Traditional baths do not have doors for easy access; instead you have to climb over the side to get into and out of the bath. This can be difficult if you have mobility needs. Walk in baths can make getting in and out of the bath a much easier task.
Installing baths with doors can not only make it easier for you to get in and out of the bath, but it can also give you a measure of independence back as you will not need assistance to get in and out of the tub. This is especially beneficial if you find it difficult getting in the bath but do not have a full-time carer to assist you.
What Are The Key Features Of Baths With Doors?
There are many features of baths with doors but the key attributes include the door itself, the safety seat and quick fill and drainage.
The door of the walk in bath is waterproof and will prevent water spilling onto your floors, which could be hazardous, with their leak seals. These leak seals make the door a tight fit so that no water can leak out onto your floor. The last thing you want is a leaking bathtub! The door is also a key feature because it can open either inwards or outwards. This is useful because if the door opens inwards this can save you space in the bathroom which can be extremely useful if your bathroom is quite small. The inwards opening door can also not be opened if there is still water in the tub. This means that there is no risk of water spilling onto the floor when the door is opened.
Another key feature of baths with doors is the safety seat. This seat can help you get in and out of the bath if you find it difficult to lift yourself from a lying down position. These seats are also slip resistant so you don’t have to worry about slipping in the bath.
Baths with doors also come with quick fill and drainage. This is extremely beneficial because you have to get in the bath and then fill it up as you obviously can’t open the door when the bathtub is full. This means that you will be sitting in the tub waiting for it to fill up, and it takes a long time to fill up like a traditional tub, you could get cold. This is the same as when you are sitting waiting for the water to drain. Baths with doors will fill quickly and drain quickly so you are not waiting around, getting cold which could infer nasty health conditions.
