Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "Who can benefit from these seats?"
A. The great thing about these seats is that just about everyone can benefit from having a shower to bathtub seat. However, there are those who specifically require assistance entering, leaving and/or while bathing such as the elderly, those with a physical handicap or disability. Anyone who suffers from diseases like Parkinson's or Arthritis or those who've had a stroke and are left with limited mobility could greatly benefit from the extra help in the shower or tub. Also persons who have suffered from a severe injury, recovering from surgery or who are in physical rehabilitation can find comfort in safe and easy bathing with one of these wonderful seats. Those who need this kind of assistance can spend less time trying to uncomfortably manage a bath or shower and more time relaxing and enjoying their bathing. In addition using a transfer bench or shower seat can help to reduce the chances of an injury while bathing since the user has a sturdy and reliable surface to rest on.

Q. "What is the difference between Phenolic (Teak or White) & Naugahyde? What is HDPE?"
A. Phenolic is a hard, dense, resin material that is light weight, and incredibly strong. This nonporous material does not splinter or require oiling and will not support the growth of bacteria. It is available in either a White or Teak (wood-grain) surface finish. The Naugahyde used on these seats is a soft, synthetic, leather-like material that covers 2" of foam which is mounted to 1/2" marine plywood. HDPE stands for high-density polyethylene, and is an extremely durable and strong thermoplastic.

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 style shower seats are rated for a maximum of 900 lbs. Bariatric Bench style seats with swing down legs are rated for a maximum of 1500 lbs. Compact Bench style shower seats are rated for a maximum of 250 lbs. Of course the actual "in use" load bearing capacity of any shower seat 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.

Q. "How do I tell which is right-hand side or left-hand side?"
A. For the "L" shaped transfer benches, the short side of the "L" will either be sticking out on your left side or your right side while you're sitting on the seat. So, if you were sitting on the bench and the short side of the "L" was on your right side, you would be sitting on a right-hand side transfer seat.


Please note: While we strive to ensure every product we label as "Made in the USA" really is 100% made in the USA, it is also important to understand that sometimes manufacturers make changes to their products, or for various reasons may receive components or materials that they would normally purchase domestically from an overseas supplier - and they don't necessarily let distributors (like us!) know that they've changed something about the product or where it is manufactured.

If you receive a product that PlumbingSupply.com® says is "Made in the USA" and the product states it was manufactured elsewhere, please contact us. We will happily replace or refund your purchase to your satisfaction.
