Active Living Spa Slide-in Bath

AQUASSURE ADL SPA SLIDE-IN BATHTUB

ENJOY A REAL BATH WITH SAFETY AND INDEPENDENCE.

STRETCH OUT… RELAX…ENJOY…BATHING AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE.

NOT A STEP IN DOOR – YOU SIT IN THE DOORWAY AND SLIDE IN BACKWARDS!

Aquassure’s universal design bathtubs are unlike a walk-in bath; you can stretch out your legs and relax in a full-size, deep-soaker tub, immersing your back and shoulders in warm soothing water.

They are accessible from wheelchairs, walkers and lifts. They are the same five-foot length as a standard bathtub for trouble-free installation.

Safe, accessible full-size baths designed for everyone. Elevated, so you are always supported and don’t have to climb up and down. It’s like getting in and out of bed.

Aquassure Baths were developed with collaboration of two universities and several health organizations. We are proud of our unique bathing systems.

WHAT MAKES AN AQUASSURE BATHTUB UNIQUE?

The entire bathtub is raised to chair height, on a cabinet base, for easy entry and exit with a sliding door that doesn’t require any clearance.

Our patented sliding door won’t get in the way of your legs and feet, and you will not need extra clearance in front of the bath.

Bathe in comfort and safety with all controls in easy reach. A hand shower is available so you can easily wash your hair.

Sliding Door

Only Aquassure bathtubs come with our patented zero-clearance sliding door! The easy-glide sliding door is out of the way of legs, walkers, wheelchairs and lifts. The door latches automatically when you close it, and easily releases when you lift up the handle. Our unique seal design uses water pressure to increase seal integrity, preventing leaks and accidental openings. Plus, our door features a secondary backup drain in the door track – no spills on the floor and water can be run with the door open for cleaning and pre-heating!

Our door was tested over 20,000 cycles of opening and closing, then filled with water and it did not leak, exceeding international certification standards!

TUB FILL AND DRAIN

  • 2-4 minute fill time with 18 gallon per minute fill rate
  • 2? drain for enhanced one minute drain time

ACCESSIBILITY:

  •  Independent access from wheelchairs. Wheelchair users with upper body strength can do a seat-to-seat transfer or use a transfer board
  • Our tubs reduce bending and strain for caregivers. Bath systems can be installed in an enclosure or with open sides for increased caregiver access. Caregivers can easily reach the bather to help with hair washing or to access sensitive body parts.
  • For individuals requiring more assistance, the cabinet base provides clearance for a wheeled lift.
  • Some bathers have difficulty remaining in a seated position in the bathtub due to core weakness or paralysis. Aquassure has an optional 4-point shoulder support, as well as, a seat belt harness that the bather can se to secure themselves in place once in position for bathing.

ABOUT THE DOOR AND SEAL:

  • Patented sliding door
  • Sliding door is well-suited for small bathrooms without sacrificing interior bathing width.
  • Sliding door doesn’t get in the way of legs, walkers or wheelchairs
  • Opens and closes by sliding securely on its track
  • Door latches automatically when closed – lift up the handle to release
  • No bulky levers, complicated locking mechanisms or drop pins to remember
  • Easy-glide door is simple and easy to open when the tub is empty – very little effort needed
  • Unique seal design uses water pressure to increase seal integrity, preventing leaks and accidental opening.
  • Door track has a secondary drain as a backup  – no spills on the floor and plumbing code compliance
  • Our door was tested with 20,000 cycles of opening and closing, then filled with water and did not leak!
  • Lifetime warranty on the door seal.

CABINET BASE:

2014 cabinet

  • Every bathtub sits on top of a cabinet base
  • The cabinet raises the tub doorway to a 20-inch seat height, making entry easier from a wheelchair or walker
  • the pre-drilled frame is made of water-resistant laminated 5/8? wood, not particle board, so it will not swell or warp from moisture
  • The cabinet provides handy storage space for soaps, towels and other bathroom articles
  • Cabinet doors are spaced so that a wheeled lift may be used to assist the bather in and out of the bathtub, if needed
  • High-quality European hinges and durable door slides are included
  • Hardwood veeneer and bamboo upgrades are available in a wide range of finishes to custom match your existing decor and cabinetry

ENTRY AND EXIT:

Simply sit down n the doorway, as in a chair. Slide back as if you were getting into bed. Use the handy grab bars to help slide backwards. Your legs can slide in without any strain or bending. A little soapy water helps to slide without friction. Your legs aren’t needed to push yourself in. Slide the door shut – it seals by itself. You are now ready to fill the tub and enjoy.

If you can get in and out of bed, Aquassure tubs can work for you, even if you are in a wheelchair.

Our universal-design baths are made for the full range of mobility challenges – from those with knee issues, to those requiring assistance with a lift.

You can’t fall in an Aquassure bathtub because you are always fully supported.

Entering an ADL is as easy as sitting or transferring, sliding back, and shutting the door! Stretch out and relax.

Aquassure’s ADL Spa Slide-in Bath is a revolutionary way to bathe; allowing the bather to stretch out and enjoy a full body soak. Without thresholds to step over and no swinging doors in the way, the easy entry and exit reduces your risk of falls and allows for a safer, more accessible bathing experience.

  • Once unpacked, the tub can be easily carried through narrow hallways and doorways.
  • Many competitor tubs are too wide to fit through standard doorways, so installation is difficult. Aquassure tubs fit through a 25″ doorway.
  • The cabinet base provides clearance for connection of hot and cold water lines and the drain. The tub can easily hook-up to the drain and water intake lines anywhere in the cabinet base area.
  • The bathtub can be installed in a 3-wall surround or with a deck around it.
