Mayfair Range

At last, a range of affordable Walk-in-Bath all the family can use. It’s the same size as a conventional full-length bath but has the advantage of the Walk-in-Facility provided by a door at one end. At 1700mm or 1500mm long and with a door either side it makes the Mayfair adaptable to most bathrooms.

Complete with our Toughened Glass Shower Screen with Stainless Steel Fittings and you have a family Walk in Shower.

You’ll find that our website has many pages and is very informative. Perhaps it might take some time to see it all. However, this website is here to assist you as thoroughly as possible… and we don’t believe in being superficial when it comes to solving your bathing problem. We take pride in helping you find a bathing solution specific to your personal needs.

Have a look at the 4 – Step Process below to ascertain which side you require the door.

The 4 – Step Process

STEP 1)

MEASURE THE LENGTH AND WIDTH OF YOUR EXISTING BATH   Your new Walk In Bath will usually take the place of this existing bath.   Also, note if there are any windows directly above any part of the bath.  If so, measure the distance from the floor of the bath to the BOTTOM of the window.  Write down all measurements.

STEP 2)

MEASURE THE WIDTH OF EACH DOOR (and each hallway) leading from your front or back entrance door of your home, through every door and hallway leading to the bathroom where it will be installed.  Write down only the width of each one that is 26” or less.

Any regular door width of 26” or more is usually sufficient to allow any of our Walk In Bath entry into your bathroom. (Note: For certain bath models, this may require a temporary door assembly removal and replacement of your 26” doors).

Note: Common door widths are usually 26”, 28”, 30”, 32” or 36” They may ultimately measure up to ½ inch shy of any of these measurements.

If you have a 24” door width, by removing the door assembly you can get ALL of our models through that opening.  Additionally, you may choose to widen the 24″ door to a 28″ door, or wider, if it is feasible. This may also bring your door width up to current building codes and allow clearance for any walkers or wheelchairs.  Widening a 24″ door to a larger door can allow EVERY model in our line of Walk In Baths to fit through your doorway.

STEP 3)

DETERMINE WHICH DRAWING BELOW BEST DESCRIBES THE CONFIGURATION OF YOUR BATHROOM.
Directly below Step 4 are some common configurations of existing baths in relationship to the placement of the commode (or sink).  Simply determine which of the 8 bathroom drawings below best describes the configuration of your bathroom, and write down that number.

The reasons to include this step is that you need to determine whether you require a LEFT mounted door or a RIGHT mounted door on the face of the bath.  It is ALWAYS best to put the bath’s door where you have the most space available for easiest entry and exit into and out of the bath.

By selecting the correct configuration of your existing bathroom below, we can provide you with the door correctly mounted (LEFT or RIGHT) specifically for you.

STEP 4)

DETERMINE WHICH WALL OF YOUR EXISTING BATH HAS THE FIXTURES
(i.e. knobs, taps, spout, showerhead.)  Determine this by facing the long side (length) of your bath standing outside of it.  You will find your existing fixtures on either the “left wall”, “right wall” or “back wall” of the bath.

Based on your answers to Steps No 2, No 3 and No 4 you can ascertain if a “reversal of plumbing” will be needed when the Walk In Bath is installed. About 40% of the time, a “reversal of plumbing” is needed. With all of our models reversals can be done simply and easily under the bath, between the bathroom floor and the bath floor.
