The best side of walk-in tubs is safety: they are usually accompanied by safety doors, non-slip floors; or mount bars. This is exactly why they are recommended to people with special needs. Another advantage is that they come in all heights, shapes, or designs: you could easily ‘blend’ them inside your alcove/tile setting; or use them as drop-in tubs.
Soaking tubs belong to the category of most popular tubes; relatively modest, with nothing to offer but depth and suitability. But isn’t depth what many of us expect from their tubs? Aren’t we supposed to soak inside after a stressful day? Besides, soaking tubs can stand alone; or be installed like alcove or drop-in tubs. It all depends on the space you have available.
People with limited abilities sometimes encounter difficulties during everyday situations, but now this problem can be easily resolved. Uncomfortable situations can be avoided if you choose walk-in tub. It looks and works practically in the same way as an ordinary one, but has a door on the side that seals behind a person. This type of tub can also be facilitated with a seat to provide more comfort for the user. This option is a perfect one for those who earlier needed some assistance while bathing, though now can easily go along without any help.
Due to the peculiarities of installation and construction, you can implement deep soak tub into all types of interior and decorate space around this tub in many various ways with small tiles shining or matte-finished, you can also add one or two steps near the tub.
Airy tubs are another peak in the progress of technology, which enable you to have a bubbly bath experience like the one spa can offer. They are quite similar to whirlpool tubs, with the main difference that there is a jet that heats air instead of water. A deeper comparison would even show that airy tubs are more sanitary-convenient, because the only thing that can happen to their jets is clogging. If you prefer a cheaper option, we recommend jets that dry the tub after it has been used; rather than those that can heat air inside.
Tubs can also be made of fiberglass (reinforced plastic), ideally covered with a material known as ‘gelcoat’. Due to its flexibility, this material can be shaped easily, which is exactly why it is the favorite choice for making whirlpool and airy tubs. The gelcoat, on the other hand, enriches its appearance; and it creates a smooth, shiny surface that is easy to clean and maintain. As flexible as it is, this material is prone to scratches and cracks.
