Safety Features of Walk-in Tubs
There is no bathing technology available on the market that's safer than a walk-in tub. Below is our selection of the most important safety features integrated into the walk-in tub.
- Anti-slip floor and seat.
Prevalent among aging seniors are slip-and-fall accidents, which is why there is enough grip inside the interior of these tubs to keep you safe.
- Low threshold entry.
If you have trouble climbing into a regular bathtub, the entrance into these bathtubs can be as low as 0" from the floor.
- Anti-scald technology.
The shower heads and faucets are built to prevent skin burns.
- Emergency switches in different locations.
There are two emergency measures taken to prevent accidental submersions from occurring inside these bathtubs: the first is the emergency that can be located near the control panel or the drain that empty the tub in under a minute, the second is the removable door for a quick rescue.
- Wide doors.
Bariatric patients can find it very easy to enter a tub without having to squeeze themselves through.
- Bacteria and mold resistant Gel Coat surface.
A senior tub is finished with an anti-bacterial Gel Coat to keep you immune from viral contamination.
- Self-cleaning systems.
Not only is the tub shell maintaining bathing hygiene but a built-in purge system is keeping your water lines safe from harmful bacteria and mold build-up.
- Anti-leak doors.
Most walk-in tub manufacturers include a lifetime a warranty on the door seal. These doors keep your bathroom floor clear from any hazards.
- Safety grab bars.
You are given the assistance you need with the left and right-handed oriented grab bars that can be found along the outer rim and inner walls of these bathtubs.
- 17" high ADA-compliant seats.
Without having to strain when sitting down or getting up, the ADA-compliant seats inside the walk-in tub are at just the right height for all seniors.
