ADA shower ramp regulations are created for a population severely challenged by this simple act. Showering can be tricky for the elderly and disabled.
A vertical rise at the shower door threshold can be dangerous for those with unsteady feet, possibly causing falls or serious injuries.
A shower door transition edge greater than 1/2 inch in height can make wheelchair access difficult, if not impossible, and can even prevent life-saving mobility.
For these reasons ADA regulations require the removal of access barriers in the showering facilities of buildings and public accommodations. In any case, you will want your remodeled or retrofitted shower to be safe, accessible, and convenient for the elderly and disabled.
SafeShower transition ramps and floor edge reducers are designed for both commercial and residential shower facilities. The material is a durable, slip-resistant, non-absorbant polymer that is both affordable and easy to install.
The product can be customized for shower door size, transition height, side approaches, and sloped or mitered sides for safety. Installation generally does not require shower or floor alterations, although disability access codes may also require a maneuverable clearance area for wheelchairs.
The SafePath SafeShower™ Ramp Transitions offer easy access into showers, walk-in showers/tubs, and steam showers that require an edge treatment or transitional elements. Designed for both residential and commercial use, these shower ramps meet ADA and other disability access code requirements.
The Elegant ADA Shower ramp
SafePath™ Products offers SafeShower™ ramp transitions for showers that require edge treatment or transitional elements for showers, walk-in showers/tubs and steam showers. Whether it is a commercial or residential shower, wheelchair access is often required and accomplished by using a ramp, transition or reducer to satisfy ADA and disability access codes.
SafeShower™ transitions can be installed with silicone adhesive for a permanent application, with double-back tape or Velcro for less permanent applications.
Available in several colors, each transition is hand crafted for a perfect fit every time. Made from composite plastic, these SafeShower™ ramps are made of non-absorbing materials and are available up 1-1/2” in height. [Some custom rubber product applications may be substituted].
These SafeShower™ ramps come with a built-in side approach or can be ordered with the flares or mitered ends removed for wall to wall showers.
