Walk In Tubs
Walk In Bathtubs
Thank you for visiting Bathe Safe Walk In Bathtubs, The premier Walk-In Tub Company for all your needs! There are many imitators, but only one walk in bath company who really cares about its customers. We have more than fifteen years of experience building, selling and installing walk in bathtubs for seniors. Not only do we make the finest walk in bathtubs on the market, we offer the walk-in bathtubs with the longest warranty and have an unparalleled selection of walk in bathtubs. No matter your situation, we have a walk in bathtub that will work for you for the rest of your life.
As you’re considering which walk in tub to get, be sure to keep that last phrase in mind, “for the rest of your life”. You want to consider not only your current ability level, but what you anticipate your mobility to be like years from now, that way when you make your selection, it will be the last modification you should have to make in your bathroom.
The inherent danger in using a standard 12″-20″ tall tub are twofold…first, if a user were to fall while inside the tub, it is very likely that they would fall over the wall of the tub and out, onto the floor. Second, when entering or exiting a standard tub (the most common time for a user to fall or for a care-giver to be injured, while preventing a fall), even missing that 12″-20″ step by a sixteenth of an inch can result in serious injury or worse.
By contrast, the dinner-chair-height seat and high side walls (between 36″ and 47″ tall) built in to our walk in tubs for elderly and mobility challenged users, makes it virtually impossible for the user to fall out and keeps your loved one safe and healthy.
Another significant consideration regarding walk in bathtubs for seniors, and others who are mobility challenged, is that the actual act of entering the tub is made considerably safer. With a low step-in and a stainless steel framework built into the walls of our walk-in bathtubs, the user can use the strength of their upper body to grasp the tall side-wall of the walk-in tub as well as the provided grab bar. With the combination of places for both hands to grasp, coupled with the low threshold of the walk in bath, it is no wonder that users of walk in bathtubs for elderly and mobility challenged users enjoy a safer & more enjoyable bathing experience.
ADA Access Ramps and Ramp Systems
Many people struggle everyday to get into and out of their home due to a large or small staircase. Outdoor steps are easily avoided with am ramp that can be installed in 1 day. The benefits of a ramp are endless, starting with their great look, and durability. Our ADA compliant Ramp Systems are designed for modular or permanent ramp situations. Each section can be used individually or as a component of a larger wheelchair ramp system. A low cost one-time investment, offer the most economical solution for wheelchair transportation. Because the ramp can be moved to different locations, the system usually does not require a building permit for commercial or residential properties. These ramps are also able to be rented if only required for a short term, and will usually be bought back with in the first three years if the customer no longer needs it.

Stairlifts and Other Lift Systems
A stairlift is a mechanical device for lifting people up and down. For sufficiently wide stairs, a rail is mounted to the treads of the stairs. A chair or lifting platform is attached to the rail. A person on the chair or platform is lifted as the chair moves along the rail. Stairlifts are known variously as stair lifts, stair-lifts, chair lifts, stair gliders and by other names. This type of chair lift should not be confused with the chairlift or ski-lift used by skiers.
These are the most common type of stairlifts used in private dwellings with straight stairs and
have a straight rail (track) which is fixed to the steps of the staircase. Straight stairlifts have a
shorter installation and manufacturing time because they require fewer customizations.
This generally means that they are also less expensive than other types, since the only
variable among different installations is the actual length of the track and options that you
would like to have on the stairlift, such as power chair or charging area on the track.
These are normally much more costly than those with straight rails because they have to be
manufactured to suit the individual staircase. These stair lifts usually have a longer manufacture
time range, and a longer installation time. This sometimes involves careful measurement, design
and manufacturing. We use state of the art cameras and imaging to make sure that the stair lift is
perfectly designed for your individual staircase.The installation process usually takes longer than
for a straight domestic stairlift. Some curved rail systems are created with a rail system that fits
together as a track system. It works by the installer carrying a number of different sections of rail.
These are then built at the customers premises following the curve of the stairs. This new system
removes the need for a custom rail to be made of the customer premises.
Incline Wheelchair Platform Stairlifts
These come under the general definition of stairlift and are usually of much heavier construction
than a domestic stairlift.Most platform stairlifts are used in public access buildings or outside private
homes.The platform is large enough to accommodate a wheelchair and its user, and may have folding
edge flaps which drop down and act as ramps to allow for variations in floor levels. These flaps also
prevent the wheelchair from going over the edge of the platform.The rails are, necessarily, of heavy
construction to support the load and the drive system is usually accommodated within a tubular
section rail or aluminium extrusion. Some models have steel cables inside the tube, others have chains;
yet others may use a rack and pinion system.Many wheelchair platform stairlifts are designed and built
to order. Others may comprise a standard platform and carriage, with the only special requirement
being the length of rails or tracks.Some stairlift chairs can also be moved and used as indoor wheelchairs.
Outdoor Stairlifts come with seats, perches, footplates or platforms and are sold worldwide. They are
similar to indoor stairlifts but with improved weatherproofing. Outdoor Stair Lifts are engineered with
a durable extruded aluminum track and marine-grade vinyl seating to handle rain, wind, snow, and
temperatures from 0 to 125 degrees. Outdoor stair lifts may include internal chassis, and large
weatherproof covers for even more protection.
Vertical Platform Lifts
Vertical Platform Lifts (or VPLs for short), are very useful for helping a wheelchair user travel
between levels. Vertical Platform Lifts are similar to elevators but use constant pressure switches.
Vertical Platform Lifts (VPL’s) can be used both indoors and out and in residential and commercial
settings. Short VPL’s, often called “Porch Lifts” are used to provide access from ground level to enter
homes. In a commercial setting, VPL’s are enclosed in a “hoistway” – either a factory supplied
enclosure or a constructed enclosure.
