People with disabilities and those that find it tough to use a traditional bath or shower may choose to opt for an easy access bath. Easy access baths are great for people who love to enjoy the soothing effects of the warm water. However some people prefer the exhilaration of a shower.
Traditional over the bath showers can make showering dangerous for the most nibble of people, slipping in the shower can be a common accident. That’s not all, to access most traditional showers you need to take a step over the edge of the bath or up into a shower cubical raised off the floor. These issues alone make showering almost impossible for people with disabilities or those who are worried about a slip in the bath.
Walk in showers make showering easier.
A walk in shower not only makes showering easier, it makes showering safer and more convenient.
A traditional stand alone shower features a raised shower tray, this ensures the user needs to take a significant step up to get into the shower. This step up although a lot less than the step over the edge of a traditional bath can often be as hard as stepping into an easy access bath. For many people this step alone is enough to discourage them from using a shower with a traditional shower tray. For people who permanently use a wheel chair, this step ensures they simply cannot enter the shower to transfer to a shower seat.
Walk in showers provide the perfect solution.
Walk in showers come in an array of styles and can have a range of accessories, but principally there are two designs of easy access walk in shower.
Showers with a low profile shower tray
This type of shower is much more like the traditional enclosed shower tray system the difference is these showers have an ultra low step, often only an inch tall. These types of shower are perfect for those people who want to adapt.
Wet room shower systems.
Wet rooms remove the need for as shower tray altogether, instead the floor of your bathroom or shower room is reworked to slope slightly towards a drain in the floor. Wet rooms can be used by anyone young and old, those who use a wheel chair or those who don’t.
