Sanctuary's Flexible Choices

AmeriGlide’s Sanctuary Walk-in Tub is a popular choice among seniors. With four different available dimensions available at no additional fees, this reliable bathtub comes equipped with a built-in grab bar and an inward (left-handed/right-handed) swinging door. At 6.25” high off the ground, the low-threshold entrance is designed to prevent accidental hazards upon entry and exit of the tub. It comes with a wall mounted chrome safety bar for extra assistance and a riser rail for the one-piece faucet and hand held shower.

You have the option of adding whirlpool and air jets at an extra fee: $570 for a water jet system, $570 for an air jet system, and $1,130 for both therapeutic systems (dual hydrotherapy systems are only available for certain sizes of this model).

AmeriGlide’s Sanctuary is made up of a durable 7-layer fiberglass body that’s finished with a 7-layer marine grade gel coat. This model is only available in white and cream colors.

A Space Saving Model

A Space Saving Model

AmeriGlide’s Sanctuary Petite Easy Soak Walk-in Tub is a space saver that fits into any bathroom. However, its size doesn’t hinder its ability to be loaded with the therapeutic features that your heart desires.

Apart from the therapeutic benefit of water buoyancy that you get from this standard soaker, you have the choice to add more features at additional costs - $429 for the whirlpool jet system, $572 for the air jet system, and $858 to include both systems. An incredible utility optimizing unit that fits through a 27” wide door and installs in a back-to-wall fashion.

The left-handed/right-handed door hinges attach to an industrial grade, low-maintenance and sturdy acrylic tub body.

It’s impractical to wait for the tub to drain completely every time you want to exit. For $278, you can include an auto drain system which drains the water in less than a minute.
