How to choose the right disability shower for your home

Enjoying a relaxing bath or shower at home can be a great way to unwind and get rid of stress, aches and pains. But if a standard bathroom setup presents access problems for you, then bathing at home can create more stress than it relieves – as well as posing potential safety hazards. Here at the Bath Mobility Store, we run through the different kinds of bath and shower units we provide and whether they’re right for you and your home.

Walk-In Bath Units

Walk-in baths provide easy access to your home’s bathroom facilities, and are perfect for those who are generally still able to get around without much difficulty but may still struggle or feel unsafe when trying to climb over and into a conventional bath.

Here at the Bath Mobility Store, we stock a range of different units allowing easy bathing with a minimal amount of hassle thanks to the easy-access side doors and slip resistant bases. Our selection includes traditionally styled bath units, as well as walk-in baths featuring contoured seats for extra comfort when bathing.

Wet Rooms & Wheelchair Accessible Showers

Wet rooms or wheelchair accessible showers are a fantastic choice for a number of different reasons, whether you’re trying to make the most of the space in your bathroom or would simply find using something with such simple access the best option for you.

The best part about both styles of disability shower is that they provide an excellent bathing solution for anyone with difficulty getting around or a disability that usually impairs their use of standard bathroom fittings. Wet rooms provide you with a uniformly level surface in your bathroom, both in and out of your shower, as well as the option for secure and comfortable folding chairs, meaning that even if you’d have difficulty accessing a conventional shower base then you’ll be able to shower in comfort in your home.

All of our wheelchair accessible showers have strong reinforced GRP bases able to take up 25kg (39 stone) of weight and secure doors with 180 degree hinges, eliminating usual difficulties associated with accessing a shower in a wheelchair.
