How Can I Convert My Bathtub into a Walk in Tub?
Feb 24, 2016
Menards has an extensive list of walk-in tubs that vary in utility, style, taste, and durability. Listed below are three examples of popular models that encompass elements of what's economical, accessible, and heavy in therapeutic features.
$1,999: Ariel's EZWT-2651 Walk-In Bathtub is 51" wide, 26" long, and 38" tall. This durable vessel has a metal base that's reinforced with gel coat. An economical option for seniors that only need a standard soaker. Soakers, in general, are therapeutic because the water buoyancy takes away most of the force that gravity has on the muscles and joints. This, coupled with the natural effect of warm water dilating the blood vessels, gives the damaged muscles and joints time to heal and repair. As an ADA compliant model with a left-handed inward swinging door, the safety features included here ensure your mobility and independence are intact without the help of a caregiver. Depending on the severity of a wheelchair-bound user's condition, this selection is wheelchair accessible as the seat is positioned close to the door's opening. A 5.75" low threshold entrance, a built-in grab bar, and an anti-slip floor are the important safety qualities featured in this wonderful soaker.

$2,399: Everything you need for a safe bathing experience is meticulously integrated into the design of this beautiful model. The Safety Tubs All-in-One [Model#: SSA4828LJ-BC] is 28" wide, 48" long, and 38" tall. It is wheelchair accessible like its predecessor on the list and has six whirlpool jets ready for a deep tissue massage. Hydrotherapy massages soothe arthritis, treat back pains, accelerate healing of damaged muscle tissue, and relieves anxiety. Its safety features include a watertight door system, a quick drain-fast water removal system, a built-in grab bar, a contoured seat and textured bath floor that resists slips and falls. It can fit into standard tub space with luxury features ranging from easy touch push-button controls to a faucet with hand-held shower wand.

$5,403: Safety Tubs' entry here [Model#: SS8OD5232RD-BC-PC] is a dual hydrotherapy, biscuit colored model with an outward swinging door. At 32" wide, 52" long, and 40" tall, its gel coat reinforced tub shell is equipped with safety features that circle around wheelchair accessibility and independence. The 34" wide door is L-shaped to make way for the seat to be exposed, from the backrest down to the footrest, to enable wheelchair-bound users to slide in with very little effort. This nifty machine incorporates a system of 27 jets in total - 21 for air massage and 6 for water massage - along with an in-line water heater to keep your blissful water massage experience warm for extended periods of time. It has a 7" low entrance threshold and an operating capacity of up to 80 gallons - perfect for bariatric users.
