  • A barrier free shower typically has a threshold that is no higher than 2 ½”. When one considers that the average tub step-over height is 15” and the standard shower threshold height is 6”, it is obvious to see how much safer and more accessible a barrier free shower can be. A barrier free shower from Aging-In-Place Remodeling enables users with limited mobility to more easily step into the shower or move a wheelchair/walker over the threshold with minimal effort.

    Barrier Free Showers or Handicap Safe Showers are a popular home improvement in Vancouver BC. Barrier Free Showers are especially useful for the elderly or people with physical disabilities. This type of shower is very easy and safe to use as there is no tub or tall curb to climb over. The ability to get in and out of the shower easily is something many people take for granted until they experience health or safety issues that can make it difficult.

  • Transforming your current bathroom into a safe and accessible place is what M. Southin and Sons Contracting does best. Your new barrier free shower will improve your quality of life and make your home more enjoyable. Not only that but a professional bathroom renovation job can make a great positive impact on the resale value of your home too.

    Options to contain water: Your safety is our concern and there are a variety of ways we can contain water to the shower area and away from the bathroom floor:

    1. Graded floor – by pitching the floor pan and using a weighted shower curtain we direct flow of the water to the drain.
    2. Collapsible water barrier – a simple flexible water barrier allows wheelchairs to get into the barrier free shower area but keeps water off the bathroom floor.
    3. Edge/line drains – a great option to help keep water where it belongs, line drains contain water where it should be: in the shower.

    I have never had a customer to try that on ---the drains are expensive---but that is a simple way to build a barrier free shower.

    Contractor Talk has a lot of talk about those and photos.

Barrier free shower pan from AKW for an accessible wet room

This Barrier Free Bathroom features an open floor plan design with a zero threshold that is level with the bathroom floor. The accessible shower is also know as the euro shower or roll in shower because there is no barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom. The key to a good barrier free shower is that here is no bump as you enter the shower and the water drains back to the drain inside the shower and not out into the bathroom.
