 These models are renowned in the industry for being the most functional walk-in tubs and earning top marks from caregivers. This is thanks to their non-intrusive, easy-to-use door latch and the leading low entry step with ADA-compliant faucets. Additionally, transferring from a wheelchair into this type of tub is easier due to the more exposed seat, providing better stability when sitting down to transfer your legs. Furthermore, the threshold height is the lowest of all tubs in the industry, complemented by large outswing doors. We have yet to come across a higher quality or more functional product. However, don't just take our word for it—visit our showroom and see for yourself.

Observing the image on the left, it's important to recognize the presence of 2 locking latch pins, ensuring the door remains securely locked in place. This design promotes an equal pressure door seal, effectively preventing door warping over time. The door latch mechanism is meticulously engineered, incorporating gears, gear shafts, and bearings for optimal performance. With remarkably smooth movement, it's likely the easiest to operate among tubs featuring similar outswing doors. Furthermore, these mechanisms are built to withstand the test of time, designed for longevity. We challenge anyone to present a superior door system.

walk in tubs support frame

The most robust door system in the industry is showcased in the image. Take a closer look to see how the door is securely bolted through the tub's shell and a half-inch thick metal plate. In contrast, competitors' doors are simply screwed into their tubs' shells. With this design, our door will never loosen over time. Over the past decade, we've sold a dozen brands of tubs, and this door system stands out as the best we've encountered.

Additionally, the support frame is exceptionally heavy-duty. On the door side, it features a 2-inch square tubing (compared to the standard 1-inch used by most competitors), along with extra reinforcement bars. These components are securely attached to the tub's shell with fiberglass, creating a structurally sound unit.

walk in tubs faucets

2 piece faucet with shower head

We exclusively employ lever-type faucets, recognizing the challenges knobs pose for individuals with dexterity issues. Our faucets are sourced from Huntington Brass, renowned for their high quality and rated for 18 gallons per minute. The fill time is contingent upon the water pressure in your home. Additionally, rest assured with our lifetime warranty included.

Dual drain system

Introducing the fastest gravity drain system in the industry. Drain time may vary depending on the plumbing in your home, but in optimal conditions, our system can drain as quickly as 60 seconds.

Foot rest cleaning shelf

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 securely mounted to the wall, offering flexibility in installation. It can be placed according to your preference. Typically, we install it in the center of the tub, allowing it to swivel. This way, you can position it over the standing area of the bathtub for a standing shower experience, or swing it over the seat area as desired. Additionally, it comes with an adjustable hand-held shower head, allowing for customizable height settings.

Elevated push button controls

At Walk-in Tub Ottawa, we exclusively utilize elevated push button controls, recognizing that many individuals encounter difficulties with flush buttons or touch pads. Additionally, for those with severe dexterity issues, activating accessories is effortless—they can simply tap the button. Our commitment to accessibility ensures that anyone can operate these controls with ease. We've taken extra measures to ensure everything is user-friendly, establishing our tubs as the most functional in the industry.

Most exposed seat when door is open = stability, safety, peace of mind

Our seat offers the highest level of exposure when the door is opened, providing stability as you sit down and transfer your legs in and out of the tub. This is unlike having only the corner of the seat to sit on. Coupled with our ultra-low threshold, this feature makes our tub the easiest to access in the world. It's especially beneficial for individuals with walkers, as they can easily back up to the seat and sit down. Additionally, it's ideal for those needing to transfer from a wheelchair.
