Here are some recent job photos from a Handicap Accessible Shower conversion in Parkesburg, Chester County. This handicap accessible shower job involved removing an existing claw foot bathtub, wrapping it and placing it for storage.

After the old tub was removed, we had a clean space for the new installation.

The new Handicap Accessible Shower was proudly manufactured in the USA by Best Bath Systems. The new low threshold accessible shower measures 60×34, providing plenty of area for a larger individual. Best Bath’s high quality system made installation on the uneven floor a breeze. In this situation we utilized a .75 inch full accessible shower pan with rubber water stopper.

In addition to the .75in accessible lip, the customer choose to utilize the “semi-permanent” 3inch modular threshold to meet his current needs. If the need arises, the larger lip can be easily removed and full “.roll-in” access is returned.

This low threshold accessible shower installation included new Delta fixtures, a wall mounted, fold down shower seat, two grab bars, and a sliding shower bar. The whole project was capped with custom trim work and a coat of paint on all disturbed surfaces. The entire job took 2 days from start to finish!
