Sometimes we need a little extra help with daily hygiene, especially as we age and mobility becomes an issue. Many individuals with mobility challenges opt for walk-in tubs, but if you prefer a shower, DURACARE Baths can arrange to install an obstacle free shower, which is a unit with a low barrier with an open side that is level to the floor. This eliminates the need to step over a high obstacle when entering the shower and also allows for easy wheelchair accessibility. It really is the ideal choice for those with limited mobility who wish to maintain their bathing independence.
If you’ve never seen an obstacle-free shower, the designers at DURACARE Baths can discuss the options with you and show you how your current bathroom could accommodate this accessible feature. We’re experts in making bathrooms that are easily used by those who have trouble walking or standing and we offer a wealth of choices, just like we do with all of our other products.
(Wall Installation in 1 Day!)
If you’re concerned about the cost, you needn’t be. The durable multi-layered acrylic products sold by DURACARE Baths are much less expensive than most traditional materials, so making this one adjustment in your existing bathroom won’t cost a fortune. Compare that to the cost of installing a new tiled shower and you’ll see what we mean!
We’ll take careful measurements of your current shower space in order to achieve an exact fit for your new barrier-free shower and will use our innovative technology and installation tools to ensure that you won’t have any problems with leakage or other issues that could put your shower out of commission. We can also offer a variety of accessories to complement your new obstacle free shower, including built-in shower seats, customized shelving built at proper levels, grab bars, and anything else that will make it easier for the user to use the shower each day.
The acrylic we use for our barrier-free showers is long-lasting and is highly resistant to mold and mildew and doesn’t chip or crack, like tiles and other items that are commonly used in bathrooms. Choosing our DURACARE Baths products for your bathroom re-do also means that you’ll be rewarded with a shower that looks new for many years, simply because it’s sturdy and easy to maintain. Regular light cleaning keeps it looking fresh!
If you’re worried that converting your shower to an accessible one is going to take a long time, we’re here to tell you that with DURACARE Baths the process is quick. In most cases, we’re able to install our obstacle free showers in just one day, so you can get on with your life quickly with minimal interruption to your schedule.
But don’t worry. Quick installation doesn’t mean we’re not thorough. We stand behind our work and our technicians are experts at their craft. We also offer all of our customers a limited lifetime warranty on our custom acrylic products, which will allow you to address any issues that might arrive in the future.
If you or a loved one needs an obstacle free shower, we can provide you with the information you need to get started and arrange for one of our professionals to visit your home to inspect your bathroom and make suggestions for your new barrier-free bath. With your input, he/she will design a new shower to your liking, one that fits your color scheme and your décor.
