What Is A Low Threshold Shower?
Does your bathroom currently have a shower that requires you to step up an inch or several inches to enter or exit the shower? If so, your shower has a high threshold and can pose a fall risk for older individuals in the home. A low threshold shower in Bartonville, TX can significantly reduce the risk of falling by providing a seamless entrance to and exit from the shower. Low threshold showers do not require you to step up when entering or exiting, which helps you to maintain your balance. The low threshold design can be flush with your floor or proceed at a gentle slope. If you are interested in replacing your shower base with a safer option, give us a call today at (972) 581-9865, and one of our experts can help you determine which option will be ideal for you!
If you or a loved one have difficulties with mobility, dealing with a high threshold shower can be a nightmare.
Thousands of people go to the emergency room each year for bathroom-related injuries such as falling, and at Lone Star Walk In Tubs, we work hard to lower that number. We are dedicated to providing elderly and disabled individuals with safer bathing options, and for those who prefer showers, low threshold showers are one of the first options we recommend. By eliminating an unnecessary ledge, we solve two problems in one motion. Shower ledges are often an easy breeding ground for mildew and bacteria, so by removing the ledge, cleaning is much simpler. Additionally, the ledge is no longer a threat to your balance or a potential tripping area.
Beyond easy-entry, our accessible shower options are also equipped with built-in seats, as well as safety grab bars secured to the shower walls. The majority of our options are totally customizable to accommodate your needs, so if you need closer controls for hot and cold, or a handheld showerhead, we can help make that happen. If you’re interested in upgrading to a low threshold shower in Bartonville, TX, or the surrounding areas, give us a call today at (972) 581-9865! We offer completely free in-home consultations, and we can help determine which addition will serve you best. We can even assist you with walk-in tubs!
