How Are Walk In Baths Different From Slide In Ones

by Winsor Baths CEO
Walk in bathtubs are one of the most common bathroom additions that homeowners opt for in order to experience comfortable bathing as well as relaxing hydrotherapy spa at home. They are great solutions for people with locomotor disabilities or those who face difficulty while getting up from a conventional tub. They generally have a door situated on one of their side walls to allow easy entry & exit for everyone. They even come equipped with head and seat cushions for extra convenience.

However, not all walk in baths are exactly what they’re advertised as. In fact, they have a really close cousin which is often mistaken as a ‘walk in’ option - but they are actually slide in tubs. Even though the ‘slide ins’ look almost like their ‘walk in’ siblings, both are not the same thing and have various differences, particularly in the area concerning how an individual can get out of and inside the tubs.

Walk Ins

Their name has been derived from the fact that they are characterised by a narrow doorway situated within their facade. There are also a couple of high walls which block both sides of the embedded seat, and a threshold which requires to be stepped over for entry & exit. As there is wall on either side, a user can get in & out in only one way, by walking in and walking out.

Slide Ins

Slide in tubs generally have a much wider door which can be opened for exposing the seat inside, thereby allowing the user to comfortably settle on it first without having to walk in or out. Once the person is seated inside the tub properly, he or she can close the door shut from inside.

As you can see, there is not really much of a difference between walk in and slide in bathtubs. However, the distinctions which are present can determine the level of comfort you wish to enjoy when bathing. If you are feeling confused as to which one you should go for, get in touch with local reputed suppliers. There are plenty of companies that provide walk in designer bathtubs throughout Australia. All you need to do is call them and ask about the products they offer for sale.

Buying a walk in tub can provide you with great luxury and comfort, but in order to reap the associated benefits, it is very important that you get a good product.
