Instead of having the door rest on the inside of the bathtub shell outward-swinging doors stay closed because of heavy-duty bolts that lock the edge of the door frame into the rest of the shell. Outward swinging doors also commonly have bars or levers on the outside of the door to ensure that there is enough support to keep the door closed. These bolts have to be strong and the parts of the shell that they lock into have to be heavily reinforced in order to support the weight of the water and bather. Because outward swinging doors require more parts to keep them shut they are more expensive to build and are less popular in walk in bathtubs sold for residential use.
