothing?=20

=20

Curious,

Samantha

(if you're curious about the second complaint it
has to do with the 4x4 posts coming down in the
middle of each lab station because they didn't
think(?) to to run the electric and water to the
station while they had the floor all dug up for
the lab sink drains, so they are running down from
the ceiling.... yes, they had to dig drains for 8
sinks... why not a floor drain at the same
time?????) =20
