Folding Shower Chair - Fold Down Shower Seat
Save space in your bathroom with a folding shower chair. There are two folding shower seat designs. One attaches to your bath tub or shower wall and folds down when needed and then is folded back up and secured with a lock or latch when not in use.
The other type folds up, like a folding seat and is easily stored to the side of your tub or shower or in a cupboard where it remains out of the way between use.
What to Shop for with Fold Down Shower Chairs
Always check to see if the fold down shower chair is ADA compliant. The shower seat should hold at least 250 pounds and have welded metal framing for strength.
Non-slip folding shower chair seating is important to keep the user from slipping when the seat is soapy. Non-slip rubberized feet are equally important.
