Adding a seat to your shower is an addition most people can appreciate, whether it is necessary for safety or simply for convenience. L-shaped seats in particular are preferred by some for corner installations and are often helpful for those who need assistance in showering. These seats are particularly convenient as they fold up out of the way when not in use. We offer L-shaped seats with the corner to the right or the left, as well as a variety of widths, so you can find just the right seat for your shower.

Whether elderly, permanently disabled or temporarily handicapped, these shower seats are one of the best investments you can make toward bathroom safety. If you or a loved one have difficulty standing long enough to shower or experience dizzy spells, a shower seat is one way to help prevent falls. Since these seats are wall mounted, you can place them at the ideal height, and since they fold up, they're completely out of the way when unneeded.

Depending on the arrangement of your bathroom, having a wall mounted shower seat with built-in legs may not be a good option. We have heard this is particularly true with tub/shower combinations. When installing a folding shower seat in conjunction with a tub, these end or rear hung shower seats may make more sense for you as the seat can fold down to use the ledges of the tub as part of the support structure. We also offer a portable seat that uses your tub's exposed ledge for support. One side grips the edge of the tub while the other side uses stainless steel legs for support, creating a sturdy yet portable tub seat. These seats are best for straight ledged tubs (not curved), especially if you find that your tub height is perfect for sitting on already!

With any brand or model of shower seat:
Always make sure that mounting bolts, etc are tight and secure.
If it is wobbling at all do not use it until it is fixed.
Be sure to mount the seat in something substantial
and not just sheet rock without backing.

Due to the differences in installation surfaces (tile, wood, sheet rock, etc),
mounting hardware (bolts/screws/anchors) is not included.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "What is the difference between Phenolic (Teak or White) & Naugahyde?"
A. Phenolic is a hard, dense, resin material that is light weight, resistant to flexing, and incredibly strong. Naugahyde is a synthetic, leather-like material. Seats made from Phenolic will be hard, while the Naugahyde seats will be padded.

Q. "Is the Phenolic Teak made from real Teak?"
A. The Phenolic Teak seats we offer are made from a hard, dense, resin material that is light weight, resistant to flexing, and incredibly strong. A finish is added to make them resemble the color of some varieties of teak, but Phenolic Teak seats are not made from real wood. Unlike wooden seats, phenolic teak seats do not require oiling, will not splinter, and does not support the growth of bacteria; phenolic teak seats are virtually maintenance-free!

Q. "What is the maximum weight capacity for these seats?"
A. When properly installed, all Seachrome shower seats have been designed and manufactured to support loads exceeding the downward pull requirements for Federal specifications FHA, VA, HUD, hospital codes, and private construction. Bench stye wall mounted shower seats are rated for 250 lbs. maximum. Bench style wall mounted shower seats with swing down legs are rated for 900 lbs. maximum. End/Rear hung tub seats are rated for 250 lbs. maximum. The actual "in use" load bearing capacity of any shower seat, however, will be limited by the strength of its mounting surface and installation hardware. Seachrome recommends that shower seats be installed using 2" minimum thickness "in wall" solid wood backing material with #10 x 2" stainless steel, phillips-head, sheet metal screws, or using a wall embedded, minimum 12 ga. (2.8mm) steel anchor plate with #10 x 24 stainless steel machine screws. Please contact the factory for further mounting recommendations. Under no circumstances should any shower seat be mounted to drywall, sheetrock, plaster, fiberglass, acrylic or other similar "hollow" wall surfaces without appropriate wood or steel backing material.
