Redecorating your bathroom for better accessibility takes a lot of consideration. Including a walk in shower is the best way to make taking a shower easier and safe.

FAQ About Walk In Showers

Before making any decisions, it is best to gather as much information as possible. To help, we have answered some frequently asked questions about walk in showers, including what they are, what makes them safe and installation.

What Is A Walk In Shower? – A walk in shower is a disabled and easy access solution for anyone who struggles getting in and out of regular showers. They have become a necessity for the elderly, disabled and anyone else who suffers from mobility problems to keep up hygiene and maintain independence.

How Do Walk In Showers Work? – A walk in shower is easier to access because of the lower level trays which reduce the chances of accidents. At Bathtime Mobility, we have a wide range of different shower trays so all needs are catered for. The doors to the walk in enclosure include half height and full height options. Half height doors are perfect for anyone who needs extra help.

What Other Features Does A Walk In Shower Include? – A disabled shower comes with thermostatic controls which keep the water temperature constant and pleasant to avoid any scalding. Grab rails are a must so users have something to grab hold of in the event of a fall or throughout the shower to keep steady. Most showers will come with a seat, which are beneficial to anyone with joint issues.

What Are The Different Types Of Shower Trays? – We offer step-in shower trays, low-level shower trays and level access trays so there is an option to suit everyone. Step-in trays are great if you want to install a tray on top of your existing floor and have enough mobility for a small step up. Low-level trays will require some alteration to your house, but eliminate the need to step up. If small steps are not a problem, then this is a great option. Level-access trays are built into the bathroom floor and allow access for wheelchair users.

How Are They Installed? – We will carry out a free assessment and installation survey and offer advice on any electrical, plumbing or minor building working which is required. Our trained installers will then discuss details of the agreed installation just in case any alterations are needed. They will remove any waste as part of the installation process and after completion will provide a thorough demonstration of all products.
