 These models are recognized in the industry as some of the most functional tubs and best reviewed by caregivers because of the non intrusive easy to use door latch and the industry leading low entry step with ADA compliant faucets as well. Its also easier to transfer from a wheelchair into this type of tub as there is no hard metal frame around the doorway, the seat is more exposed for stability when sitting down to transfer your legs in, and the threshold height is the lowest of all tubs in the industry with large outswing doors.  We have not been able to find a better quality and more functional product, but don't just take our word for it, stop by our showroom and take a peek for yourself.

Looking at the picture on the left, note that there are 2 locking latch pins to hold the door locked into place. This creates an equal pressure door seal and keeps the door from warping over time. The door latch mechanism is also very well engineered utilizing gears, gears shafts and bearings. The door latch movement is very smooth and probably the easiest to use of all tubs with these types of outswing doors. They are also designed to last for many years. We defy anyone to show us a better door system.

Sturdiest doors in the industry. Have a close look at the picture to the left of this paragraph as it shows how the door is bolted on through the tubs shell and through a half inch thick metal plate. Our competitors doors are simply screwed into their tubs shell...Our door will never come loose over time. Over the past 10 years we have sold a dozen brands of tubs and this is by far the best door system we have come across.                                        The support frame is also very heavy duty. On the door side it has a 2 inch square tubing  ( as opposed to 1 inch like most competitors )  with extra reinforcement bars which are also fiberglassed to the tub shell making the whole unit a very sound structure.  


2 piece faucet with shower head

We only use lever type faucets as knobs are difficult to use for those with dexterity issues. These are high quality faucets from Huntington Brass which are rated for 18 gallons per minute. Fill time will depend on the water pressure in your home. Lifetime warranty included. 

Dual drain system

The fastest gravity drain system in the industry. Drain time depends on the plumbing in your home. Drains as fast as 60 seconds in optimal conditions. 


Foot rest cleaning shelf

( exclusively ours )

The first in the industry to offer a foot cleaning shelf. How else would you clean your feet in a walk in tub ? Also great for those that want to shave their legs. 

Rainfall shower kit

Our Rainfall shower kit is secured to the wall, not the tub, this way it can be installed where you wish. We normally install in the center of the tub as it swivels so you can have it over the standing area of the bathtub  if you like to stand and shower or you can swing it over the seat area as well. It also includes a hand head shower head that is adjustable in height. 


Elevated push button controls

At Walk in Tub Ottawa, we only use elevated push button controls as folks typically struggle with flush buttons or touch pads. And for those with severe dexterity issues, they can always tap the button to activate the accessories. Anyone can use these. We've gone out of our way to make sure everything is easy to use, making our tubs the most functional tubs in the industry.

Most exposed seat when door is open

Our seat is the most exposed when you open the door hence you'll be stable when you sit down to transfer your legs in and out of the tub as opposed to having only the corner of the seat to sit on. Combined with our ultra low threshold, this makes it the easiest tub to get in and out of in the world. Also best for those with walkers as they can back up to the seat and sit down easily. And great for those needing to transfer from a wheelchair.

   See how easy it is to sit down and swing your legs in. This is due to the much exposed seat and extra low threshold. The door latch is the easiest to use of all tubs with outswing doors and non intrusive for assisted bathing. Stop by our showroom and try it out for yourself. NOTE : we actually used a person advanced in years and he was able to easily latch the door
