Walk In Tubs - Walkin Bathtub
Discover the most popular brands of walk-in tubs and their features. Walk-in tubs are growing in popularity.
They're safer for elderly and disabled people making it easier for a senior citizen to retain some privacy while also helping care takers get a difficult job done without stress.
Many elderly men and women struggle with balance issues and weaker muscle tone. Because it's harder to lift a leg, getting in and out of a traditional bathtub is taxing. A walkin bathtub prevents this issue because you simply open a door and walk in.
Envy Walk-In Bathtubs
Envy Walk-In bathtubs come with a handy built-in water heating system that keeps the tub water warm until you're ready to get out. Non-slip flooring, ADA approved contoured seats and built-in grab bars are standard in all models.
The walk-in tubs by Envy feature massage jets and even have towel racks on the other side of the door. Doors are guaranteed not to leak thanks to the lifetime warranty.
Superior Walk-In Tubs
Superior's line of walk-in bathtubs come in a variety of sizes from 48 inches long to 60 inches long. Widths range from 26 to 31 inches. All models have the watertight door, built-in bath seats and are ADA compliant. Heights of the bathtub walls range from 36 to 47 inches. Non-slip flooring and grab bars are standard in all Superior tubs.
Universal Tubs Hydrotherapy Walk-in Bathtubs
Many home improvement stores, such as Home Depot, sell Universal Walkin tubs. The walkin tubs feature a watertight door, massage jets and non-slip flooring. Once the door is open, the step is a meager five inches and that's a height many with mobility problems can manage.
One of the Universal Walkin Tub models is a standard sized bath. The bathing tub is 30 inches wide and 60 inches long making it a suitable replacement tub. It doesn't offer the bath seat, so if you have other family members who want a traditional tub, this is a good model to choose. Make sure grab bars are installed to help everyone rise from the tub safely.
If you want a larger tub, Universal Walkin Tubs also features a taller model. The taller model features the ADA compliant built-in bath chair and a built-in grab bar. It's 30 inches wide and 5 feet long, but the walls of the tub are a little over 3 feet, so it's a taller unit.
