The easy-access baths in our range come in all shapes and sizes, from full length baths to models which are smaller and are perfect for small bathrooms. The baths are designed for users with mobility issues, and they feature slip resistant floors and instead of having to hop over the side of the bath, there are side entries and easy ways of opening the door so you can enjoy a bath without any help. The walk in showers in our range also have features that make them easy for people with limited mobility.
Arranging a home visit or contact-free home assessment with Handicare can help you assess the options that are available to you and learn more about the different safety features available with each model. It can also help you to decide which walk in baths and showers would suit your individual needs, and, most importantly, you can talk to a mobility bathroom professional who can answer any important questions you may have about walk in baths and showers.
If you want advice on how to create disabled bathrooms so that they are accessible to wheelchair users and people with limited mobility, the Handicare advisors will offer walk in bath and shower advice as well as recommend any other bathroom accessories, such as grab rails, that they think will help to make it more accessible.
Frequently asked questions about walk in baths and showers
How much is a walk in shower?
When it comes to a bespoke walk in shower installation, the price will vary depending on the scale of the installation process.
How much is a walk in bath?
When it comes to bespoke walk in baths, the price will vary depending on the scale of the installation process and the type of model you choose. Some walk in baths for the elderly are slightly cheaper than other models, but no matter which type of bath you choose you will be asked to pay a deposit of 50% before the manufacturing can take place. The deposit can be paid in two instalments, the first of which is payable at the point of order and is normally around £1000. The remainder of this is due after a technical survey has been carried out.
What’s the difference between a wet room and a walk in shower?
Walk in showers are generally in a cubicle and are independent from the rest of the bathroom. Some models feature toughened safety features, such as glass around the outside of the shower and raised shower trays. Wet rooms are a popular choice for many modern bathrooms, but they normally do not include shower trays; the water instead flows directly into a drain in the floor.
Some models come with wet room screens, but the space will need to be waterproofed and have a tiled floor and walls. Wet rooms serve as great disability showers, allowing wheelchair users enough space to move around as they wash.
How much space for a walk in shower?
This depends on the need of the user and the specialist mobility bathroom surveyor can advise you on what they would recommend for your bathroom.
How do you fill a walk-in bath?
Unlike a traditional bath, disability baths are deeper and before filling the bath, users with mobility issues just need to get into the tub, make sure the door is shut and fill it with water. Before getting out of the bath you will need to let the water drain away before opening the door.
Where to put a walk in bath?
Most mobility baths have either left-hand or right-hand orientation to allow you to install your easy-access bath exactly the way you want it. For more information, read our Walk-in Baths and Showers FAQs.
