A level access shower is a shower tray with a low threshold or even flush with the floor. The shower floor should be non slip to offer greater safety. If the shower is to be used with a wheelchair the tray must be able to hold the combined weight. There are various different sizes available, some will fit where the bath originally stood and use the current drainage system, whilst others will require new drainage.
Low level showers can be fitted with doors to prevent the rest of the bathroom getting wet when showering. Such doors should be wide enough to cater for a wheelchair if required. They should also form a waterproof seal to prevent any leaking. The doors should not be too heavy to operate, and be fitted with safety glass to prevent the glass shattering in broken. There are various types of doors available, such as; half height; air assisted to allow easy opening and closing; sliding or simple curtains.
