Types of folding seats for the bathroom and their purpose

Daily hygiene procedures can become a serious problem for the elderly, people with disabilities or diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The same can be said about people undergoing recovery after surgical operations and women who are in the last months of pregnancy – both of them face temporary problems that restrict freedom of movement. A properly selected and installed folding seat can facilitate the use of the shower.

A special seat for the bathroom will be the best solution for compact rooms thanks to a well-thought-out folding design.


Mount such a seat on a load-bearing wall in the bathroom or shower room. Due to this, a person with limited mobility gets the opportunity to independently take water procedures as comfortably and safely as possible.


Types of folding seats

The catalog presents two types of universal folding shower seats:

  • Plastic-the seat is made of high-strength, durable plastic, and the frame of the structure is made of stainless steel, which is maximally resistant to moisture. Such products are able to withstand a heavy load, are durable and aesthetic. They fit well into the home and public interior;
  • Wooden-in such models, the seat is made of natural wood treated with special impregnations that make it completely immune to moisture. Wooden folding seats on a stainless steel frame do not lose their functionality even with regular exposure to moisture. The protective coating of the wood protects it from deformation and damage, so that the seat looks like new even after many years of operation.

 

Any of the seats, plastic or wooden, can be installed both in residential premises in an apartment, a private house, a cottage or a bath, and in public – in special medical institutions, sanatoriums, hotels, nursing homes, airports, train stations and other places that involve bathing areas.
