Handicap Accessible Showers are easier to get in and out of than conventional showers or bathtubs.

By Installing a handicap shower stall with the shower floor level with the bathroom floor it allows seniors, disabled persons, and people of all ages to enjoy a safe and comfortable bathroom without sacrificing style.

A “curbless” wheelchair accessible shower (or walk in shower, without a step) helps people with limited mobility to enjoy walking into the shower without barriers or for a wheelchair to be rolled directly into the shower over a collapsible water dam or water stopper. Handicap bars are recommended for extra safety measures and a bench can be built for sitting down.

Caregivers can easily assist in transfers when you replace your bathtub with a roomy roll in shower stall.

Here at Surfaces USA we can help you convert a tub area or standard shower into a handicap shower.

Here is an example of a tub shower before and after converting into a handicap shower:
