More than a third of injuries in the home happen when bathing or showering.1
Imagine getting in and out of the shower with ease—without having to worry about obstacles that could lead to a fall. It’s possible with a barrier-free shower by Bath Planet By Clear Choice of Southwest Florida.
What Is a Barrier-Free Shower?
Barrier-free showers, also called handicap walk-in showers, have at least one open side that is level to the floor. This eliminates the obstacle of stepping over a shower lip or a tub wall, allowing for completely unimpeded wheelchair access.
It’s the ideal solution for people with limited mobility and those who want to age in place.
Maintaining bathing independence is a top priority for seniors and people with disabilities. Our wheelchair accessible showers make it possible.
Cost is one of the most common reasons people delay installing a curbless shower. But installing a handicap shower doesn’t have to be an expensive, messy process. Bath Planet By Clear Choice can install a stylish and functional barrier-free shower in as little as a day.
How We Install Your Barrier-Free Shower
Our professional team uses an innovative, efficient process to ensure your functional new shower is installed quickly—but we never compromise on quality.
We start by taking measurements of your bathroom. Next, we create a custom shower base that matches the specific dimensions of the space. We finish by installing stylish shower wall materials, which are available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. We also offer a variety of accessories, including built-in seating, grab bars, shelving, and more.
Our products are durable, long-lasting, and low maintenance. They are made of a tough acrylic material that won’t chip, crack, stain, or dent. The material also resists the buildup of mold, mildew, and grime, which means less cleaning.
Benefits of Barrier-Free Shower Enclosures
Safer – For many people, the very idea of using the bathroom causes stress and anxiety. This response is understandable, considering that accidents in the bathroom are extremely common. A barrier-free handicap shower eliminates obstacles that can lead to an accident. This can dramatically reduce the stress and anxiety associated with bathing, especially for those with limited mobility.
More functional – Curbless showers aren’t just helpful for those with disabilities and mobility issues. Everyone in the family, from kids to grandparents, and even pets, can benefit from the ease of entry a handicap shower provides.
Greater independence – Every year thousands of people reluctantly move into assisted-living facilities or nursing facilities simply because their homes don’t accommodate their needs. Barrier-free showers allow those with mobility issues to maintain their independence and stay in their homes longer or even indefinitely.
Roomier – One underappreciated benefit of handicap showers is that they make your bathroom look and feel more spacious. Without the obstacle of tub walls or a shower door, the room appears larger. Plus, the extra floor space in and around a barrier-free shower can be used for a shower seat or even extra storage.
Easy to clean – The walls and floor of a barrier-free shower stall are easier to access and clean. There are fewer corners and seams where dirt, grime, and mildew can build up. Individuals with mobility issues can even sit while cleaning a curbless shower.
