Barrier Free Shower
Barrier free shower stalls are designed with two things in mind: safety and convenience. Thanks to the curb-free design, users can enter straight from the bathroom floor – whether on foot or in a wheelchair – without the risk of slipping and falling.
Our barrier free showers have no ridge to prevent you from quickly and easily getting into the water. Thanks to the low threshold, these units are perfect for homeowners with disabilities or mobility-limiting health conditions. (Many of our spacious models are even ADA-compliant, making them perfect for aging in place remodeling projects.)
While anybody who values convenience can benefit from barrier-free tubs and showers, the design makes them especially ideal for people who use wheelchairs or walkers to get around the home. The shower openings are wide enough to accommodate for mobility aids; there’s also no curb or ledge to maneuver them over. Homeowners don’t need a loved one’s assistance to transfer in and out, and they don’t have to wait for someone to bring their aid back to them when they’re finished with their shower. With barrier free showers, they can safely enjoy their independence.
Aside from the modified entryway, walk in showers are constructed like typical units. They feature front entryways, often covered with a shower curtain for privacy. The showers have a slightly sloped floor, which allows water to run off into a centrally located drain. Because the drain is lower than the rest of the shower floor, water stays within the unit.
To enhance the user experience, we can outfit our barrier-free shower systems with additional security features. Our best-selling safety package includes:
- Weight-supporting grab rails
- Secured corner seats
- Slip-resistant flooring
Our curbless shower modules are made from a heavy-duty acrylic that will withstand years of regular use, as well as heavy wear from wheelchair traffic. We also prep each unit with Silver Shield™ – a powerful anti-microbial compound that keeps your bath free from mold and mildew. You’ll spend more time enjoying your replacement showers and less time maintaining them.
