What is a compact bath?
Compact baths is like a regular walk-in bath, but much smaller and deeper. This makes them ideal for bathrooms with limited space, and for elderly people or those with limited mobility, as compact baths are easier to get in and out of than regular tubs.
There are a number of features that make small-sized baths more safer and more accessible, including:
How does a compact bath work?
Compact baths work in the same way as traditional bathtubs, but they’re smaller and usually have additional features to make them more accessible and comfortable for elderly people and those with limited mobility. All you do is open the low-threshold door, lower yourself onto the seat, then enjoy a relaxing and refreshing bath.
Compact bathtubs, such as our Haven, Cove and Assure-Premier models, also have built-in seating and a watertight door, which can be helpful for people who have difficulty bending or climbing. Doors can also help to keep the water in the bathtub and prevent spills.
What is the difference between a full length and compact walk-in bath?
The main difference between a full length baths and a compact bathtub is the length. A full length bath is typically 1700mm long, while a compact bath is typically 1200mm long. This difference in length can make a big difference for people with mobility issues, as it can be difficult to get in and out of a long bath.
In addition to the length, there are a few other factors to consider when choosing a bath for a mobility bathroom. The height of the bath is also important, as people with mobility issues may need a compact tub with an ultra low access point.
Finally, it’s important to consider the features of the bath. Some baths have features that can make them easier to use for people with mobility issues, such as grab bars, non-slip surfaces, and seats.
What are the benefits of a compact bath?
Compact baths are a great option for elderly people and people with limited mobility because they offer a number of benefits, including:
