Frequently asked questions
Mobility Showers FAQs
Our team can complete the installation of a mobility shower in as little as 3 days. All the work is carried out by ourselves - we do not rely on other contractors such as plumbers and electricians, who can slow down the process.
The duration of the installation might differ depending on factors such as the size and style of your bathroom, as well as any individual features which you may have chosen to be included. Due to high demand there is typically a waiting time of a few weeks from your initial enquiry. The earlier you enquire, the sooner we can start fitting your mobility shower!
Moblity showers ensure that those with restricted mobility can continue to use the bathroom independently. To some this is a priceless investment. In addition, if it allows a user extra years in their own home, this ends up being much more cost-effective than having to move to a care home.
As each mobility shower that we install is unique, we will provide you with a free, no obligation consultation and quote specific to your requirements. Being independent, we are able to offer very competitive quotes, as our costs do not need to cover subcontractors such as plumbers and electricians. Along with your quote we can provide a 3D virtual drawing of how your disabled shower will look, so you can see exactly what you are getting for your money.
Yes, mobility showers are perfect for wheelchair users. They provide completely unrestricted access to all areas of the bathroom including the shower area, allowing the user to enter and exit unassisted. We design mobility showers with waterproof floors and walls, making them easy to keep clean and maintain.
While there is no tray to collect the water in, they are designed so that all water is directed towards the draining point, which is known as gravity draining. This means that they won’t leak! Contact our team to learn more about our wheelchair accessible mobility showers.
Yes! We’ll work to your requirements which involves our team assessing the dimensions of your bathroom and advising on the best solution. We have fitted practical and stylish mobility showers into some extremely small spaces before and we always strive to meet the needs of the individual. We love a challenge, so with careful planning and design, we are sure we will come up with a creative and flawless solution to make the best use of your space.
There are a few key safety features which come as standard with all of our mobility shower installations. These are:
- Grab rails – different sizes and types are available, but they are essential for safety and peace of mind in the shower!
- Non-slip flooring – Traditional showers are slippy even for those with full mobility. If your movement is restricted a slippy shower floor is a major safety hazard.
- Thermostatic protection – the shower unit should be thermostatically controlled in order to protect the user from scalding.
- Lever taps – Traditional taps can be fiddly to use if you have restricted mobility. Lever taps are easy to navigate and can be quickly turned on/off as needed.
When installing mobility showers we take care to cause as little disruption as possible to your home. This means putting down dust sheets to protect your floor, cleaning up the mess and the old bathroom parts, as well as being considerate when moving around your home. There will inevitably be some noise and disruption when the work takes place, but we will do all we can to keep this to a minimum. We work quickly on site to get your mobility shower fitted in as little time as possible, whilst still mainting our high standards.
Different types of mobility showers are available to suit different needs. Some require completely level access, such as wheelchair users and those with very limited mobility. Others may prefer to have a shallow tray to step into to seperate the shower area from the rest of the bathroom.
Whichever type of mobility shower you choose, there are countless different styles and features for you to choose between to personalise it. This includes design aspects as well as practical additions such as lever taps, shower seats, and much more.
Yes. We understand that in order to be practical, mobility showers need to be easy to use and to maintain. That's why our mobility showers include waterproof, maintenance-free walls and ceilings that will be resistant to damp and mould.
All of our mobility showers are designed with low maintenance and practicality in mind, for your convenience.
There are many benefits to using a mobility showers specialist, such as ourselves, over a local plumber. At the start of the project, we'll take the time to understand your specific mobility needs. We then draw upon our breadth of experience and knowledge to design a suitable mobility showering solution.
We are independent mobility showers specialists, so we have access to a wide range of suitable materials and products. Again drawing on our indsutry experience, we'll advise on which products would be best suited to your needs.
Mobility showers have many advantages. They are designed with the elderly and disabled in mind, but they are of course suitable for the whole family to use too.
The main advantage is when entering and exiting the shower - Mobility showers have a level floor so there's nothing to step over or trip up on. Other advantages include: easy to clean walls and floors, non-slip flooring, safety rails, easy-to-use taps and much more. Not to mention a modern and stylish design!
