Walk-in showers

What is a walk-in shower?

How do walk-in showers differ from other showers? Unlike many showers, Premier Care walk-in showers standalone rather than as part of a bath. They also offer an ultra-low-level lip (from 40mm in height) providing a very small step into the shower tray. This ensures low-level access and reduces the risks of tripping. Making entering and exiting the shower safer for everyone using it.

Premier bathrooms do not look like disability bathrooms. We have all of the features which make our bathrooms accessible and safe for those living with mobility issues but we take great pride in creating bathrooms that are elegant, smart and stylish. Even when it comes to things like the shower seats – we use high-quality materials which compliment beautifully with the satin chrome shine of the fixtures and finishes. The grab bars are discreet and modern looking and blend in with the luxurious feel of the shower cubicles. For those who have mobility issues or disabilities, our bathrooms offer the brilliance of a walk-in shower, combined with the ease of use of a disability bathroom without sacrificing on style and comfort. For example, the Revive fixed panel shower not only has open access so you can walk in and out easily, a comfortable seat but also creates a fresh, modern look for your bathroom.

To ensure your safety and comfort, all our showers are fitted with low-access, slip-resistant trays; high-quality, tempered safety glass and attractive, comfortable seats. Easy to use thermostatically controlled water systems with Cool Touch technology, ensure a safe, constant water temperature and also stay cool to the touch while in use. Grab bars offer you extra security when you are getting into and out of the shower enclosure, and easy-clean wall panelling help eliminates unsightly grout and mould and make cleaning simple. In our extensive range, we also have wet rooms and disabled showers. Our solutions are designed to suit all manner of individuals and their needs. Our bathrooms do not only become the solution for one problem, they act as way to future proof your home, and make the bathroom enjoyable for all the family.



Walk-in showersWet room

What are the advantages of a wet room?

In a wet room, there are no shower trays to step into or shower doors to close – everything is on one level – making it the most accessible bathroom option for those who find it difficult getting in and out of the shower or bath. It’s a particularly good design for wheelchair users, who simply wheel their bathing chair into the right position and wash. There are additional benefits, too. Firstly, removing the bath or shower cubicle will create extra space in your bathroom. Secondly, the whole room is waterproofed with tiles from floor to ceiling, helping to prevent damp and mould. This usually also makes it easier to clean. Thirdly, a wet room can add considerable value to your property, as they are considered stylish and contemporary, although you’ll need a ‘standard’ bathroom as well to tick all the right boxes.

Walk-in showersWet room

How does a wet room work?

A wet room is designed to make bathing as easy as possible. It gets rid of any obstacles in the way – the shower tray and door – so you can simply enter the bathroom, turn on the shower and wash. The floor gently slopes towards a central drain, and all the walls are tiled, making the room entirely waterproof. Wet rooms are particularly good at accommodating changes in mobility. Seats and grab rails can be placed under the shower and the extra space makes it easier for carers to lend a hand, should one be needed in future. Wheelchair users can also continue to wash without worry.

What is a wet room?

A wet room is a waterproof bathroom where there is no shower tray to step into or shower cubicle door to close. The room is designed to be completely open, with a shower floor that’s flush with the rest of the bathroom. Wet rooms are extremely practical, particularly if you have mobility issues, as they eliminate the need to step into a shower cubicle or bath. An option like our Stimulate wet room is also very stylish, with the shower blending into a contemporary bathroom design. It’s also easier to clean, with fewer surfaces and corners to worry about. Wet rooms can be adapted to different sizes depending on your needs and the space available, and always come with slip-resistant tiling to make sure you’re extra safe.

How much does a mobility bathroom cost?

All Premier Care wet rooms, walk-in baths and walk-in showers are custom-designed to fit your bathroom, so there are no set prices on our products. To accurately price your new bath or shower installation we consider many factors, including the layout of your bathroom, the space available, and your individual needs. That’s why we offer a free, no-obligation home visit. During our visit, we assess the electrics, drainage, radiators, water pressure and other building and installation considerations. It’s then up to you to choose which decoration you’d like, and other elements such as sanitary ware, tiling and flooring.

We manage your project from design through to installation, coordinating every person required to complete the bathroom on time – surveyors, plasterers, electricians and plumbers – and removing all rubbish when we’re done.

What size of bath is best?

Baths and showers come in many shapes and sizes. In the past, you may have opted for a shower thinking your bathroom would be too small for a bath. Our ultra-compact option, the Oasis, may change your mind. Half the length of a traditional bath, but twice as deep, it allows for a deep soak in a small space. The contoured, slip-resistant seat will ensure you are completely supported.

The Cove and the Tranquillity are also popular compact options. The Cove comes with an optional shower canopy, so the bathtub can be used as an easy access shower, complete with an adjustable shower head. The Tranquillity has the lowest door entry of any walk-in bath in the UK and a wide opening door.

The Assure is also on the smaller side. It has an inward-opening door with low-level step and comes with two seating options: the standard bath seat or an extension seat. Or, if you have a standard bathroom layout, you may be interested in our Sanctuary model. This also comes with an optional shower canopy and adjustable shower head. Finally, the extra-deep, slip-resistant seat design of the Haven offers the best in comfort and practicality.

If size isn’t a worry for you and you have plenty of space to play with, we have several standard full-length and larger walk-in baths available. The Empower is a full-length bath with low-level access and a Simple Lift power seat (available as part of two removable seat options). It also comes with optional Hydrovescent and Chromotherapy systems. The Momentum is also full-length and incorporates the Simple Lift powered seat to ensure you are safely lifted in and out and over the side of the bath. Space is a common obstacle and individuals often feel they must choose between a bath or a shower. The Paradise combats this issue. ‘P’ shaped, it combines the pleasure of bathing with the practicality of showering.

All our baths also come with the option of a shower canopy. Choose from four different shower heads to complete your bath and shower combination.

FAQsWalk-in baths

How do I use a walk-in bath?

Walk-in baths are easy to use. We have a number of different options so whatever your mobility capabilities are we will be able to find a way to facilitate you and ensure that you can continue using and enjoying your baths for as long as you wish to. There are two main features that provide easy access to your bath. In all of our models we provide low level access doors. This feature enables you to easily climb in and out of the bath without having to climb over the side. All of the doors are fitted with a life time guarantee seal, so you never have to worry about leakages, with a choice of baths where the doors open either inwardly or outwardly. Finally, there is also the easy to use lever-style lock to open and shut the bath door. This means that you will have a good grip on the handle and it’s simple to operate if you are unable to manoeuvre around small or fiddly latches – especially when your hands are wet. The second feature the Simple Lift powered seat is consciously designed for complete ease of access to enhance your bathing experience. The powered seat allows easy entry and exit with one simple control. Powered seats are available in the Empower, Momentum and Paradise bath models.

These baths are double the height of a standard bath to ensure your whole body is submerged in water. However, we also have a few full-length walk-in baths in our range for those who prefer lying down. These come with the option of a powered seat to gently lower you down.
