One thing to consider when designing a handicap shower is accessibility. Soap, shampoo, wash cloths and other bathroom accessories need to be easily reachable and at a good height. Having to bend down or stand up to reach bathroom essentials is dangerous and could lead to accidents. Your faucet also needs to be positioned at the right height, and your handicap shower should be equipped with a handheld device to facilitate quick and easy control.
Our tile showers usually have a cement mortar base that lie beneath the tile and it is designed to slope about 1/8 inch per foot. This allows water to reach the drain easier. Your entire modified bathroom should have a subtle tilt towards the shower. This will help water spray reach the drain easier. All-in one shower pans
Handicap shower doors are water-tight, but you will still want to invest in a good shower corner with weighted corners. This will help prevent spills or excess water making its way onto your bathroom floor.
