Acrylic Safety Tubs®: FAQs
Answers to Commonly Asked Questions
How Do Safety Tubs® Compare to the Competition?
Safety Tubs® is the inventor of acrylic walk-in bathtubs and manufactures both acrylic and gelcoat models. In fact, Safety Tubs® is the only walk-in tub manufacturer to offer acrylic tubs with molded chair height seats. Acrylic is the material of choice for leading manufacturers and trade professionals around the world. Germ and stain resistant surfaces, high-gloss finish and long-lasting durability are just a few of the many benefits acrylic tubs offer. Safety Tubs® gelcoat models are lightweight, beautiful, durable and cost-effective, and both acrylic and gelcoat models come reinforced with welded steel frames that boast 5 individual leveling feet for hassle free installation.
In addition, Safety Tubs® offers many features and options unique only to Safety Tubs®, including the patented T5™ Door System, the patent pending Minute Drain™ Water Removal System, Aromatherapy and Chromatherapy Systems, and Deluxe Back and The Legs Only Massage Systems.
How Does the T5™ Door System Work?
Safety Tubs® patented T5™ Door System forms a hydrostatic seal when compressed by latching the door. Additionally, the weight of water inside the tub further compresses the door seal making it completely leak proof. Safety Tubs® guarantees the door seal for life.
Can Users Also Take Showers?
YES! Safety Tubs® optional faucet with hand-held shower allows you to convert your bathtub into an easy-to-use and attractive shower. Simply turn the deck-mounted diverter to switch from faucet to shower. Use it standing up or sitting down with the optional hand glide bar which can be used for mounting the hand-held shower for peace of mind and security while bathing.
