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. 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.
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.
