Shower for the Disabled - A Guide from MBD Bathrooms

Whatever the needs of you and your household, our range of shower products can help you achieve a comfortable, independent showering experience that is tailored towards you, your home and your family.

Here’s a look at some of the most popular options available to help you create a versatile shower for the disabled members of your household:

Shower for the Disabled - Wet Rooms

Spacious, practical and stunningly beautiful bathroom additions, if you’re considering creating a large shower for disabled access, wet rooms are an excellent option. Not only do they look fabulous, but because they are totally integrated into your bathroom architecture their size is only limited by the space you have available. If you still have a traditional bath, then removing it to make space for a wet room can, in many cases, give you a large enough shower for disabled access – and if anyone grumbles about missing their bath, then they’ll soon change their mind when they experience the bathroom luxury that only a wet room can provide.

The best bit: with our wet room kits, you’ll get everything you need to create the foundations of your wet room and significantly cut down on installation time. We also offer wet room drains by ACO, which come in a variety of attractive designs – and even an illuminated option for incredible bathroom lighting effects!

Shower for the Disabled – Walk-in Showers

If you’d like the open-plan feeling of a wet room but time, space or cost make them an unrealistic option, then consider a walk-in shower. For the disabled user they offer space and ease of access that is comparable to a wet room, but their traditional tray-and-screen design means that it’s much easier to make room for, and install, a walk-in shower. Combined with a foldable shower chair, a walk-in shower can make a significant difference to your shower experience if you have mobility difficulties; the largest examples can even accommodate some wheelchairs.

Another option is a shower screen. These can be fitted into a corner like a traditional square cubicle but, like a wet room, do not use a tray – making access to the shower for disabled users even easier.

Shower for the Disabled – Low Profile Shower Trays

Our range of Resinlite shower trays by MX Group are only 45mm high (52mm with upstands). MX’s standard stone resin trays are typically between 80mm and 110mm high – the slim Resinlite trays are a sleek and modern design, making them a stylish and practical addition to your shower. For the disabled user, this apparently small difference in height is one of many factors that can mean the difference between a relaxing shower experience and a mobility headache.

Resinlite trays come in many different dimensions to fit almost any standard shower cubicle; from square and rectangular trays to quadrant and offset quadrant trays. Their lightweight material makes them easy to install, and as well as being incredibly durable, our unbeatable online prices make them an instantly affordable option as well.
