Shower Bay is a shower and does not fill up like a bath.
It is recommended to measure out and sketch Shower Bay’s dimensions on butcher paper to see if the unit will be able to fit in a desired location of the home. (See dimension diagrams below.)
Shower Bay as a unit weighs 118 lbs, but no individual piece weighs more than 31 lbs. It was also engineered with multiple grip areas that make handling parts easy.
Shower Bay may be used in a bathroom, but it was designed to also work in any room of the house. We understand that most bathrooms are not large enough for adequate wheelchair mobility, not to mention an additional shower. In most cases Shower Bay is set up in the corner of a bedroom, living room, or spare area of the home.
Shower Bay’s unique quick-connect system easily snaps onto most standard home faucets. The water travels from the faucet through an in-hose to the Shower Bay unit.
Shower Bay’s base is slightly angled like a normal shower. The water travels to a drain where the water is then pumped through the out-hose to a nearby sink or shower drain.
Shower Bay’s quick-connect system attaches to most standard home faucets. If you are unsure if it will work with yours, please contact Forward Day about test options.
Shower Bay was designed with a caregiver in mind. The walls are tall enough to contain the water and ensure privacy, but also low enough so that a caregiver can assist in the bathing process if needed.
Shower Bay can be used as a walk-in Shower for use with a shower chair. Without the ramp, the Shower Bay has a low threshold entry of 2.5-inches.
Shower Bay can be cleaned with most standard shower cleaning agents.
Shower Bay comes with standard 35 foot in- and out-hoses. Custom longer hoses can be ordered at an additional cost.
Shower Bay was designed to accommodate most standard-size shower wheelchairs. It has interior dimensions of 38.5” L x 36” W. Keep in mind, when entering the shower with a wheelchair, the door clearance allows for a 25″ width.
