Frequently Asked Questions
What's the purpose of a shower seat or stool?

Seating within the bathroom can be vital for those with reduced mobility or balance.

Many people find it difficult to stand up for a sustained period of time.

Using some form of seating reduces the risk of falling, losing one's balance and may lessen associated anxiety.

This in turn promotes independence in the bathroom.

Most shower seats and shower stools are adjustable in height using a simple pin-clip on each of the legs.

What kind of shower seating is available?

Stools, benches and shower chairs with arms and backrests are all available.

Wall-mounted seats are also an option.

Can I sit down inside the shower cubicle itself?

Many individuals with compromised balance or strength may prefer to sit down for the duration of a shower. There are plenty of options to facilitate this.

A free-standing or or wall-mounted shower seat is a practical living aid for the bathroom.

For small cubicles with a flat-surfaced shower tray, a lightweight shower stool is often the best option.

Stools are available with three or four legs and often have minimal footprint dimensions.

Corner stools are also available, further saving space.

Will a shower stool or seat corrode?

Because this type of seating regularly gets wet, it's important they are made from non-corrosive materials like plastic and aluminium.

Will the seat slip?

Rubber or plastic feet fitted at the bottom of the legs reduce the chance of the seat slipping.

The actual sitting surface will usually be textured, for the same reason.

Drainage holes are present to avoid the puddling of water on the seat itself.

Do I have space for a free-standing shower stool?

Make sure you measure the space available in the shower and compare it to the footprint dimensions of the stool or chair before choosing free-standing seating.

Would a wall-mounted shower seat be suitable for a cubicle?

Again, measuring the dimensions of both the fitting bracket and the seat's protrusion from the wall are important first steps.

A qualified tradesmen will be necessary to fit a wall mounted seat.

Remember to check the weight bearing limit before choosing one, as sometimes wall-mounted seats do not carry the same load as free standing chairs.

Do perching stools allow me to stay more upright?

Perching stools typically stand fairly tall, allowing the user to semi-sit on their leading edge.

They are often useful at the bathroom sink, enabling the individual to remain in an upright posture, while reducing stress on the body.

I need a lot of support, are shower chairs with backrests available?

Chairs with armrests and backrests are available, giving the feeling of maximum safety and support while in the shower.

It's worth noting that this type of chair is typically reasonably large, so double check the footprint dimensions to make sure it fits, before choosing one.
