Walk-In Tub Conversion Kit Info

Do you have a bathtub in your home that's just not safe to get into and out of now that your mobility is impaired? Do you prefer a sit-down or lay-down tub bath to standing upright in the shower? AmeriGlide can help! Our AmeriGlide Bathtub Walk-In Conversion Kit modifies your existing bath tub to create a walk in tub. Our installers remove a 27-inch section of the front tub wall and replace it with a pebble granite-colored lip, which is easy for even people with bad eyesight to differentiate from the tub shell for safety purposes. The lip reduces the size of the opening to a 24-inch wide gap. On the inside of the tub entry, several magnets are set into the lip to hold a stainless steel door that is made with an automotive-grade rubber seal. The door weighs less than a quart of milk, and all you have to do is hang it from the included pegs located on the tub's interior and let it fall - the magnets attach to the steel and hold the rubber seal in place to prevent leaks. This amazing AmeriGlide Bathtub Walk-In Conversion Kit lets you enjoy the luxury and comfort of a bath without the fall hazards of having to step over a high tub wall. Add an AmeriGlide Bath Lift if you have trouble getting in and out of the tub on your own, and you're all set!

 

The AmeriGlide Bathtub Walk-In Conversion Kit takes about 2 hours to install, and is usable after 24 hours have passed. Please note that the retail price of this kit includes the cost of installation. This conversion kit is compatible with any kind of tub shell - even steel, cast iron, and fiberglass! We can also perform conversions on garden tubs and jacuzzi tubs! NOTE: Installing this kit on a cast-iron tub will incur a $75.00 upcharge.

Pros
Safe, cost effective, and diminishes the potential for falls climbing in and out of a full sided bathtub.
Cons
None
Service & Delivery
Quick response and on time delivery.
Excellent product, that is easily installed in a couple of hours. Cost effective and very well received, by both elderly residents and their families for its ease of entering and exiting.

A Little About Myself
Pros
A highly affordable alternative to a full walk in bath tub or a remodeling job that will save you hundreds, perhaps thousands of dollars.
Cons
The alteration tot he tub is permanent, so if you ever decide you want a normal bathtub in the bathroom in the future, you'll need to spring for a new tub shell, which will cost about $200.00.
Bargain-savvy shoppers looking for a walk in tub solution will love this conversion kit. It installs quickly, is usable within a day after the job is finished, and allows for easy step-in access and sealing. Just be sure to check the rubber seal on the dropdown door regularly to prevent leaks.
