Ella Walk In Tub Door Shape
Different Types of Doors & Door Selection Options
Picking the correct door type is an important detail that you don’t want to overlook. There are ‘U’ shaped doors that sport a modern design, and they’re perfect for the common bather. ‘L’ shaped doors are great for those with mobility issues as they allow for easy transfer from wheelchair to the walk-in bathtub and back. Outward swing doors allow for more room inside the tub, but may require more space in the bathroom to accommodate the door. Ella’s outward swing door tubs have either a 2 or 3-latch locking system to keep the door securely closed and free from leaks, but still easy to operate. Lastly, inward swing doors are are great space savers and perform well in smaller bathrooms as some bathrooms don’t offer the space needed to accommodate an outward swinging door in walk-in bathtub.
A 2-latch door system provides a more secure and watertight door seal than the conventional single latch system. This provides you with a leak-free bathing experience unlike our competitors who typically use a single latch/lever system.
The unique 3-latch door lock system allows for equal pressure to the door gasket throughout its entirety and guarantees a leakproof door seal. This locking mechanism truly differentiates Ella’s Bubbles from its competitors.
