When it comes to disabled showers you’ll discover a range of options including wide access shower cubicle for disabled users and carer assisted shower cubicle for disabled users. Whatever you’re requirement both these level access solutions cater for walk-in, wheel-in or zimmer-in entry.
If you require more space to enter your shower and manoeuvre; you may be confined to a wheel chair for example, there are a number of wide level access shower cubicles to cater for your needs.
With a range of tray specifications available your disabled shower room can be designed with your individual requirements in mind, making the adaptation fit for purpose and the overall layout safer and easier to use.
In the UK over 6.5 million people are classified as a care giver, which includes professional working carers as well as family carers. With the bathroom being such a high risk, troublesome area, the topic of assisted bathing is an important one to cover.
Carer assisted shower cubicles for disabled users have been purposefully designed for simultaneous use. Concealed behind half-height bi-folding doors this particular shower cubicle design allows for a patient to be washed without the carer getting wet. A shower curtain can also be installed as an additional privacy measure, offering a more dignified experience.
If you have difficulties with mobility then managing the step into a traditional bath or shower cubicle may prove difficult. Providing an easy to use, functional and safe solution, level access shower cubicle for elderly users are the perfect showering alternative and can be installed as a bath replacement.
Featuring a slip resistant tray for added peace of mind, a level access shower cubicle to fit bath space can be installed as part of a complete mobility bathroom solution or as a standalone adaptation.
Concealed behind a glass screen, curtain or half-height bi-folding doors, a level access shower cubicle to replace bath are often a cheaper alternative to ensuring maximum safety for the elderly in the bathroom.
Just because you require a shower cubicle for disabled users it doesn’t mean that the entire room has to look clinical. Accessible bathroom design can be aspirational and it's the little details that can completely transform your adaption from safe to a stylish one.
There are a range of shower seats and styles available that can increase your shower cubicle safety. Whether a wall mounted folding seat, full chair with arm support or bespoke bench, shower seats are a great safety feature, offering peace of mind and while reducing the risk or a slip, trip or fall.
If you’re looking to enhance your shower cubicle safety even further we advise incorporating grab rails into your design.
