The AntiScald, Inc. Scaldshield Bath is a Temperature Actuated Flow Reducing (TAFR) device that is intended to protect everyone from scalding. The ScaldShield TAFR devices use proven thermostatic element technology for most all showers, faucets and baths. Applications for ScaldShield's TAFR devices are almost endless: private and public housing, child care centers, hospitals, hotels and motels and nursing homes just to name a few. The ScaldShield TAFR is an ASSE 1062 approved thermostatic device that reduces water flow through the fixture to .25 gpm if water temperature exceeds 117° F. It is ideal for new installations or retro fits on bathtub faucets. Once the shut-down has occurred this product will reduce the flow of hot water to a trickle. This continuation of flow is necessary to allow resetting to occur.
