The door can be removed from the common door hinges in order to give bathers easy access to difficult to clean places. Additionally, the polished stainless steel inward swing door’s lever lock was uniquely designed with an extended lever. The extension allows bathers to effortlessly lift the lever, bypassing bathers legs when locking the door. The lever lock creates a secure and watertight door seal, providing you with a safe, leak-free bathing experience.

Ella Acrylic Walk-in Tubs are vacuum formed from a solid, long-lasting acrylic sheet. The non-porous material in white gloss finish is easy to clean and impermeable to mold and mildew. Under the acrylic shell facade is a rust proof, stainless steel frame reinforced with multiple fiberglass mesh and gelcoat layers to ensure the durability of the tub’s structure. The frame has multiple leveling legs that can be adjusted for an easier installation and stronger support.

Ella walk-in bathtubs come with our unique Ella Dual Drain Technology (DDT) consisting of two 2” gravity driven drains with four 2” outlets, 2 overflows and 2 openers, allowing a fast, reliable drainage. Two caps are also included to cover up to 2 of 4 ports if needed. The 2” drain outlets can be connected to the standard 1 ½” house drain with a T or Y fitting and piping selected by a professional plumber. The drain pipe configuration and selection of the pipes and fittings is up to the homeowner or licensed plumber. However, for the most efficient drainage, please consider connecting to all 4 ports and to a 2” house drain if possible.

Some may wonder how an Ella brand drain can drain faster even though it’s connected to a 1 ½” house drain using a T or Y fitting. That’s because as the water drains, air is pushed through the 2 overflows creating a vent system and reducing the amount of air bubbles preventing a free flow of the water. As a result, this produces the fastest gravity driven drain in the industry. The average drainage time evaluated by our dealers range from only 50 seconds to a couple minutes based on tub size, condition of the house drain and configurations.

Ella’s flagship model, The Elite, is the most popular standard sized walk-in bathtub, measuring 30” x 52” with a spacious, 22” wide molded seat. It is recommended for average size bathers. The Royal and Petite share the same design as the Elite. However, the Royal is 2 inches wider, measuring 32” x 52” with an expanded, 24” seat. This model was created to accommodate larger body types and recommended for bathers who want a roomier bathtub interior. Conversely, the Petite is the smallest model amongst these three, measuring 28” x 52” with a 19” wide molded seat. This model is recommended for average or petite body types and ideal for smaller or narrow bathrooms.

The Deluxe is a longer tub at 30” x 55” with a comfortable, 19” molded seat. This pioneer model is designed for taller bathers who require additional legroom. Please note that the 28” wide Petite has the same seat width as Deluxe at 19.”

The uniquely long Ultimate measures 30” x 60” with a spacious, 21” molded seat. The Ultimate was designed to accommodate larger body types, people who need extended legroom, or bathers who prefer a more spacious bathtub interior.

The Elite, Royal, Petite and Ultimate models are equipped with the uniquely designed Ella patented 360° swivel tray that can hold your must-read book or favorite beverage for an added convenience to your experience.
