Walk In Bath Tubs
SILVER CROSS is not a walk in bathtub manufacturer. This free service compares walk in bath tub suppliers and finds recycled or low priced new walk in bath tubs. Walk-in bathtubs allow users to enter a bath tub without climbing in through watertight doors which swing open when the tub is empty about a few inches above the floor. Walk-in bathtubs may also contain hand-held shower nozzles, standard shower heads and/or jacuzzi-style therapeutic water jets. Note: A bath lift is a lower cost alternative to a walkin bathtub.

- Some walk-in bathtubs use an inward-swinging door while others use an outward-swinging door.
- An inward-swinging door allows the user to walk directly into the tub, but he or she must maneuver around the door once inside the tub. As the tub fills, the pressure of the water keeps the door closed tightly. Until the water is completely drained, the door will not open easily. This could be troublesome in an emergency. Most walk-in bathtubs sold today use an inward-swinging door because the design is cost effective.
- Some suppliers think that an outward-swinging door is preferable. As long as there is enough clearance for the door, the user can enter the walkin bathtub and close the door without excessive maneuvering. The main advantage of an outward-swinging door is a quicker escape during an emergency, as the door can still be opened quickly if the tub is full.
