Handicapped Shower Stalls

Safety is the number one priority of a handicapped shower stall.  First, you should consider that it is safer than a tub because it is easy to get in and out of.  A good handicapped shower stall can be walked into without needed to go over bumps of any kind.

Handicapped Shower Stalls

Grab Bars

Heavy duty and well placed grab bars are a necessity.  They should be large enough that the hand can easily grasp and grip.  Look for grab bars that will be easy to hold onto when wet.  They should also be placed low enough that they can be reached easily.

Shower Chair

Stability is important so that a shower chair should be attached to the side of the shower wall.  Some people may just have their own shower chair they keep in the shower.  This chair makes it safer because you don’t have to worry about slipping and falling. 

Flexible Shower Head

A flexible or handheld shower head should be close enough that you can reach it sitting down.  You can bring the water closer to you and have more control.  This is necessary when showering in the sitting position.

Grip Mats or Grip tape

Slips and falls should utmost be avoided. Grip tape and grip mats will make the shower  more safe. In addition, keeping the floor clean from soap buildup will help reduce slippage.

Size

Shower stalls would ideally be slightly larger to allow for shower chairs and ease of movement.
