Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "What is Closed Cell Foam?"
A. Closed cell foam is a non absorbent flexible foam material used to provide padding that will be comfortable, easy to clean and will not soak up water or other liquids.

Q. "What is Rubberwood?"
A. Rubberwood comes from the 'rubber tree' and is often used in high end furniture because of its quality attributes like dense grain, attractive look, resistance to shrinkage and warping, and works well with many different finishes.

Q. "I want a seat in my shower, but I'm not handicapped. Will these work for me?"
A. ADA compliant shower seats are terrific additions to your shower whether they will be used for a handicapped bather or simply for a place to sit while relaxing under the soothing shower spray. For items to be labeled ADA compliant means that they are manufactured to meet specific levels of usability, and to hold a minimum amount of weight, which means they will work well for most shower situations, regardless of the mobility of the bather. Your only issue is which seat to select!

Q. "Why should I choose a padded shower seat over a non-padded shower chair?"
A. So long as you are filling the requirements for stability and safety, the padding on a shower chair is usually a simple matter of preference. However, if the user has skin breakdown issues, or is prone to having pressure marks when a standard shower seat is used, quality padding, such as the ones on the seats on this page, is a must-have.

Q. "Why are some seats offered with cutouts?"
A. Cut out style shower seats, also called Euro-style shower chairs, or U-shaped shower chairs, are designed for maximum accessibility when showering. The above U-shaped padded shower chairs offer the support needed from a secure wall mounted shower chair with the ability to wash completely without shifting around. This is especially important when the bather needs assistance when showering or cannot adjust adequately to reach everywhere when using a standard shower seat.
