Taking special care about people with disabilities the manufactures constantly design new handicap shower stalls. These units are equipped especially for those persons who can’t stand taking the shower and meet the other difficulties during the other water procedures.
All handicap shower equipment should match the special standards which foresee the certain width of the rooms and stalls, the floor anti-slippery surface, grab bars along the walls and the other stuff.
Contemporary handicap shower enclosures should be wide enough to let the wheelchair in and out. Each of these wheelchair shower cubicles is equipped with a seat or a bench. It makes possible to sit there while taking a shower. The seat unit has tosupport 250 pounds weight as a minimum requirement.
It is absolutely needed if a disabled uses the shower, but very often these modern constructions are bought to install in the houses where elderly live. With time our body loses flexibility, and standing even for five minutes becomes a challenge.
Keeping a balance may become a problem if a person is aged or have some problems with health, even temporary. Therefore all handicap shower bases have grab bars on the walls. An aged or a disabled can use them to feel confident while taking water procedures.
The floor of the shower stalls made for people with some physical problems is anti-slippery. Additionally it is recommended to buy a special rug which will double the anti-slippery effect.
