The SP-12 diverter valve is available with two different styles of ligature resistant handles, designated "A" and "B". The handles are recessed in an escutcheon plate to prevent capture of a line behind them. The valve has a non-rising stem, which means that no gap is created behind the handles when they are turned. The handles are broached for a secure, non-slip fit to the valve stem. The SP-12 is ADA compliant when used with the "B".
The SP-12 can be used to operate both an SP-7 and SP-7WC in a single shower unit.
