Barrier-Free Shower


Barrier-Free Showers Provide an Accessible and Elegant Shower Option

If you have limited mobility or use a wheelchair, using a bathtub or shower can be a challenge. High thresholds to step over, tight space, and slippery surfaces are just a few of the safety risks. Fortunately, a barrier-free shower can make your bathing experience safer and more comfortable.

What is a Barrier-Free Shower?

A barrier-free shower, also known as a curbless or zero-entry shower, is a type of shower that does not have a raised threshold or step at its entrance. It offers a seamless transition from the bathroom floor to the shower area, allowing wheelchair users or persons with limited mobility to safely walk or roll into a shower without navigating a curb.

How Water is Contained

The key to water containment in a low-threshold shower lies in the slope of the shower floor. Whereas traditional showers channel water from four angles into a centrally located drain, the barrier-free shower channels water along one sloped plane into a strategically placed drain.

Barrier-Free Shower Options

The barrier-free shower is also a popular choice for individuals of all abilities, as the shower design offers a beautiful, minimalist look to complement any bathroom. Barrier-free showers are customizable—choose your color, your dimensions, threshold height, accessories, and more.
