Its simple to select the ideal tub to fit in the present decor of your property. If youre looking for a Premier bath tub in which youll be able to sit while bathing in comfort the Warwick is a wonderful option. On the flip side if you desire a Premier bath tub with a very low profile for a little bathroom theres no greater choice than the Easy Bathe. At this point you have your bathtub. A bathtub isnt merely a bathtub anymore. There are apparently several kinds of accessible bathtubs out there in the industry. When it is little square bathtubs you might want to spot it within a corner. There are a number of different varieties of bathtub doors.
If the door on your walk in bathtub opens into the tub itself then you will have to maneuver around the door once inside the tub in order to get the door closed behind you. If you have difficulty moving around in tight spaces having to navigate around a door inside your bathtub could be enough of a challenge than an outward swinging door becomes an attractive choice. This can be especially true if you have an injury or disability that makes it difficult to move your hips or knees or if you intend to transfer from a walker or wheelchair into your walk in tub. Its no accident that most "wheelchair transfer" tubs designed to accommodate bathers with physical disabilities come equipped with outward-swinging doors.

Most manufacturers opt for inward-swinging doors because its easier to hold the pressure from the water inside the tub with this design. An inward-swinging door rests inside a beveled lip on the doorframe that allows the tubs shell to bear the weight of the water inside the tub. When the tub is full the weight of the water inside presses the door into its frame in the shell so no additional mechanisms are needed to bear the weight of the 35-60 gallons of water inside the tub-but the door cannot be opened again until all the water drains out. Outward-swinging doors swing towards you when you open them into space in your bathroom instead of into the walk in bathtub itself.
