ADA Wheelchair Showers enable you to enjoy barrier-free bathing.
A wheelchair accessible ADA shower stall allows disabled individuals and people of all abilities to enjoy a safe and comfortable bathing experience.
In general, handicapped accessible ADA Showers are used for commercial projects, and Accessible Showers for residential projects. There are exceptions to this for as many homeowners enjoy the space efficiency of the 36″x36″ transfer showers or will use a 1-piece ADA roll in shower unit for new construction
ADA Showers are handicapped Accessible for Wheelchairs and Comfortable for People of All Abilities.
All showers accessible for the disabled and have a slip resistant textured floor adding to user safety.
The American Disabilities Act (ADA), provides civil rights protections to people with disabilities, ensuring equal access to all public goods and services. This resulted in ADA standards and guidelines for accessibility to places of public accommodation and commercial facilities by individuals with disabilities. We hope this page will assist you to install wheelchair accessible showers in ADA compliant bathrooms.
ADA wheelchair showers come in a variety of sizes and styles. One-piece showers for new construction and multi-piece wheelchair accessible showers for remodelling are available.
ADA Roll in Showers are designed to be accessible in a wheelchair. ADA guidelines specify a minimum inside shower dimension of 60″ x 30″ (1525 mm x 760 mm).
It is much easier for caregivers to assist in transfers in a roomy ADA roll in shower stall. The handicapped accessible showers equipped with a shower seat, grab bars and a hand held showerhead help the user to bath independently.
ADA Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities (ADAAG) Section 4.21 for Shower Stalls can be found at:
Section 4.21 also includes size and installation specifications for grab bars, shower seats as well as handheld shower head and pressure mixing valve.
Many 1-piece and multi-piece roll in wheelchair shower models and accessories are available for handicapped or disabled access. Not all shower sizes and styles are shown, call us for more options.
ADA Transfer Wheelchair Showers offer an easy transfer from a wheelchair to a fold down shower seat. Transfer Showers are so named because the wheelchair is parked outside the shower and the user “transfers” into the shower. ADAAG guidelines specify an inside dimension of 36″ x 36″ (915 mm x 915 mm) for a transfer shower.
To comply with ADA and many building codes ADA Transfer Showers must also be accessorized to meet ADAAG Guidelines. This includes proper installation of a folding shower seat, inside corner grab bar, handheld showerhead and pressure mixing valve.
For quick delivery we offer several models fully accessorized to meet ADAAG Guidelines. We offer many ADA accessories to provide for all your accessible building product needs at the job site.
