A walk-in bath is designed to restore independence to persons with limited mobility. A safe and self-reliant solution for those who need assistance with washing. AHM are experts in transforming bathrooms into unique access washing areas designed specifically for our client’s needs. Along with using high quality materials, and having more than twenty years’ experience, we strive to offer the most competitive prices.

A walk-in bath has a watertight door which opens inwards. Allowing people to enter the bath easily, close the door behind them and fill the tub without the worry of water leaking onto the floor. Most walk-in baths have some sort of supported seat complete with a backrest, and some models even have water jets & jacuzzi features.

Why Choose One For Your Home?

As we get older, some of us may start experiencing difficulties with mobility from either illness or injury. A walk-in bath brings a relaxing solution to washing if you would rather not have a sit down shower or wet room.

Many of our customers comment on their delight of a return to unassisted washing. Restoring independence is invaluable, enabling you to enjoy some relaxing time for yourself.

Styles & Types Of Walk-In Baths

There are three main types, all of which can be adapted to your exact specifications or needs. The three main types are:

  • Full length or sit up bath
  • Front or with side opening door
  • Inward or outward opening doors

Which model and style is best for your property depends on a number of variables. Firstly, the actual space available is something which often gets overlooked as these types of installations take up more space than free standing ones. It’s also worth noting that certain models may suit your needs more than others do.

We are one of the leading names in the mobility bathing industry. We serve the entirety of mainland UK, and are our installation engineers have reworked spaces of all sizes to deliver bathrooms that improve lifestyles.

Because of the design of the doors and closures, closing and sealing the door may be accomplished with minimal effort or strength, making it suitable for individuals who suffer from arthritis, for example. Due to the fact that the bath itself is fully waterproof, there is no risk of any spills or leaks into your bathroom floor.

An average-sized bath (1700mm × 700mm) carrying approximately 25 gallons of water takes approximately five to eight minutes to drain completely. You’ll have to wait until your bath has completely drained before you may exit, or the contents will flood onto the floor.
