Zurn AquaSpec®, an integral member of the Zurn Plumbing Products Group, introduces the new Temp-Gard III shower valve. The Temp-Gard III is the latest design in shower valves and its applications include locker room shower facilities in gymnasiums and nautatoriums. The Temp-Gard III is a single-handle pressure balancing mixing tub and shower valve, with a heavy-duty ceramic control cartridge with a stainless-steel balancing piston. It also features a built-in reverse connection capacity. To reverse the hot and cold inlets, simply remove the cartridge and turn 180 degrees.
Included in the innovative design of the Temp-Gard III are two integral service stop/check stops and an adjustable temperature limit stop. For additional user safety the ADA compliant handle operates in a rotational manner, always cycling through cold water before hot. All exposed trim and handle are metal with a polished nickel chrome plated surface. The valve body is a four-port valve with a tub port plug included for shower-only applications. The valve inlet, shower outlet and tub outlet are standard with 1/2-inch N.P.T. female thread connections. Variations of the Temp-Gard III include shower-only units, tub and shower units, as well as hand shower configurations. Various options available, including the Sierra Series decorative trim, available in various finishes.
