Bentley Tubs

Falling in a bathtub can lead to significant injuries and even fatalities. According to the American Family Physician, significant falls are the leading cause of emergency room visits and the primary cause of accidents involving the elderly. This is why Bentley Baths is committed to promoting safety in baths and supports safety expos, articles, and seminars to help prevent falls.

In-home consultations for bariatric walk-in tubs

Bariatric walk-in tubs are often a great purchase if you have trouble accessing your bathtub or have limited space. They also help reduce the risk of bathroom falls and offer soothing warm water that soothes joint pain. While you may be working to lose weight, a bariatric walk-in tub can help you stay comfortable long after the weight has been lost.

There are several different brands and models to choose from. Some companies offer free in-home consultations to help you make the right choice. A specialist will come to your home to take measurements and give you an accurate quote. They will also explain the various benefits of different models and discuss which one will work best for your situation.

The tub should also have safety features, such as grab bars, anti-slip floors, and an ADA-compliant seat. You should also look for an outward-swinging door. A bariatric tub is similar to a wheelchair-accessible tub, but it is heavier duty. They can accommodate people who weigh up to 300 pounds. They also come with jets that provide champagne-like bubbles.

Costs of clawfoot tubs

A traditional clawfoot bathtub can be expensive. Depending on the weight, they can cost anywhere from $700 to $2,800. Several different brands offer these tubs and the prices can vary dramatically. Popular manufacturers include Pelham & White and Woodbridge. These tubs are also more difficult to move, which can result in a higher cost.

One common question relating to the cost of clawfoot bathtubs is how much the installation will cost. A plumbing contractor will charge between $300 and $2,000 for the installation. However, this will depend on the style of the tub and the cost of the materials. For instance, acrylic and fiberglass bathtubs will be more affordable to install, but bronze tubs will cost the most.

Clawfoot bathtubs can be made of cast iron or acrylic. They are typically white porcelain on the interior, but can be painted any color a homeowner prefers. Acrylic tubs may be painted any color, but this will require an upcharge of about $100. While acrylic tubs are lightweight and easy to clean, they do not retain heat as well as cast iron tubs.

Sizes of bariatric walk-in tubs

Bariatric walk-in tubs are special bathtubs designed for people who are obese or have limited mobility. They are usually wide and have an extra-wide tub frame. They are ideal for people over 300 pounds. Some models can even be wheelchair accessible. They also provide a spa-like experience and are equipped with luxury features.

Typical features of bariatric walk-in tub models include an extra-wide door with an anti-slip floor, grab bars that make it easy to enter and exit the tub, and knob handles that allow for a comfortable stance. Many of these tubs also come with stationary grab bars to help users safely stand up when finished bathing. The tubs also offer non-porous, mold-resistant surfaces.

Bariatric walk-in tubs are designed for people who are over 300 pounds. They are ADA-compliant, so the tubs are easy to clean. Whether your tub is made of fiberglass or wood, you can rest assured that it will last for years.
